The background is my first portrait of him.
The DUDE (whose real name is Kid Jr.) is a middle aged black cat who has been my studio companion for the last 13 some years! What a great age for a black cat, eh?
Just under two years ago, he got a nasty diagnosis. He has a tumor on his thyroid. He makes too much of the stuff a thyroid makes so that is Hyperthyroidism. I am giving him a dose of his meds every morning and every night and he is a bit skinnier than he has been, but still his aloof yet demanding independent self. This will allow him to live with the thing in his neck, but it doesn't cure him.
The Dude abides.
