I guess I could have predicted that this blog would start to include the pet cats, even if the Butterfly Cat charity doesn’t (despite the pets drooling over the cheap out-of-bounds dry food!). The fact is they all interact, and quite positively so far. I think Scruffy may even have a bit of a thing for both Bette Davis and Jessie. He gets quite puffed up and animated when they come around.
Mizuki (our Bengal) has been gone for 7 weeks now. Someone said they thought they saw her in nearby village but we have followed that up and drawn a blank. Apart from that, no one has responded to our posters which are up all over the countryside, in bus stops and on lampposts. It is hard not knowing what happened to her when she wandered off all those Saturdays ago, and unless she is warm and safe and hunting in a barn somewhere, the possibilities are bleak.
Still the work with the ferals goes on. Here’s Patrick, ‘Pet Feeder of the Month’ getting amongst it in the undergrowth one evening. Thank you!!
Apart from the continuous presence of Husky, and twice a week visits of Clem Fandango, Bette Davis and Jessie, there are not many cats around right now, or maybe they are turning up at night to see what’s left in the comederos.
The builders are here every day and Jose Manuel has some feral cats he looks after on his finca. One has just had kittens and he is looking for homes for them. I have been pushing the point about neutering, and printed out the chart below for him today. It’s staggering, and he was suitably impressed. I'll let you know what happens.
