A Tribute to Genevieve and Groenemeyer


One year ago, I think around the sixth of October, my mom came back from Germany and we went and got two new cats for the barn; a second try, after the first kitten died (got hunted or something). We tried REALLY hard with these new cats. We kept them inside the barn for I think 2 or 3 months-they never set a foot outside. That was hard work, locking them up so Daisy could come in, etc...then we let them out for the first time. Since then,(many animals including but not limited to chipmunks, moles, birds, frogs, etc, have been killed) every single night they have meandered back home to get their canned food and get locked up in the barn. Genevieve will normally be there first and then after about 20 minutes of on-and-off calling, Groenemeyer comes, too. They're the sweetest cats on the face of the Earth. The first two days that we had them, they hid underneath the tack room floor and wouldn't come out...well, Groenemeyer would come out for canned food, the little pig, but Genny was still afraid of us. She used to shake when you'd pick her up. Not anymore! She purrs just as much as her brother. They're both just a little over a year now, and I thank God for them everyday. They're so wonderful. Anyway, this is so cheesy, here are some pictures....recent and old...

In case you're interested, some old cat-posts:

That would make my chickens a year old, too! Gah!

Those two kitties of yours sure are adorable...then and now.

You've done really good by them :)

Melli...do you know of someone who would take Oreo from us? We cannot find anyone here and he is depressed and needs a companion.Somewhere where he could enjoy his retirement still with other old buddies.We cannot keep him another winter on our property and I'd rather trailer him somewhere , even NY...but it looks like we have to put him down otherwise....sigh....

Dunja said...

I am not implying you....just checking....maybe someone with a farm or so....just a thought that came across my mind

Hallo, Dunja,

I'll check around. It would be really sad if you put Oreo down just because you can't find a home. Have you tried to put him up on Craigslist.com? Also, would you pay for the trailering fee?

What a nice post!! The barn cats are really THE BEST! I am also very happy that we found them and that they are so much fun to be around with. The look great and they have such a friendly personality. And you take so good care of them!
