Here’s the Moustachio painting, finished! I was going to call it Welcome, but since Moustachio is an italian cat, changed it to Benvenuto.

Here he is, hanging out with his buddies while ensconced behind an old window frame we have sitting on top of a little table and leaning against the wall on the front porch. He loves his friends. They listen attentively to all his stories, they pretty much let him have his way in everything, and they always let him eat their dessert whenever they go out to lunch. What’s not to love?
