The first picture on the right-hand side is a special feely picture which shows Tabby curled up on the top of her patchwork quilt. Move your fingers all around the edge of the feely picture. It feels like a bumpy Square, doesn't it?
Feel the smaller squares that make up the quilt. The three across the bottom of the easiest to feel. The patchwork pieces are not neat and tidy but are thick and soft and squishy and are all different bright colours.
Tabby is curled up in a ball in the centre of the quilt with her tail wrapped around her. She looks very comfortable and cosy on her soft warm quilt. In the middle of the picture feel for a wonderful round curve. This is Tabby's back.
