Congratulations and thank you to Kym Detrick who had the final bid on the print of “Peaches and Peonies” last night at 11:46 p.m.! Because of her generosity, FosterCat will receive $130, and just in time to rescue more adult cats as kittens are arriving in earnest already at shelters.

Donations were also being made to FosterCat through MyThreeCats.com and on Peaches’ BFF Eva’s blog, so Peaches and I can’t wait to see all the generosity people offered through Peaches’ simple request—consider senior pets for adoption, and simply be aware of a few special health conditions, and your senior can live many happy healthy years longer than we’d ever expected them to live before now.

Thank you to Alexa Howald of FosterCat for guest blogging to tell us about FosterCat and the importance of adopting and caring for senior cats, to Ingrid King of the Conscious Cat for writing an article about health care for senior cats in honor of Peaches’ birthday, to Linda Mohr for congratulating Peaches and telling us about her senior girls, to Marg for telling us about Squeaky and to Eva for being Peaches’ BFF and to her mom Renee for allowing computer privileges so Eva can communicate with Peaches.

Peaches appreciates your interest in and support of senior cats. She enjoyed a wonderful 100th birthday yesterday, gobbling a whole can of salmon pate through the day! I can tell when she gives me her special look, however, that every day is a celebration, and I love her just as much.

The print which Kym will receive is an 11″ x 14″ giclee, the highest quality reproduction method true to color with archival inks, printed on matte-finish archival paper, which I sell for $75.00.

In one way or another, I make donations for animal welfare through every piece of artwork in donating pieces for auctions or through the portraits I create. I also offer other sizes of giclee prints, and have a special offer which includes a donation with for purchase of a full-size print. I sell the print for $150, but $25.00 of that will go directly to a senior pet adoption program of your choice. Please visit Senior Pet Adoption Program on this blog.

For those who are still interested in a print of “Peaches and Peonies”, I offer several options in size and price:

  • The most affordable is an 8″ x 10″ photo print double-matted and framed in an 11″ x 14″ mahogany frame for $45.00 plus shipping. I also offer this as a matted and framed 5″ x 7″ for $25.00, but the image loses detail at that point, though it’s still very beautiful as a small wall piece.
  • I also offer various sizes of digital prints, which are not archival but are still very true to color and clear in detail. An 11″ x 14″ of this print is $25.00, and other sizes are available.

All of these items can be found on my website.
