I Have Five Cats

I have five cats, which is a few more than intended.

When we moved the farm we had two cats (one of whom has since passed away) and the owners of the farm left their three cats (plus a stray) behind when they moved all. All of those left behind cats have since passed away, but other cats have taken their place.

A feral mother cat had used the old abandoned house as a place to have kittens, we never could manage to catch her but we have managed to catch some of her kittens and tamed them, thus accumulating three more cats.

Several times cats whould show up, hang around for a few weeks, and eventually leave, but one day a tabby cat showed up. He was not convinced to leave by our cats so eventually we set about taming him and kept him too.

We have taken all the cats to the veterinarian to be spayed or neutered.

I want to note that it is illegal to abandon your unwanted pet cat in the country, most farmers just shoot them as few farmers need/want more cats. I certainly do not want more!

The picture of the two cats is my own, these were two of the left behind by the previous owner.

Awww! Your cats are really adorable. :) I have an orange one too.

It was nice of you to take them in.
