It was super hot the other day, but that did not stop the kittens and goat kids from a game of Musical stumps. It amazes me how similar they are in many ways, sweetly comical and they all have great balance and love attention. No wonder the kittens and goats are enjoying each other as playmates! At first, I was worried about taking on 3 kittens in addition to all the other creatures we care for. Now I can't imagine the farm without them!
The backstory: A couple weeks ago we adopted a trio of kitten boys to be barn cats. Their mama was a feral cat. They were born in a pile of insulation and when they were found, their eyes were all shut due to the irritation. One of our very kind friends was their foster mama for an organization called Community Cat Advocates in Maine. They are so precious, we are calling them Bob (the one with no tail of course) George and Ed. They spent the day exploring and met our barn cat Virginia, all the goat kids, and the chickens. It is amazing how brave they are for little furballs! They will enjoy fresh goat milk for breakfast each morning as they get stronger and settle in!
