Something to treasure from Bobs

I wanted to show you this little gift that my 8 year old niece in Ireland,  hand made for me and sent to me for Christmas.

In the accompanying letter, she tells me that she had hardly any help making it.  I will treasure it always as this little girl (nicknamed Bobs) has had such a hard year, losing her dad (my brother) back in April 2012.

When I last visited her and her dad, I fell in love with the cat they had adopted and sat with it curled up in my lap the whole time so she knows that I like cats.  Infact something that she and I have in common, is that we both have a love for animals.

This is the cat, Lucy, asleep next to me. Can I just say the cat was called Lucy and then it was discovered that she was actually a he but by that time "Lucy" stuck.
