Guess who showed up at the barn yesterday? [View all]

He says his name is Thomas, but his friends call him Tommy. I'd say around 8 wks old. We've also had an old tom cat hanging around lately (there's good eats here!) and I suspect Tommy had followed him here. They seem to be on good terms (the other barn cats are skeptical.) No sign of mom or other kittens.

Both have a little white spot on their chests. We've been calling the tom, Spot (score one for originality). Haven't been able to get closer to him than 10 feet, but he's chatty. If he hangs around long enough, I'll trap him and take for neutering/shots. There will be no problem getting Thomas in a crate--he climbs my leg!
