When I was still in Johannesburg I was lucky enough to meet a wonderful cat called Remedios (a.k.a Weedy) while I was renting a cottage from my cousin Xanthe and her husband Robin. Weedy is a lovely fluffy thing who was deeply suspicious of me for the first six months I was living there. Then she started visiting me in the mornings and greeted me when I got home. Our friendship blossomed and I discovered how truly awesome she is. Robin is her number one fan, so I decided to create a portrait of her for him.
