our barn cat


As I was walking down our street this weekend I came across a litter of kittens living in our neighbors potted plant in the front yard. I have never been a cat person but when 6 kittens run out to you there just isn't anything else you can do but love them! I, of course, texted Jim a picture to let him know we would most likely take one home that day and within a few hours one of the of the kittens were ours! I am a little overwhelmed because cats are so different but I am in LOVE. She is the sweetest and funniest thing ever! We are hoping she will be an indoor/outdoor cat because we need help keeping mice and things out of the chicken feed. Due to her being a hunter we decided on the name Katniss but Jim says he is going to just call her Cat because it's funnier. Unfortunately I already find my self just calling her Cat...

  1. Cats are wonderful. I have three and they all have their different personalities. I love them to death. It's funny you call her Cat because my mother who is french Canadian actually named her cat Minou which means kitten in french. It doesn't matter what name you give them as long as they are loved! Katniss would have been awesome though! xo, Kayleigh
