Do you know how much a titanium hip pin costs for a stupid cat?! That's why he is now in the house. Had he been ten instead of one, I'd've probably had him put to sleep.

As it is, he sleeps at my feet and taps his paw on my face every morning, if I'm not awake by 5:30. Beats listening to some obnoxious alarm clock noise, I guess----------------
Oh gosh haha! Little crazy cat's paw cost her owners $800 O.O

At 7 months old she will be lucky to survive the birth, and any kittens that survive would be lucky too. I speak from experience. I am a kitten raiser with a cat rescue in my area. I take in Queens that are too far along to abort, Queens who already have had their kittens and kittens that are surrendered/found with no mothers. I can't begin to tell you about the number of kittens a year that die even under my care because of disease, birth defects, abandoned by their Queens... The barn owner should look into a spay abortion for her if they invested that much money in her already. (sorry, it's a sore subject for me but there are so many kittens/cats that need homes.)

On a lighter note there is a cat named Parker at my barn who hangs out in the rafters above my stall. I'm always worried that he'll fall in and spook Topaz and get hurt :-/ silly barn cats.

She will be going to the vet in a few days, and he's going to give them his opinion but they really do not want to do a spay abortion unless necessary. She is quite far along too, they did not realize she was pregnant until they felt the kittens moving (she's always been really "plump"). She will probably have a C-section however.

All of the toms that have been hanging around are being caught and neutered, btw.

Oh, I understand the overpopulation issue, I work with a dog rescue myself and "accidents" drive me crazy. My own animals are ALL spayed/neutered and my cats are 100% indoor. If any of the kittens survive, I will probably take one, too.

All of the cats, pigs, chickens, and ducks hang out with Parker He usually enjoys it, unless they don't stop bugging him!

Sounds like she has good barn owners (even if she made it to 7 months unspayed) I'm so used to the rush to get them done once they are 3lbs.

Going back to silly barncats, I have a video somewhere of Parker the cat climbing the divider between the stalls... where did I put it.

Ooh, if you find it please post it!!

They are fantastic, she has been rescued twice over . They saved her from being eaten by a hawk that had gotten all of her siblings, and bottle fed her. The darn thing is still vicious thought , probably from being separated from her mom too young.
The owners completely forgot how young cats can get pregnant . At first, everyone was like "why are all of these cats hanging around?" Then when they figured it out, you should have heard the swears that got thrown around .

Think of it this way . Being kicked by you will be WAY less painful and dangerous than a kick by this horse. When I am working, I have laid the lunge whip across the back of my favorite dog for coming in my work area. I have tried to stomp on cats. Generally, I do not get pestered by pets when I am working as I am very mean to those that can be killed so easily.

Our Great Pyrenees dog got tumbled a couple times by the horses. Now she still comes out to the horses and goes on rides with us, but she knows not to walk close to the horses.

just yesterday my border collie Gracie "she is deaf" snuck past me and into a stall as I was throwing hay. She startled the horse and he ended up stepping on her foot ;( I think she'll be ok but she broke a toe and got cut. It could have been so much worse.. I feel like a terrible dog mom :(
