just a few days ago by one of our neighbors.
She immediately made herself at home by

Perhaps you all remember my post from
a few weeks ago? It was all about the
rescued mother cat and her 5 kittens.
You can see it here...
Well! All the kittens have been adopted and
one of our wonderful neighbors adopted
the mother cat Rowena! Yippee!
I will get to see her all the time in her new home!
I will post on next Monday photos of
Rowena who now has the name of Zooey Rowena!!
She has blossomed into an amazing cat-
greeting everyone with purrs and cat kisses
plus head bumps! So very friendly!
Many thanks to the family who took her in
with all those baby kittens! Without them Rowena
and her kittens would not have their happy ending!
Have a lovely day- everyday!

What a surprise! Instead of Snow Drop flowers...
we have heavy soggy snow! In our neighborhood
a lot of our street trees lost some branches due
to the heavy soggy snow! Yow!
Snow Drop's Information.
Galanthus, or snowdrop, is a small genus of approximately 20 species of bulbous perennial herbaceous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae. The plants have two linear leaves and a single small white drooping bell-shaped flower with six petal-like tepals in two circles.
The smaller inner petals have green markings.
Have a very Happy Tuesday!

Our wonderful nearby friends took in these
5 kittens and their Mother ( only 1 year old ) .
The Vancouver Humane Society had brought
them up from California when no one could help
them there as the Humane Societies there had no room.
Our friends volunteered to take care of the family
until the kittens were old enough to be adopted.
They have been caring for them for about 6 or more weeks now.
Three of the five rescued kittens.
Here's their mother Rowena who is the sweetest
ever mother cat. She and the kittens have been
spayed/neutered and have gotten all their
vaccines etc and are ready to be adopted.
Here are the other two of five kittens.
They are all adorable and fun to watch and play with!
These five darling kittens and their mom will be
going to the Southwest Vancouver WA Humane Society
and will be available for adoption probably
this coming weekend. I am so thankful that our
friends have been taking care of these sweet cats !
And many thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday!
Have a lovely day everyone!

I am so thankful that we live in a part of the world
that gets a lot of rain! It stays green and lush
and it's relaxing to hear the rain pitter pattering
at night while we fall asleep!
