Our Kit (aka Miss Kitty, Kitten, Little Shit, Hey YOU etc etc) is becoming quite the personality around here. She will no doubt be a great mouser and might just keep the barn swallow population down a bit. I watched her catch a few barn swallows during the summer and know when she crosses the barnyard because of the loud protests of friends and family of said caught barn swallows.
Above is Kit discovering how funny it is to tease a kid...a goat kid that is. Our farrier brought Skippy (or something like that) over while he worked on our horses. He tethered him to his truck. It wasn't long before Kit figured out if she stay juuuust far enough away, he couldn't reach her. How clever of her.
Then she started getting closer and little inoccent Skippy started getting fresh. This is when our farrier told us that Skippy had been humping anything and everything. Cats were not off limits. I think Skippy got a swipe across this nose for his advances... :)
She loves to mess with the sheep, I've even seen her sleeping on their backs as they line up along the shade of the barn. Here she is messing with Cybil and Cyb found her very intriguing.
We're worried about her with winter coming up. We had outside cats when I was a kid and they always did just fine. I'm sure Kit will too but she'll have much better digs than those cats did. She'll have a heated water dish and we plan on making her a straw cave lined with a fleece cat bed put up in the barn for her. Being a cat...she probably won't use it. I'm just looking forward to her catching MICE (evil grin).
