i got a kitten 3 and a half years ago... well we got three but my dog killed the other two... less then a year later him being part wolf and a puppy didnt help. then we got another batch and 2 older cats. and an extra 2 more along the way. then my new puppy killed 4 kittens of the bunch and the two older ones went to the farm down the way and so did my sisters and i have my first kitten and the second kitten of the batchs my dog killed, very sad about the others but glade mine are still here. anyways ive never been a cat person EVER! but my little kitten would hiss at me when she was little and and love her now since being out once she was nutered she hunts and kills mice in the barns and we give her food everyday and water, she has a nice little home in the horse barn near the hay, and she roams the barn for birds and mice got a few pigens that were in the barn and there is no mice in the barn anymore. she doesnt like very much attention and can live on her own for the summer months with very little food from us.
