Here it is Friday and I just found out it is National Afternoon Tea Week. I seem to always be a week behind on things.
No problem, I drink tea every afternoon and that's how I would have celebrated it anyway.
My choice of tea in Newfoundland restaurants was Red Rose. Can't beat it for taste and satisfaction. My opinion, of course. I brought home this little tea-cup and saucer from St. John's, Nfld.
She's cute, eh! It is all up-hill in Newfoundland. The saucer holds a cookie....fabulous!
I have a nice story for you that happened at our local animal shelter last week.
There is a cat residing there that was picked up as a stray and pregnant. She was due last week to give birth. In the meantime, someone brought in 2 one-week old kittens that were found outside. Eyes were not open yet. The staff bottle fed them but it is difficult and time-consuming so they had a plan. The pregnant cat went into labour soon after these two orphans arrived. As soon as she gave birth to one, the staff slid these two kittens in with the new-born. They waited. The mom started to lick them along with her own baby. We figure she thought she had just delivered them. She went on to have 7 more kittens so now she has 9. That too many for any one cat so the staff is having to help them with feedings but at least these two little orphans will be raised along with the other 7 by a momma cat. I love happy endings. Now, if they can just find wonderful, loving homes for them all, then were talkin'. If you are in the Ottawa/Carleton Place/Almonte/Perth/Smiths Falls area, please drop in to the Lanark Animal Shelter in Smiths Falls, Ontario to view their beautiful dogs and cats that so desperately need loving homes.http://www.lanarkanimals.ca/
Look what my daughter sent me from St. Johns, Nfld.
A Newfoundland cat in a window. A rare sight for sure.
Thanks Jess, love ya.
