Allegretto belongs to Fiona and Ian. Fiona commissioned me to paint her for her Husbands birthday. Fiona told me 'Allegretto is one of three special kittens we kept from a mating 7.5 years ago between our first Queen and a Danish bred stud who was only in this country for a short visit. Aisling is my favourite (a beautiful brown ticked tabby and white girl), Allegretto is Ian's favourite and Andante (their brother who was much loved by both of us, but unfortunately died last year from a heart attack, we miss him very much). I think what we like most about Allegretto is her wonderful temperament, she just loves being round you and other people, constantly purring and rubbing up against you. She is a really good example of a Norwegian Forest Cat and has the "wild but intelligent and gentle" expression which we want to capture in the breed. This expression is what you have caught so well in the picture you have done of her'. Thank you Fiona, she is stunning!
