Nike the tomcat

Nike looks to me to be the epitomy of a tom cat. When I was growing up we had an orange cat name Hercules that looked very much like Mr Nike here. My husband asked me if all toms were orange. I guess because Herc was, I always thought they all were, but by definition it's just a male domestic cat (that apparently is popular with the lady cats!). Nike has distinguished black marks on his pink nose that I think are so handsome.

Aw this is just wonderful! I am not a cat person, but I like this character and I know it is because of the way you painted him. Thank you today!
