If you follow me on social media, you have known the news for a while that we have three cats now living in our studio at our farm. They are Cheddar, Dr. Z, and now Fender. Fender is Dr. Z’s twin. They were the only two kittens born on our farm this spring. When we took Dr. Z in, Fender wanted nothing to do with us, and it took weeks and weeks to convince him that living inside the studio was a lot better than living outside in all kinds of weather. Finally, he moved in at the end of August. While Dr. Z is a black cat, Fender is a solid gray cat. The most surprising part of the adoption is our vet is convinced that Cheddar is Dr. Z and Fender’s biological father! It makes sense to us too because of the timing of when the kittens were born and when we adopted Cheddar and had him neutered. It also makes sense to us based on how quickly the three cats bonded. The kittens are now five months old and will be neutered in December. Cheddar turned two in September. In fact, we blessed Fender on Cheddar’s birthday, September 25th! All three cats are vaccinated and love being the official studio cats on our farm.
Enjoy these pictures of Fender, his twin Dr. Z and his daddy Cheddar.
This Week’s Featured Book!
Set in the fan favorite Amish village of Harvest, Ohio, the latest novel in USA Today bestselling author Amanda Flower’s Amish Matchmaker series brings back the unlikely sleuthing duo of an Amish widow and her zany, thrice divorced best friend. Will appeal to fans of cozy mysteries, small-town mysteries, wholesome romance, and inspirational fiction.
Widowed matchmaker Millie Fisher is anything but lonely between her mischievous goats, her quilting circle—and her habit of solving the odd murder or two . . .
Millie’s decidedly not Amish best friend, Lois Henry, is outspoken, colorful, and so hopelessly romantic, she’s had four husbands. Millie doesn’t judge, and she also doesn’t expect to run into Lois’s most recent ex, gambler Gerome Moorhead, in small-town Harvest, Ohio. With him is the very young, new Mrs. Moorhead, aka “Honeybee.” Lois is outraged, but Millie is completely shocked to learn the next day that Gerome is already a widower . . .
When a large wood carving at the cozy Munich Chalet falls on “Honeybee,” all eyes turn toward Lois. Who else would want a tourist—a complete stranger—dead? And half of Harvest witnessed Lois’s enmity toward the young woman. Suddenly Millie must put aside her sewing needle and flex her sleuthing skills. She’s no stranger to a murder investigation, after all, and if she doesn’t learn who killed Honeybee, Lois could go from Millie’s boisterous best friend to her horrified prison penpal . . .

One thought on “Meet #StudioCatFender!”
Okay, I’ll take the black cat sitting on your lab and the gray one as well, I always wanted a gray one. But hubby would say, we can’t afford to feed them right now. This trying to live without an animal in our home, it keeping me flustrated, I have no one to talk to.
