Child’s drawing of a brown tabby cat wearing a bowtie and standing happily in the grass, surrounded by blue skies, hearts, and sparkles.

Unfortunately we had to put down one of our cats this weekend, Mr. Poppy. When we got him as a kitten, my daughter was really into Trolls and wanted to name a kitten Poppy. Even though we told her that Poppy could be a boy’s name, she gave him the honorific Mister to make sure there was no confusion. Seven years later, she made this beautiful drawing as tribute.
