kittens

hermione-underfoot has just given birth.

two tailless like her and a third with a tail. they all seem to have her tabby coloring. we are going to keep them all and have a sign carved in granite "free kittens". this might seem irresponsible but we live on a road that is notorious for killing every animal that you cared about.

besides there is plenty of work around here for good farm cats. if her kittens take after her we'll be in the business of raising great mousers.

Congratulations to The Pile and the proud new mama for the new editions to the farm! You? Four cats? I never thought I'd see the day!Were the kids there to witness the event?

What a beautiful cat. She looks like she might have a bit of Maine Coon cat in her ;). My daughter wants a cat, and I'm waffling, as I don't want a cat, BUT we could use a good mouser ....

Congrats on the new additions to your family.

Kittens are so sweet. Here's hoping they are good mousers.

at the place where i pick up our supplimental milk, they have cats everywhere.

i love barn cats. i think that should be a registered breed...american barn cat. the people i got patchouli from joked about giving out certificates to certify they are barn cats.
