The foreigners

My Greek trio is settling in very well. I wanted to wait until the start of next week to begin giving them freedom in the barn, but today they all stormed the door and ran around the lower barn like feline lunatics.


Buttercup to the horse stalls and immediately dropped and rolled in the stone dust, then had a good scratch!


Eventually I rounded them all up and put them on lock down. 


They seem to like the new "Catty Stacks" boxes I put together for them!


Isn't Buttercup a beauty?





Daisy checking out what Honey is up to!



The very sweet Honey. Every beekeeper needs a cat named Honey!



So demure!


And then...


... I got out the treats and everyone went wild!


"I am so much more refined!"

Emerson was inside napping on my printer, wishing I would bring him some treats too.

Speaking of cats, Joan, who sent me my three Greek kitties and runs a wonderful cat sanctuary in Greece, is looking for sponsors for her rescue cats. She is featuring a feline a day on her Facebook page until Christmas, and each kitty is looking for a monthly sponsor. Check it out here.

Have a great evening!

  1. I am TOTALLY having a case of the Ornj jealousies! Are you planning to learn to meow in Greek?

  2. You really do make the perfect home for kitty cats! They must be so happy! Lots of people don't have such a cozy home. :)

  3. They are all beautiful, Natalie. And what a fun place you have made for them. I am so anxious to visit so Gary and I will take a drive up to meet and greet after the holidays.

  4. Natalie, I don't know what to say... Who's happier - the girls or me?? You have created an opportunity far beyond what I had dreamed possible for these girls. And given their unique and very strong bond, it is SUCH a gift that you offered them all a home together and gave me a very special experience as for my first adoption story. You gave me hope when I genuinely thought all hope was lost of ever finding them a home. And hope at a much larger scale, because let's face it, just what are the chances of a little Greek cat - not to mention three! - to find someone who would go to such loving care and trouble to offer them a forever home. It's so inspirational what you've done - and it still would be if I wasn't the lucky one to be directly involved in the story! XO

  7. Love the *Happy Cat* pic! And so glad everyone is doing well. I can see your pet menagerie turning into a home for hundreds of needy critters... world-wide.

  9. Oh my gosh too cute!!! They look like such sweet cats.

    now that you are in double figures I dread to think how many little trays you have to clear every day!! How do you manage, I could not even handle one when my cat was inside, but luckily here in NZ she now has a cat door and can take herself out to the bathroom.

  10. Lovely, lucky girls! I can't decide who is luckier, you for having so many kitties to love, or all the kitties for having such a wonderful home with such amazing people!

  11. Haha, the treats pic is hilarious!

  12. Aren't they beautiful! And happy! Half way 'round the world they've come and found a home where they will be loved and cherished forever.
    Can you imagine what an amazing book their story would make? A tale filled with love, adventure and hope. Awesome! It might also help raise awareness and £€$ to save more kitties.

  13. It looks like a high end cat hotel in your barn with everything the vacationing Greek cat could ever want!

  14. I saw mention of your blog on Trish's post (Katnip Lounge) and came by, as I never pass up checking out another Canadian blog. I've read your cast of characters and a couple of recent posts and just want to thank you with ever fibre of my being for all the rescuing and adopting. I live in Kingston, with my two adoptees from the Gananoque shelter, and they're about all I can manage! LOL. I don't blog a lot anymore, but will add you to Feedly, so I can at least keep up from "afar."

    Best regards,

    Kim, with Nicki and Derry

  15. What a life! And what a bunch of beauties!

  16. According to Google Translate the Greek for Miaow is Miaow (I checked), so they should be able to communicate ok. (The French for Miaow is somewhat different though, (Miaou) which makes me wonder if any of your other cats are French Canadians, as that may cause problems).

  17. LOVE LOVE LOVE the treat picture :)

    XOXO

  19. Looks like I found you at the BEST time! Learned about you from The Katnip Lounge clan and had to visit! I also know (and love) Joan and you are incredible that you adopted some of the Greek kitties!!!! I had posted them on Facebook and what an angel you are! So happy to meet you! www.catchatwithcarenandcody.com
