Dogs and Cats, Living Together: Kitten Update!

Little Ebenezer is growing fast!

He loves attention, is quick to purr and has become fast friends with our Pocket who thinks he’s a strangely shaped puppy and plays with him accordingly. Eb doesn’t seem to mind getting covered in slobber and often instigates play with a well timed pounce on her nubbin. He’s playful and seems interested in pouncing in general, so i’m hopeful he’ll be a good barn cat. For now, he’s been doing a little too much ‘hanging around’ by the house wanting to cuddle with us – but i supposed that’s nicer than having a crazy mean barn cat you can’t touch without risking skin! Pocket is definitely showing him the ropes when it comes to hunting voles! I hope they’ll make an awesome team.


It’s fun to have a kitty around the farm…. as long as he doesn’t go for any birds on Birdsong Farm. I sure hope he can put a dent in the voles and even the cottontails. My epic hedgerow of sunflowers has been severely damaged by small, biting mouths. Grow up fast, Ebenezer – we need your help!

Have you had barn cats? Were they friendly or totally skittish?

    Our cats are very friendly but they have been raised indoors and handled a lot.

    My roommate adopted kitten recently and my corgi Ziva treats him much the same way as Pocket treats your barn kitty

    I have 4 farm cats to help keep rodents under control, I keep telling them birds are a no no….but the odd bird does get gobbled up sadly.
    They are all friendly having being well handled since birth, just makes for a less stressful time come worming & flea treatment…and the odd trip to the vets.
    Only one of them occasionally saunters indoors but he had more ‘house time’ as a kitten (got him 3rd hand).
    They are about to undergo major upheaval..new puppy at the weekend. I foresee a lot of grumpy cats sitting on flowerpots hissing! Lol.

    automobiles, processed and packaged foods plus more plus more plastic products.
    As energy prices increase and a lot of homeowners become more conscious
    of their carbon footprint, solar energy panels have received renewed interest among consumers.

    However although renewable power options only suitable for
    large scale generation, wind turbines are extremely successful when reduced to a
    size well suited for home wind power and are capable of making a sizable contribution for a household’s
    electricity requirements.
