Maximillian ~ our resident guard cat
Max, as you may recall from an earlier post, came howling at our back door one bitterly cold December eve. He has since adopted us and we became his beloved family.. Even my husband who doesn't care for cats has been befriended by the persistent Max who never ceases to amaze as skillful hunter and faithful companion.

A garden without cats,
it will be generally agreed,
can scarcely deserve
to be called a garden at all.-
Beverly Nichols, Garden Open Tomorrow, 1968
