Buy this cat

An original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing of the cat from Lightship, in best surprised-by-the-foghorn style, is up for bidding now on eBay, here, as part of an auction in support of Anjellicle Cats Rescue. Anjellicle describes themselves as “a no-kill, all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are a member of the Mayor's Alliance and a New Hope Partner with the New York Animal Care & Control (ACC). For over ten years, this Hell's Kitchen shelter has been a lifeline for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens. In addition, we work closely with the ACC to pull out those who are in danger of being euthanized due to overcrowding.”

Anyone who ponies up for this watercolor will receive it signed, personalized, whatever you like. And check out the rest of the auction for art by other illustrators and a long list of New Yorker cartoonists, too.

Thanks for bidding!

IN CONCLUSION: The auction is over, and I’m happy to announce that the cat here raised a respectable chunk of change for Anjellicle Cats Rescue. Thanks to everyone who bid!
