A typical morning for Miss Prairie Pussytoes...

Oh the joy of watching our feline companions survey their kingdom - squinting in the sunlight - sniffing here and there to see who visited over the night...then a stretch and roll in the sunshine!
Thank you for sharing snippets of your life on the farm with all of us! I enjoy it more than you know. I and my waiting primitive stalls...waiting waiting waiting...for the Shetland Sheep pair soon to move in with us. :)

Shetland sheep! Yea for you. They are sweet - definately keep them in at night but you knew that. We have some people a few miles away that raise them.

What a beautiful girl in a beautiful setting.

Sorry if I should know this already (I just recently found your blog), but is that one of your feral cats? She looks way to cuddly and pristine.

I hope she's not. That definitely looks like a cat who should get a lot of stroking and love (not that you don't love the feral cats, just not in contact form).

Yes, Maggie, she's semi ferel. All the cats here are, except big Tony who is the one cat that comes in the house. He started out as a stray ferel. The cats here came in varying degrees of wildness - at the moment, the remaining cats do not allow anyone but me to really nteract with them, since I feed them everyday. Each cat is a bit different as to what it will tolerate. i have many a story about claws in my leg and arm doctoring what looks like a cuddly kitty. Pussytoes arrived here as a young adult, a stray. They live in the elemnts of the barn so develop nice coats. Some eat better than others. But all still have ferel in their mindsets. {I swear when people come, they often ask where the cats are, as they hide often from strangers.]Pussytoes is a sweetheart though. Low on the pecking order.
