This is one of my sister's cats. She claims he was laughing in this photo, and I'm a believer. He looks like a cat with a great sense of humor and that's the kind I like. I'm not sure what happened to his ear. I suspect it happened long before my sis adopted him, but it doesn't appear to hold him back. I painted him against a bold background to bring out the beauty of grey and to catch the unique look he has going on with the ear thing.
This is her other kittie. He doesn't look quite as confident, but he has beautiful tiger-like markings. I suspect he's a sweetie pie.
