Sympathy Card – Cat

Hi There!

Sharing a sympathy card that I made for a dear cousin that had to say goodbye to her little son around Christmas time. I say son, because to us, our cats are like children. We love them and cherish them in our lives everyday and it is heartbreaking when we have to let them go and say our final good-byes. We also lost our little girl last year and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her or the others that we’ve had to say good-bye to. So we know first hand how it feels when someone else we know loses their pet.

For the card front, I chose the little girl holding onto her cat because I thought it represented how we still hold onto our loved ones in our hearts long after they are gone. I left the cat white as “Spot” was a white cat.
