Last year we eventually felt settled enough to get a cat from the RSPCA.
The girls couldn't believe it was really happening at last.
We rescued a medium hair black kitten called Angus.
(he's really a Russian spy though, has a great accent!)
So for the latest birthday here, I made the youngest a fluffy black cat!
(face free motion sewn onto merino wool felt onto faux fur)
And she also got a cat birthday cake too, in the end! :-)
