No kittens yet...

But there has been some activity at the shelter!

I was out of the country last week, visiting Spain! Beautiful place.
We stayed in Marbella, on the southwestern coast, and we had a fantastic time. Our "babies" were cared for by our friend, who also happens to be our contractor, they one who renovated our basement. They all know him, and love him, and he loves them. Sure makes it easier to relax when you are away when you have a great house-sitter.

I may be getting some kittens this week, but until then, here are some of the gang, and a couple from Spain!

Babies still enjoying the new basement!

This is a tiny...but LONG cat.

Bentley can sleep in some odd positions.

On a road trip while in Spain. (I'm on the far left)

A very cool village (Ojen) on the hillside.

Gibraltar, about a 45 minute drive from Marbella.

Did I mention the monkeys on Gibraltar?

Did I mention how friendly the monkeys are on Gibraltar?

You're alive! Welcome back.
Mr 'tiny-but-long-cat' is still as cute as ever! And you are right, going on holiday knowing the kids are looked after makes all the difference. Spain, huh? So, hablas espanol? Me? Not so much...i was getting good in Peru but haven't used it much since then...I look forward to travel tales and tiny tails that delight. Excellent.

The "monkeys" are the famous Barbery Apes, the only ones in Europe and they are kept because if they leave "the Rock" so will the British and the Gibraltarians like being Brits!!

Correct Diddley! I believe it was Winston Churchill that said "We will be in Gibraltar as long as there are apes here" and then went and added some more, just to be safe! LOL! They babies were very cute...sorta like kittens! They just wanted to play! I think they may have been my favorite part of the trip.

And Lita, no, I don't hablas espanol much either, but I think most of the natives speak english, so we didn't have any trouble.

Looking forward to some kittens soon!
