Comment: Beautifully-decorated envelope and loved SS’s journal and your super-fun illustrations, I do love cartoons! SS definitely sounds like a character of a kitty and you are quite a kitty Katt lover for sure! (I looked and looked for a quilt, I did find a pic of one hahaha) Thank you for thinking of me with the kitty stickers too, very thoughtful of you — know you have great memories of SS =^••^= when they’re done breaking our hearts from leaving us, the memories of them help heal us I guess
Response: I wish the pics would have printed out better! I’m glad you enjoyed it...he was a super cool cat and very savvy. He made friends with my dog and never hissed at him. He was really special! Thank you for the rating/heart!
