We found out that J.K. Rowling, in addition to being a wildly successful author and Harry Potter empire-builder is also a RESCUE MOM and we love love love her for that. In October, 2007 J.K. adopted a retired greyhound, Sapphire, from The Greyhound Rescue Fife near Kinross, Scotland. When J.K. wrote out a check for the adoption, the poor woman at the shelter almost had a kitten when she realized who J.K. was! That gave me a giggle.

You can visit the rescue’s site and click on the “Harry Potter Page” link to learn more.

How fantastic! This gives me the warm fuzzies. And that picture of them together is a swoon-inducer.

Proud to bear the nickname Kitty Potter now more than ever. As the Doctor would say, “Good ol’ J.K.!”

Yay for J.K. Rowling (and Sapphire)!
