Happy Cats..

My little neighbour Saraya-Grace turned one this week.

All year six year old big sister Victoria-Sophia
has waited for little sister to turn one
so 'she won't be zero anymore!'

I got busy in my studio and made a softie cat.
Victoria-Sophia saw the pattern and thought she would really like one too.
One year olds are quite happy sharing birthdays with big sisters,
so two softie cats it was.

While the family was away at work and school
I went next door and the two cats were most happy
sitting in the bougainvillea waiting for the two sisters to come home.

Down came the to rain..
so back I went and this time hid the cats under the feijoa tree.
The man across the street waved at me.
I think he wondered what on earth I was up to.

I left a note in the mailbox..

I'm happy to say everyone was happy ..girls and cats,
but I tell you, I got such a lot of fun out of the whole adventure!

How lucky am I to have lovely neighbours.
