Well, I was worried about the new barn cat, Redford, because he hadn't eaten a couple of meals. I'd left out for him. So I set up the wildlife camera in the upstairs barn, and got a photo of this hairy beast:
Exciting, but not quite what I was looking for. However, the next morning, things improved..
HA! Success! Redford came to eat breakfast.
Then of course I saw him again in the afternoon, without the camera, and again today:
What? You can't spot him?
Look for the glowing eyes next to the old toilet!
You can really see his polydactyl front paws here. He is getting braver! He sat there and watched while I put down his food this afternoon.
I sure hope this trend continues. I am dying to pet this cutie.
