After letting her kits suckle, she licked them clean and purred until they fell asleep. Then she too went to sleep.
Would have been a short mini series on t v pbs about europeans in india mostly army and wives more talk than action rather curious form and of all short story collections only one listed as a novel along with Kim and Light that failed
"Emberkit (ginger tom), Hailkit (white she kit), and Dawnkit (light ginger she kit).'
