Worlds best cat

I am not a cat lover. Never have been never will be. Have you ever noticed how cats gravitate to the person who detests them the most. I am finding out that cats are a necessary evil when it comes to living in the country. The first year we lived here we battled off the mice but slowly year by year we have been losing ground. Finally we decided it was time to get a cat for the shop. Mostly because the mice were eating the dog food faster then the dogs were. What we needed was a cat that was wild as F***. Our neighbour got word we were looking for wild cats so he trapped one for us. Even though this was a barn cat he wanted him to go to a good home. He trapped the cat and brought it over, set it free in the shop and it was a streak of fur. I never even noticed the color or nothing. Kyle and I set out food and a litter box and checked it weekly. After a couple weeks of seeing no cat and the food still being there. We started to think the cat had just gotten out one of the doors and ran away. In the meantime the neighbour was phoning every week asking how the cat was doing. I responded "It's the perfect cat it's like he is not even here". I had resigned myself to the fact the cat was gone and we just weren't meant to have a cat. We would have to go back to trapping and poisoning the mice. Then about two months into the missing cat saga I went into the shop and was almost knocked down by a fly by cat. Kyle and I were both in shock that the cat could have been there the whole time. A very wise cat friend of mine said he was probably out of food that is why we saw him. Sure enough no food and a full litter box. We had stopped checking after a month of no sightings. I now know where he hides as does the dogs.

Here is a pic of his hiding spot.
If you look close he/she is not very good at hiding half his body sticks out.

If you move the plywood you can see him/her

None to please with being on the blog.

The good news is most of the mice have been dealt with and I think we have a very fat cat.
