We adopted one this afternoon! His name is Willy, but I think that we are going to change it to Milo. He is 1-2 years old, white with orange tabby patches, and super cute. The lady we have been talking to at the pound thinks that he will be a good barn cat. He is really sweet, loves attention, but he also seems pretty feisty. When we last checked on him, he was laying on our feed bins. I guess he fits in, right? ;) Maybe I can post a picture later.

Here are some pics of Milo! The one in the cage was taken while we were filling out his paperwork. It took ages! The others are him in the tack room.

He looks like a very nice cat.

I would add a bell to that collar so the mice have a sporting chance.

Cute cat! We have a barn cat that adopted US, I thought he was a she since there was nothing manly to see. Took him to the vet for shots and found out Kitty is a he. He's still Kitty - his manly name Gato didn't stick. Anyway, we do not see mice in our barn. Very good Kitty.

Wednesday morning I went to do chores and always throw a handful of catfood in the bowl that we keep up on the seat of my horsedrawn cart (too high for the dogs to knock off and eat it or bother Kitty while he's eating). Kitty had killed a mouse and put it in his bowl! What a crazy thing to do! (I left it I was in a hurry) Told my husband about it, and he said that when Kitty is begging for food and has already been fed, Hubby tells him that he'll give him more food when he sees a mouse in that bowl. Well, Kitty got another handful that night when Hubby did chores!

Awww... Sounds like you have a good kitty, Ladytrails!!Hopefully Milo will like the life of a mouser!! If not, he will probably end up in the bed with me. :P

You do know the purpose of the bell, right? It's to warn the birds & MICE and thwart the cat's attack. In order for that kitty to become a machine of death, he needs to be bell-less, sorry.
