An American woman named Kristen Flagg lives in the town of Norwich. Since the pandemic began, she has been taking pictures of the rodents that come into her mini-café.
“Due to quarantine life and feeling rather lonely and depressed, I went outside to find some happiness. Well, unfortunately, I couldn’t go too far due to lockdown, so I created my own little space at my home.”
The mini-cafe is now called Rosie’s and has furry guests coming every day. They have charming decorations, wooden tables, miniature crockery and treats, and toy “visitors”. The most frequent visitors are squirrels and chipmunks. The photographer tries to add something new every time to entertain her furry creatures – by the way, she makes up nicknames for each of them.
“My husband built six small picnic tables for the squirrels and I began taking photos of all our different visitors. I began to actually look forward to waking up and going outside to see our guests. I add new stuff every day for the squirrels and chipmunks to explore. All my little visitors have names, which makes it really fun.”
It all looks so cute and fabulous that it looks like it’s set in a cartoon about a mini-city inhabited by adorable rodents! Kristen’s photos are gaining popularity on social media, making millions of people smile and forget about their problems while looking at these cute shots of the miniature cafe.
“I also recently started Rosie’s Café Facebook page. I thought if these moments give me a smile, maybe they would help others too… Rosie’s is all about spreading smiles and kindness, especially now, in times we need it more than ever.”
