The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Farm Life Series I, Weather, Weather, Weather, Friday, January 14, 2022

One thing I’ve learned in my FULL YEAR of being alive…is outside is FULL of WEATHER!!!

I see it every day…sometimes it’s wonderful, sometimes not wonderful.

My perfect day of weather —is soft and a little on the cool/cold side. When it’s like that I think outside is BEAUTIFUL!

Other times it’s, well, AWFUL!   There is wind—I detest wind,

there is rain…it’s the worst,

there is snow…I can do snow if it doesn’t melt on my fur, but the most horrid of all-weather is

HOT!  I spend all my time panting just like Black Beauty Dog!


BUT I can be outside (I LOVE OUTSIDE) much, much longer than in winter when the days seem very short!

So, for this wee series, I am going to tell you about the weather, here on the farm,

and how Mom, Dad, and I deal with it!

The Secret Language of Winter —- Monday, January 10, 2022

Sunlight….the medium of the Winter’s secret language

The days growing longer, staying lighter

Make our hearts fill with hope

Golden light creates a shadow of our pick-up as we head to town

The early morning sunlight, lighting TLC Cai-Cai and me as we go about our morning chores.

Winter’s Magic—-Light.

From my world to your heart,


Happy New Year—May 2022 be The Year for You, Friday and Saturday, December 31, 2021 and January 1, 2022

From all of us,

Terry, Linda, and TLC Cai-Cai

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Winter Arrived, Friday, December 17, 2021


There is nothing to really do when it’s terribly cold.


There are some BIG! SCARY! THINGS on MY FARM!

They scare me so much I growl at them and run to the house!


I’m ready to come in.

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Dad is Driving a Big Scary THING, Friday, November 26, 2021

I was just minding my business—

you know, checking out the farmyard

Looking for mice

Chasing a bird or 60

When Dad came out,

got into that big THING that makes lots of noise

And headed to my CORNFIELD

Everything is TERRIBLY SCARY right now!

The field next to our long farm lane has a


Totally and

completely SCARY!

I’m having a very hard time staying outside!

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Leaves, Friday, November 12, 2021

The leaves fell off the big tree in the yard

And I loved it

I ran and jumped and had a blast in the yard

Then Mom came along and took all the leaves away


But I do like the grass, I like to lay in it and roll around

So, I guess it all works out!

Life at Eleven Months Old—Chapter Five, I Am Not a Fan of Rain Days, November 5, 2021

It rained.

Sure, did put a crimp in my style.

I tried to go out and cruise around the farm

But it was just too wet.

You have to know if it’s raining: I get wet

If it’s raining the weeds get wet

So, I get even wetter!

I have a hard time being inside. I go STIR CRAZY.  That’s what Mom says.

When I’m stirring crazy, I climb the drapes and sharped my claws on the furniture, and I run as fast as my legs will carry me all over the house.

In a frenzy.

So, Mom, says…” Okay, TLC Cai-Cai, you can go outside, but it IS wet.”

Mom opens the door and I Dash out.  Wet or not I’m going OUTSIDE!

Just so you know…I have figured out a place to stay if it is too WET….

I stay in the hen house, while the hens go out and scratch around in their pen.

Works for me.

And sometimes I can catch a mouse in there.
