MIA Kitty

Here is a picture of Maggie, the cat that we discovered on our back porch this spring. She was hurt so my DH took her to the vet and after a few weeks of pampering and some good food she has become "our cat." She has the sweetist nature and is a good cat (usually). When she was hurt my DH would have to turn her on her back and pour peroxide on her wounds and she would just lay in his
arms and not fuss at all (even when she had to take her antibotics.)


Maggie loves to still go outside and play. She will sit in front of the
door and meow and meow until she gets to go out. So on Sunday morning she wanted out and that was the last we saw her until yesterday. My DH went up and down the subdivision looking for her. We called for her, left the front lights on at night and cracked our garage door because she likes to sneak in there sometimes. No Maggie, DH was really upset because Maggie has become his pal. Her bed, food and toys are in his office and she will sleep in there and keep him company all night. Then out of the blue a neighbor came up to our house (we are a new subdivision and don't really know any of our neighbors yet.) She had discovered Maggie on her roof when her dogs were barking. She went from house to house trying to find Maggie's owner (our phone# had smeared on her tag). So our dear beloved MIA kitty has been returned!!! So I made our neighbor a Thank You card and purchased
this fun Snow Man Boxes that are filled with cookies and candy at Wal-Mart. DH says I'm being "corny" but I really appreciate this lady's kindness. She didn't have to go from house to house to find the owner, she could have just set her down and let her find her own way home.
I used the SC201 sketch from SCS and tried to follow the color sketch CC101 but I didn't have the exact colors so tried to use colors in the same family.
Stamp: Magenta Butterflies and Artistic Stamp Exchange
Ink: Brillance Graphite Black
Paper: Papertray Ink, Hobby Lobby background paper
Accessories: Red ribbon from Hobby Lobby and XMas Red Stickles

Aww I'm glad you found your kitty. Ours went missing a while back and it was such a relief when he showed up. I don't think you're being corny at all btw. The card is very pretty.
