Every farm needs a few cats. They're great for chasing mice and other undesireable small rodents. They can also be quite lively and entertaining. When we bought the farm, there were several feral cats living under the old mobile home. Being the humane person that I am who seems to attract strays, I took all that I could catch (4) to the vet for vaccinations and spay/ neutering. $200 and a few weeks later, one disappeared. A neighbor said he thought he saw him laying on the road. After we pulled the old trailer away, the three remaining cats took up residence at the next door neighbor's house. I guess they were mad at me for getting rid of their home. Or, maybe they liked her food better. They weren't very friendly anyway. At any rate, I needed some new kittys. Old Yeller, the orange male kitty found us first. He was dropped off in front of my house and took up residence in the garage. Just a few days before he showed up, a friend posted on FB that she had kittens to give away. Of course I needed at least two of those. Nanny Goat and Dolly Parton made friends with Yeller right away. When the house was sold, they had to move from my garage to the barn. They seem to like their new home and have even made friends with the chickens and the sheep. The sheep are tolerating them too. I think its about time to take them to the vet. Hopefully this time they'll stick around.
