I opened the cabinet, and lo and behold, five Cheshire kittens, and a proud mama. 

The Doctor has taken a particular shining to this one, who is in a constant state of licking himself.

Making them was just like making the rats; making all the little shapes (legs, body, tail, head) out of foil, covering them with paper napkins and glue, and sticking them together.  Painting was more challenging.  I must have done five coats with all the correcting I had to do.  I painted a lot with a safety pin.

They'll grow into their smiles yet, I'm sure.
