FACES OF RESCUE 100 CATS: Fingal 11/100

"Fingal" - 8x8 Oil on Panel

Meet Fingal. He is a rescue from Cat Angels in Cary. Back in August Cary Animal Control was called in to assist a woman whose house was overrun with Siamese and Siamese mixes.
Fingal's current owner's cat (Foppa) was very ill at the time and one of the last times that Foppa cuddled up with her was when they were watching the news and there was a story about the rescue. The owner decided to go and meet the cats that were available for adoption and during the visit Fingal was the one who picked her as his new owner. The rescue was a little worried about being able to adopt him out because he was a tuxedo and did not have the classic siamese markings - except for his cutest crossed eyes!
