These kittens are not pets. They are--or will be--barn cats. Hobbes, the orange tabby, is spunky and adventurous, friendly and fearless. His half-sister, Nala, is quite the opposite.
Hobbes and Nala
Nala was elusive and it was hard to catch her with the camera. I did get a nice pose below.
It started sprinkling a bit, and afterwards, Nala hopped up on the patio table to lick her way across. It was a great opportunity to capture her.
The spunky Hobbes
Sadly, a few days after these images were taken, Hobbes and Nala disappeared. After a few days, Hobbes came back, skittish and afraid. Nala never returned. Bryan, the farm owner, guessed that they may have had an encounter with a coyote. Hobbes quickly reverted to his playful self, and was joined later by another kitten.
The barn kittens were fun to photograph, but I think Bryan's new house dog (which will become the family pet) is seriously the cutest dog on the planet. Her name is Zoe, and she is a cockapoo. Just look at her with her little biscuit (and blue octopus toy)!
How could anyone resist a face like that? She is simply adorable, and if I were in the market for a pet, I'd take her brother, who was available at the time. In a shout-out to her breeders, visit their Facebook page. Her fur is so soft, she doesn't shed, and she is a smart little puppy. Although I must say, by this time she has probably grown and is not as little anymore!
