Kitten Irwin

Drawing of a tuxedo kitten

Hi, I’m Irwin.  I was found all alone in a Seal Beach Park by a lady walking her dog.   I was about seven weeks old and very thankful to be saved from the street, but VERY scared.  I was brought to SBACC and then I went to a foster home for a short time.   At first I would hiss at my foster mom and the other kittens.  She would pick me up anyway and give me lots of kisses and pets and I would just melt in her arms. I wasn’t treated very well by people when I was on the street so it was hard for me to trust but I’m getting better each day.  I no longer hiss and hide and I’m getting used to meeting new people.  I am playful and enjoy playing with the other kittens and all our toys.  I need a home with a patient Mom or Dad who will give me plenty of time to adjust to a new home.   I’m shy but not at all aggressive and once I know you, I will melt in your arms when you pick me up.  I know I will be a loving and sweet boy in the right home.  My purrfect home would be one with another outgoing cat or kitten and a Mom or Dad who will give me plenty of time to adjust to my new digs.

I love to draw. Most of us do when we’re children, but somewhere along the line we worry that if we’re not good enough we shouldn’t even try. I find that when I haven’t drawn in a while, I get rusty and am unhappy with the results. The quote by Walt Stanchfield gave me permission to be bad and freed me from my own ego. This site is a way to encourage everyone to draw. Put aside the fear of being good enough; embrace being bad. Just keep drawing.
