My friends know me a little too well. One summer day, I went to a friend’s house to collect fieldstone for my garden. But there was something else waiting for me...a litter of kittens had wandered into their yard the night before. Maria had the good sense to make sure I saw the kids playing with the kittens, and along with my truckload of stone, I had a little gray kitten. What a joy Skippy has been! He is the wildest little monkey, stirring up trouble all day long. He is tireless, and can destroy a houseplant with a smile. Now a mature cat, he still runs and plays just the same as when he was a baby.
