Little Carmichael, affectionately called “Mikey”, is the latest addition to Dana and Nipper’s family of four-legged adoptees. Carmichael is named after Dottie Carmichael Weaver, CCAW’s founder. James and Nan Anderson found him as a tiny abandoned kitten in the road near their home in Bicknell. They bottle-fed him and cared for him until he was old enough to move on to a new home. Dana and Nipper had recently lost another of their adopted cats, who had been a great friend and playmate of dog Zepher. Tragic as it is to lose a member of the family, it is also an opportunity to give another animal a home. Carmichael was adopted by Dana and Nipper, and within four days the little kitten and dog Zepher had already become friends and playmates.
