Flowers can be just the perfect pick-me-up for someone and when one woman found flowers dropped at her doorstep, she was so flattered by the gesture. But who were the flowers from? Did she have a secret admirer? There was a lot of mystery surrounding the flower petals that littered Rosie’s front porch and when she discovered who they were from, she was floored.
Rosie moved to a new home and soon began to find the flowers left at her doorstep. Since they weren’t attached to any stems, she was initially a bit confused, telling Happiest that she thought perhaps it was the wind that had blown the flowers there.
When more flowers appeared, she knew it wasn’t the wind, but thought that maybe someone was sweetly plucking them from a nearby garden and leaving the beautiful token.
Then, one day, while fixing dinner, Rosie saw her secret admirer in action — and it wasn’t a person at all!
She caught a cat with a flower in her mouth, so Rosie grabbed her camera to document the sweet feline in action, who approached the porch with the flower and dropped it. It turned out to be her neighbor’s cat, Willow.
Rosie noted: “It was at least 10 flowers before we realized it was her.”
She explained: “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 had met the cat before when she moved in and when the glass patio doors are shut, the cat meows at the window and Rosie lets her in for a nap. Apparently Willow just wanted to pay back Rosie for all the nap times!
Other neighbors have also had run-ins with the adorable cat and some leave cardboard boxes at their homes so she has a snuggly place to rest or leave treats and cat food for Willow.
Rosie explained: “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.”
Rosie added: “She clearly likes us because she steals flowers from (her owners) and leaves them on our deck.”
Willow has definitely found the perfect way to butter Rosie up — she’s even been invited into Rosie’s home to lounge on her couch!
While many people who commented on the video of Willow’s flower delivery were won over by the adorable gesture, one person noted: “this cat is more romantic than 95% of the people I know.”
One commenter was surprised that the cat plucked flowers and brought them to Rosie, but another person explained: “It’s not unusual for a cat to bring dead animals to a person’s doorstep as a gift. Maybe this is just a more pleasant variation of that behavior.”
