Spring has Sprung with a New Family Member named Lily!

April 2016! It has been a long winter but spring is here and Sheri's healing flower garden is greening up with perennials already up a foot out of the ground, butterflys bushes, clematis, salvias, daylilys, iris and coneflowers which will bloom in mid to late May! I have a new child, an addition to the house and her name is Lily! I went to a shelter looking for a kitten white with black markings and had prayed to find this particular kitten as I never had a choice in choosing a kitten, I always took in strays in the yard or out of the woods and spayed or neutered each one and gave them their shots each year and they had a great loving life with us. This little Lily was pulled out of the cage and those shelters make one cringe to go in them. I put her in my arms and she was so shy and light as a feather and 5 months old. I took her home and within 3 days she had come out of her shell and she was climbing my new curtains and all over the new couch and chair and up and down the halls and just totally unmanageable! I wanted a kitten to bond with but my nerves have been shot for the last 5 months! I have put aluminum foil on the couch and that has slowed her down does work but I do not like to have furniture covered with sheets and alum foil to FOIL the cat off them! She has adapted to being walked outside in the yard with a harness...and due to dogs, snakes and more she will have to live this way for her life.. Bro is now inside also since the dog attack last october when I had to euthanize Peebo, the oldest cat. So here are some photos of the 2 cats I have now and some flowers ...blooming on April 2, 2016
