It Won't Be Long

Four years ago today, or yesterday, or tomorrow, Dudo and Moose were born and immediately taken, with their mother and three tiger-striped sisters, to an animal shelter in Sevilla. Ten months later, we found each other. Oh, the mess they make. The love they share. And the calm they produce.

They recognise suitcases and travel activity and have both been a bit miffed the last couple of days (although right now they're running around the house with a new mouse toy, seemingly oblivious to our activity). 

Anyway, we won't be gone long and our neighbour Maria Carmen and her two daughters take good care of them when we're away.

So now it's off to the airport.

DUDO: "GOOD MORNING. I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU TO WAKE UP."
DURING OUR SIESTA.
"YOU CANNOT LOOK AT A SLEEPING CAT AND FEEL TENSE."
UNLIKE DUDO, WHO POSES, MOOSE TENDS TO TURN AWAY
WHEN HE SEES THE CAMERA. SOME RARE COOPERATION HERE.
AND DUDO...
DUDO...
AND MOOSE.

It won't be long...

  1. Missing you already! I'll just console myself with these photos of the suave and debonair Moose and Dudo... and strawberries.

  4. (Me having, just a few mins ago, to get on hands and knees in the road to pull Blackso out from under a parked car - his favoured place to lie when the sun's too hot for him. I'm sure He only does it to annoy.)
    Your two express themselves, like most felines, through their entire bodies - but the eyes say so much more than all the rest. (When they're open and alert, that is.)

  5. Gosh, I love those cats.

    Whenever we pull out a suitcase because we're leaving town, Tuxedo will take up residence in it like he's going with us. I always double-check the bags before we close 'em up to make sure they're Tux-Free.

    Safe travels!

  6. They certainly know how to relax. Animals are good for the soul.

  7. They have to be the cutest cats in the world!
    They are, right Mitchell?
    Have a good and productive visit with your mother.
