I love cats which is so surprising because years ago I really didn’t like them. I grew up in a house full of dogs and whenever I went to a house where they had cats, it was immediately obvious that I was allergic to them. Years later my parents had two cats and I was shocked to realize that my eyes weren’t itching and closed shut.
When my daughters were younger they wanted a pet (what kid doesn’t). We decided that having a dog wouldn’t work because we were gone most of the day so we went to the pound and got two adorable (a brother and sister) kitties to bring home. They instantly stole our hearts, even my husbands, who definitely was NOT a cat person. We lost Misty when she was 14 and Joey lived to be 19. I still miss them.
Twenty years ago my parents started feeding feral cats on their property. My mom caught many of the girls and took them to the vet to be spayed. We are still feeding three of them and all of their friends in the neighborhood. The word got out that there’s free food. The three regulars are so cute and they keep their eyes on me from outside when I’m crafting at my mom’s.
Now you know why there’s no way I could pass up a kitty stamp set as cute as Pretty Kitty in the Occasions catalog.
I stamped the kitty on watercolor paper with Staz-On and used Watercolor pencils and an Aqua Painter to color her in. Here are two more cards that I made with the set!
