    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.
