When I Got Laid Off During The Pandemic, I Decided To Start Making Portraits Of My Cat That I Later Turned Into A Calendar (13 Pics)
A couple of years ago, I misread an email from my vet saying that Boo would likely develop Chronic Feline Kidney Disease within 2 years. I mistakenly thought that he had two years left to live. He was 16 at the time, and I have never had a cat live that long, so I figured I would spoil him rotten during his last time on earth.
I considered the time he went missing for a couple of weeks while I was traveling back east to see family and friends. After posting flyers in the neighborhood, I found out that he visited several neighbors on a regular basis, for additional breakfasts, lunch, and second dinners.
This made me wonder about his many other lives... When I got laid off during the pandemic, I had time to paint the following images. I had enough to make them into a calendar for 2021. The calendar even got on the national news! The 2022 calendar is almost ready for printing.
Feel free to leave a comment to suggest new Boo portraits, like "Boo Hefner" or "Boorak OBooma" (those are in consideration for the 2023 calendar.)
