With all the snow days we have been experiencing this week, I decided to make the best of them. My 8 year old granddaughter Caelin who lives on the Mainland absolutely adores cats, so I thought I would attempt at making a “Snow Cat” for her. It took me approximately two hours to finish, and the attached photo is what I ended up with. She thought it was pretty cool!
