  • What kind of cat is this?

  • Cutie keet

    They look like chicks, but these fluffy little day-old birds are really keets, or baby guineas. They will grow up to provide great pest control on the acreage, eating ticks and other bugs out of the grass.

  • Towel, please!

    Lucy Buttercup has a sweet name and a sweet face, but what kind of mischief has she been up to? Maybe she took a dip in the pond, or ran through the sprinkler.

  • Nom nom nom

    When babies are teething, they drool and chew on their fists. When puppies are teething, they chew on shoes and anything else they can get their paws on. When calves are teething, gates do the trick!
