Rescued Cat + Artist = Help And Hope


We're so pleased to share this wonderful story with you-a tale of a rescued cat who inspired one of our favorite artists to use her talents for a cause that involves both animals and humans. Vicki Boatright (aka BZTAT), a talented painter with a propensity to paint animals and paint them beautifully-see some of her fabulous work here: www.bztatstudios.com- has taken on a cause inspired by her rescued kitty, Okey, who was very obviously abused before finding his forever home with Vicki.


As Vicki says, "Okey's Promise: Art for a Cause  is not one single artwork. It is not one single project. Okey's Promise is a movement. It is a movement to open eyes and hearts to the links between animal abuse, domestic violence and violence towards children...When there is violence to animals, there is likely violence to children and others who may be defenseless."


Enjoy watching this uplifting video that explains BZAT's art project to help spread awareness of the interconnectedness of animal abuse, child abuse and domestic violence.

Then check out this project's, "Kickstarter Page" to learn more. As always, we appreciate your interest and support.

Great post, the video was moving...we have a cat that we adopted and she has been in our family for about 6 years. She originally came from a home wherein she was neglected and abused. The home also had a lot of children in it. Our Princess is afraid of children and has some trust issues but she has come a long way and we all love her...this video made me think of her.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your thoughts...I'm following your blog :)
