Stephanie Thompson Fleming of Behnke Nurseries in Beltsville, MD, shared this special cat memory:
"Granny was our first cat that found us. She appeared before we even built our house sometime in 1984. I think she lived to be 22 years old and one day just disappeared. We think she knew it was her time and she found a peaceful place to die. She was the BEST cat ever -- a great hunter and great friend. She loved the kids. Smokey appeared when she was about 18, so we think she trained him to behave."
"Granny loved to stretch out everywhere. In the greenhouses, she would lay down on the benches just so everyone walking by would rub her head."

She write, "Smokey... Our tomcat that showed up as a tiny runt. We had him for 18 years. What a cat. Use to have a caution sign on his cage at the vets. He pretty much hated all of us except my daughter Jaimie when he was young. As he got older he calmed down. We miss him so much. What a guy. Always thought he was a hunter.. NOT. would sneak up on everything and pounce, but what a klutz Here he is getting a sip of water and Smokey thinking he was hiding it."

Stephanie Thompson Fleming of Behnke Nurseries in Beltsville, MD., shared these pictutes of her grandson, Aaron, and her cat, Gabby, at their home garden.
Stephanie said, "I have always planned to write a book called the cats that have found us ... 36 years and 3 cats all whom just showed up and gave us love and joy. This is our current cat, Gabby, she found us one day about two years before our cat Smokey died. I think cats have a way of knowing things like that. She was already fixed and is such a nice cat. She is a man's cat as she follows my husband around like a dog. Pictured here is Gabby with a rabbit she caught. She is one of our best hunters. She is also pictured with Aaron saying 'hello' to the chickens."
