we have a new family member- texas the irrisistable kitty! he is our micro-farm cat. we have high hopes for this future cat. namely, taking care of any snakes that might visit in search of eggs. whenever we start getting eggs...but that is a different post. texas is the best kitty i've ever had. he comes when you call him and allows the kids to give him lots of 'love'. we are attempting to feed him a raw food diet (www.pet-grub.com) with the notion that a healthy cat is a flea free cat. we'll see.
moonpie loves her new kitty and has been very responsible in making sure he is fed and watered and has had plenty of time on the slide and swing (with her). buddy, who is so tender by nature, just wants to hug him. the other day i overheard him saying 'wanna come outside wi' me?'. which was so cute coming out of his little not quite 2 years old mouth! i even caught john loving on the cat while reading the newspaper. we are most certainly all smitten kittens!
