It has been two weeks since we last saw our barn cat Mattie. We have finally accepted the fact that she is not coming back. It is hard to not know what happened to her, but that is the way with barn cats sometimes. We all miss her very much.
There is too much work for just one barn cat to accomplish around the property, so later this winter we will need to contemplate getting another barn cat to help Jerry out. But for now we are just going to leave it for a while as we deal with the loss.
