My cat Moofie, who was a regular visitor to my twitch drawing feed and a regular companion of mine since 2001 passed away Wednesday. I started this drawing on Monday after i took Moofie to the vet hospital. I launched into it as a fund raiser to help with the cost of his care, and when i finished the pencil drawing the word from the vet was he was doing ok. Unfortunately, by the end of the day Wednesday we were with him when he passed away.
When faced with finishing this drawing, which had changed from a drawing of hope for his recovery to a drawing in memory of him, I added our three other cats that we have lost over the past three years - Momo, Hime and Shmooly, and then added a Halo for Moofie himself. It’s... an established thing in Megatokyo, after all.
Why i drew Kimiko petting Moofie I really dont know. It’s just what came out. I have decided to keep these drawings in memory of not only moofie, but the others i’ve lost.
Thank you to everyone who has offered their support and kind words this past week. It helped me get through a difficult week. Thank you.
