Well, I'm back after quite an eventful trip. Building the cat rescue and
recovery centre is going well. The first enclosure is almost finished, and
at 20ft X 20ft X 20ft high, (for one cat) it is quite an impressive
structure - especially as it is a new type of caging system that relies on
hog panels clipped together rather than using mesh and poles! (6 guage wire,
each panel weighs an impressive 100lbs!).
We reckon that we should be shipping everyone out in mid may - *hopefully*
that will be the case!!:))
My house was also delivered....... Yes..... a 20ft X 32ft house that came
fully finished and was delivered on the back of a truck! My eyes almost fell
out of my head! I *knew* that the house would be delivered, but what I
actually expected, I had no idea! I have Jpegs when I have scanned them in,
for those sceptics among you, and it is quite a sight!!
We also have a new addition... a very sweet 7 week old guard puppy who was
presented to us by our general manager, Javier, who is a local guy from the
local village. She is a local brand of mutt, Tan and white with long floppy
ears that she keeps tripping over and a ratlike scrawny tail. We reckon that
she'll be about 30lbs, and will*** intruders to death!! She has been
informed that she is now a GRINGO dog, and is therefore being treated by the
staff as such - she is allowed to sleep in the caretakers house on her own
bed, and is being fed *puppy* food twice a day. Gringo dogs are treated very
differently to local dogs - apparently Gringo dogs don't work for a living!!
;) Her name is Solita, which means *alone* in spanish I believe.
It is good to be back - I have about 1800 + posts to go through, so purrs to
those who need them, congrats to those who deserve them, Flea, we're all
coming to Vegas for your wedding if we can - major CONGRATS BTW, and
Jeanette, please can you email re. next week as I have lost your new addy -
we're still OK if you are!
Purrs to all
The Kids were very happy to see me - HRFL Tiger is extra special clingy and
it is rather nice:)
