Pet Rescue Area
Penni & I are animal lovers and have a cat rescue area on our property. It is about 1/4 acre surrounded by 10 ft. high fences and covered by netting (netting is new and pics soon). There are also 2 small barns in the enclosure. The cats have access to one barn (via pet doors) and the other is used for storage & supplies. We recently moved in about a dozen chickens and a rooster to help keep down the weeds and bugs. We're also getting about a dozen eggs a day!
