So we've acquired yet another critter to the farm. We now have a "barn" cat. Well, except...we don't actually have a barn yet so I guess she's just a yard cat for now.
Say hello to Juice...
Before you ask, we didn't name her. Come to think of it, we didn't name our inside cat, Sushi, either. Both cats have come to us though our respective siblings. Sushi came to us 4 years ago from Paul's brother. Juice has come to us from my sister, who recently moved several states away and didn't think the cat would take that move well, so she moved the cat to us.
Juice was not amused by this either at first. She spent the first 3 weeks at our place in a a big crate so she would learn this was her new home and to give Paul time to build her a proper shelter. He was actually able to put something together for her out of some scrap materials we had laying around.
Hey pretty nice looking...um...cat house!
Ok, that is in no way a reflection on her reputation! Thankfully, she is already spayed! But what am I supposed to call it? We have a dog house for the dogs!
Anyway, she's been free to roam for a few days now and seems be adjusting reasonably well. Unlike Sushi, who's only job is to be soft and cuddly, we are actually expecting Juice to be a productive resident of the farm. We're hoping she can help us keep the mice population down around here...without deciding that the chickens or rabbits look delicious too!...
