As a child the first cat I remember is Pardner who was not strictly mine, but was one of perhaps five all black cats our family kept on Queen Circle in South Hadley Falls, Massachusetts. He was the son of Mother Cat who was rather negligently allowed to have kittens unimpeded by medical technology. Somehow, homes were found for each of Mother’s new litters, and if not, the kittens were allowed to stay, which is how Pardner came to grow to adulthood with his brothers and sisters in our house.
