Happy, happy cat!

I've made this card as a thank you for my bestest and loveliest friend Jean and her OH.


I've known Jean for almost 50 years and she's so kind and caring. She's kept in constant touch while OH has been ill, through his chemo and his stem cell transplant. They've had their own problems with her OH's elderly father who passed away aged 101 earlier this year but she's still found time for us.

They came to visit on Bank Holiday Sunday and stayed for most of the day. They live about 100 miles away so quite a jaunt. We had the loveliest day, we never stopped talking and by the time she went home I was hoarse! They put our families to shame, not one visit from either side yet they live roughly in the same area as my dear friend.

It's not my normal type of card but I know they will love the image as they are both cat lovers.
