Cat wearing. Well done to them

If those dastardly Chinese bats had've been wearing masks then none of this sorry episode would have happened. They should've followed the exemplary behaviour of that wickle cat in 1918.

Oh my word the cat has one on. How did they get the cat to wear a face mask 😹😹

Even the cat is wearing a mask!

why over a hundred years ago are we still wearing the useless piece of cloth over our mouths. Asking for a friend.

Will take a while to make masks for your cats!!

Very similar as today except for the cat. Xxxx

Cat is also wearing a mask !

El gato también lleva mascarilla

Wonderful.

A cat with a mask

A cat.xx

Yes I am still here. Still struggling on. In the heat and very  very busy. Sad times with The Ancients. 
Bit a little brain teaser for you. 

Is it a bird or is it a cat. ? 

Tiempo de muchísimo trabajo, sin tiempo para publicar en Facebook pero el trabajo continúa, con muchas incidencias. 
Pero un foto parka haceros pensar y decidir. 

Es un pájaro o es un gato ?

Do You want a translation? If You see a bird- stop drinking! It's a cat.

Very clever picture. The second eye gives it away.

A smile to start the week. 
Una sonrisa para empezar bien la semana 

Nunca se pregunta en una canción “ Quien a dejado salir a los gatos?”
Porque la respuesta es obvio. 
La misma persona quien les abre la puerta unos minutos después para volver a entrar.

Too true. After standing with the door open for ages saying " Do you want to come back in?"😂

So cute xx

A long story.
Not sure I posted it last year. We tried hard to save 4 new born kittens. Mother was disturbed whilst giving birth.
Ran away and dropped one in the path.
We left the kittens hoping she would return for them but she didn’t so we took them to the vet.
They were cold and of course hadn’t had Mother’s milk but we tried to save them.
A lot of hard work , mainly done by Kelsang Samsang with back up from myself but it was not to be.
I didn’t know until a couple of weeks ago but Mumma did eventually return, many weeks later, with one kitten, Baby Tom.
She had another litter a few weeks back.
The lovely people who they chose to live with rand asking for help. They feared that Mumma would soon be pregnant again and Baby Tom had been in a fight and was limping.
Between us we caught the adults and two kittens.
Well have to catch the other two another day.
Mums was spayed. Maybe she’ll become a little friendlier now.
I hope so for she has picked the most wonderful home with kind people.
Baby Tom was neutered and his foot cleaned and treated.
Kittens had first vaccination and all were wormed etc.
A lovely ending to what was a very sad time last year.

Still trying to catch Gremlin One of her kittens fell down the well how we don’t know as it was covered. We managed through a friend to get a lovely young man who does abseiling to go down and rescue it Thanked us by running away but came back the next day

Hi Janice, I’ve sent you a PayPal to help xx 😘

I see how long it is since I posted. As you would expect I haven’t been off the Island, but I have been having my own kind of lockdown. 
I had the second leg fixed for varicose veins and decided that unlike last time I would try and do less. 
Absolutely no carrying of heavy traps and cages of cats. 
I’ve still been working but just had to enlist a lot more help. 
Can’t even go to buy cat food without help. 
Kelsang Samsang has been coming with me to carry and load and unload it for me. Thanks Sam. 
And when I ve gone on a mission the people who call me have to help. 
And of course when I go to Vet it’s no problem as he comes out to van to collect them and puts them back in van and indeed is always willing to come to the house to save me carrying them. 
It’s not getting any better. Two weeks now. 
Very frustrating. Very swollen and painful. 
I need a sort of cage for my leg from the knee down as I jumó every time a cat brushes by. Or worse still rubs itself against my leg. 
I’ve managed to do the feeding rounds except for the first two nights. 
And of course at home I have the five Ancients who need a great deal of looking after. Constant meals throughout the day. Medicine rounds. 
And lovely Sol who needs a lot of care. I bathed him this week. 
That was an experience that I don’t fancy repeating. 
So I’m still here. Lots to tell you. Just busy organising the Cat Café ready to reopen soon. 
There will be a mega sale of cards when I do. 
Bought the cats some new beds. They like them.
