It’s not secret that we’re cat lovers here at Chiot’s Run (at least I am, perhaps I shouldn’t lump Mr Chiots into the “crazy cat lady” group with me). If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know that we have indoor cats and outdoor cats and have a soft spot in our hearts for these furry friends.
We have Soafie (gray) and Samson (orange), which are brother and sister that we rescued 6-7 years ago from a feral cat rescue in Cincinnati, OH. They’re indoor cats that have never lived outdoors. Soafie is the princess and rules over all the other pets in the house. Samson is the quintessential orange cat, a lover that can never have too much attention.
Dexter showed up on our doorstep two years ago in November. After unsuccessfully trying to find his owners, we had him fixed and welcomed him into the family. He quickly found a place in our hearts, he’s a chatty fat cat with a personality as big as he is.
The newest additions to our growing list of furry friends are the garage cats of course. If you remember, we had a feral cat coming around last winter. We started feeding her because she was looking a little scrawny and a little rough around the edges.
This summer she moved her kittens into our garage and was coined “Miss Mama”. After a series of unfortunate events, only one survived. She was coined “Little Softie” and has been a great addition to the gardens. It sure is fun watching her scamper around chasing leaves and acorns. Here she’s eating the bone meal I made for my garlic.
Cats definitely bring much joy into our lives. Lucy does as well of course, after all she’s the namesake of the garden, but I’m more of a cat person than a dog person. Besides, Lucy can have her own Friday Favorite some day.
Some day we hope to have a larger piece of land so we can add some chickens, sheep, perhaps a donkey and maybe even my dream pet, a Scottish Highland cow. Until then we’ll practice with all the cats.
