What Your Cat REALLY Wants
Okay, okay. I know I rag on cat owners a lot in my cards. Don't tell me this isn't at least a LITTLE true though...

@buddyesd I actually started off with just the two dogs and my minion's fish. Then my parents moved into a retirement village where they had nursing staff 24/7, super awesome, but no pets. My brother lived with them, but then moved into a apartment. Again, no pets. So suddenly, one dog, and three cats needed a home. Since my land is actually zoned as farmland (can you see me farming? ;) that's what's up!) So I threw them all out here. I have a studio that was converted from an old barn that was on the land when I bought it. I told the owner if he'd fix it exactly how I want it, I'd pay extra. (He's a carpenter. Built the house.) It's pretty cool. The outside looks like an old barn, and still has lofts, but the inside is fixed to do what I need it to. The cats love it. They chase mice and leave me alone. :P Nah, they come in when they want. It works out for us. They do have to come in this time of year, though: too hot.

@buddyesd :) My grandparents actually ran a real farm. My dad was one of 15. Now THAT was a farm... Miles of land in Texas. So beautiful. They grew everything. Me? Lol. Not so impressive. I love my land and the space, the quiet. I'm surrounded by desert here, but the valley where I'm at is all agricultural. I couldn't believe it when I moved here. Somehow, in the middle of the Mojave Desert, there's this tiny oasis of farmland. Apparently it's a dried up lake bed. The tiny town I live in is nicknamed "The Fruit Basket", but across the valley people are growing onions, carrots, potatoes, alfalfa, and lettuce on large scales. I started a smaller garden where the previous owner had already cultivated some of the soil, mostly so the kid could do some things for science. He really loved it. So we planted more. I have mostly watermelon (lol I love it!) with varieties of squash, tomatoes, lettuce, and onions. I grow a lot of herbs, but mostly in barrels and such, except my lavender. My front walk is lined in lavender. I have fruit trees scattered around the property. We walk around and gather fruit when it's in season, mostly cherries. Other than that, just random flowers. :) I promise, my farming talents are the least impressive of my skill set. Lol. Speaking of cats, I have a harder time keeping them out of the plants than the dogs.

@buddyesd mmmm, it's my happy place! I ate so much when I was pregnant, you just can't even imagine!!! Oh he really does! He gets on his bike and he's just gone...but never leaves the property, which is all fenced in. My German Shepard stays right by his side so I always feel secure that he's safe. (Ex police dog.) Or he'll decide to climb trees or swim or, I kid you not, pretend he's Ash from Pokemon and just wander the property pretending. He loves it. His friends do, too. I've only just started getting the whole "can they spend the WHOLE night ... And weekend?!" question. It scares me. A lot. Lol.
