Well, since you gave me special permission, Bogie, I'll fill in the beginning of New's life. She did come into my life on New Year's Day in 1982. A little girl who lived in my neighborhood appeared at the door with a little kitty in her arms (the girl must have been 5 or 6 years old, and the kitty 4 or 5 months old). I told the little girl that I would keep the kitty if she would help me "prepare" a place for her. At my insistance, the girl went home to get her mother's permission, then came back to help me round up an old dishpan for a litter box (my back yard had plenty of white sand with which to fill it), designate an old margerine tub for water, etc.
The kitten's full name was "A New Beginning". I always appreciated that Bogie and WS were willing to take New in. They certainly provided a wonderful home and experience for her. Thanks, again, Bogie.

P.S. It wasn't until we moved from Florida that I realized that New was black and white. As long as we were in Florida, where our yards were full of pine trees, New's lounging in the pine needles dyed the white fur, butterscotch.

Have you any photos of Black Angel?

See? I knew I would mess up the story If I tried to tell your part - I thought it was a little boy with the kittens.

I haven't looked that far back in my archives. I did find one picture of Fluffy (Dudettes cat), but haven't seen any of Butterscotch or Midnight. Hoewever, they may be where I didn't look.

I don't have any pictures of Spook, and I was shocked that I didn't have any grown up pictures of Argent!

Somewhere in the vast photographic archives of this house, we must have photos of Butterscotch, Fluffy, and Captain Midnight. As far as I recall, the only cat that involved a boy was Captain Midnight. When we placed the ad in the newspaper about her, our paper boy said that he had been trying to find a home for her. Fluffy and Butterscotch came to our door, each firmly tucked under the arm of a little girl who was trying to find homes for them. They were, as you know, litter mates. They should have had WS to build their cat house. Perhaps it wouldn't have been painted red if WS had built it (and it would have been better constructed, of course!) *tittering*

I love these stories you're posting on your animals ... may borrow the idea and do the same on my blog!
