This is actually one of my favorite pictures... as a disclaimer, this isn't me in any of the pictures.. this was one of the other members of "Team Mesha" that was there night and day for 3 weeks.
Mittens is our barn cat and could be found laying across Mesha's back and side on and off throughout the whole day and night.
He along with 2 dogs, 8 other horses, and 3 other cats.. were amazing to watch. While in their stalls they were always facing Mesha and talking to her through wickers on and off throughout the day. The dogs and cats would wander in and out at all times checking on her... and dearest Mittens, very seldom ever left her side.
