Coco Cuddles

We had to say goodbye to our cat of 8 years, Coco. It came as a quick shock and both of my young kids have struggled with losing their beloved friend as this is their first introduction to death and grief. So I found some sweet images and put together a couple of cards for them to help ease their pain. This one I coloured up to represent my young daughter and Coco using this image from The Paper Shelter Just Another Kitten.
