Hi! I've looked through the list of print sizes I can offer here on Deviant Art, and can't find one for an artcard size. Sorry! :(

Over the decades I have known a few who now abide on the other end of the rainbow bridge and it seems like so many are having to go through this these last few weeks.

This is so beautiful and sad. It reminds me of the first time I lost a pet, a beautiful calico named "Patches".

That it is, FB is where I saw it. Used Google reverse image search to locate source.
Would be nice if people would credit the person who did the work, ya know.

Certainly, but it makes me feel cool when someone posts it and I can show them the real artist that I've been following for months prior.

Your art makes me cry - because I have been so fortunate as to have had the love of dogs and cats over many years.  My three dogs and I are all seniors now.  Your art is magnificent.  Thank you.

I thought I'd made a 5x7 available for purchase on this page but something must've gone haywire as it wasn't showing up as being available at all! Trying again and it's showing it can be purchased but only as a 9x12...sigh. Sorry for any confusion!

Yes, there's a 5 x 7 print available that can be purchased here. So happy it struck a chord with you!

Can you post a link for me to buy the 5x7? Not new to deviant art but this would be my first purchase. I just lost my Dusty to cancer on May 7th,2014. Sudden and shocking, she had no symptoms just all the sudden had a lot of trouble breathing. Shocking because she was only 10. A beautiful soul, taken way too soon.                

PS- Dusty is my current avatar pic next to my name glitrgrv1973
(it was suppose to be glitrgrl1973 but I misspelled with a v instead, lol)

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful girl! While it's never easy under any circumstances, losing a furbaby suddenly is a direct kick to the heart. My cat, Kootie, had urinary blockages that came upon him quickly (the vets tried but couldn't help to stop them) and within a few weeks I had to make the decision that was right for him and help him to cross over rather than going through any more painful episodes. I wouldn't have traded my time with him for anything in the world! Dusty was a lucky cat to have you as her 'parent'!

I thought I'd had this particular print (along with one other piece) made available for purchase on this page and it had shown up as being available as a 5x7. When I looked in here today it said "print not enabled" (?). Don't know what happened, but I've once more enabled it for purchase, but now the only size it's allowing for is a 9x12. Hope that helps as I still don't know what happened to the 5x7 availability! Don't get the chance to get here as often as I'd like, but I'll try to check in again soon to make sure it's still showing up for purchase! Many thanks and all the best!

This is very touching. It brings back how I felt the first few days after having my cat pass on (her kidneys weren't doing so well) earlier in the month of march just last year. Soon after she passed my grandmother passed on as well. They were buds to the end. <3

I always adore your storybook style... Do you have an artbook, by chance?

Man, this is such a familiar feeling... Nights really ARE long when you're missing your special pet(s).
