Cats are glorious creatures who must on no accounts be underestimated...Their eyes are fathomless depths of cat-world mysteries.
- Lesley Anne Ivory

roamed around the fringes of our farm as a wild tomcat. Then one day he decided to adopt us and our farm as his home (even if it meant he would have to be neutered!)

Planet roaming on the fringes.


Planet likes to be right in the middle of every thing we do, and attacks our feet as we walk by him. He helps us feed the cows and work in the garden or the barn. He even helped us build a snowman once and sat on it's head and supervised as we made the finishing touches! Planet will leap up onto us when we are least expected so that he can be cradled in our arms like a big baby. His meows are like the soft hoot of a distant horned owl. Occasionally Planet likes to pick fights with the other cats, especially the other black cats, hence one of his nicknames is "Taliplan" (Taliban)! His other nicknames are "Tally", "Planny", and "Goofy".

Planet has a gorgeous black coat. In the winter he looks like a miniature Newfoundland dog!
