Cookie was freaking out the sheep, sticking his head in and out of a gap haymow wall.
This little guy showed up in the barn while I was doing chores yesterday. My kitties were cautiously curious/territorial. Our visitor is (I am guessing) close to their age, slightly smaller and lighter. He was terrified, shaking with fear. I tried to approach him several times, but my guys were always there, intimidating him. When I fed my kitties and they were busy eating I was able to make better progress. He cautiously came to me and let me pet him. Then he was very affectionate. Clearly this little guy is used to people and has been loved. He is very thin, probably hasn’t eaten in several days.
So, I don’t know if he is lost or if he has been abandoned. For now I have him in the house to keep track of him. He has settled right in, clearly he is accustomed to being a house cat. I have posted his picture on my fb page and shared it around. If he is lost I want to reunite him with him family. However, if he is abandoned we will be keeping him. My Mom has been wanting a solid gray kitty and he is a really nice boy. We haven’t named him yet. Will give it a couple of days to see if anyone claims him. We don’t want to get too attached.
At twilight the pigeons head to the haymow to roost. If the kittens are outside they watch intently. I guess Trouble thinks she can get a better view from on top of the fence post.
Squeaky, you are such a little piggy!
She just finished eating. Look how fat her little tummy is!
One of these hens is not like the others….
One of these “hens” is Cookie the kitten stealing chicken treats! (I mixed their wet mash with yogurt tonight.)
Albert stealing the chicken treats
Ruby is looking at me as if to say, “Aren’t you going to do something about this, Keen?!!”
Making messes for entertainment
So Albert knocked over the chicken food when I was getting ready to feed the hens. Scarlet was more than happy to clean up the mess. Albert seemed to enjoy watching her from above. Did he spill it on purpose.
