Stray cats? I don't think so...

Yesterday, a friend sent me a text that included this adorable picture of her new tabby kitten. Friends are always posting the stray pets they've recently acquired.

And there's kids idea of a stray pet as you can see from the pictures below run along the lines of a tad different scale.

My kids love all kinds of animals. We've had chicken, ducks, quail, turkeys, rabbits, goats, sheep.

Now it's time to introduce you to our latest addition.

Meet "Root Beer". "Root Beer Pulled Pork" to be precise, a wild boar.

By far, the most awesome was Buck the Barbados Sheep.

My favorite, however, was the fainting goats: Stinky, June, Jenny, and the twins Tinkerbell as seen with my granddaughter and Tiger Lily as seen with my grandson.

And that's not including the deer, bobcats, and bears that like to wander across our property. We've had a few harrowing incidents in the past, that's for sure.

I love living in the forest, the peace and quiet, the trees, the animals...I guess that's why these strays don't seem to bother me, well all except for the turkey...never about messy!

That said...what's the coolest stray you've ever run across? I'd love to hear about it.

Have a great day.

    We had a snake in our house once... We think it came to eat the mice.

    Now we have a huntress cat who makes sure we have no mice.

    What a fun post, Deb. Great work you are doing. I have taken on ducklings and goslings, but mostly stick to kitties and dogs.

    Beth, what's funny is these are animals I never gave a thought to before...but I really do love the goats...the funniest little personalities I've ever seen!

    I wished to live on a farm for most of my life. Wanted a horse soooo bad. Great post!
