Sweet Fiona is a timid girl, but easily one of the most beautiful cats I've seen in a while! She is a soft, plush pillow of long, solid gray fur, with pure white accents that enhance the beauty of her face. In my opinion, her snow white bowtie of a mustache, and the golden/green eyes set her apart from the others. It's hard not to be struck by her gorgeous physical appearance.

Fiona is always very curious about me whenever I come by to visit, but likes to observe my presence from a vantage point above. She's one of those cats who seem to actually listen when you speak to them, and her expressive eyes will convince you that she understands! At any given moment I can look up to where she's perched and see her fixed, calm gaze following my every move. And listening. I do seem to fascinate her, but she's still a little shy about physical contact. However, lately I think she is becoming more comfortable with me, and comes down from her perch to enjoy a fast-paced romp around the room chasing a laser beam "mouse" with the other cats. Frankly, Fiona is the best beam hunter in the group - she lets it come to her, and then a lightning quick paw smacks it down [or at least, it would if the beam were a real mouse!]

My God, Kimberly! Your watercolor technique is simply magnificent! You've really captured Fiona. Once upon a time, in Santa Monica, I lived with a cat who looked very much like, if not identical to her. Bravo.

I love how you've captured the liveliness and cautiousness in the cat's eyes. Love your work!

What a beautiful girl, Fiona. I love our own cat and she is our heart and wonderful the work you are doing to help kitties looking for family to love. I guess you know how I feel about your work as I have been following for 50 years.
