Most of you who follow me on Facebook or Instagram know that I have two kittens living amongst my flock of chickens. It was a logical place for them to go as the tack shed is kind of far away and not yet equipped for two barn cats. I didn’t know if they would get along, just hoped that since most of the chickens were larger than the kittens at the time, they would learn to coexist peacefully. I wasn’t prepared for the amazing relationships that have formed.
I have been attempting to document my adorable critters and hope you enjoy my compilation of photos thus far. I think this is proof that differences really make no difference at all.
The day the kittens moved into the coop
Sake learned the hard way that the ladies don’t like to be bothered whilst laying
Eventually Sushi became curious and started to like these “chicken” things very much
Sushi and Pearl adventuring
Stella, Sushi and Beatrix my roo
Everyone loves oatmeal time
As Sushi gets bigger, his body rubs are a little more intense
Hanging with the boys
The day the littles moved into the coop, Sushi and Trudy meet
Much easier to steal the babies oatmeal
Agatha and Sake
One of my favorite times of the day, lap time!
Sushi and Izzie
Sometimes they gang up on me
But mostly they just play
And rarely sit still
And the kittens make every attempt to make it seem like they weren’t just two cuddle puddles in the middle of that pile one second ago… I’ll capture it one of these days
Loving this farm life of mine…
