Really, it's not fair to call Mama Mia with a 'mama' name anymore. Once Hobo escorted her to our yard, then she had the kittens, she has not been a mother since we TNR'd her in 2009. But I guess old habits die hard, because I cannot seem to call her any other name but Mama or Mamacita or Mommy Girl or Momsies. I've tried Cleo, Mimi, Nefertiti, Sweetie, and a host of other names, but Mama just keeps rolling off my tongue. She has always been the most feral of the 'o' cats; I can pet her now but for very short bits of time, and she'll run off at any quick movements or noises. Hearing her purr is a sweet sound, since it happens rarely, and Patty O. must be somewhere else since he MUST get in between me and any other cat.
