    My dad went down to the coop and THIS is what he found!

    Not the boy...the kitten [​IMG] 2nd one we found since we lived here! People are dropping them off in our driveway I think. We STILL have the other one LOL Now we say this one will be a "farm cat" well, not so much!

    It's cute until it happens every month and you end up feeding 10 barn cats, spending time rehoming 10 more and constantly having more dropped off on your drive in all kinds of winter weather etc. We even had a CALF dropped off in our pasture last year!!! Had to feed and rehome that one too.
    Sorry to be so bitter, but it's exhausting and expensive taking care of all the dumped animals at my farm.

    Being who I am, I will always feed an animal left behind and rehome it if necessary. That is just me. And my 36 chickens, two turkeys, two goats, two cats and three dogs. 4 chickens, 2 cats and 2 dogs were rescues. Including Tubby who thinks that anyone in the coop is a roo [​IMG]

    I'm like that too deb. I take in whatever is left by us. My parents were always like that as well. They never got upset (from what WE saw anyhow) about it but we did do a lot of rehoming. We will rehome if this happens again but for now it's in our house and really enjoying life. So far no other animals thank goodness. We also have a neighbor who has tons of barn cats. They said if we ever find strays to just bring them over and put them in the bard [​IMG] That was nice.
    Were not sure how long the kitten was in the coop. It was living under the water table and eating the chicken food when my dad found it. It ran and hid but he coaxed it out with some bacon.

    ETA: Before we rehome we would be sure it was neutered or spayed too. That way NO more unwanted pets from that one.

    I live in a little town, a few streets, couple of dozen houses -- and for the life of me I can't figure out why/how they always get dumped at MY house?? It's not like I"m the first house they come to, or even like my house looks all that spectacular for a pet to live here -- frankly, I'd dump them on my neighbor. His house looks like older people who have time and money live there, LOL!

    We buried two of our cats in the last couple of weeks, so by October I'm sure the kitty fairy will send us a new one! THat's usually how it works.

    Although, the neighbor just had a batch of kittens, and it's been a reeeeeeaaaaaallllllly long time since I had a pretty calico . . . . . . . and she's got one [​IMG]

    Kittens are my weakness too by the way.... The puppies were bad enough but if someone dumped a kitten it is mine. MINE I SAY MINE!
