Tasty Treat

My grandparents milked the cows morning and evening. Always an audience of interested cats seemed to show up. They both were able to angle a teat in the direction of a cat and shoot fresh milk all over their faces. It was very funny. They also kept a small hubcap in the corner that they filled with milk when they were done. When I was there, I got to run the manual separator in the pantry.

Dairy barn cats

For the first 25 years we were married, my wife's uncle was a dairy farmer in Charlotte County, Virginia (he's now retired). We never had to buy a cat during that time. As our cats aged and died, her uncle always had a new litter of barn cats for our kids to choose from.
