This past week we were happy to welcome two new members of our homestead. Meet Little Sadie and The Sundance Kitten. They are a rowdy pair of dilute calico sisters who take their job of house mouse patrol very seriously. A shelter had adopted them out as small kittens to an elderly couple, but when the husband recently passed they went back to the shelter and were in need of a new home. Since Della Mae the house cat disappeared in August, the house had been feeling very empty of cats and full of mice, so this was a perfect arrangement for everyone involved. They already took out a mouse within the first few days of being here and discovered the best spot to curl up in our house, right in front of the woodstove.
Here's to rowdy cat shenanigans and no more mice!
