A Magnificent Cat

The cat that used to share our lives was an outstanding example of a well-muscled big helping of a furry beast. He was a large eighteen pound mixed Maine Coon breed with white paws and delicate silky hair that was a shade of champaign pink. He did more than meow. He actually sang cat songs. The cat would climb up high trees and come down forwards instead of backwards like most cats. Our cat was so fascinating that once he passed away we could never find another that was his equal so we remained catless.

The illustration above is for the poem Magnifi Cat from my book manuscript The Book of Marvelous Cats. This one pays homage to our beautiful cat.
