I wish him well

Today was my last day to care for my 'country cats'.
It was a calm, quiet day with no wind and the sun shining off and on.
I finished up and bid farewell to Doc, Matrix and Maple.
As I was heading back I looked over to see if the orange tabby-cat might again be sleeping in the barn window. 
Well, he wasn't sleeping but instead having a staring contest with a cow.
I captured their moment from the road.
I hope he has a good life. He does look content to me.
I always worry about barn cats although I do know of some that are well-loved and cared for.

We are to get yet another blast of winter in the next few days.
Are you all worn out yet from this long, cold winter?
I know I am.
I'm seeking out anything that might have a hint of Spring to it.

Stay warm.


  1. The cat and the cow would be well acquainted!

  2. Absolutely beautiful window shot! The cat does look content with his lot...unlike me with winter..I'm so done with it.

  3. AT LEAST mR. BARN CAT IS inside THE BARN! Oh shoot, sorry about the caps lock...I loved the photo (other post) of all the doves on the antenna...too funny.

  4. This is such a great pic. I love how they are both curious about each other.

  5. Great that you captured this photo.
    I am ready for spring!!!

  6. Wonderful photo . I am sure the barn cat has lots of warm spots to snuggle up in there and mice to chase . Starting next Wed the temps are to be in the pluses for us down here and even rain in the forecast sounds like a hint of spring to me ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

  7. What a great photo. I wonder what they were both thinking?

  8. What a wonderful picture. As I observe the interactions of the many animals of varied species that live here I marvel at how it seems a universal need to make contact with each other , even if the contact can be a real threat. Animals & people of all sorts, all kinds, need contact , thrive on it , or decline for the lack.

    A cow & a cat , lovely.

  9. That's a beautiful shot, great timing!

    My newest cat, Tabikat was originally rehomed to be a stable cat. However for some unknown reason he turned up at my place last year, I live 3 miles away from the stables. I'm not sure if he just left or if he cadged a lift. One of life's great mysteries!

  10. I am so over winter this year! We got more snow last night. It just keeps coming down and not melting in between snows. AUGH! So, yes, I am seeking Spring 'anything' anywhere I can find it. Gotta keep the spirits up!!! And that cat/cow picture is adorable!

  11. Those great stones must make the barn cold as a refrigerator! The wee bit of sun through the window must be heaven for our beautiful friend.
    I wish him well too.

  12. What a great picture! I wonder what the cow was thinking?
