The Family - Juno (L), Mimosa and Miss Maggie (R)
On the way to our wedding one very hot June afternoon, driving through our country lane, we saw three tiny kittens beneath a Mimosa tree.
We spent the next two nights into the early hours attempting to rescue them from the ravages of the summer heat and other dangers.
The kittens had been dumped on the lane and survived for several days eating bugs. We managed to catch two of them; they were no larger than the palm of my hand.
Mimosa - Mim for short - is a red point, aptly named for the tree we found him under. He is regal, loving, and intelligent.
The other, a seal point, we named Juno, since the asteroid Juno was overhead that night.
And before we realized it we had an addition to the family - Miss Maggie. She has the same blue eyes and the color markings of both parents.
We named her Maggie because when her Mom chattered to her it sounded like Marg Simpson calling 'Maggie'.
They are still a family, and in that family they include my husband and I.
We adore our entertaining cats!
