We have barn cats. Very wild barn cats. The boys weren’t even sure what a cat was because they had never really seen one. So we got a couple cats. One of them disappeared 3 days after we brought him home. We think the owl that has been lusting after my chickens got him. We currently have Cat and Bob. In hindsight I should have pressed for different names. These names create a bit of confusion for little boys at the museum when looking at a bobcat….
Cat somehow seems to escape the majority of ‘loving’.
Bob, however, does not.
We even had to test out his swimming abilities! Poor Bob.
He’s mild mannered enough that this same night, he got snuck into the bathtub. At least the water was warm the 2nd time, I guess. I finally had to get after the boys and tell them they absolutely could NOT make him go swimming anymore.
Still, I don’t think that they have life all that bad.
