In late September, my cat & best friend, Uno, died.

Losing a pet is never easy; we miss them, but we also cherish their memory.

I thought it would be nice to remember her with an #Inktober style celebration of life.

So I give you Day 1 of #UNOvember

I guess people normally post the drawing prompts for the month, so here's the list for #UNOvember

I made it to help me figure out how to tell Uno's story. But you're welcome to use the list for your own drawing challenge, if you want to.
#UNOvember Day 2 - Bench

We first saw Uno sitting on a stone bench at a void deck (an open space on the 1st floor of Singapore public apartment blocks).

Hi everyone. Meet Minion. (Mignon when she's cute.) #Caturday #CatsOfTwitter
Mignon is 13 weeks old, was adopted from Last Chance Animal Rescue and has a purr the size of Texas. I've never had a tortoise shell kitty before and she is really quite beautiful. She is a mix of blueish grey and peach.
She's pretty confidential for a baby. Usually, a new addition to the family, although quarantined for the first few days, hides so well that you start to get paranoid that she somehow managed to escape even though you haven't opened any doors or windows since last seeing her.

Five years ago, I was shacked up in a wobbly shed at the bottom of a garden.

I was a single cat with three tiny kittens to feed.
The pretty lady who owned that shed didn't know I was living in it.

I used to sneak in through a hole at the back.

I gave birth to my three kittens in there.
At the other end of the garden to the wobbly shed there was a warm house with pillows and fires and food cupboards.

I wanted to live there with the pretty lady and her two fat, lazy, overfed cats.

Thread: Had to explain to someone why neutering a cat before they breed is ethical and outweighs the other possible end result of letting them repeatedly breed, then watching authorities horrifically poison all with strychnine. 🙈 and people wonder why I prefer animals.
I’m lucky. Where I live, thanks to a few hard workers, the cat population is pretty much controlled. But that’s thanks to hard work and effort of people that care. It doesn’t just happen. Others take that for granted.
Red Sea resorts like Hurghada, Sharm and Dahab are over run with cats and there’s consistent poisoning. There’s no change. It’s horrific to watch. It’s dangerous to humans and it’s so unnecessary. El Gouna is a humane, ethical city and long may that continue.

This 12th-century manuscript has instructions on various arts and crafts. The section De imponendo auro has advice on illuminating manuscripts with loose gold leaf (BL, Harley MS 3915, fol. 12r-v)…#illuminatedmanuscripts #medievaltwitter #artsandcrafts
It’s from Theophilus’s De diversis artibus, compiled c.1125. This is before gesso was being used, as it instructs to take the clear part of the beaten egg white, and paint it on to the manuscript where the gold is to be applied
The best bit is this:
et hora oportet te a vento cavere, et ab halitu continere, quia si flaveris, petulam perdes et difficile reperies -
