Ottawa, ON, May 29, 2013 — An Ottawa artist has painted a series of works celebrating the Cats of Parliament Hill. Gwendolyn Best's cats are on display through June 9th at the Orange Gallery, in the Hintonburg neighborhood. The paintings were created to honor the many felines who made Parliament Hill their home. The sanctuary closed in early January when there were only four cats remaining in the colony. Those four joined the other dozen or so cats who over the years were adopted by volunteers.
The cats' ancestors arrived in the early 1900's to help control pests in nearby government buildings. The Canadian government and local volunteers had provided a place for them to take shelter and receive food and water since the 1970s. The cat sanctuary even had the Queen's blessing.
A couple of years ago, Todd Moe played tourist on Parliament Hill and met some of the cats and their caregivers. Brian Caines was one of the many volunteers who had visited the cats daily. Go to full article
