It was time to consider kitties for our barn area. When we moved to our place there were actually three red tabbies on the property. The only information we had about them was their names which we eventually changed to Tiger, B.H. (short for Brave-Heart as he bravely welcomed us with friendly walks in and out of our legs) and Red. These three were truly feral cats and after a year it was only B.H. that stayed near our property on a regular basis. Sadly, we found him lifeless one rainy morning in June. We quickly learned just what a great barn kitty he had been when field mice made their way into the chicken feed almost immediately. We set traps, caught mice and decided barn cats were worth consideration!Juaquin quickly learned to navigate the Denton Animal Shelter website and kept an eye out for barn kitties. It wasn’t long before he spotted some and we went to checkout these kittens. We did our homework, read about relocating kittens into a barn and designated a stall to be the new kitty pad. Once old enough to roam outside we will bring them into the barn each night.
We adopted two grey tabby brothers that we have named Prince (AKA: Willie Nillie) and Kelly Elliott. Juaquin also brought along a black manx cat that we named Boo.
Shortened tails are a natural occurrence in manx cats

They are settling nicely in their new home and have even managed to ‘nab’ two mice since taking up post in the barn. Good Kitties!!
