Yes, that's right. We have more cats. #8 and #9 to be exact!
Meet Missy and Lionel! Our friends Mac and Brenda needed to find homes for these two barn cats, so we gladly took them in! They are bunking in the former pig pen for a couple of weeks until they know our place is home!
Missy likes to relax on a bale of straw.
I think Lionel's ear is clipped because he was a feral, but I'm not 100% sure because he's such a lap cat, it's hard to believe he was ever truly feral.
I gave them some comfy beds to make their stay in kitty-prison a little happier.
Lionel is orange kitty #4! He is creamy-orange like Emerson and fluffy like Julius.
These two love each other. They are both very mellow, and since Redford is too, I'm hoping they will all be friends and keep each other company.
This guy just laps up attention!
Missy is a little, er, fluffy! But not to worry, she's not expecting. Both cats are fixed and vaccinated!
What a sweet, happy little girl. She's quite petite.
I will keep them confined for at least two weeks and see how it goes.
Meanwhile, I found THIS in the bathtub the other day...
SOMEBODY gifted us with a dead shrew. And a fly. Whichever cat it was would have caught the shrew outside in the cage and brought it all the way upstairs from the basement to the second floor! I only hope I didn't shower with it in the tub. When I don't have my contacts in or glasses on, I'm blind as a bat.
And it's starting to look like a real farm around here. The other day we had 100 bales of straw delivered...
That should help keep everyone warm this winter! Next wee need to get in some hay for the ponies we're adopting. The horse fencing is going up as I write (all the fenceposts are in!) and this week, construction will start on box stalls in the barn.
That's all the news that's fit to print for today. Have a great Sunday!
