You make me smile

I have another card for the Cat Lovers Hop.  My Dad and Uncle came today for the day to do a few things around my house and they haven't been at my house since April.  They used to come every couple of weeks so this is unusual this year.  One of the first things that my Uncle asked is where my male Siamese cat was since he always would have to check out what was happening in "HIS" house.  So I told him that he was no longer with us, and even though he acts like a tough guy, he was sad.  He said to me, "He was a good looking cat and was friendly."  I about fell over.  Then my Dad said, she still has two too many.  My Dad doesn't believe in having indoor pets.  I just said, "Dad, you know better than to start this discussion...again."  So for my card today, I used a digital image from Lili of the Valley.
