Our middle baby, Rowan Murphy Powers. Born 26 July 2009 at the Retablo Maine Coons Cattery in Earleville, MD (http://www.retablo.net/) He is a Red Classic Tabby with white. His father is CH Luckypaws Proteus of Retablo. His mother is Adventhill Corazon of Retablo. Rowan came to live with us on 17 October 2009 when he was 12 weeks old. He's now 7 years old and weighing in at 16.5 pounds.
Rowan is a form of the Irish name Rúadhán (Roo awn) and essentially means "red-haired" or "Red One."
In December 2016 Rowan was diagnosed with severe Inflammatory Bowel Disease and has had his spleen removed. We are launching into the long process of finding food that won't cause inflammation and drugs/holistic treatments that will help minimize it.
