Ten Years Ago I Acquired My First Cat and She Saved My Life the Following Year
Both Mama and Pam taught me a lot about cats and made me into a major cat person. When I married David Vargo in 2013 he too became a cat person for the first time in his life.

Mama Cat was watching all of this very carefully. In this blog I've written numerous posts about her (and my other cat, Barney), but let me quickly recap her story. At age one she escaped from the home in which she'd originally lived (declawed but not spayed), had an adventure with a tom cat, and produced a litter of kittens. The number of kittens in her litter is unknown, but cats typically give birth to three to eight. Mama somehow managed to keep two of them alive until all three cats were rescued, taken to a vet's office (where she acquired her name), the two kittens weaned and given away, and Mama became the office cat for a few months until she was taken home with me.
