Our Difficult Cat…Pudgy…

It is hard to believe he was the tamest kitten in the bunch when we first rescued 2 litters of kittens.  Now he is pretty wild and ill mannered.

The weather has been unseasonably warm here in Kansas and when a cold front was schedule to arrive one evening last week Pudgy decided to be difficult and not go in the pool house to be locked up that evening.  I tried several times to get him in.  Randy tried to get him in when he got home late from work that night.  He just wouldn’t go in and since we can’t catch him away from the food bowl he had to spend the night outside.

We hate leaving our cats outside, especially in the cold.  Pudgy left us no choice.

The next morning he greeted Randy at the front door meowing and chatting up a store.  He had made a bad decision and realized it too late.  Granted we have sheep sheds, hay sheds, and whatever else he can get in and by farm standards this is more than sufficient, but not for our little over privileged little kitty. He wanted in his insulated pool house with his 8 foot tall cat tower and cat beds galore.

He had misunderstood what, “Pudgy this is your last chance” meant.

 Funny, he was one of the first ones in the pool house the following night.

He was smart enough not to make the same mistake twice…or at least two nights in a row.  I’m sure he will do it again someday.

Have a wonderful day!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
