Up until the age of 6 she had lived only in a cage, on a concrete floor, had never been taken for a walk, had never experienced a lead, walked on grass, been inside a house or slept on a comfy bed.
Yet she is the gentlest soul you could possibly imagine.
Now, despite being afflicted with arthritis, she has a very happy life in rural Devon with devoted owners and all the home comforts she never previously enjoyed. She has also now had her portrait painted. It must be said that she greeted this news with indifference. A bit of crispy bacon, however, was a different matter.
Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for looking at my paintings.
