Barn Cat

We've had Passage, our barn cat, since our early days at Aspen Meadows.

She made the move up here with us and quickly settled into the new barn.

I don't have many photos of her because she is always in motion.

When we first got her, she was quite aloof.  Her mother had been a feral cat (dad most likely too), and she wasn't much interested in human company.  But, after we moved up here she became very affectionate.

She follows me into the garden when I'm working there and complains until I take a break from pruning and hold her.  She will let just about anyone hold her now.

She even sits in Brett's lap.  He swears he hates cats, and she hated people -- go figure.  They adore each other now.


  1. That’s an amazing cat who can win the love of a cat hater. ­čśé

    What a funny personality!
    My friend's cat does not like visitors, EVER, but she came and sat on my lap and would not get off (I tried to push her off gently as I am allergic). I let her stay until she felt like getting off, about 30 minutes later. My friend was shocked, but it happens to me a lot. I think that animals know who likes them. ;)


Thanks so much for commenting! I love the conversation.
