I had to fix the journaling (I forgot a word) so I decided to go with a paper version instead of vellum, and a decorative edge to match the other pages. It ended up smaller so I added the only photo I had of the 3 kittens. I didn't use it first time because it was such a bad exposure (indoor, no flash) BUT because I ended up using so much orange on the page, now the photo fits perfectly. :)
The journaling reads...As a poor couple, just starting out, we were always looking out for discarded items like used furniture. Cruising one day we came across some curbside cats. On an old couch we discovered several kittens from at least three litters. My boyfriend (at the time) knocked on the front door and asked what's up with all of these cats? The lady of the house replied, help yourself. They are there for the pickin'. Take a few home and try them out. So we picked out three kittens. He picked a gray cat and named him Fred. I picked out Tiger Cat and we added one more but I don't remember his name. Well…Fred proved to be the most boisterous of the bunch and got to stay. Tiger Cat and the unnamed third kitten were returned to the now infamous kitten couch which by then had several dozen residents. But life was not good to Fred and he met his fate with a car a few months later. Naturally we were upset but eventually we paid the kitten couch another visit. Low & behold Tiger Cat was still there! But by now Tiger Cat was a teen-age stud cat in his prime. MEOW! I scooped him up and he became MY cat. So this is why I have only one baby picture of Tiger Cat.
