Thought I would share this with all of you. A year ago this May I got a cat from a shelter. Huge-20lbs, the most lovable monster I have ever had. I guess his owner had two cats and was moving and could not take them with her. They were not close so did not matter if they went together or not and I was not even looking for a cat but there was something about him. I took him home. The shelter told me he was an inside cat but was not declawed. I told them I had a small farm and all my cats were in and out. After he got used to the house I started bringing him out back to the barn and you could tell he was in awe. He was even amazed at bugs. It was sad in a way but I knew he was going to have a new lease on life and he is just such a wonderful cat, very dog-like. I could go on forever about him but to make a long story short this morning went I went out to feed everyone and what did I find but a dead baby possum in the grass near the chicken coops! He LOVES the chickens and hangs out with them all day. It is so funny to watch, he lays in the grass and they are all around him. I know this cat think he dies and went to cat heaven. But what has amazed me is that he has learned to protect his flock....lol My other two old cats slept in last night so I know it was him. My shelter cat is the best.
