We have lots and lots of cats.
And we’ve got them in every shape, size, pattern and color. Especially Fall colors…which is rather odd. But then again, our cats tend to be rather odd.
My cat is the Mother Ship. She’s a medium long-hair tortoiseshell – snowy white on her bottom half and large gorgeous patches of orange and black on top. We have a big ginger male the boys appropriately named Cheese Puff, a black and orange stripey female, two black kittens, and an adorable black and white kitten who looks like Eddie Munster of the classic Munster’s tv sitcom, plus an odd assortment of other random cats…which all seem to get named after the boy’s favorite foods.
And they LIKE mice, but not in the same way this cat likes mice. Consequently, we don’t (currently) have a mouse problem.
The chickens. Our chickens run the gamut of the fall color palette, too. I’m not quite sure how that happened, but our cats and chickens match.
That presents us with a technical difficulty: Marla. Marla doesn’t match. We either need a new dog, or we need to paint her orange.
I don’t think that would bother the cats one little bit.
