The three grey tabbies. Madonna is the one who started the whole clan. We called her Madonna because she was quite loose with her virtues. However, in retrospect, she brought many wonderful fuzzy souls who have enlightened our lives significantly. Howard (actually Ms. Howard) was the wildest of all, and one of the daughters of Madonna. We always thought Howard was male until our gardner pointed out a bunch of little tiny newborn kittens behind a bush one day in Austin, Texas, with mother Howard in attendance. Howard brought us Max, Cream, Nosey (a twin of Max who was killed by an automobile) and Emily. Emily is a very sweet gentle soul. She has a squeeky meow and loves laps. Her feelings bruise easily. Emily gets along with pretty much everybody. She's a real Southern Belle.
