Alger is a winner.

"ALGER"
I entered this painting in a "White Cat Contest" on Fine Art America and he WON.  That is purrrrrfectly marvelous.  I sold this painting already, but if you want a high quality reproduction of it, or note cards, click here to go to Fine Art America.  I can vouch for the quality of the prints that FAA does - they are excellent - and they are available in several formats.

Thanks everyone. I guess Alger's portrait has struck a chord with all of you. Alger was a cat we had when I was a child.
I didn't have an actual photo of the real Alger, but this is what he looked like.
Alger would hiss at things he didn't like, so my Dad named him after Alger Hiss, an American accused of espionage after WWII.
