Cats

Our two barn cats are doing well.  They have done their job and we are rodent free in the barns.  We even have less sparrows deciding to make nests in the rafters.  Both cats have learned to walk across the barn using the rafters in the ceiling to escape the dogs on the floor.

Here is Kitty.  She likes people.  She likes to hunt and actually eats what she catches.  She runs to Jon for a hug and scratch whenever she hears his voice.  He scratches her with both hands, one on each side of her body and starts at her neck and goes to her tail.  Jon calls it a cat wash.

This is Felix the Cat.  He distrusts people, and goes elsewhere when he hears voices or the dogs.  He hunts out in the pasture, not close in.  He comes to me when I call his name.  I can hold him and sit with him on my lap.  I am sure Felix would rather be a house cat than a barn cat.

This is our newest addition.  He arrived as a stray, discovered by the dogs in one of the greenhouses.  He is very young.  We have named him Tiberius.  Since he moved into Galpon 2, the other cats have moved out and reside in Galpon 1.  So far, Tiberius is more curious about the dogs than afraid.  He does not wander out of the Galpon, yet. With luck Tiberius will be the LAST cat addition for a while.
