Above is a photo that I shot long before I owned a DSLR camera. It was either shot with a phone camera or with a point-and-shoot camera. We noticed this cat on a farm somewhere near Ratzeburg. The cats of farmers do probably look well fed because they can roam around freely, hunting mice and rats. I am not sure if this is true, but I’ve often heard that they have cats for that exact reason, they don’t want to have mice and rats on their farm. Maybe it’s true, I don’t know.

[ Smiles ] Wow! The farmer’s cat is gorgeous-looking!
And well-fed 🙂 Looks like the boss on the farm 🙂
I think it is true, perhaps not so much that they get cats on purpose but that they allow strays to stay around and keep the rodent population down. I have certainly seen colonies of semi wild cats on farms in documentary programs about cats.
Yeah, I think this is very common… they often have more than one cat roaming around the farm. I’ve seen many in Reinfeld near the farms.
