Introducing eleanor


Eleanor is the first cat I have, I always had dogs and preferred them but this kitty stole my heart. Eleanor is 4 months old, she appeared in my life in a miraculous way, I did not rescue her, that little kitty saved me.


Simply his presence, his amusing pranks achieved what no anxiolytic or antidepressant could do. His games, jumping, biting and purring are the best ally to transmit an authentic calm and relief in being

Definitely animals are light beings that deserve to be treated with respect, unfortunately there are many people who see cats as pests.

They take the life of these defenseless animals in their hands killing them with ground glass in their meals or poison, to these actions the reality of my country is added (Venezuela), whose economic crisis causes the abandonment of pets they also die of hunger in the streets, they suffer the consequences of a dictator who keeps his country in the worst crisis in history.

Eleanor is one less in the streets, we support the adoption the kittens and puppies need us, we do not participate in the sale of pets (they are not an object).


I hope you liked the painting

Thanks for your support
