    Your plate turned out great, Julia! Thank you for the tutorial! I hope you’ll get some ideas for the plates you’ll have custom made for Maya and Willy.
    It’s wonderful that you and your neighbor take care about the strays in your area and have them neutered! Good luck with catching some more! My husband found a dog puppy in a garbage bin on Friday and brought her home. It’s so awful how many unwanted animals get just thrown away. The kitties are not really happy about the puppy but they will come around.

    1. Oh Julia, that is just so sad about the puppy but I’m so glad he is with you. I’m sure the cats will get used to him.
      I can’t comprehend how people can be so heartless and treat them like trash.
      I was thinking of you and your kitties the other day because one of the kittens I raised also passed away. She accidentally got out of the house where she was living and got hit by a car. It breaks my heart.

    1. 🙂 thanks Cassie. They are a fun project to make even for kiddos.

  2. So good of you to spay/neuter those neighborhood kitties. You are a kind soul!

    1. Thanks Ann. I hope I’m able to catch more.

  3. I love this idea! Your tutorial is great and very easy to follow. Thank you for sharing! You are a wonderful person to catch the feral cats and have them neutered. What you are doing is awesome!

    1. Thanks Susan. I’m glad it’s easy to follow. I will keep trying to catch more every time they have a clinic. Unfortunately my trap was empty last night again

    I love this project and that Willy – he’s so adorable!!!

    1. He is such a character, you have no idea but I think it comes across really well in this photo.

  5. Such a fun project–love them! And great work with neutering the kitties!

    1. Thanks Gretchen. I tried again last night but the trap was empty this morning. I’ll keep trying every time they have a clinic because kitten season is around the corner 🙁

  6. I have a collection of those animal plate so fromWest Elm and I never thought of making one of my own own pet to add to the collection. What a fabulous idea!

    1. Thanks Claire,
      I love having so many custom ones now. Of course Rachels plates are so much better than anything I can make 😉

  7. They are absolutely fantastic! Due to my apartment rent policy, I have to leave them at the care of my parents and I miss them so bad. Now I can do something on those photos I have of my cats and decorate my wall with them.

    1. Oh thanks so much and I would miss them too. Good luck making your own.
