Then we we have Rebecca's image of the "Tender"moment, as the purretty Platinum - haired catgirl is appurroached by the Blue Morpho butterfly, nya! Rebecca used the pencil, pens and Copic markers to illustrate this wonderfully beautiful encounter, with the Pink, Blue and Black dress to match the catgirl's eyes and the butterfly's wings, nya!

Tanya is wearing the strapless White halter top and the Black miniskirt, whilst Talia is wearing the cropped Red tee shirt and the Blue shorts, and Tanya's dog Marco is just wearing his collar and tag, nya.

After that is Mike's latest illustration of our Mer Orca friend Formality, who says “I Heart My Black Purrl”, nya! She looks so dappurr with her natural tuxedo-like markings accessorized by the top hat, bow tie, and the large, purrecious Black purrl in her navel, nya! Since Formality is appurroximately 11 ft long, that purrl is purretty big, nya!
It is quite valuable, but she would not sell it for any purrice, because it was a birthday purrsent from her purrents, who live in the Gulf near Purrince Edward island in Canada, nya!
