I'm Bachelor. I was born on the farm up the hill from Mom's.
My story is only 3 years long.
I was born To Sheba, the Feist in Mulberry, Arkansa.
Mom picked me before I even had my eyes open.
She had to fight for me. Al Brooks, my Mother's master, wanted to keep me for himself.
You see, Buster 1 was my father. I was all she had left of him.
I was born not long after he died. One look told her he was my sire.
I lived with a neat bunch.
Blue was the oldest, then Teddy, I think Calico Jane was born just after me,
then Ebony showed up, then Mama Kitty. Ace & BlackJack were born to
Ebony after she'd been there about a year - then Calico Jane met Tiger Tom & had PaintBox. They were nice for cats.
I was free to roam the hills, woods & fields.
Oh, my name - funny. Mom liked The Bachelors, the Irish Singing Group.
That's where my name came from.
I only had one problem. Seth, the old black Newfoundland up the hill at the dairy farm.
We never liked each other. He smelled bad to me. Guess I must have smelled bad to him too.
We got in a fight on the road when Mr. Mirus was taking mom home one evening.
The truck coming, & a painful thump is all I remember.
Seth isn't here on the Rainbow Bridge. At least not here. Must have gone somewhere else.
