Patches, a mother tabby cat, and her two kittens lived in the woods outside. They drifted from home and hid throughout the brush, woodpiles, and trees exploring nature. This became dangerous at nighttime with foxes, weasels, hawks, and owls nearby. Patches always had to look out for her kittens to protect them. They ventured for a new home in during the days to keep themselves safe. One day Patches spotted a home lit with a single lamp, close to dusk. She and her kittens lived out in front of the house and would receive a saucer of milk every morning from out of the front door. The cats knew they were welcome, and knew this was their new home. They survived through storms by hiding inside the house under chairs and blankets, and were finally called to live there from the owner. They were safe from nature at last. ( )
