  2. The twins attract a myriad of critters…much to my delight. Their encounters with them brings smiles for days. They are to be commended for understanding how to treat wildlife. Quimper Kitty is very generous with her food.

  3. What a sweet little hedgehog. And how fortunate that the twins were there to rescue the little dear. Thank you for the link to the rescue…what a wonderful organization!
