I decided to make my cousin Terri a scratchboard drawing of her cat Miikka and surprise her with the drawing during her visit to NY earlier this week.  I downloaded a photo of her cat from her Facebook page to use as a reference for the drawing.  I worked many hours to get it done in time for her visit.  Done. Then I went back to her Facebook page and happen to read her comment about the photo I had used. I realized that I had drawn her friend’s cat, not my cousin’s cat.  Oh my.  I then worked faster than usual to try and get the real Terry’s cat finished before her arrival.  Somehow I was able to do it.  Here are the two cats.

Will the real Terri’s cat please stand up.

    With another cat (and maybe a dog or a ferret) this little story could become a novel!
