King of the Corn Fields

In March, I traveled to rural South Carolina to visit my parents after just having moved across the country to Seattle, WA. I brought my (at that time) 3 month old kitten, Dr. Watson, with me. Then COVID happened, so we decided the most responsible thing to do was to stay put in South Carolina a little longer. A little longer turned into 10 months and counting, while Watson, the timid indoor kitten, became confident farm cat.
