WEST FARGO - At the sound of Jim Johnson's call, Lucky and Buddy come running.

Johnson's voice is catnip to the pair of kittens rescued in October from a window well buzzing with wasps.


By day, the two kittens follow the West Fargo man around the house and occasionally accompany him in a cat carrier to his construction jobs.

By night, they crawl onto his chest and purr away.

"They think I'm their mama; that's what's so crazy," Johnson said.
