White.....with 1 - chocolate February Challange

 Welcome  to my blog.

 I have been scrapping again and enjoyed playing along with the challenge over at 
The colour for February is ...chocolate




Here is what I made.

{special memories}

His name was Smudge but we called him "Smudgee" or "Big Fella"
He was a part of our family for 16 years, sadly he is no longer with us.
 He was such an affectionate cat and had so many special ways. He never got tired of being patted and when we thought we had finished he would always reach out with his feet and try to hold us there for just a bit longer. When we walked from a to b he would always weave across our feet  almost tripping us over. He loved fish and was always there to eat the bit left over after the fish were cleaned. He was an outside  cat and  no matter how many times I shifted him or told him,  he would always lay in the sun. He had most of his ears removed 2 years ago because of skin cancers and more recently it  spread to his eyelids. After one lot of treatment which only lasted for 2 months it became too much for him. Still feel sad when I look at this photo.

Yes, our pets leave such a big hole in our lives when they leave. This challenge was perfect to record your memories about his personality. Love the circle framing the photo and the flourish too. TFS
