Here's one of mine, she traveled across the valley from my neighbor's house (3 1/2 miles away). The neighbors got her in town, along with several other cats, trying to replenish their barn cat population.

Not only has she tamed my JRT,
Jillie and Kitty Grey 1.jpg
she has also persuaded my allergy-prone husband (who has never before in 30 years of marriage allowed a cat in our house) to let her inside, and even spend the night when the weather is bad. She must have been a house kitten at one time, she has excellent indoor manners and she goes to the door and meows when she wants out!

Oddly enough, she seems to have been able to communicate to my other cats that if they DO NOT RUN, the JRT will not chase them! And when my neighbors show up to visit, this cat, who normally follows us around like a dog, disappears until the neighbors leave!!

I'm so jealous of the folks who have the lovely calicos/tortis, they are gorgeous!!

This is just one of our five barn kitties. Our favorite, Chester who was a dog in a former life and still thinks he is! He will jump in the truck with you to ride from place to place. He will jump on the four wheeler with us to ride from place to place. And his all time favorite perch...my husbands shoulders!
Here he is following my husband around while he was taking pictures of the snow. As soon as hubby stops moving. Chester will scale him like a tree to find his perch!!!

Well, I don't really have a barn cat, but here is Socrates (pronounced phonetically, he wasn't quite smart enought to be a philosopher). We rescued a barn cat a few years ago and she came to us pregnant. Socrates was one of the litter and I just had to keep him. He doesn't do well outside alone, but he loves to be outside with his people. He will follow us on hikes and go camping with us. You guys all seem to know the technical color name for your kitters but I just call him my purple kitty (his feet and nose are all a dark purple). Thanks for letting me share my furchild! Lovely pictures of all these kitters as well, thanks for sharing everyone.

Here he is following his dad (kevin) down the trail.

He just found the biggest cat box in the world! But its outside where people can see him so no way was he going to use it.

Now he is all tuckered out after a long hike. Ever seen a cat pant before? Very funny, but Dad carried him back so I think he might have just been hamming it up.

And his wild cat pose.

Let us know when you are ready to add a little Flair to your barn.

Ah thanks Dee! Hubby was taking random farm shots of the snow and there was Chester tagging along to get his perch to stop long enough to get his little feet warm!!!
