May your day be as Sweet as Cupcake Frosting

I've had this image colored for quite some time, but I just haven't put it together until tonight.  This is the image for the Sasayaki Glitter Progressive Challenge #7 - Cupcake Kitty, and the sentiment is from TLC.
I have three Siamese cats and I would usually like to color the cat that color, but it has been depressing that my male cat has been loosing weight lately.  I took him to the vet this fall and his labs were normal and she couldn't find anything wrong with him.  I took him back and to my shock he has lost 3 pounds and was down to 6.3 pounds!  She believes that he has an abdominal lymphoma and I didn't want to do a scan since it would take a week or two to have it performed so instead I wanted to start him on Prednisolone which is a steroid to try to help him feel better and buy us some time.  My son is in South Carolina until June which she didn't think it would buy him that much time.  She said it was not steroids for humans that would stimulate his appetite, but that doesn't seem to be the case he is now wanting snacks, treats and to eat.  I weighed him today one week later and he is 7 pounds.  So now I hope she is wrong and it is a gastritis and my denial will change if he begins to loose weight again.

Oh no, Lisa Lynn, this makes me so sad. He lost a lot of weight but it sounds like the steroids might be working so let's hope they are. I know how much you love your kitties. You did a beautiful job with this cute cupcake kitty! Such an adorable card and fun sentiment! Sending hugs for your furbaby!

This card is so sweet with all the color and the cupcake paper is just the perfect touch with your image. The sentiment is one I've not seen before and I'm sure the recipient is just as sweet as this card.
