Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Kittens Growing Fast

A rare moment of quietness--yes only five in a pile.. Verity likes to sleep off on her own.

Male Black Kitten--the only one not named yet...

Noah....that's just a yawn, even though he looks a bit fierce

Oh my Gabriel, when did you grow so big?

Tempe the Terrible....not really, okay, yes she is...but she is a
sweetheart too

Black Male Kitten...again...

Trinity ambushes her brothers...

Gabriel doing what he does best..playing!

Little Verity....she looks like a meer-kat or maybe a wombat..or just a bat?
Homely as sin, with a big nose, eyes and ears...but inside she is all sweet (when she isn't playing a game of hide and seek!)

Alright...all you lovely people who are crazy about animals.. Here is the update. No homes found as of yet. Even though I keep badgering, uh, asking everyone I see that seems suitable, the answer so far has been no. If I can make it happen....depends on the boys...mostly Sage--I will be bringing two probably three of the little ones inside around Thanksgiving. It will be a long slow process, and they will live in the kitty condo inside when I'm not around. This (hopefully) will not pressure Sage so much he has a nervous breakdown. Meshach will be upset too, but he seems a little more stable... For sure Verity and her black brother and well...probably Tempe, if she survives that long. She has worked very hard at attaching herself to me. It's her 'tude that worries me though... If an outstanding inside home came up I would consider letting Tempe or the black male go. Consider it... The other three kittens do need homes. They will go and live at my Mom's in the bug barn/garage (in a safe environment until a little older) if not placed.

Trinity in particular wishes for a lovely inside home. She is a timid little soul, who hides allot, but when she shyly comes out of hiding and I pick her up, she is just syrup all the way through. She would thrive and become a princess in a nice indoor home. If you are interested in a matched pair, Butterfly (their mom) would also dearly love to have an inside home. She is a very mellow cat, is leash trained (really!--she had someone who loved her once), and very easy to work with. Due to all the really big events that have happened in her life since she showed up, her personality has been somewhat squelched, so I'm not sure what her true self is like. I expect she would be a love bug in the end.

Gabriel and Noah...of course they would love to be indoor kittens too, but could thrive well as spoiled barn/farm kittens. Going together would be lovely for them. They both love attention and Gabe is especially sweet and has a big purr motor.

All of these kittens and their mother will be spayed/neutered before going to new homes. They will also be wormed, flea treated and up to date on vaccinations. If you are interested in giving loving homes, where the kittens will get the proper love and attention they need, let me know!

If things were different they could all stay here....... (i.e. Boone didn't have a high prey drive...)

I pray you find homes for all of them cuz gosh they are cuties! Cats are so misunderstood! They really are wonderful company:) Best Wishes for all of them!

They are misunderstood, I agree! It may be their own fault though.

What's wrong with Tempe?

Tammy said...

Pray hard Kristi as it isn't looking very good so far. They are allot of fun though.
JW...could be....could be..
L Helene, Nothing is wrong with her, she is just has a little (okay allot) of an attitude. Always the first to lead them into mischief, always trying to boss me around...but she is a sweetie too.
