A Kitty Bouquet of Thanks







We came home from vacation to find four new kittens on our porch, two white and two gray. Living on a farm, we've been overrun with feral cats who won't even let us get near them. I didn't even realize that one of them was expecting. We've neutered the ones we could catch. We're determined to give the new kittens a lot of holding and petting so they won't be so wild and afraid of us.


Yesterday I had another surprise. There was a third white one we hadn't seen all week.


While we were gone, our neighbor down the road came up to feed and water them each day. Here's the card I made this week to thank them for their kindness.  I used Doodle Pantry's Kitty Bouquet Color from October 2013.The sentiment came from Doodle Pantry's Carousel Cheetah.


I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Such a great heart you have. I have rescued so many kittens that were thrown away and it makes me smile that you take such great care of them. The card is lovely and I am sure your neighbors will treasure it. Thank you for posting this wonderful art with us at Word Art Wednesday. Hoping to see you again really soon.
Blessings, Carole

Wow. What a fantastic story. I really love it when a project has a story behind it. Makes the project more "real" if that is the right word. Good luck with the cats and kittens. Thanks for joining ScrapbookerPhD.
