Be the Change for Whiskers: An Amazing Cat; An Amazing Story

Every cat has a story, I am sure. if only we knew what really was being thought behind the mysterious contemplative eyes of each feline that we encountered in life…

I am sure that we would be humbled.

The cat pictured above is a regal feline named “Whiskers”. Resilient and strong for sure, Whiskers has endured neglect in her past life, yet her current caretakers say she is the most grateful of felines. She asks little, but gives much.

WhiskersWhiskers is a quiet cat who seems nonplussed by other cats and is well acclimated to domestic life. She is a mature lady, approximately 15 years old, and certain to give someone a lot of love in her remaining years.

Sadly, her foster family who has been nurturing her back to health cannot keep her.

When my friend Robyn Harton shared her story with me, it moved me in much the same way as Little Meow’s story did. I wanted to draw her picture, and I wanted to help her find a home.

Life has been a challenge for Whiskers. It is time to give her a change and let her see the good side of humanity. Can you help Be the Change for Whiskers?

Do you know someone who might be wanting Whiskers’ love? She is in the Richmond, VA area, but can travel to a good home in the United States. Can you help her find a home?

You can learn more about her and how to contact her foster family here at CrystalsAndJewelry.com Blog & News.

Whoever gives Whiskers a permanent home will receive her portrait shown above as an extra bonus.

Feel free to re-post the drawing of Whiskers, if you would like, to help her find a home. Please do credit the image with “Artwork by BZTAT” with a link to this blog.

If you are not inclined to be involved in pet rescue, that is fine. I hope that you will still share in the celebration of this amazing cat’s life through my artwork.

To me, the best art is motivated by a deeply felt experience, and that certainly is the case with the story of Whiskers.

    Thank you BZTAT! This is so wonderful. The drawing is pawsome — but then yours always are. 🙂 Thank you! I hope we can find Whiskers a super forever home soon!

    Aw that portrait is spectacular. I wish I was in Richmond because I would be more than happy to open my home to Whiskers. I hope someone scoops her up soon.

    What a lovely lady and her portrait is terrific. We are purring she finds a home soon. We will have Mommy repost and help get the word out.

    A true beauty. Praying for her loving, forever home to find her right away. They will be inviting a jewel into their lives!

  5. What a beautiful soul! I love the painting too, as always. Your work is so vibrant and compelling. Thanks for posting about Whiskers. She deserves a place to call home in her later years. Thanks for Blogging the Change.

    I think that she ought to stay @ Richmond, given her age. BUT — if she doesn't have a home in 30 days, maybe we should talk about her moving to Texas with me and Gracie and Buster!

      Whiskers has already been in the foster home in Richmond well over 3o days. If you are interested, we can get you connected with her foster family to get more info.

    Wonderful kitty! If Myrrh had not already pronounced herself as an ONLY cat, Whiskers might end up in the Midwest.
