Seven years ago, on the Monday night before Thanksgiving, a tiny black and white kitten wandered up our driveway and into our hearts. My kids first thought it was a small skunk, but it began meowing. It meowed not just at my kids, but at the two excited dogs who were very interested in it. They brought the brave little cat into the house, and it became a forever cat.
We named her Miss Nina Garcia after the famous fashion editor because she was so beautiful and self-possessed. Now we can’t imagine our lives without her.
