HOMESTEAD BACKLOG UPDATE (10) THE CAT

in #homestead2 months ago (edited)

WE LIVE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WOODS

Literally...we live off an old country road, about a half mile back in the woods. Instead of an electric company, we have solar...instead of city water, we have a spring...and instead of a driveway, we have a little dirt path we walk to get to our cabin.

This is the forest we live in. But, you may be asking, what does all of this have to do with a cat. Well in the woods, also live mice moles Chipmunks and other things that can make life difficult for a homesteader.

So, recently I went in search of a good mouser. I needed a cat that would not be fat and lazy but that would be active and catch all the rodents running around my place.

Enter Prince Alexandria Godzilla the Magnificent!!! He is the most wonderful cat! He was given to us for free from my cousin Jeff who has been absolutely fundamental and helping us get our homestead established.

*Here he is with his first catch! A mole.

I have never been a big cat person and have always preferred dogs, buuut......

He is the best smuggler ever!!!!

He is actually an outside cat, but I let him in from time to time because he's so sweet and I like hanging out with him.

I hope he will be around for a long time. I love him so much.



Thanks for taking time from your day to hang with us for a while. And guess what....after our recent lose of chickens, we have been lucky enough to find a new flock.

We just went and picked them up yesterday so an update about all that will be coming later.
