If you were to cut my heart open, you would find that a large chunk of it is purely devoted to my love for animals. When I was asked to paint wine glasses featuring not only one, but TWO one-eyed cats, my heart swelled. I have never painted animals before, so I was extremely nervous. I mean it’s basically like painting someone’s child. Pet owners are crazy! I know. I am one.
Frankie Jean (the darker one) and Jovie Jade are one-year-old cats, who coincidentally, are both missing an eye. Frankie and Jovie were adopted from C.A.R.E Rescue in Columbia, SC. When Frankie was found, she was a sick little kitten with a terrible eye infection. In order for her to make a full recovery, her eye had to be removed. Jovie was hit by a car as a small kitten and had many injuries, including a broken mandable. As a result of the trauma to her face, her eye also had to be removed.
Frankie and Jovie, currently living in South Carolina with their loving owners, are happy and have no idea they are different from any other cat. They spend their days running around as fast as they can, climbing on their cat tree and taking naps in their favorite sunny spots.
