Bert is one of our barn cats. Bert is fat, lazy and does not groom himself.  He does love Alison and she can pick him up and pet him and has started following her around a bit while she does chores.  He is not fond of the rest of the family. 

Ernie is one of our barn cats. He is still feral, but coming around.  He will stay in the feed room with Alison, but he cannot be touched.  He's an excellent hunter, lean, mean and unlike Bert, keeps himself clean.
