Thankful Thursday

A few weeks ago, we got a wonderful email from our friends Tristan and Crikey:

"We had the highest bid for the print over at Fiona's auction! The print was donated by The Creek Cats, in honor of their sweet Cal (he's at The Bridge now). Well... we would like to have this print sent to you in honor of your sweet girl, Callie. We thought of her when we saw the print:) "

Isn't that so very sweet? We accepted their lovely offer, and a week or so later, this beautiful print arrived at our house:


It took another couple of weeks for The Mommy to get it framed and hung, but here it is (yeah, the photos aren't all that great...trust us, it looks great on the wall!):




Thank you so much to Tristan and Crikey and their mom, and also to The Creek Cats for the donation of the print to the auction and for sending it to us. It's so great to have such wonderful friends in the Cat Blogosphere, and we very much appreciate it. The print of Miss Maggie May the Tootlebug will remain in a place of honor in our home, in memory of both Cal and Callie, as well as a great reminder of our friends Tristan and Crikey and The Creek Cats. We love you guys!
