Steamer was the second kitty we adopted. She was one of the offspring of a pregnant stray taken in by a friend. We originally selected a different kitten from the litter, but when we went back for a second visit, Steamer chose me. Her nickname was “Little Bit.” Steamer passed in 2006 at the age of 17. She came to me one morning after her breakfast and looked at me in a way that said, “good-bye.” She passed quietly shortly after.

That was a lovely tribute and a sweet memory!

Tell your mommy that photoshop elements should have a trial period for using the program before having to pay anything. She should check it out. I am sure she could learn how to do layers and stuff! I must admit that The Staff is particularly dim and she has learnt quite a bit, but as you saw, it was not without some hair pulling (mine) and muttered oaths!! Oh, and she did have a lot of help from Glogirly to get going 🙂 xxx

It was nice to hear about Steamer. Kitties are so much more aware of what is happening than humans are.
