Why I'm Sittin' on the Barn Floor

Cause these kittens are just TOOOO cute!

New Kitties

I realized something yesterday, the husband and I have never had a kitten.  In the 15 years we've been together, never one kitten.  Sure, stray cats have come along but no little cuties!  I'm sure it's because we never meant to have cats.  The husband is allergic so if one showed up, he would humor me and let it stay outside. Can't imagine me taking in a stray, huh!

So when the husband got home yesterday, I showed him my trade.  He said, "man, they are little.  You sure they are weaned."  Of course.  But he thought we should give them milk.  I took care of it yesterday.  Then this morning, he called and said he cleaned their bowl and made them another milk dish, which he filled.  Yea, he doesn't like cats!  Sure!

Harley doesn't know what to think of them either.  It's the first time something smaller than him is around.  He is intrigued.  But they don't think the same of him.

I just love sittin' and watchin' them play.  They are runnin' amuck in the barn.

I just want to put them in my pocket.

I'm glad I took both of them.  They entertain each other.

Lil girl won this fight.  She made sure to eye Harley has she held down her opponent.  I think she was trying to intimidate him.  "You're next buddy!"

Miss Kitty is still peeved at me.

She'll come around.  You can't resist their cute kitty faces.  Now, fingers crossed, they don't disappear.

When I was little I had a book called Cats and Kittens, I think it was Little Golden Book...anywho, I loved that book because the illustrations looked so real and different from any other book. That arched back frizzy tail pic of your kitty looks just like one from the book! I also love Miss Kitty's fangs......she no look happy to see da babies! LOL! The Husband reminds me so much of mine........such a softy!

You're lucky, my dogs would see them as a midnight snack.

Ohhhh they are adorable.

Love that you have two, that way they can keep each other company in the winter.

I had a barn cat, Kelsey, well she started her life as a barn cat, and then she moved to the big city as a house cat with me. She was never meant to be a barn cat, and would always sneak into the former guardians house at night, and sleep on their bed.

She had a great life, and was loved.

I wonder if their eyes will stay blue; it looks like they might. Make sure you take them to the vet at 6 months old to get neutered- they come into heat shortly after that!
Poor Miss Kitty! How can she compete with such cuteness!

Owls will make them disappear and those rotten coyotes. Cat's take a lot more care than what most people think. I spent all winter trying to keep my 2 kittens alive but then that's in the great white north. Now that I think back I spent all winter just trying to keep me alive too and dogs and horses. Nothing as cute as a kitten and I actually think I'm a dog person. Those two are really cute.

They are way too cute. I love kittens... glad you are keeping them safe!

Linda said...

I like kittens......outside! The Bossman is just the opposite....he'd like to have one inside.

Lil Mama said...

I wish I could have a couple kitties. I live to close to the road though. I think they wouldn't last long.

lisa said...

Oh, yah the big kitty will get used to them soon. Our big cat decided to go ahead and play with our little one finally! But once in a while you hear the big one growl (yes, growl)! Yours sure are cuties that is for sure!
