Last Wednesday morning our beloved barn cat, Cat Cat, went to the Happy Mousing Grounds. She was discovered not doing well before breakfast and passed away in the lobby of the veterinarian's. She was a great hunter as well as a wonderful personality, and she will be sorely missed!
However, since a barn full of hay requires constant feline surveillance, we set out on Saturday to find the new barn patrol. We found Jynx and Brontë available for adoption. They have quickly become the most popular members of the family. They are currently living in the basement so they can become as attached to us as we are to them. We'll begin letting them out later this week. They don't have much in the way of winter coats, so we'll take that slow.
This cutie is Brontë. She is a 6-month-old grey tiger. Super playful kitten ! Watching her try to run on the concrete is like watching a cartoon character.
This beauty is Jynx. She is a 3-year-old tortoise shell. Very affectionate and still playful enough to keep up with Brontë.
