The model of this painting is Lily, whose path I crossed 2 days ago. At home, Lily is a sweet, playful kitten/cat. On this particular day, she turned into the cat from Stephen King's novel, Pet Semetary. Growling, Spitting, Hissing.
All because of a toe nail trim. That's all. No surgery, no temperature taking, no probing, no cleaning her ear, etc. Just a toe nail trim. Her Mom doesn't know, until now, that this has been painted. (PS- I owe you a print)
