It’s International Cat Day! Have you met our two garden cats, Remington and Helen? Most of our visitors have met #RemingtontheGardenCat because he’s extremely outgoing. He likes to think he is in charge of guest relations. Helen is a bit more shy and likes to keep to herself in our Horticulture Center. She has poor eyesight so she gets startled easily. Once she warms up to you, she is the sweetest cat and loves to be pet. Next time you visit the gardens, make sure to say hello to Remington and Helen! #internationalcatday Photos taken by volunteer photographer, Maria Margulis. ... See MoreSee Less
