I had meant to talk about Ella Bella last week --that's her in the photo, but there have been too many things happening all at once, and life's been a bit too chaotic. My husband and I rescued her from the apartment building next to our dwelling. She and her roommate, sister or brother were left behind by their owner. The word was that they had been seen around the building for weeks, often trying to get back into their old apartment. This made me so sad-- and angry. Ella stayed with us for several weeks and I fell head over heels in love with her--and then we found a sweet family who fell in love with her too ( my son's friend's family ) She's in good hands but I will miss her so!
