    Default Pictures of Horses with Cats

    I got a great one this afternoon. I went out into the pasture to scratch the colt while the water tank was filling, and little Ruby insisted on accompanying me. Ruby is the most skittish thing alive and after I trapped her would shake like Wile E. Coyote on earthquake pills, which she continued for weeks. Hands down the most terrified cat I have ever caught. I kept her shut up far longer post spay than most barn cat applicants I'm taming because I knew until some bond was established, she would freak out and bolt. She still after a few years freaks out and bolts at any noise or strange person, but she is quite attached to me, and lately, she's insisted on going out into the pasture with me when I go out to talk to the horses. I chase her back (extremely easy to do; look at this cat wrong, and she jumps) when I'm going to be working them, but she goes along otherwise, still quivering a bit with nerves, staying absolutely glued to my leg, but she could stay outside the pasture, and she wants to stay with me instead.

    The colt is the most friendly, sociable thing alive and thinks the world is just waiting to hand him an invitation to its party. I cannot wait to ride this one down the road. Easiest horse to take a picture of I've ever had, because the ears are ALWAYS up. Without exception. I think he sleeps with them up. No ears available in this shot, but you get a nice view of his wide forehead and narrow muzzle.

    He and Ruby were having a good sniff here. She's tight up against me, but she wasn't running, and he was friendly as ever. Looking at that moment, remembering how far I've come with Ruby and how she now trusts me, was a nice feeling.

    Default Cute pics!

    What a great idea for a thread! Sadly, I will have to live vicariously through all of you who have your horses and cats in the same place.

    I board my my equines, and as much as I would like to introduce my "city-slicker" cats to them, right now it's not such a good idea.

    The closest picture I have is when I had hay in the back of my truck and the kitties got to sit on a bale of hay for the first time. I guess you can call it baby steps!

    These photos are all so cute! I love the one of the cat napping on the saddle pad - on the horse!

    I think the kitten is yelling back to the people in the background.."Guys! Guys!...Someone! Get me off of here!!!"

    I don't have any cats where I am now - but when I was in college, the place I boarded Bluesy had an awesome cat - her and Bluesy were good friends.

    Though his didn't care for it so much when she would bonk her head on his nose for attention...

    If anyone who lives within a reasonable driving distance from northern Delaware would like to offer a home to a barn cat please let me know. Email me at Barnmom45@aol.com and I'll make sure to connect you to the people who do TNR who need to find some of the rescues good homes in barns.

    www.forgottencats.org is the organization that does this and they have too many cats and not enough homes. The cats are all spayed/neutered, tested, vaccinated and ready to go to homes that will care for them, shelter, feed and provide water for them every day.

    Your first photo is my favorite - I loff your horse's mane and especially loff the goats on the picnic table in the background!
