We brought Millie home on May 17, 2010. After I retired from teaching, I worked for 6 years at the local library. A group of those I worked with go to lunch monthly and one of those coworkers, our friend Heide, showed up at the May luncheon with photos of five orphaned kittens. Heide has always been active in finding homes for kitties (she has five of her own) and asked if any of those at the luncheon that day could provide a home to one or more of these adorable little cats. The next day we went to see the kittens. We were immediately drawn to a little gray one who reminded us of our dear Margo who died in 2005. Margo was a gray “dilute tabby” and it appeared that this was also the color of this new little girl. She has a distinct “M” on her forehead (more so than most tabbies) so we decided to call her “Millie.”
