When the body of the large cat was sewn together and set upon the feet, Lady Doll was in awe at his size. "This is the fattest cat I have ever seen!" said Little Doll. "He IS very round!" said Lady G as she looked back and forth between Little Doll and the cat body. "And you look very small next to him." "Well, I AM very small" said Little Doll, "but next to him I look even smaller!" "If you would help me to sit on top of this fat cat" she said to me, "then you can see how small I look!" So I set her on top of the cat body and she did in fact look so very small! "I love this cat!" said Little Doll, "His size makes me feel so safe somehow. He is a lovely fat cat."
"But now it is time for you to help me!" I said to Little Doll. "Do you see this piece by the head? The one that looks like two circles next to each other with a bump on top?" "Yes! I see it!" said Little Doll! "Well, the two circles are the cheeks of the face and the small bump on top is the nose" I told her. "You can paint the nose. How does that sound?" "Oh that would be such fun!" said Little Doll. "And you know from when I painted the base of my garden that lovely green color that I am a very neat worker!" Lady G and I shared a glance and a smile. "Yes you are" I said, "and I know that you will paint this little nose very neatly! I have put a bit of stuffing in this piece to make it easier to paint on as it is now solid and flat. You will have to paint very carefully and take your time as the lines have to be very straight where the nose meets the cheeks." "I will be very careful!" said Little Doll. "What color will we use?" she asked me.
"What color do you think, Lady G? Should his nose be red or pink or orange - or perhaps a black nose would look right on Fat Cat?" "No, not black" said Lady G, "nor red, nor orange. I think that pink would be perfect with his coloring, don't you?" "I love it!" said Little Doll. "For such a large Fat Cat, a small pink nose would indeed be perfect!" "I have a lovely pink color of paint in my supplies" I said, "and I also have a small paint brush that would be just the right size for you to use to paint with Little Doll. I will get them for you and then I will help you get started!"
So I took the paint and the paint brush from my supplies and brought them to Little Doll. I lay the cheek and nose piece on her lap and put the brush in her hand. "How does that feel?" I asked her, "Is the brush too large for you to handle?" "It is just the right size to paint the small nose." said Little Doll "It is even smaller than the brush I used for the garden base so I will be able to draw very neat lines with it!" "That's what we want." I said, "So take you time and paint this area at the top of the cheeks and Fat Cat will have a pink nose!" "Do be careful Little Doll!" said Lady G. "I will!" said Little Doll. And she started to paint. "How does it look?" she asked when she was finished. Red bird came to sit on her shoulder and Lady G and I came closer to look.
"It looks wonderful!" said Lady G. "Perfect!" I said. "Thank you" said Little Doll, "I tried to be very careful and well, you know that I am a very neat worker." At that, we all laughed and red bird did his twitter and hop! Fat Cat now had his nose!
