Custom paw print stamp for Ringo

First, I want to thank all of you for your kind comments about Benny. I feel much better about the situation. I'll give him the milk thistle supplement and re-check his blood work in January. That is all we can do right now. He is acting normally in every way.

A number of years ago, I started making custom paw-print stamps of the cats. I have one that's a Tucker/Benny combo (because neither wanted to give me a good print), a Sadie, and now, a new Ringo one.

I took impressions using water-based ink, which I immediately wiped off. I scanned in the prints (I made several) and combined them into one image:
I emailed the file to a great company called Village Impressions, and within a few days, my new stamp arrived!


I love that each stamp is unique, like a fingerprint. I use these stamps to "sign" cards.

My human had one of Sparkle for pawtographs. Actually she still has it, but it has been retired.

Very neat idea - I've never seen anything like the stamp.

I'm sorry I'm behind in blog reading and hadn't read the post about Benny until now. I hope the vet finds that it is nothing serious and he lives a very long life. Poor boy, I'm pretty sure I would have been hissing too after all that prodding.

Love it and it's one of a kind.

The combo paw print is a WONDERFUL idea.

Glad Benny is acting normally - praying for ongoing improvement there.

I wish I had more time to blog and comment. I will be trying to carve out more time for this in my schedule coming up. I so love my connections with you and others here!

What a cool idea! I would love to do that with my cats...especially Ernie because he has the extra toes. :)

That is so sweet, and unique!

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
