Cat Sanctuary

A New Look at Some Favourites

Ann, one of our Kitty Comforters, visits regularly on a Sunday afternoon with her two daughters, Ava and Selena. Both girls have a magic touch with cats.   Imagine my delight when some new pictures arrived in my inbox – Selena has a magic touch with a pencil too!

Selena says:
“I can only come on Sundays because I work during the week but I wish I could come to the sanctuary more often. It’s my favourite place to be besides my own home!! My absolute favourite cat there is Puffin, he’s perfect and beautiful and I love him…and my other favourite is Dirky. I sponsor both of them!

Puffin – CC










Other friends I love are Daisy, Yoda, Darwin, Renee, Peppercorn, and Dell!

I have two cats at home, Zoe and Oreo, and they are both great!! I’ve wanted to draw some of the cats for a while now but I wanted to practice a bit since I don’t draw animals often. 🙂

The 6 cats that I drew are all favourites of my family!”

When these pictures started going the rounds there was instant interest in matching image with original – and it was surprisingly easy!  Selena’s pictures are so full of the personality of her models.

We’ll look forward to seeing what else will come from her talented fingers!
