Healthy looking mouse catchers Argee.

When my grandparents had a farm, the cats seem to circulate around from the neighboring farms. They tended to go wherever the food was the best. Sometimes we would have and extra one or two for a few days. Other times several would be missing for a few days and we'd see them next door. The good part was they where self replenishing. We'd find a litter of new ones in the straw on a regular basis. They were apparently getting more than just food while at the neighbors. :D

Mark,

My grandparents also had many farm cats. Only one was allowed in the house. I have a vivid memory from when I was a kid of a very large tomcat who would occasionally emerge from a wooded area where a creek was. He was a huge tanned short-hair with a head the size of a softball. One ear was permanently bent down and he had numerous scars. He was extremely skittish and you could not get close to him.

I wish I could have taken a picture of the old warrior. :)

Heavens No:eek: These guys have a specific purpose, to catch and eat mice as part of their dietary supplement. I got them because I opened the drawer of my toolbox last winter and I was confronted by a family of disgruntled mice. Disgruntled because I had opened the door and disturbed their happy home...Needless to say as I evicted them, I vowed to get me a couple of cats to keep the playing field even.:D
