The barn cats & Jasmine playing with Bailey's cord. Here we have Madelaine (Jasmine's sister) on the left, then Pete, Finnegan, Bailey (tied), Jasmine and Cleo.
Bailey is an indoor cat because Wes and Sandy lost their last kitty to the road. They live at the bottom of a steep hill and some people don't use much common sense when they come roaring down the hill, so it's a dangerous place for cats to live. When he does go outside Bailey is tied by a long cord to a weight, so he gets a little fresh air, but stays safe.
We did the same while he was with us, and the cats were completely captivated with that cord! It was the funniest thing to watch.
Hey, were'd my people go?
Notice that Bailey has extra toes on all 4 feet. His back feet are huge! He was born in our barn 2 summers ago to Sheba.
The black kitten on the right is Gus, another one of Sheba's kittens from this year's litter.
When afternoon feeding time comes..........
Max thought he should stay and keep Bailey company.
Come on Max, or you'll miss out!
Pepper says, "Bailey, are you coming?"
