  1. Another outstanding collection 🙂
    You will be please to know that Malina convinced me to get her a kitten, Beowka (not how its spelt , but how it sounds) And even I like her 🙂 I’ll be sure to add a pic in my next post.

  2. Wonderful photos and quotes. The mistress of our house is a beautiful little black cat called Bandit. She trained me pretty quickly which means I can have the pleasure of her stretching out across my keyboard or being wakened in the middle of the night when she brings a mouse in to play in the bedroom. To her complete disgust my husband can’t be trained to her way of thinking so she ignores him – or runs away when she sees him.

  3. Oh my goodness! My favs— the cat in Cyprus and the last shot. All the pictures are great but the last one is superb! Love it.
    ‘Had me trained in two days’! Classic.
    Zen Masters they are!

  4. “Cyprus 2005” is cute; “Winnie, at ours, 2020” is intriguing; but, for me “Troodos Mountains, Cyprus 2012” stands out as a rather fine portrait indeed.
