This still doesn’t make me a cat person….

by Janie Jones

On account of the critter problem down on the farm, last June I bought Leif and the Spud a barn cat.  Okay now everyone coo and awww at the adorable little kitten:

He’s got no tail, which I’m told makes him a Manx. Naturally he needed a Scottish name and so he was promptly dubbed Duncan.  Apparently he’s earning his keep.  He’s caught several small rodents in the past few weeks.  It’s not quite so cute though when he leaves partially digested and regurgitated rodent carcasses all over the front porch.

Now if only I could get him to catch the ginormous wolf spiders we get in the house….

  1. You might have to wait until he’s at least the size of the spiders before he becomes Great White Hunter.

  2. Cats are one of those critters that are affectionate, when they want it, but find you tasty, if you die and they’re locked in the house with nothing else to eat.
