Leona and her kitten, who is quite wild and not interested in being picked up or petted, hang around at treat time, just in case they may get a taste. Leona was trying to climb in the box tonight, hoping that if she was there, I am supposing she thought she had a better chance of tasting the treat at least. The kitten, who is female, but hasn't got a name yet, just hides. I think she understands that with those dogs, there is just no chance. The dogs don't hurt the cats, but really have little regard for them.
The farm cats are present to catch mice, not something which I see them doing very often. Smokey, the one who had a litter in the spring and lost all the kittens, likely to the fox, but now has another litter hidden somewhere, is a good mouser. She only comes for food when she is lazy, and otherwise feeds herself and likely her babies. I have no idea where they even are now, and they will be totally wild without any human contact. That is not good because I won't have much luck catching them to give away the males. Inbreeding in cats is not pleasant. Six toes or even ten, missing limbs and worse can result.
Anyhow, the cats are not in for much when the dogs are about and that is pretty much always. I can just hear Ofcharka saying, "Not the cats! My food!"
