Yesterday evening I picked up 2 farm kittens as we are expecting to need assistance with keeping the mice under control. One is a boy, dark grey/black and white, his name is Flash and is very tame and loveable. The second kitten is a girl and is lighter grey tabby with white, her new name (she didn't have one before) is Houdini.
Last night we had both kittens in a makeshift containment system until we can work on building our cat house this weekend. Well when Chad got home this afternoon he checked on both of them to make sure they were ok. He put them back in and went out to work on the weeds. Well I got home about 8, I went to check on the kittens and only Flash would come out. About that time Chad came home and we took apart the makeshift shelter and couldn't find Houdini. There was no way she could have gotten out of it, there were no holes big enough for her to get out. Well after looking around for about 45 minutes we start to hear a meowing in some of the long grass not too far from the house. We found little Houdini in the long grass. We rearranged the containment system, they are actually in one of Ladie's kennels right now with a peice of wood for a roof in case it rains again.
So now her name is Houdini...not sure how she did it, but at least she didn't go too far and will need to be more careful with her from now on.
I promise pictures of the kitties and the house stuff this weekend.
