Post image for Oreo

Oreo liked her water fresh and cold and preferably running. Mom Kim would have to push her out of the way when brushing her teeth. Kim remembers, “Oreo liked catnip (but only on the carpet, never on the hardwood) and chasing after the laser pointer light. She liked turkey and sushi but didn’t care for deli roast beef. She could not be bothered to hunt, not even spiders. She loved to be brushed.” Learn more about Kim and Oreo’s life together in her blog post, Elegy for Cleo. Warning: It is heartbreaking.

About this Portrait

Jennifer has always had a soft spot for animals, and delving into the life of an animal who the world now misses was an emotional task. She says, “Oreo was the first portrait I painted of a loved one who was recently and dearly departed. I was honored to capture her spirit.”

My comments are always moderate. What you need is arbitration. Oreo looks like a good arbitor although she might be a little severe.
