Moving into a new home brings about excitement and trepidation. You have the chance to redecorate and make the space your own, but it’s a lot of work.
An existing home also comes with a bit of mystery. There are squeaky floorboards, strange sounds that go bump in the night and in Rosie’s case, flower petals littering her porch.
It wasn’t long after Rosie set up in her new home that she began to notice flowers being left on her doorstep. At first, she thought it might have been the wind blowing them there, she told Happiest.
But too many petals were blanketing her porch for the wind to be blamed. The second possibility was that because her home was one of many terraced houses connected by a garden path on the backside, a secret admirer could easily access the flower gardens and deposit the sweet gifts.
One day while fixing dinner, Rosie caught a glimpse of her secret admirer out the window. It was a female and she had a flower in her mouth!
Rosie rushed to grab her camera and film her secret admirer in action, jumping onto the porch to leave behind her token of appreciation. It was none other than the neighbor’s cat Willow!
“It was at least 10 flowers before we realized it was her.”
This incredibly furry and super cute cat was saying thank you to Rosie for all of her kindness. How she knew to bestow flowers of all things upon Rosie is beyond anything we can imagine!
“For a while, it was just a legend that it was her until yesterday when I was cooking and spotted her jumping down with a pink flower in her mouth. I was so excited that I went to film it because she’s so cute and I’d never seen a cat ever bring back anything but dead animals before.”
Rosie first met Willow while setting up her home. She was walking down the hallway and spied Willow sleeping there as if she had belonged there all along.
If their glass patio doors are shut, Willow will meow at the window nonstop until Rosie lets her in so she can take a cat nap. Rosie isn’t the only one that Willow fawns over either apparently.
Some of the neighbors keep cardboard boxes at their places for her to climb into and drift off to sleep in. They will even leave out cat food and special treats around their houses.
“Willow loves the attention from her neighbors. Willow rules over about six of the gardens, and I’m pretty sure she gets fed by everyone because she’s very difficult to say no to.”
It’s actually quite lovely how Rosie’s back deck looks all covered in rose petals. Willow prefers to bestow pink flowers upon Rosie, and lots of them.
“She clearly likes us because she steals flowers from (her owners) and leaves them on our deck.”
Willow’s actions are so endearing that not only does Rosie allow Willow into her home whenever she wants to enter, she also allows her to hang out on her couch. What an adorable secret admirer!
