You’ve already met 3 of the members of the crime-fighter litter (Batman, Starsky, and Hutch), so let me introduce Robin, the final hero. Unknown to us, Fuzzy was nursing a litter in the woods for several weeks. She brought the crime fighters up to the house and into the colony when she decided they were ready for public viewing.
Robin was an unassuming, but friendly, member of the feral cat colony. Mom Fuzzy was liked by everyone, be they feline or human, and Robin took after his mother. As you can see from his fur blowing in the spring breeze, he also inherited his mother’s coat. (The “which one of these does not belong” white cat in the photo is Fluff, a competitor for Fuzzy’s title of “Miss Congeniality.”)
I’ve briefly mentioned Robin before as a member of the Three Musketeers–Duff, Scamper, and Robin. If the Musketeers had a leader, it was Robin. He often led the parade as they went out on patrol, and Robin held the place of honor on the pedestal when they took an afternoon break.
But Robin wasn’t picky about his friends. If his BFFs weren’t handy he was happy to hang with anyone, as long as the weather was good and the verbena was blooming.
