    My mother (age 87) has sheep and geese. The mice love her barn and she has been hesitant to get more than one old kitty. So I got a couple from my friend and took them to the barn this weekend. Talk about happy little fur balls!! Mother is sure enjoying watching them too. They were so cute I wanted to keep them myself!! They follow each other like little twins, which is what they are!

    Then when they got to the top, it was a whole new view!

    They found haystrings everywhere, and it was like a party to them.

    And wow, it was fun to climb! Better than the backyard they were raised in.

    Not sure - maybe 7 or 8 weeks. Old enough to be very independant and happy. I think both are boys, but I'm not very good in that area.

    Oh ya, Mother babies all her animals. She pets them, makes sure they have lots of crunchies, plus scraps from roast beef from dinner, bowl of water, and a blankie to sleep on. Those little guys will live like a prince.

    Oh, good. I grew up in an environment where the barn cats pretty much had to fend for themselves.

    They are soooooo cute! But the area you are in is prime coyote company, and having lived there myself, do you think they'll be safe? Cats and dogs under 50 lbs. didn't last more than 30 minutes outside where I was, and that was in a city!

    Oh, how cute!
    Had to stop at vets today to get food for the cats.
    There were 6 little kittens in there looking for homes. I wanted to take them all home! Took me about an hour to get out of that office....had to play with all of them.

    I have to smile that you said "orange". Mother said that she usually didn't like "yellow" cats much most of the time, so I quickly replied that these are CARAMEL color. She smiled at that. When I called her last night, she gve me the report that they are getting pretty active bouncing around on the hay, and follows her to the doorway when she feeds the geese.
