I Are Barn Kitten - How to be a Barn Kitten by Robin

I Are Barn Kitty

Robin Introducing Himself

Introducing Robin

My name is Robin and I are the Barn Kitten at Pine Grove Stable, you may have heard about me cuz I wuz the kitty that snuck into the barn for my brekky at the end of June 2012. U all will has to excuze my writing it is ver hrd fur a kittie. I thinc I wull ask dad to hlp me.

Hi, I am Stephen Parkin Robin's adoptive father and he has asked me to explain what he is trying to do here. He heard that I was a lensmaster on Squidoo and wanted to make a lens to explain to all the other kittens how to be a barn kitten like him. He says it is very important for all kittens that like reading on the Internet to have their own lenses to read whilst sat on Mum's or Dad's lap. He says that the lens could be interesting for humans who want to learn about how cat's think too!

All photographs were taken by me or my wife with a Canon Digital Rebel XSi.

    I loved your lens. I can't think of a kitty I've ever seen that I haven't wanted to take home. I do have Mozart and he's not real keen on having another one around to take my attention away from him.

    This is adorable! Reminds me of my friend gardin kitty, who belongs to my neighbours. Gardin kitty helps me hoe my beans by jumping on the hoe and climbing my bean tepees, and climbs up all the trees to keep watch for dangers while I try and prune them. Lovely lens.

    @WriterJanis2: Robin is a male cat although it is often hard to tell them apart as kittens. On Robin the Barn Kitten we have a video made by a vet that shows you how to tell. My best friend mis-sexed his first two cats! It is easily done.

    I like Robin's lens, he is a cool cat. I don't own any cats, but, I have about a dozen of them that hang out around my pool, they use my lounge chairs and stay out of the sun under my umbrellas; they think i'm running a vacation resort!

    Oh, Robin is so cute! We were adopted by a kitten last summer and she has melted our hearts with her cuteness. She loves to be outside, but knows how to get in the kitty door, if necessary. Our other cats adore her too.
