Mary Margaret (Maggie) came to us on March 11, 2011. Her owners moved and left this sweet girl behind, and the neighbor who had been feeding her realized that she was pregnant and turned her over to Challenger’s House. I picked her up from the vet, and they told me that she was ready to go into labor at any time.
THREE WEEKS LATER, on the morning of April second, she finally gave birth to six sweet babies – five boys, one girl. Since we’d expected her to give birth around St. Patrick’s Day, we decided on an Irish naming theme. Although she didn’t give birth until April, we stuck to that theme, and refer to the litter as a whole as The McMaos.
Ciara was the only girl.
