Newest Additions to our Household

No, Ruby hasn't had her calf yet. We heard Carson barking like mad on Saturday. John went out to see what the commotion was and found that he had 'cornered' two very small kittens in the dog run. It seems that someone dumped 4 kittens near our frog pond on Friday nite and they managed to make their way up to the house during the night and into Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, Carson didn't like small animals in his run and since they are way too small to elude him, he disposed of two of them. But the other two managed to get somewhere under the deck that he couldn't go. John and I now have 2 barn cats! Since they were cast away into our yard, we've named them Ginger and MaryAnn. They only weigh about a pound each and are probably somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks old. They currently live on the front porch in the kennel that we got to housetrain Carson. Within a week or so, they will be moved down to the barn. John couldn't resist them and I have to admit, they are adorable.

I think that Ginger and MaryAnn are great names for these two brave and smart kittens ;-). They look so sweet. Hope they'd get along well with Carson and become strong barn cats soon!
