Accounting for the Barn Kittens

It's been a couple of years now - maybe even three - since we discovered two litters of four kittens wandering around the property at Hawksbill Cabin.  Eventually, we figured out who the mothers were, and once the kittens were old enough, we got help from Cats' Cradle to catch them and get them all fixed.

We also went to work trying to get as many adopted out as we could.  Inevitably two of them succumbed to the life of being a stray, but now all of the kittens have been adopted out except for one - we call him Little Guy, and he's shown in the photo attached.

We get other strays from time to time, most famously Buster Barncat, whom we adopted, but this guy has been the steady one around here.  He's domesticated enough to hang around the place in the little shelters Mary has set up.

I would like to see him rescued too, like the others, but I know that he'd be a little work.  He does come running up to us now whenever we're around, so I think he'd make a good pet.

Drop a line via the comments if you're interested in him and we'll see if we can work something out.
