    Hello, my name is Star and I live in SW PA with my husband, my mother, and his mother. We have 9 indoor cats, 2 indoor dogs, and 2 indoor rabbits, as well as a few feral cats we look after outdoors and our ROOSTER! [​IMG]

    The handsomest bestest rooster ever showed up in our yard about four years ago, before I even lived here. He was dropped off or escaped or wandered off or something. Either way, my husband started feeding him, he decided he liked it here and has slowly wriggled himself into our hearts. He wanders around our yard, we feed him, he hangs out in an old unused dog house during the day and sleeps at night in a pine tree. This summer he got very friendly with us, we can now pet and hold him and he will eat out of our hands. We call him Kevin, he is very handsome, and we intend to take care of him the best we can (trying to learn!) and see he has a good life as our dear pet. We were worried about him living outdoors through another winter and the dangers that presents, so we converted a stall in our unused stable into a coop for him.

    We have a lot to learn and I am happy to be here! [​IMG]

    Here is some eye candy for you - he is truly a beautiful creature and I am so glad he came to stay with us!
