    Callie the Kitty, under the Weather
    Calico Gal (AKA Callie) deemed to have an excessive thirst lately and, although she has been eating more than usual, she was not gaining weight. Also, her thirst seemed unquenchable, with the to-be-expected results.
    Recognizing the symptoms as those of a human with diabetes, but not sure if a cat has the same symptoms, a call was made to Dr. B’s clinic, and Callie was on her way to the vet.

    Critter Corner
    Callie, The Kitty Adjusting to Move
    Callie, the Kitty, is adjusting to “The Move” (from the south end of the lane to the north end). She goes to the back door when she wants out, but she goes no farther than down the steps, under the small-for-now-porch, down to the east end of the home and, rather hurriedly, back under the porch.
    Conveniently (for her), the strong wind broke out the bottom half of our storm door and she can jump back into the house at will if the main door is open.

    The Lady Longhorns…
    ... are casting coquettish glances and flirtatious tossing of their heads toward neighbor Scott’s pasture, as there are a couple of handsome-looking young male longhorns living there at present.
    The Homestead gals have even been heard vocally expressing their interest in the neighboring longhorn boys, sounding an awful like they are saying that they are in the “mooood” for love.
