"Corsican Cats"

My wife always insisted that she was not a cat person. The trouble is, cats don't know this.

2004 was the year she finally got busted, and it took Corsican cats to do it.

Corsica has a large population of feral cats, but there is a distinct sub-species of these that inhabits anywhere within a five mile radius of a self-catering villa (and that covers a lot of territory).



It wasn't long before our local cat found her. It ignored me. It headed straight for the person who didn't like cats.




Sigh...

...it wasn't long before plates of cat food and other gourmet cat delicacies were mysteriously appearing outside the kitchen door, and that had nothing to do with me!


The word spread, and 3 years later when we returned to Corsica, only a few miles from our previous place, the local cat appeared within seconds...



As I say, this is a distinct sub-species of "feral"...



...and turned out to be the advance guard of a large family with ever-increasing ramifications.




The youngest members of the family weren't introduced until several days had gone by.







On the few rainy days when we were stuck indoors, we spent what seemed like hours watching this wild bunch of felines hang out on the beach towel (probably mine) that my cat-hating spouse had so kindly provided.

We have never felt the need to watch TV while staying in Corsica.
