It’s been six years since my beloved Bengal, Sissifus passed away.

Sissifus (adopted name), was an almost human like cat with an apricot belly who loved the water. Over the years I sketched many of his moods and poses – the picture above was one of a series of portraits drawn with pencil.

No doubt today Sissifus would have been a ‘Cat of Instagram‘ with copious images posted, all adulterated with filters so I’m glad I kept the drawings which in my eyes capture the real essence of his personality.

Always in my heart Sissi x
