Tomato thief

A few small pear tomatoes were on the counter, freshly washed.

Car-E found them and flipped one onto the floor.

There the tomato turned into a a cat toy.

After Car-E sunk his claws into the tomato he lost interest.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.

Wild cat play time

Car-E attacked me multiple times as I walked through the house. This is his way of getting my attention.

Sometimes he wants me to bring out the lazer pointer for fun cat time. Today he was just wild.

If my day gets too quiet, which it sometimes does, I can count on Car-E and Cruella to shake things up.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.

Kitty, kitty

Cats have been in my life since childhood. This 1987 column tells of a stray cat from the past on Sunnybook Farm.

Issues happened when the expecting stray moved in, but it was the demise of her that sent this family reeling. Listen and find out what happened.

Cats come and go. We thought all was lost when the new mother could no longer take care of her litter.

A solution was found, leaving us with two house cats.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.

Less than a minute with Car-E

A quiet day on the farm so I brought Car-E to join me for my vlog.

One second, he’s purring. The next, Car-E is nibbling on my hand.

Just holding onto my cat can be a chore. He’s a big handful.

Now he’s happily eating his evening meal. Maybe tomorrow he’ll be showing off for the camera again.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.

What Car-E wants

The kids gave me a birthday gift that I wasn’t supposed to open until my B-Day.

From the start, Car-E wanted the ribbon on top of the box, so I hid the gift away in the office.

After my new set of knives was unwrapped, Car-E found the ribbon again.

I’m not saving the ribbon to use it on another package. To keep Car-E safe. I threw it in the garbage.

Car-E continues to look for that fancy packaging ribbon, but he will never find it now.

Until next time, that’s it from Sunnybook Farm.
