Tail, a black and white high contrast black painting, featuring Mookie, his tail, and Dino, by Elizabeth Lisa Petrulis

Mookie’s luxurious tail is featured in near silhouette here. Dino lost his in an accident. (His Elizabethan collar shows up in paintings I’ll post later.)

Frightened and hurt Dino became lost in the woods and our search was unsuccessful. The next day, by instinct, we brought Mookie who led us to the injured Dino.

Strife was often the end game of a play session between these two cats. Several people have used the term “Yin and Yang” to discuss these paintings. Topper and Lucy certainly had opposite (though not always complimentary) temperaments.
