Though I sketched this in 2008, I immediately thought of posting it again as we had to put down my sweet Blackie yesterday. She was a spunky, independent little thing, looking more like a lynx than a cat. Of her 4 other littermates, she was the most skittish ... but every once in a while, she'd honor you by rubbing your leg or letting you give her a quick pet. She came home this weekend with an aggressive tumor along with FIV.... We will all miss seeing her sleek body streaking through the woods and nesting with her siblings each night. Rest in Peace, Blackie.
