Bellatrix's Brood 

While we were closed in the spring and busy building cases we had a new Castaway Critter arrive.  Bellatrix, a young black cat, was found as a stray and brought to us as soon as she entered the Castaway Critters system.

She was not spayed, and it turned out that spaying/neutering was considered voluntary surgery during the shutdown, so she was unaltered when she came to us.

A few weeks passed and Michelle began to notice that Bellatrix looked like she was gaining weight – more and more every day.  She reached the obvious conclusion: kittens were on their way.  On April 29th five teeny-tiny kittens arrived, the best quarantine gift we could ever imagine.

Since then the teeny-tiny babies have grown more every day and they are now rambunctious three-month-olds.  Mouse, Lyra, Sekani, Severus, and Cinna have been a joy to raise and soon they’ll head to their very lucky furever homes – except Mouse who is our new bookstore kitten!

Monthly Book Recommendations

~Review by Michelle~


Through a Dark Glass by Barb Hendee

The concept for this book is exciting.  A magic mirror appears before a young girl who is forced to pick one of three brothers as her husband.  The mirror shows her the possibilities and at the end she must decide a path.  The book lived up to its engaging concept with fascinating characters and possibilities.
