A few weeks ago, I posted about adorable farm kittens born under our porch. I am not a cat person, so this discovery was met with mixed emotions. Despite being allergic and having no desire to ever own a cat, I was won over by the tiny critters.
Couldn't help myself.
Luckily, they decided to move their home base to the shed next door. As cute as they were, they started murdering innocent baby rabbits and I didn't really want them pooping and peeing under our porch. Now we can admire them from a yard away instead of our front door.
A few days ago, one of the barn cats from across the street was hanging in our driveway. To our surprise he greeted us when we approached him. Usually these cats are rather skittish, and there are many of them around the neighborhood.
But this guy was friendly, and he followed my son around for a bit. My little guy loved it, and I let him feed the cat the leftover kitten food (yes, I know, don't feed the strays...).
The two hung out all afternoon.
The next day, he was waiting for my son on the porch.
Besides, we're "country" people now. I think it's time I get used to all the animals. Allergies or not, these cats are not going anywhere. I do know they will never live in my house, but I'm sure my kids will try and sneak a few in my garage. I guess I'll never have to worry about mouse terds.
Always a silver lining.
Happy Wednesday all, make it totally amazing!
