the wonder book of kittens ~
by barbara waring with illustrations by cynthia iliff koehler ~
vintage from 1963 ~
tabitha was the sweetest, most fun mom ever for her 5 daughters ~
we now still have 3 of tabitha's daughters, all 16 years old, & their auntie sabrina, who is 17 ~
god bless the kitties, big & small ~
tabitha & sabrina got to spend their earliest young days playing in our warm socal backyard, but became indoor kitties exclusively up here in pdx ~
while growing up, her kittens got playtime out in our securely enclosed backyard every evening before dinner.. my son's job was to be cat shepherd for them ~
tabitha was a long-haired torby, her sister (littermate) sabrina is a siamese mix, & her kittens included tabbies, a torby & a dilute calico ~
we will miss her so much, she was the princess of our whole house & realm..
p.s. the s stands for sassafrass..
