Mikey is one of my two favorite barn cats. He’s a young cat, just a year old. What makes him stand out from the crowd is his size, and his personality. This is a huge barn kitty. Most farm cats are fairly small , as cats go, but Mikey is a giant among cats. He’s a gentle giant, though. Mikey is sweet, loyal, and laid back. In the photo on the left, he’s lying in a feed pan, on his back, and asking me why I woke him. Everyone loves Mikey. Our tenants have a little boy who is afraid of animals, but he loves Mikey and talks about him every day.
I named Mikey after my brother Mike. They share very similar personalities, and they’re both gentle giants. I have to say though, that it’s a mistake naming a pet after a real person. Mikey the cat disappeared for a few days and I was beside myself. He did come back home, but I just felt so badly about Mike’s kitty namesake possibly meeting a terrible fate.
The last picture for today is self-explanatory, Mikey doing what he does best.
