Meet our barn kittens: Diesel “deece”, Rambo “Rams”, Jude “judey” and wrangler “wrang”.
They were the first “farm animals” I was allowed to get. My husbands only rule was “must be fixed and have their shots”. Long story short, I got the name of a lady, Stephanie, who catches feral kittens and cats and fosters them. She originally had diesel, Rambo and wrangler.. then the day I went to pick them up, she said “we took Rambo to the shelter to see how he would do, because he’s doing well with people. I know someone who has another feral kitten. Would you be willing to take him instead?” Of course, I said yes. He didn’t come with a name.
I looked at his paperwork, and he was born the day I met my friend Heaven, who was a patient at @stjude. If you didn’t know, gold is the color of childhood cancer. I decided to name him Jude. It was meant to be.
A couple days later I got a text from Stephanie. She asked if we could take Rambo (the black kitten) cause he wasn’t doing as good as the thought. Again, I couldn’t help but say yes.
I never thought I’d be able to pet these kittens, let alone hold them. Wrangler (the light gray kitten) is still skittish, but he can be pet if he’s eating. He is starting to run on us when we’re doing chores too.
Diesel and Rambo decided to make the mud room their home when it’s cold outside to sleep by the heaters. Wrangler used to as well, but now he just screams to be let out.
These kittens have come a long way. If I could, I’d have 58385827 of them. They wander all day; and wait by the back door to be fed at night.
