MY BLOG WAS FORMERLY KNOWN AS, "STONEY HILL CABIN", BUT WE'VE MOVED TO THE COUNTRY AND I NO LONGER HAVE A BACKYARD CABIN. THIS WONDERFUL OLD HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1919 AND I OFTEN WONDER ABOUT HOW THIS AREA LOOKED BACK THEN. WE'RE JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM THE SMALL TOWN OF LIBERTY AND SINCE WE HOPE THIS WILL BE THE FAMILY GATHERING PLACE, I DECIDED "LIBERTY HOMESTEAD" WOULD BE A FITTING NAME. OUR BIG RED BARN IS NOW A SAFE HAVEN FOR OUR RESCUED CATS AND THEY SEEM TO HAVE ADJUSTED WELL. NEIGHBORS WAVE AS THEY PASS AND WE LOVE WATCHING THE TRACTORS, PLOWS, AND COMBINES ON THE ROADS AND IN THE FIELDS AT PLANTING AND HARVEST TIMES. THIS FEELS LIKE HOME.

ANOTHER JOURNEY NEARLY COMPLETED




Foster kittens are 8 weeks old and climbing all over the place. They now try to sneak out the door of their room when I go inside it. Simon had his head in the doorway yesterday and I had to open it wider to make sure he didn't get caught in it. He suddenly found  himself nose to nose with Baxter, one of the resident adult cats. I was surprised there was no hissing. I simply scooped up Simon and cuddled him as I opened the door and went inside his room. Baxter wasn't the least bit ruffled by meeting the kitten and I suppose the two would have been fine together, but if not, I would have had a hard time gathering Simon since there are lots of hiding spots out there. As it was, all was calm and peaceful and I wanted to keep it that way.
 
All three kittens and the mama cat are just beautiful but that Simon (gray and white) is something else. He's the most adventurous and is always ready to have his picture taken. Sofie is rarely happy to have hers taken, and Dustin, well he tolerates it but usually scampers off as soon as the photo has been snapped. Each has his or her endearing qualities and all are ready for adoption. We have some "forever home" possibilities, but people haven't yet been willing to commit to adopting the kittens. Misty has a forever home lined up though, and for that I'm very grateful. She's a very sweet cat and will be a good companion. 
 CHOW TIME, YUM!
