Winnipeg (Winna) (was Camomile, Chamomile)

Chamomile and her siblings were found in a garage when they were about a week old. They were headed to a shelter until CIW intervened. A few days later Mom joined them and stayed with them until the kittens were ready to find their forever homes. All of the kittens were wonderful, sweet, playful babies and in due course, three of the kittens were in their forever places. Chamomile was the only kitten still looking for the special family for her. She had been exposed to a very serious illness and had to be isolated to make sure she was healthy. Over several weeks she passed all the tests. Her foster Mom had been looking for a special kitten to join their family. Chamy just charmed her and seemed to have been sent to them. So Chamomile found her family! She also found her forever name - Winnipeg (Winna for short). She has a big brother and sister kittens to play with, a two legged brother to pester and and Mom and Dad to care for everyone. What a lucky kitten! What a lucky family!
