You may recall that in July, most of our farm cats met their demise in an accident with the neighbor’s swather. It’s been a mouse-ridden summer at the farm, and we haven’t had enough cats to BEGIN to keep up with the demand. I was delighted, this morning, to discover an entire family of cats that needed a new home. Miranda is the momma; she’s named after my very first cat when I was little. There are five kittens, 16 days old. Miranda is settling in fine. She’d caught her first mouse in less than two hours. May they live a long and happy life here at our farm.
