Kitty mama

Kitty mama! This is Buddy watching over and “mothering” the kittens in the barn last summer. He bathed them, guarded them and played with them!

Pictured above is Buddy “mothering” as he did all summer. We have a stray cat in the shed that the girls have named “Kitty Kitty”. Along those lines, we should have named Buddy “Kitty Momma”. After Kitty Kitty gave birth to the kittens, Buddy would lay out here watching them for hours at a time. If the kittens came out of the barn and wandered too far away, he would bark at them and they would come back up to the barn. It was during this time that we decided Buddy is part cat!
