I'm expecting big things from these two, hoping that they'll keep the mice and moles away from the barn and garden, which, in turn, should decrease the number of snakes in the area as well. Hopefully these two cats will leave the prairie birds alone and they'll stay around the donkeys at night for protection from the coyotes.
If you are wondering about their names and how they got more imaginative names than "Big Cat" and "Little Cat", it is because I named them myself instead of letting Mrs. ProfessorRoush and the kids have a say. Millie just seemed like a "Mildred" and my theory in the seemingly random name is that she may be a reincarnated pioneer soul of the last century. The other choice for naming Moose was "Bubba", and although he seems a little like a "Bubba", the aliteration of "Moose & Millie" was just too good for me to pass up.
