Hard Working Felines?

Up here on our hill, everyone has a job. The chickens provide eggs and some pest control, Daddy provides for us, the kiddos go to school and help with chores, Mama cooks and cleans. And the cats. They work hard, too, and I have the proof!
The family meteorologist, checking before the final weather report.

Miller, keeping Mama's purse safe from, ahem, cat burglars.
Merlin, testing the catnip. He's quality control.
Oreo, deftly keeping this "tree" down, cuz ya know,
 sometimes gravity just isn't enough.
Oreo, checking to make sure the bed has been made properly.
Taking a break after laundry folding. Whew, it's tough when you don't have thumbs!
Sorting socks, and keeping them safely paired.
Merlin, warming up a spot on the couch and warming up the blanket.
Keeping the recliner warm. When you're that little, it's a 2 kitten job.
Giving gravity a helping hand, once again. Dining room rugs can be tough to keep down!

Miller checking the family e-mail.

So, as you can see, our kitties are defintely earning their keep. They work hard to keep us a well oiled, homesteading machine!  I just don't know what we would do without them. ;D
Many Blessings,


  1. Wow! They are busy! No wonder they're exhausted! :)

    1. I know! I debated posting this, I didn't want the ASPCA after me for violating their union contract! ;) Thanks for visiting again, Jocelyn. I always look forward to reading your blog.

  2. My cats are similarly "helpful" around my house ;)

    1. Michele, so glad you visited. Are you as thankful as I am for the feline work force?! :D
