Once upon a time, a kitten named Tess lived in a barn just like this one with her mama and four siblings. ￼She was a barn cat.￼
She wasn’t the cutest kitten in the litter and when the owners put a few kittens in a box to show the couple who was coming by to adopt￼, they left Tess out.￼
The couple came into the barn and coo’d at the￼ balls of fur in the box but they weren’t sure which of them to take home.
Just then, Tess ran out from the shadows and over the man’s feet.￼ He bent down and scooped her up. “This one,” he said, beaming.￼
And that is how our Tess came to live with us, 20 years ago.
She’s been gone five years but we still miss her every single day. ￼RIP dear one. ￼❤️
And as you can see, she adapted outside the barn very well! ❤️￼
