Eyes on the world out there... in rural areas, there are many barn cats. They have a refuge that they know; a safe place - and they have the world. It's their world. Barn cats don't ask for much. A little food, an undisturbed shelter. Just enough to get by.
How many of us live like that? We don't ask for much; we just want our home in peace and quiet. If we have shelter and food, we're good. Barn cats are the Zen masters of the cat world.
