Hallooo! I’m back

Those pesky tourists got me on a train and wouldn’t let me off until we hit a town named Udine. It turned out the female of the pair has some Italian relatives nearby, who insisted we eat and drink and laugh and talk. They also tended to photo-bomb at every opportunity. It must be a genetic trait.

Well, every cloud has a silver lining. We saw some lovely cats who would pose for about 5 euro a shot (or some treats, whichever was convenient for us).

So here you go, the obligatory cute cat photos.

This first cool cat was, in fact, a Venetian resident

This cat belonged to our hosts for the weekend. Her name is Ghia.


And, this was a cat weย encounteredย in Udine. It seemed to have a sore front paw.ย

    • The cats I know and love in Oz (mine and my son’s) are such well behaved felines. You must run with the bad crowd, to know mayhem-making moggies, suchled!

    • Oh, lordy, don’t tell Lulu, she’ll go all sulky. There are so many lovely pooches, I’m sure I can find a few for you and the other canine lovers, Andrew.

      I’m so far behind with reading blogs I follow, it’s like being on a treadmill!

    Is there any such thing as an uncute cat photo? We’ve “stalked” cats for cuddles and photos all over the Venetian lagoon, it seems, when there and missing our own cats, who are safely at home. The cats on Torcello seem to be an especially resilient lot – and there used to be one large Tabby on Burano that we were really sorry when we stopped seeing it, a couple of years ago. It was so lovely, and BIG!

    • I’m dragging those pesky tourists to the islands of the north lagoon this weekend. We all like cats, so I hope they come out and reveal themselves to us, Andante.


  10. And Michelle does love those. More cats in Udine please….I have ancient roots there too….from about the 13th century. I’m sure they must have kept cats…or been kept by cats.

    Welcome back Y. It is always nice to see some cat photos, particularly Venetian cat photos! I am looking forward to hearing about Udine. You are going to tell us about Undine, aren’t you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Well, we spent very little time there, as the pesky relatives lived in nearby Faedis, and after the wine, food, etc., we were absolutely exhausted. I’ll see what I can cobble together, once I’ve recuperated, Susie. ๐Ÿ™‚
