Painting "Angel and Cat"

Today is Catholic Easter; as an Orthodox person, it doesn't interest me much, but... One and a half years ago, my Siberian Cat Murchellino passed away. For 17 years, he lay on the windowsill of my studio, listening to classical music and talking to me about art. Until the last moment, I was with him. He is buried under a linden tree in front of my terrace, and for a year and a half, every day, I go out and talk to him. For a year and a half, I cannot come to terms with this loss. Yesterday, I took out a work that I couldn't touch for two years. After finishing work, I fell asleep, and Murchellino came to me for the whole night. And in the morning, swallowing valerian and shedding tears, I wrote this...

An angel descended from the sky and, introducing himself,
Cat Murchellino asked:
"How is it up there? Is it eternal summer?
And in Semekhovo, is it cold? Haven't you caught a cold?
Won't you freeze barefoot and dressed in a simple shirt?
Sit here with me; I'll warm you up,
I'm in fur. I'm warm. You're not superfluous to me.
And then, when the wings warm up, embracing me,
You will merge with me and fly to the sky with me..."
And under the canopy of the sky sat two creations,
Bright Angel and Cat - two creatures of God,
Two souls whose warmth flowed into words,
To a person who is also cold.
