Belize update, and another new addition........

Post by Helen Mile » Mon, 11 Mar 2002 01:19:28



Hi Folks,

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
Helen M

The Kids were very happy to see me - HRFL Tiger is extra special clingy and
it is rather nice:)

Could be. Solo is alone, so if it were made female and diminutive that would
work. The other option which I think is a bit more grammatically correct,
would be "little sun" -- and if she is a yellow/tan and white with a sunny
disposition I would suspect that to be the intended meaning. :-) But then
again the spanish I speak is a different dialect than what you are surrounded
by, so there may be a difference of which I am unaware.

Sounds like you're having a great time so far. Congrats on thigs working out
so well!!

That would be "solecito", and it would have to be masculine since "sol"
is masculine.

<Spanish language cap off>

If we knew what we were doing it would not be called research, would it?

Welcome Back Helen.  As always, we missed you being here.  The house sounds
interesting, sort of a manufactured house?  I can't wait to see the pictures and am
glad the kitties made you welcome as always.

Doh, true. I was thinking of someone who didn't speak the language and how
they would make a "little sun" female. And being the space cadet I am I
managed to word it wrong -- meant to say *less* gramatically correct. lol.

I need to NOT post the morning after my shot. I get stupid and mix up what I
mean to say.

do they have clouded leopards in Belize?  They are so beautiful.

My sons girlfriend just returned from a trip down there, but I think they
just did a lot of snorkeling...  you know, good solid college class serious
study stuff.

No, clouded leopards are from Asia - mostly around the Thailand/Vietnam
region IIRC.

This all sounds wonderful, Helen! Looking forward to the pic of the house
that was delivered on a truck ;)! Solita sounds like a great character, what
a cutie! And Tiger "holding you hostage" is just the best news of all, I
bet.
Best wishes and purrs,
