Meow, Purr

Sunday sketch it out is up at chic tags and there is a new palette at CSI that I have decided to combine
The new sketch has some trriangles on it and since it is one of the evidence articles over at CSI  I think the 2 go together beautifully.
My page is about  an important companion who is very much missed at our home.
Many of you don't know my DH is a vet, well this little beauty was brought to the Clinic the first week we opened.  We were newly married and I was his left and right hand at the Clinic when this lady comes in to put down this tiny kitten she had found at her doorstep.  Her husband, an aging fellow had asthma and she didn't know what else to do. 
This kitten was barely a week old, eyes shut close, almost hairless and we didn't have the heart to do what she wanted.  We instead asked her if we could keep her.
I remeber putting her inside my scrubs shirt pocket and feeding her milk with a syringe every few hours.  She took car rides with us for hours to go visit her "grandparents" and I remeber the first time she felt grass on her paws as she was a city girl, always inside our apartment.
She grew to love the outdoors and the trees as soon as we moved.  Then after we had our son, many years after our daughter.  She was the queen of the neighborhood and was respected by all the canines, she had her way into everyones heart.
16 years after being in our company cancer overtook her, she could no longer eat and sadly departed our lives.  But she will live in our hearts forever.

So sad to hear the story behind your photo, but you created such a beautiful page to remember her by. Really love the bold colors you used on the White background and how you combined the Sketch and the CSI case file! Thanks for playing along with us @ Chic Tags!

Oh, what a very sweet story! I so love that you rescued that sweet baby and I know you gave her the most amazing life. You saved her, and she is her turn, saved all of you, too. This is stunning! Really gorgeous take on that fun sketch with the triangles! How eye catching!
