stray cat with no name that wandered on to the KAMR property about a month ago has given birth to 5 kittens in the garage at the property.
The mother cat described by "The Kat" as a calico was impregnated when it arrived and has increased in size since it adopted the headquarters as it's home. Other family members who viewed the feline family dispute the claim that the breed is calico but claim it is a "tiger" cat. After researching the subject it is found that the definition of calico is broad and only requires that the cat be tricolored, thus this cat would meet those qualifications. The research also uncovered that calico cats are not a breed of their own but can exist in any breed and that they are almost always female. Male calico cats which are extremely rare are sterile because they do not posses the correct chromosome to reproduce.
The Kat who began feeding the feline after it's initial arrival allowed the cat to remain at the property but stopped short of allowing the mother cat to occupy a place inside the headquarters because of her allergys. It wasn't until
Jean Poquette Hansen brought in the cat that a place was made in the garage for her to have her litter.
A quandary now exists as to what will happen to the mother and the kittens when they reach the age of separation. The cat and the kittens are available to anyone who wants them now but if there is no one willing to take the family then when the kittens reach the age of separation they will need to go to good homes. We do not want the mother cat as a pet and she is adoptable as well, the adoptee is responsible for spaying the pet.
GOLFING POLL SHOWS PLENTY OF INTEREST
An informal poll run in the last two weeks of The Newsletter has shown that a large number of people would be interested in having a family golf outing. A foursome, threesome, 5 couples, and one person made up the numbers on the poll hoping to attend

the outing. Stephonia Prevost conceived the idea two weeks ago at a dinner prior the the Hairball concert and many agreed that it was a good idea. Prevost volunteered to organize the affair and book the course at the Royal Scott where the couple has their mansion.
The Newsletter has offered their services to Prevost for an on line sign up sheet and a participation list should she decide to use it.
As of now no schedule, times, or pricing has been set but a mid August date was discussed and Prevost is to explore group booking possibilities near that time frame.
An afternoon outing would be nice with timing planned so that non golfing spouses could join the group for dinner after the round. Dinner could be at the clubhouse or at another location if desired.
