Welcome Mando Kitty!

We've been remiss in not introducing you to the newest member of our little mando family.

Meet Miss Hermione Daisy.


HD came into our lives going on a month ago. Just about the time I had decided our home needed someone else to love, she showed up on the doorstep of Shameless Agitator. Knowing that they could never keep her for long because of ferocious kitty allergies in their family, Shameless called to inquire whether we might have room. What timing! Not only did "Sweetie Pie" have the Shameless Agitator Stamp of Approval, but she was declawed, spayed, highly domesticated, and friendly.

The kids named her Hermione after the bright little witch of Harry Potter fame. Daughter of Mando contributed the middle name, "Daisy". We love having her as part of our family. I love having her around to serve as a "grounding" element when my babies aren't home.

A good friend told me recently that dogs remind us how wonderful we are; cats remind us how little we matter. While that was my assumption going in, I'm happy to say so far that's not how it's been. She has learned she can't sit on my lap when I practice, and she likes a good trad tune now and then. Here's one just for her, performed on an old recording by Doc Watson.
