In the midst of all the chaos of this autumn, we welcomed a new feline family member into the fold. Everyone in the extended family is completely charmed by Milton.
I know you are, too, right?
He was rescued by some dear friends who weren’t able to keep him themselves, but thought of our cat-loving household. They named him Milton, for a cat they’d had years ago – not knowing that my grandfather, who lived on this land, was named Milton!
Such a cool synchronicity. I feel like Grampa sent him to cheer us up while we’re grieving the loss of my Dad (who was Milton’s son-in-law) and also Percy LoveCat.
He’s a loving, extraverted cat who wants to play and cuddle. He loves to explore – curious is his middle name. He also adores dogs and wants to play with them. We’re delighted to have him in the family.
