  • Crouching kitties at the door

    For the past few months we’ve been taking care of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target, while our daughter spends some time with my sister in California.
    They’re both gray tabby cats, each about 10 years old.
    My husband calls Mohawk “Hawkeye” or “Hawk” and I’ve nicknamed Target “the weasel” because he’s long and he slinks through the house like I imagine a weasel would.
    Lately, we’ve noticed another cat hanging around, white with butterscotch coloring.

    At our house we had a set of books called the Junior Classics.
    Each of my brothers and sister had a favorite story my mother would read.
