This is Joy. She's blind. She was in a high kill shelter and this
fantastic woman who runs a cat sanctuary pulled her out hours before she
was to be put down. When I saw Joy
she was in a box holding onto a teddy bear. I fell in love with her. I
painted this for her...it's where I hope she will be very soon...with
her teddy bear in a warm, soft, safe home.
