Noah (9) and Leo (7) are brothers and both really talented artists.
They had two cats, Maggie and Daisy who sadly passed away and the boys thought a great way to remember them would be to have their drawings printed on some cushions. I thought they were so wonderful I wanted to interview the boys and they said yes…. thank you Noah and Leo! xx
I love the drawings of both cats so much, can you tell me some things you remember about them? I know Daisy liked to sleep under the trees.
Noah- Daisy thought she was a dog. She followed us everywhere. To the shops, to nursery and school. She would stick her claws out when she was happy.
Leo- Maggie was actually quite sensible. She was very cute.
Noah- She was a clever cat, fast and good at running.
Leo- She had to be good at dodging Montag's wagging tail! (Montag is our Cocker Spaniel).
Does having the cushions help you remember them and make you happy?
Noah- It makes me feel happy and pleased.
What is so special about having a cat as a pet?
Noah- You can stroke them and play with them.
Do you think they are smarter than dogs?
Leo- Hmmmmmm (Dad asks, "do you think Maggie was cleverer than Montag?")
Can you think of anything else you would like to have your drawings on?
Leo- Ummm, maybe a plate or a calendar.
Noah- I would like to see one of my drawings on a lamp or shade and when you switch it on at night the picture would glow on the wall.
What would you like to be when you grow up?
Noah- A scientist, because I want to make chemicals.
Leo- A diver and see all the fish.
Noah- Do you want to take pictures and see if you can find a new species of fish?
Can you tell me a joke?
Leo- How do you make a witch Itch? Take away the W.
Noah- Knock knock. Who's there? Arthur. Arthur who? Arthur any more biscuits in the tin?
Here are the cats, I think the boys have captured them brilliantly..
