Barn Cat Expects Good Catnip Harvest

ROLLING FORK, Mississippi – A time to harvest has arrived for Buford, a barn cat who works in the Magnolia State, and he is ready to pounce on a potentially abundant catnip crop. Buford arrived at the barn earlier this year when he signed a contract at the local animal shelter to help his caregivers tend to their farm. His duties include catching mice, sampling the catnip multiple times a day to ensure quality, and taking frequent naps in the loft. “Most farmers wake up once a day and get to work, but I wake up at least 8 or 9 times a day,” Buford commented about his unique level of dedication to his craft. He was later seen sitting on a parked tractor making engine noises.
