Cat Heart

Yeti and Boghadair are the farm house cats and they are such an Odd Couple. Yeti is a Maine Coon, a large cat twice the height of little Bo, but gentle as a lamb raised at a monastery. Boghadair (Bow-Ya-dare - Scotts gaelic for Archer) was born under the farm stand at Common Sense from a scrappy mother named Smudge and the town's stray Tom, a lanky tabby much like Bogh. Bogh is small but always up for a tug and wrestle. He starts every fight and Yeti doesn't even realize he has claws unless they are stuck in something. One is all fluff and love, the other is all piss and vinegar. They are so different but here they are, nesting together in a heart-shaped tumble by the wood stove. Maybe opposites really do attract?

Pretty babies. Happy New Year! May the road rise to meet you in 2014. (unless you're in danger of falling off a horse at the time)

Opposites may attract -- but woodstoves definitely attract cats!

Opposites may indeed attract... or woodstoves may just attract cats!

Thanks for the recommendation for the book "The Name of the Wind". I'll be looking it up, and if I can get ahold of it in time may join your "book club" :)

Beautiful cats! Cats are so invaluable on a farm. We recently lost our outdoor cat, and I noticed for the first time in years evidence of mice around my animal feed. I always knew she was a great hunter because of the lizards and mice she left on the doorstep, but I never thought about mice since I never saw evidence. Plus she never shared mice with us. I guess they were a delicacy she wanted to keep for herself. A new farm cat is on our list this year.

Such a sweet picture! We have several cats - all of whom are so different in temperament. I love that your two guys of different personalities can manage to feel comfortable enough around one another to make a heart!
