Reasons to Celebrate

My heart is happy with the sunny weather we're experiencing, Spring is right around the corner, and Rosie and Angus are celebrating their first birthday!! A year ago these little guys were born in an empty garage and abandoned (they are not siblings and Angus is a couple of weeks older) but our local PAWS organization rescued them  and they went to a wonderful foster home until they were old enough for adoption. PAWS had an adoption event at our veterinarians office and there we fell in love with little Rosie. Angus had already been put in a foster home, where we saw him shyly hanging back while other  kitties chased a toy. They were both so cute back then, and it has been a rewarding adventure bringing them up to this point.

Now they are a year old and into everything -
I caught Angus hanging over the stair railing the other day,

while Rosie looked startled as I caught her scurrying up from downstairs!

Outside, the snow is about 99.9% gone, a random patch of white still hanging on in shady places,
but Spring is definitely in the air! And everyone is more than ready for it after a long winter!

When I next post here, it will be the first day of a new season!
Have a lovely weekend!!

Judy, I am so happy that you are seeing signs of spring. It is raining here and is supposed to all week. My daffodils are blooming and I will take a photo of my garden today and post it sometime in the future. Rosie and Angus are the same ages as my daughters two kittens, Sookie and Sebastian. They are my grandcats, because Lisa has no children, they mean the world to all of us too. I love to see yours growing and playing. They give so much joy.

They are so sweet! It is fun watching them grow into teenagers:)

Glad that the weather will be getting better soon. I have my fingers crossed for you!

Your kitties are so lovely and angelic looking! Gizmo is a rescue cat too and born outdoors in a small space between a garden and a garage. He can act quite feral sometimes! Here's to Springtime! x

They are such a joy! I loved seeing their baby pictures and then to see how they have grown during their first year!
