Cats and Goats - Who Rules the Farm?

As you know the Farm has both cats and goats. You have met the Farm cats through the various Intermews that I have done with Fred, Stinky and Pumpkin. You also know that sometimes I have been know to butt the cats. I am not proud of this but I am working on it; I have to admit that it is fun to butt the Farm cats. I am not proud of that either but I am an honest goat.

What you don't know is how the rest of the goats get along with the cats. You have seen the photo of how Stinky feels about Michael. But given that we goats roam around grazing and the cats roam around doing whatever it is that cats do we sometimes run into each other. How do you think THAT goes? Hmmmm....

You will note that it is mostly Stinky involved in these interactions. One has to wonder about that; Stinky is either friendlier than the other cats or stupider.

Here Luke finds Stinky while he is grazing by the barn. I don't think Stinky looks too happy. I think she looks about to bolt.

Kevin, as you know, is an intrepid explorer. One day he and Stinky did a little pas de deux in the field.

It was Kevin's first time meeting a cat and I think he might have been a little afraid.

He maaaed for me and I uh, chased Stinky away. Politely of course!

Jillian and Mallory met up with our visitor cat Tango. The publicist didn't get it on film but Tango went for a little uhm, flight after this meeting. Tango now gives Jillian and Mallory a wide berth.

So you can see that things are exciting here on the Farm and contrary to popular belief cats can fly....

...with a little help from a goat.

  1. That's great! "Cats can fly..."


    Your goats are so pretty. What colorful markings. Yours (Pricilla) are the nicest.

  2. You are such a good writer! you make everything funny.

  3. Hahahaa! Goats that make cats fly. My kids want to come live on your farm. You could seriously be the next James Herriot (All Creatures Great and Small). These posts are worthy of a book.

  4. I agree with the Herriot thing. I love hearing about all of the escapades of the farm!

  5. I don't blame Kevin for being wary of that cat!! Good thing you were close by to help him out!!

    About your question we live in a small town - less than 300 people and my husbands parents live next door... So Grandpa watches the doggies when we get to sneak away!

  6. the poor cat. Is he alright? I love the baby goat and the cat pictures.

  7. Carolyn - thank you for all of your compliments. The male person thinks I am the prettiest goat too.

    Cici - thank you. I try to do a good job when I write for the blog.

    D'Anna - heh heh. There is plenty of room here. As long as they know they would have to hoe out the barn.....

    princesssparkle - why thank you very much! It is making me feel very good today to hear all of these nice things about my goat blog.

    SL- I am a good mom. With Kevin I have to be vigilent 'cause he is always into something! I am glad your inlaws are there for you.

    John - Tango was fine. He comes everyday to mooch some food. He just knows now to stay away from Mallory and Jillian. And, well me

  8. I love the story and yes cat's do fly with the help of dogs also. They don't seem to have a sense of humor about that. Love the blog

  9. I just love Kevin. Keep the cute pictures coming!

  10. What funny adventures!
    I used to have a donkey named Sammy that LOVED to terrorize our cat. What is it about cats?.....
    Best to you

  11. D'Anna is SO right!! You should consider a childrens book/s based on your blogs around the farm animals. These pictures are all gorgeous. You manage to get such amazing shots!! The haunted house story still sticks out to me the most! I love all your stories, and especially since we share farm animals in common. Bye for now pretty Priscilla and all the pretty goats and kitties.


Maaaaaa away....
