We are extremely happy to be adopted by one of the many local kitties. We have named her Ursa Minor (in partial homage to Ursula, who was a very wonderful calico in Lubbock). Her nickname (astrologically incorrect as it may be) is Little Dipper. She comes to see us almost every day. She's really sweet and has good manners for a street cat. But (in true calico fashion) she talks too much. In her defense, she purrs too much too. In May, 2001, she finally let us see (and even play a little with) her kittens. She's had at least one other litter since we met her, but these are the ones she brought out for us to see.
