Today while cleaning the barn I discovered 3 little kittens hidden in the old feeding trough in the NW corner. I was so excited that our barn cat, Tessa, had her kittens and I coudn't wait to show the kids. But then Tessa appeared in front of me and still looked fat as ever! I even picked her up and gave her belly a close look and it was definitely still swollen. Doug Nuttleman stopped over later and, still perplexed, I asked him to take a look at her, but in one second he says, "That cat ain't nursin' nothin', she's still pregnant!" At that point I had to accept that ANOTHER cat, that we thought was a boy all this time, had recently birthed kittens in the barn! Tessa is due sometime next week.
