    Live On A Farm, Got A Lot Of Cats!

      I live on a dairy farm, and I have about 60 cats.  This was not my choice.  This was the choice of the frisky Tom cats; some of the Tom's were born and raised on the farm, quite a few came for conjugal visits.  Needless to say, there has been a lot of loving.

    I have seven cats right now, but that could change at any moment.  Stray cats have a way of showing up on my doorstep with that sad Puss-in-Boots look in their eyes and I'm a goner.  All I can do is open the door wider and show them the way to the food dish.  After...
