I remember trying to catch one of the barn kittens to keep as a pet. It was tiny, but definitely the "Devils spawn". I was scratched really bad all over. then Mother spanked me because I had been told to leave them alone. lol

I love it!!!

No barn can be without at least one of these. Ours tended to be people friendly too, though. And we spayed/neutered them so that we could control the population.

When I was (much) younger, and spent day after day standing in the middle of a ring teaching, we had a wonderful barn cat who clearly felt I couldn't make it through the day without her providing me with periodic snacks. She would come trotting across the ring to deposit yet another dead animal at my feet with a look of total satisfaction on her face. "See, I knew you were looking a little hungry. Here's an appetizer. You eat this, and I'll go get you some more!"

Of course we had another barn cat who HATED the farm dogs, and would RIDE them out of the barn, chewing savagely at their necks like a tiny cougar. The farm dogs RARELY went into the main barn more than once.

Awww, that's so cute! Yeah, even the most domesticated cat still has a bit of the wild left in them!

LOL, yes, too funny But can we talk?

I know there are many cat lovers here . . .and I've had my share of indoor kitties as well. But . . .cats are native to the Middle East, not to North America . . .they were BROUGHT here by silly gooses who lacked a simple understanding of ecology. North American birds haven't adapted to feline predation and as a result, BILLIONS of native birds are killed annually in the US. If you look closely at nature, you'll see how animals have adapted to predation by native species . . .by camouflage, color, odor, etc. Because cats aren't native here, their prey are defenseless.

Not only are BILLIONS of our Native bird species killed annually in the United States alone . . .but the cost is in the billions as well, so says the American Bird Conservancy: http://www.abcbirds.org/newsandrepor...es/101208.html

Sorry for my soap box . . .but it's something I'm passionate about. Please, if you love a kitty(s), keep it indoors away from wild creatures, cars, antifreeze and our native birds
