Barn cats earn their keep on most farmsteads.
Here a dark calico cat,
looks down the driveway with alarm
as I stop to capture the attractive red barn
on this farm near Steptoe Butte
in the Palouse region of southeastern Washington state.
She looked like she would flee if I took just one step closer.

When I was a kid we always had barn cats,
which we loved and cared for.
My sister though,
somehow managed to get past the ‘no pets in the house’ rule,
and got her cat to become the only one who came indoors.
He was a big fluffy orange cat,
