Insomnia - Cat Art by Dora Hathazi Mendes, from the .
Rebeka, my late black cat was the model for this cat painting, which is about a cat staring out of the window to the silent night, and looking to a owl sitting on a branch of a tree.
These two creatures are both motionless, waiting for something to move, something little noise to listen, or a slight movement to react to in a split of a second. The owl is free, the black cat is inside the home looking out from behind a window, but her instincts do not make her behave differently. After the seemingly silent night, the dawn finally arrived, the first rays of the sun paint the air with warm tones, but they still not give it up. They are both excellent hunters, predators with highly developed senses of hearing and smell, and excellent eyesight adopted to night low light conditions.
