Siesta (by big andrei) The cat or dog etc do not care how rich or poor you are or do they care how good or bad housekeeper you are! A cat only wants a warm body to curl up when it is cold at night and some kitty acceptable food. Our first cat only wanted cat food but our cat now, who was picked up off the street and we adopted loves to get little bits of human food and by the way he flirts with us to get a scrap I would say he did well on the street!

We have our own way of moving cows in the South. First you blow the horn on the old jeep, then yell, "Come on girls! Come onnnn" and they will follow you anywhere. Call your lead cow by name and she will call the others . "Alright Tess, bring em on".
