Megabyte2 is back home in Mission, TX. right here in Retama Village where we met 10 months ago. The BIG question is,,,,,,does she remember? Please all you Pet people and especially you Cat lovers, tell me.... does she know this is where she came from? She doesn't go outside, but looks out all the windows all the time. Of course, she does that wherever we are.
The BIGGER question is,,,,,,does she remember her old friend "TOM", the Tom Cat she was living with here and the guy that got her in a family way? We didn't know for sure if he would still be around when we got back this Fall, but we had only been here a couple days and sure enough, there he was!! Early one morning before daylight I walked outside and he suddenly appeared out of the darkness. He was meowing like crazy, but still wouldn't let me touch him. Remember last year I fed him along with Megabyte2 for a couple months. Then I looked up in the window and there was Mega2 looking out at him.....she started meowing too!
Now did they recognize each other after being apart for 10 months? They didn't get close, but they DID see each other. I didn't feed Ole' Tom this time, but he acted awful hungry and I sure wanted to feed him. I sorta ignored him for 2 or 3 mornings in a row and he stopped showing up. He did come through our yard during the daylight time one day and sure enough Mega2 saw him that time too, but he was here and gone and didn't linger. Now Ms Mega2 does get excited anywhere we are if she sees another Cat or even a Dog or really almost any animal.
So you tell me,,,,my friends, do they recognize each other or not? They didn't get to talk or get close to each other so there was no smelling invoved. Please don't even suggest it!!!!! We can NOT have another Cat!!! Ms Megabyte2 gets ALL of our attention and NO she doesn't need a Playmate!...... He IS a neat Cat tho...:-)
Old Tom last winter
Well, thankfully it cooled off a little down here in the Rio Grande Valley. It has been about 61 each morning when we go on our walk and that is nice. It gets up to 80-85-90 in the afternoon and it hasn't been quite so humid.
Sunday morning it was comfortably cooler and we decided it would be a nice time for our first longer Bike ride in the Valley on the Harley. So we got all our leathers on and decided to see what we could find. We took off toward the East and finally got out in the country.
We went about 40 miles and stopped at a Picnic area to stretch and Ms Pat was checking the map.
We looked back to the West where we had come from and saw this:
We then looked to the East the way we were headed and saw this:
Back to the Map!!!
Well, it was a nice morning for a ride and since it was Sunday morning there wasn't a lot of traffic yet, but there sure wasn't anything to see!!!! 40 miles of this was about enough, so we turned around and went back to the local Harley Dealership in McAllen.
There were a few other riders around there and we enjoyed spending some time looking at all the Bikes and the fancy Harley Garb. Then we headed on the last 10 miles home. 80 miles round trip and it was enjoyable. We are extending our rides a little more each time and this is our longest so far, but I doubt either of us has the desire to go on great, long trips. This Harley is real comfortable to ride and cruises right along but "I ain't as good once as I once was". I admit it!!

That's about it so far this week from down here on the Border....
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Remember now, all my Cat friends,,,,,,I'm waiting for your expert opinions..
God Bless you all!!
