This story really touched me. For one thing, it is a great story. I encourage you to click on the link and read about Winifred. You might notice something while you’re reading. Winifred is often called “Winnie”. Of course, our own Wintergreen became “Winnie” and it is her name on the very Walkway that now holds Winifred’s brick.
There is one other little something I want to mention before I send you to Winifred’s link. When I was taking the pictures of the bricks, I had them all out of the boxes and spread out here and there. All of the recent kitten additions (Mickey, Maverick, Sunshine, Juice, and Hershey) had been romping around all over the place the whole time I was busy with bricks and camera. I was a little surprised that the kittens weren’t the least bit interested in what I was doing. When all of the pictures were taken, and most of the bricks were packed back into their places (to await a cooler day for actual placement in the Walkway), I was called away briefly with only a handful of bricks still out. When I returned, this is what I found.
Yep. Little Mickey Mouse had curled up next to Winifred’s brick. Did you happen to notice what Winifred’s brick says? “Mama Cat to All” I guess little Mickey instinctively knew. And here was Winifred reaching back into Life to “mother” one last time.
I hope you will take a moment to read about Winifred (“Winnie”) over at the blog Hubble Space Paws. Click here - Winifred
