leaving Nico alone. That kitten drove Nico crazy and Nico got sick a
few weeks later (cancer) and died in 6 months. But Espy grew up to be
a very special cat, as was Nico. I'd swear he was Nico reincarnated
but they did overlap for a few months.
Still, after that I took in older cats. The kittens get adopted
quickly, the older cats have more trouble.
