This week I would like to talk about some of the other important animals to the alpaca farm.  Like barn cats, barn cats have an important job of keeping the rodent population down.  Not all cats make good barn cats and when you get a good one they are worth their weight in gold.  I have Snickers, a beautiful tortoise cat who hunts like a panther.  She leaves me mice daily, and I reward her with love and treat.
  Not all cats are cut out to be barn cats,  like Scotty,  his belly is so big it nearly drags the ground,  he prefers to lie around in the house than get dirty in the barn.  He did try his hand at hunting the other day.  He brought me his first mouse.   I had to congratulate him, despite the fact that the mouse he “caught” was attached to a mouse trap.  Oh well, nice try Scotty.

  1. It is so nice to have barn cats. We have a torti kitty who was born in our boys' barn. But she's a princess house cat now. My Great Pyrenees seem to think that cats don't belong in the barn so our cats have all been sent to the house. Love them so, wish I wasn't allergic.
