The "star" of the pen and ink piece seen here is my mother's beloved furball, Kitty Car Lyle. Car Lyle was my 7th birthday present ... mind you, both she and my mom had another idea in mind! She quickly "changed sides" and became my mother's cat ... or rather, my mother became Lyle's human!
Lyle was a Manx with beautiful black and white markings, gorgeous, cashmere-like shiny fur, and a personality that redefined the words "feisty" and "independent!" Sadly, she is no longer with us today, as she passed nearly a year ago at the age of 22! Kitty Car Lyle lived a long, loving, and wonderful life with her best friend, my momma. She was far more than just a cat, she was even beyond that of a typical family member ... she was a tremendous source of comfort, calm, peace, support, unconditional love and joy for my mother, and for that I will always be grateful. She was, most definitely, a best friend and soulmate :).
While she is no longer in her furry body, her spirit and energy remains strong, and she most certainly will not soon be forgotten!
I am so thankful that I took the time (many, many hours in deed!), to create this picture in her likeness, as it truly captures her "kitty purrsonality!" I hope that you enjoy viewing this unique pen and ink!
