Dec 10 – Feline

With 7 hours of driving to Idaho Equine Hospital and 3 hours of vet time, all I saw was horses and dogs during my day. So, my last resort for a feline was my pile of stuffed animals…dogs, bears…and ONE feline.

I shot this with my Nikon CoolPix in “Soft” mode…I’m not sure that I like the affect or not. I played with the setting on a single subject and it was a nice touch, but I think because the stuffed animals don’t have a sharp edge to them, the “Soft” gets too distorted.

Tat the Cat at the ripe old age of 16 is doing pretty good. He was enjoying the afternoon sunshine today…he also seems to be keeping his sense of humor in his old age~

Cat tales…or should that be tails…

Long story short, The Stranger, who was the February 9 photo, has found a new home after causing much distress to my two barn kitties for two weeks. Yeah!

My two boys, Tigger (February 4 photo) and Teddy (today’s photo), are back to living in the barn…and oh so happy to be together again without the bully Stranger.



It was a happy ending to the Cat tale~

January 9

The Stranger showed up at the horse barn a couple of days ago…much to my dislike. Now, it’s not that I dislike cats, I love my barn cats.

But, It’s taken us months to get the two feral cats we have in the horse barn settled in. Long story short…started with two, one disappeared (coyote or owl bait), got another one, he died of feline leukemia, got a third, everything was perfect…Teddy and Tigger.

Stranger shows up and Tigger (featured on January 4 post) who has been with us from the very beginning is now MIA 😦


This Stranger does have some interesting qualities about him. Not afraid of people or dogs, not sure at all about horses and donkeys, HATES to be crated, and with the tips of his ears looking like they’ve been frost bit, he’s been an outside/barn cat most of his life.

We moved him to the cow/mustang barn and he’s staying there so far.

I’m praying Tigger comes home though~
