On another note, I found this wonderful blog today that is written by a woman who lives in Iowa when I goggled “farm cats.” Her small farm is under water at the moment. Her family and animals are in my thoughts: Plum Creek Miniatures.
Farm cats are as important to a farm as any dog. They keep mice and even rats at bay. Here are two of ours, ginger pants(cat pictured above) and pepper. Ginger pants is not wholly tame, he loves to be petted but is still quite wild. My mother just found him in the barn. He is sooo beautiful isn’t he?
