Our future barn cats :)

Here are a few pictures of Bert & Squirt - our future barn cats/mousers
They're 9 weeks old, we adopted them from our local pound when they were only 7 weeks old.

Here they are when they first came home:

And now, they're getting big!

Here's Squirt, and trust me - he is a totally squirt!

And his brother Bert, who I think will be long haired. He's a momma's boy :)

Awww, Bert's so cute!! I love cats with stripes. xD
Good luck with them! I had a cat that would just watch the mice run around, and not kill them. Sure it was funny. But she was meant to be a mouser.

Adorable. Where did you get them? It sounds like they have a good barn life awaiting them

So cute!!! I can't believe the pound let you take kittens for future barn cats. None of the ones in my area will allow you to take a cat if it's going to be a barn cat. Even a pampered one... I end up getting mine from farmers instead.

Aww... how adorable!

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

There is actually a great program that is taking hold in many areas to place barn cats via a feral to barn program. Granted, not the case with these two cuties, but there is a growing recognition of the need for placements for cats that aren't suited for household living and a need by farm-folk for good pest controlling felines, so it's a win-win program.
