One of our three barn cats had kittens on the 22nd of April. This is a good thing...because that means more "snake killers" in the barn, and I'm all about that. I decided that we'd keep all four, along with the three we have...and get them all fixed (for a small fortune) and have a complete war on snakes and rodents in the barn.
Not so fast............
The babies went missing...and were nowhere to be found for a full week. During that time, we found 4 MORE kittens...much older..eyes open..running around..that one of our other barn cats apparently had.
We had completely given up hope on the other litter, and decided we'd keep these kittens instead for our "snake killers".
While Dylan was in the hayloft checking the garlic he heard tiny meows coming from below. These sounded much smaller than the litter we just found the day prior. You guessed it..he found the first litter...which the momma kitty had moved back to their original birthing place..minus one.
So NOW we have 7 babies....3 barn cats..and 2 house cats. That's 12 cats. That's too many..even for me.
Anyone need a cute, cuddly kitten?? PLEASE let me know. :)
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
