Barn Cats - Palooza
First, there's Momcat - she is the mother of the kitten Mary adopted last year. She's probably 2 years old, and like all of the kittens and the two mothers, we had her fixed with Cats Cradle in Harrisonburg in 2012. This cat likes to go for a walk back in the wood lot with Tessie.
Then there are the two red brothers. These two are from the other litter of kittens that showed up under our pool deck in 2012. They're fixed and they hang around up under our garage/barn - hence the name, barn cats. We call these two Patch and Little Guy.
Last, of course, is Buster. He just started showing up a month or so ago - leading to my hypothesis that he was adopted by somebody, but they left him behind when they moved. He is the only one we haven't had fixed yet, although we plan to, and he is confident enough around us that he will allow himself to be picked up - and also he walked in the front door last weekend when I was feeding all of them.
We have a standing offer to anyone who would like to adopt Buster - we will get him fixed and get his first round of shots. Let me know in the comments if you are interested.
Here's a link to Cat's Cradle - if you can spare anything to support a stray animal support organization, this is definitely one that deserves it:
