Wink Darn Troublemaking Barn Kittens

Just had to vent a little on those gosh darn little kittens! They cause so much trouble at my stable that its driving me nuts! (even though they are so CUTE!)

Like today. Im just grooming Charm up in the cross- ties, she is half asleep and totally relaxed when out of nowhere one of the little buttheads knocks a bin of stuff that was tacked to the wall on to Charm's back! Well, she reacted like any other horse would and jumped about a foot off the ground in fright and tried looking all around her for the attacker. Ugh.. kittens. Nethertheless all was fine, didn't even spook her that bad that she tried breaking ties (thank goodness she is a good horse).

Another incedent was when we were peacefully riding around in the indoor arena when whoa! A kitten comes scampering through the entry which I didn't bother to close with a plastic bag stuck around its leg! Charm spooks bolts off a little ways. I do a one rein stop and all is better but still can't those kittens just behave?:roll:

Anyone else have those trouble making barn cats or kittens?
If you don't take mine!

Sorry Charmer, but that's funny (I know, someone could get hurt)! For some reason I'm picturing cute fluffy little kittens, that suddenly turn into little devilish gremlins! And no thanks, I think they're quite happy right where they are.......tormenting poor Charm!

Haha! I was thinking the same thing walkamile! Kitty gremlins! None of the kitties at the barns I ride at are that rambunctious. One does like to use the arena as a litter box. Comes right in to the middle of the arena while horses are trotting around, does his business, covers it up with arena sand and walks right out - no big deal. Hilarious!

Lol! No kittens here but my daugter's barn cat is a pain in my butt! I can't get through chores without tripping over him at least once. He sees the indoor as his personal litter box and always when riding. He's a crazy bird hunter and is always walking the rafters and bails on them. Should it ever rain cats I guess my horses won't spook haha!

He has his sweet moments too though and I love him anyway. I forget about falling over him and spilling the grain bucket when I see him sleeping ON the pony :)

Our barn cats don't cause too much trouble until I have to catch them to lock them in each night (we have coyotes in the area once in awhile and a big road near by) sometimes they plain refuse to come or have wandered far enough they can't hear food shaking maybe?

We do have a vicious goat however. She head buts anything that moves when she's in a bad mood, follows you around when she's in heat, poops in our cross-ties (when a horse is in them!) and is just always there and kind of weird....darn goat!

My old boss had a hoard of cats and kittens, friendly but I was always tripping on them. Even knocked over part of a hay bale.

Give these kittens huge cartoonish eyes they well could be gremlins!

At least Im not going crazy in the thought that they are out to get me because it sounds like many of you have the same problem!

Or maybe they are doing us a favor and desensitizing all our horses to bags and kitty poop...

My BO's barn cat Angel is ridiculous! If you are riding the 4wheeler down to the barn she HAS to run RIGHT IN FRONT of you. One time I was taking the 4wheeler down to get toold to finish the leanto and she darted in front of me I swerved so I wouldn't hit her and tipped the 4wheeler over. My BO saw the whole thing and started cracking up.

I hear you! We have the most adorable, cuddly, annoying and trouble making kitten in our barn! He never let's me do barn chores in peace, always meowing to be picked up and attacking the pitch fork or broom. And constantly running UNDER the horses while we are in the arena.

I will share a picture of the little bugger later.
