Anyone want to guess how the farm cat “Sweety” got her name?


About jheem

I grew up on a diversified dairy farm in southeast South Dakota where I learned how to throw a hay bale, pull a calf, deal with death, and "name" the cows. I was in 4H and FFA, and was privileged to serve as a state FFA officer. In college, I studied animal science, focusing on beef cows, mostly because I figured they were less work than dairy cows....I ended up with a Masters Degree in ruminant nutrition and went to work for the University of Nebraska, first as a research tech coordinating data collection for a swine unit and beef feedlot on a research farm and then as an extension educator. In my current job, I focus on environmental issues related to animal agriculture (which is a nice way of saying I talk about manure alot). My husband and I live and work on a seedstock cattle operation in northeast Nebraska. You can learn more about our cattle operation by visiting my husband's blog at http://aldersonangus.wordpress.com.

    Probably the same way our house cats “Stinky” and “Footsie” got their names. They earned it! Footsie (as a kitten) was always under our feet, and Stinky, well, you can use your imagination.

    Those are great kitty names Leslie. I’ll have to tell the boys about them this spring when we have kittens!

    That is a good name but I call my husband “Sweety” too much confusion. I would call him or her Blackie. The little boy is a sweetie too. Looks like he had other plans going on in his mind rather being a snuggle for kitty. That sweet that he sat still for awhile. Thank you for the video!
