They were very surprised one summer day to find a strange bundle in their nest, a small gray and black bundle of fur and ears and legs, with eyes not yet open. They knew by its mewing that the bundle must be a kitten, a lost kitten with no family and no name. “Poor kitty,” said the sisters. “Let him stay with us,” said Lester. “But a cat!” said

He dashed along the walls of the room looking for his mousehole. “It’s a kitten!” cried Peggy, as Mickey squeezed through the hole.
