THE MONTH OF MAGGY


Maggy arrived to us first, born November 2003, and adopted to our home in January 2005.  
She is a pure bred tortie point, weighing in about seven pounds then, 
and still (most of which is fur).  
She has beautiful markings, with a "white star" on her forehead, brilliant blue eyes, 
gold/red furs behind her ears and on her paws.  
Never (or very rarely) a lap cat, only wanting affection on her own terms... 
the Siamese in her genealogy comes forth, loud and clear, when she wants something, 
as she is definitely a talker.  She's gracious, elegant, independent ... 
her full given name is Mary Margaret, but she's often called Mags, 
the Magster, Magoo or MagMag.  

I always thought the song lyrics most appropriate for Mag were, "She's A Lady".  

 It is a year ago this month that Maggy and I said our good-byes, and so I have
chosen to celebrate the "Month of Maggy".  For those not familiar with the Zoolatry
blog, or the Zoolatry girls ~ a little more of that story will be told over the next day or two,
and then we're just going to put paws-up and enjoy a wonderful collection of Maggy
photographs and memories, old and new.  
 
Thankful for Maggy!

  2. We didn't know anything about your early days with her, or that you didn't have her as a kitten, so this is so interesting to learn!

  11. Oh yes, she's a lady for sure. And she has a lot in common with Phantom, who also only wants affection or attention on his terms. But still totally lovable:) We are excited for the Month of Maggy.
