The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-COWS!!!! COWS!!!!, Friday, December 2, 2022

Traalalalla—“Let’s go do the chickens with Mom, Boo Berry.”

“Okay, doaky.”

“Bye—I’ve got stuff to do.”

“Not me, I stick to Mom like glue.” Boo Berry Betty replied.

“Works for me.” TLC Cai-Cai hollered as he took off to do whatever it is he liked to do.

“Come on Boo Berry, we’ve got stuff to do.  This is a big day.”

Mom scooped me up, put me in the pick-up with Dad and we headed down to —I don’t know where.  I can’t see out, and I don’t like to look out.

Then we were there.

And so was a big truck and a HUGE truck Mom called a semi.





Shudder and shake

“You stay in here, Girly Girl”, Mom said, as she gave me a kiss on the nose.  “The cows have come!”

Wow! Those are HUGE ANIMALS!


It wasn’t long before we were heading back to the house.

There I met TLC — “HUGE ANIMALS HAVE ARRIVED ON THE FARM!”  I barked at him.

“I know,” he replied.  “Cows, they come this time every year.  We have to be careful around them and not get kicked.”

“I don’t plan on ever being around them,” I expounded to TLC Cai-Cai.  “Those feet are bigger than the both of us!”

“Yep, you are right.  Hey, race ya to the house.  Whoever gets there first gets to get in first!”  TLC took off in a mad dash.

“You can’t beat me!” Boo Berry Betty ran equal to TLC Cai-Cai arriving at the back door at the same time.

“You silly little creatures,” Mom reached down and petted us. “You can’t go in until I open the door.”

As soon as the door was open, TLC ducked under and flew right into the kitchen—Boo Berry right behind him

“What would I do if I didn’t have you crazy cute animals to liven up the day?” Mom laughed as we all tumbled into the kitchen.

“Whew, Boo Berry…thankfully there are no cows in the house!”

“Yes! What a terrible thought that is.  But we are safe in here.”

The corn harvest has started!

Mom says, “We are on our way!”


I can handle it when I am with Mom.  That is about all.

(Oh, By the way—

the cat hides in the house.  At least I’m with Mom!)

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Teasing the Dog, Friday, November 18, 2022

I know!

I know!

The dog is still learning

How to be a



As you well know

I am bigger


And I even weigh


Which means



Just for fun…

I LOVE to tease the dog!

Like  When on a walk

Show her something  Unique

Like the water tube

I run to the tube

Look in the tube


The dog comes over

Looks into the tube

I encourage the dog

To go INTO the tube

She does!

Gullible, you know

Then she comes out

And asked me:

“What was so neat about that?”

“Nothing,” I reply.  “Nothing.”

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Farm Work, November 11, 2022

This is me!  The new way of being ME!


No longer am I afraid out on the farm.

If Mom goes out on the farm

I go out on the farm

Once on the farm, Mom puts me on the ground and I sniff around all over the place. But I always, always, keep myself close to Mom!  ALWAYS!

If we don’t go on the four-wheeler,

Then we walk.


Although I don’t want to walk the whole farm, it’s too big and

I would get tired




That’s Me!

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-FOX! Friday, November 4, 2022

Dad called to Mom —“Your cat is clear out in the alfalfa field.”

Mom went to look and exclaimed, “That isn’t TLC Cai-Cai!  That is a FOX!”

“What!?” Dad jumped up out of his chair and went to the door with Mom. “Yes, it is! A FOX!”

“I think I had better really keep an eye on the chickens.  Must be a ‘new to the farm’ fox and is looking for personal territory.” Mom replied.

Now while all this was going on, Boo Berry Betty and I could have TOLD Mom and Dad about the fox, because —well, after all—we already knew.

There are smells.

And footprints.

And sometimes poop is left for us to know that FOX is here.

Mom thought it would be kinda neat to put up a trail camera to see where the Fox might be hanging out.  She picked the garden spot, because, she said, I, yours truly, TLC Cai-Cai, have been acting rather jumpy whenever I am in the garden spot.

Yep! Like I said I could have told her, but she doesn’t really understand my language.

FOX! Fox in the yard!  Eventually, the fox will move on, but for now, everyone, except those rather dumb birds called chickens, is on high alert!

Mom’s still sick.

She has new medication.  Maybe it will work.

Dad has to do EVERYTHING!!!

Get Well Soon, Mom!

TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry Betty

(P.S. to catch everyone up—I’ve been fighting pneumonia now for 10 days.  They thought about entering me into the hospital, but I voted for staying in my own house.

It’s been very hard to function.  Although, I do have some new (four different drugs) now that have a least given my back my voice—kinda, sorta, not really.  I take them for five days (four more to go) if, at that time, no results I suppose I have to do the hospital route.

Thanks for still hanging in there.  It’s hard to do too much at one time, but I do think of you and hope you are all staying healthy)

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

“I want in—Don’t you TLC Cai-Cai?”


“I want in now!”

“Well, I think you are going to have to wait.” TLC Cai-Cai replied with all the wisdom of a cat.

“Why?  Where is Mom? Where is Dad?”

“Let me look” TLC Cai-Cai responded.  “Inside. Dad is inside.”


“Oh, hush! Mom is out here somewhere.  Dad is inside.  He doesn’t listen when you cry.”


“WOW! What was THAT?!” Mom asked as she came around the corner with her wheelbarrow.

Suddenly Dad was at the back door.

“WHAT was THAT?” We all asked Dad.

“It sounded like a gun!” Mom exclaimed.

“It was—Dove season has begun. And our new neighbors are sighting in their guns.” Dad explained.


“Oh, geez, Get in the house quick, Fur Kids…. guns and little animals don’t mix AT ALL!”

Mom opened the door.

You know the rest of the story—run inside and SCATTER to our favorite places to hide!

P.S. This is the end of SCATTER.  Story Over.  TLC Cai-Cai 😊

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter 11, Friday, October 7, 2022

Mom and I!!!


That’s how I like it.

Mom and I.

Although, I do like The cat!

And I do like being


I don’t like outside

If Mom is Inside and

I am outside.

If something HUGE

shows up

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter 10, Friday, September 30, 2022

I was out and about just enjoying myself

Doing this and that

The dog, our dog—Boo Berry Betty—had come out

Then had gone back in.

I was getting a tad bored


So, I headed to the dirt pile

This is a big pile of dirt Dad keeps for

Repairing the roads, and ditch banks

And stuff like that

So anyway, Out I went

It was warm and sunny

I decided Mouse would taste good

Right about now.




The only thing left for me to do

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai and Boo Berry —SCATTER— Chapter Eight, Friday, September 16, 2022

“Gosh, Boo Berry Betty.  Mom and Dad have been B.U.S.Y!”

“I see that.  They are going here and there and everywhere on the farm, in the yard, just everywhere.”

“Yes, and you have to FAST if you want to get inside and eat something.”

“Or just get inside, it’s HOT out here.”

“Aren’t you glad we are NOT people?  Their work seems so HARD, Boo Berry Betty, we just get to do fun things all the time.”

“Yeh, but—we can’t go in when we want to.”

Why do you worry, you only come outside when you are with Mom?”

“Well, outside is so BIG!  I just like inside better.” Boo Berry Betty replied.

“What are Mom and Dad doing now, TLC Cai-Cai?”

“Gosh, Boo Berry Betty, they SCATTERED!”
