On October 21st I wrote about my painting inspiration you may recall. Houston is his name, a male cat, with strong hunting instincts. He is what I refer to as a 'special needs' cat. Kind of brainless and hard headed, a huge muscle with fur all over it, a clown and a wanna-be-hunter.
This week Houston decided to chase a bird and next thing you know he dissappeared from the back yard. This is a concern since he is not allowed outside without supervison. We went outside calling his name, over and over...worried that the worst had happened when he finally responded with a yelp. Houston cries like a baby, but where was he ? We could not see him. The bird was long gone. Houston reappeared in the neighbors back yard.
He had jumped the fence and pathetic for a hunter the ol' boy couldn't figure out how to get back over the fence. After propping a ladder, calling and coaxing we tried the neighbors front door but no answer, so we were forced to jump the fence, throw him back into our yard and call it a day.
The painting is done, it's called 'Furry Sarape' and features Houston as the hopeless hunter, enjoy.
