Oregon's Painted Hills are beautiful. Definitely worth a visit. If you have time, you should hike the Carroll Rim Trail, it is supposed to give you a fantastic overlook of all the hills.

Lucy has been watching this part of our
backyard for days and now we see why..... 

Oh my- Lucy's mouse adventure!

Lucy actually caught a mouse after
weeks of sitting and watching for one!
She wanted to bring it into the house-
but we said "No" and we got rid of the dead mouse
 and Lucy came back into the house. 
She was a bit grumpy.
Thanks Sandee for Feline Friday!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Here is sweet Annabelle- a rescued pregnant kitty
with her little babies. Our good friends hosted
Now the wee little kittens are growing and soon
will be available for adoption as will Annabelle! 
They will all have been spayed/neutered before adopted and 
micro-chipped plus all the necessary vaccines for good health. 
Here are the kittens photos:

These kittens and Annabelle are too precious for words!
I am so thankful for people who take the time
and effort to help these mother cats and babies.
Have a lovely day!

getting up on the bed and rolling around playing!

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!
