This post is for Diane. Yes, we keep the kittens - all of them. All of the cats except the 2 in front are from this year's litters. But cats, like every other animal on our ranch, work for their keep. We care for them, but we keep them for rodent control. Needless to say, we don't have many problems! This year was a prolific years for litters of kittens, and we have a over abundance of kitties, but due to the nature of living on a ranch, their numbers vary from year to year.
