I don't know how many cats are around the barn. They're usually very busy.
I've actually seen 8 or 10 of these cats, sitting in a line, all of their heads rotating in unison as they watched a mouse scramble across the alley.
On another occasion we had a feral cat in the barn catch a mouse. And they all gathered in a circle and stared. This poor cat layed down flat, growled and swallowed that whole mouse in one gulp.
And then there's this tough guy.
Been hanging around the barn for *years*. We finally gave up trying to catch him. This cat just amazes me. First seen maybe 3 or 4 years ago, see him hunting all the time and seen him snatch up little rodents and baby rabbits who knows how many times. You can plainly see he's not missing many meals.
Life is good for a barn cat. Mostly short. But good.
