It Won’t Be Long

Four years ago today, or yesterday, or tomorrow, Dudo and Moose were born and immediately taken, with their mother and three tiger-striped sisters, to an animal shelter in Sevilla. Ten months later, we found each other. Oh, the mess they make. The love they share. And the calm they produce.

They recognise suitcases and travel activity and have both been a bit miffed the last couple of days (although right now they’re running around the house with a new mouse toy, seemingly oblivious to our activity). 

Anyway, we won’t be gone long and our neighbour Maria Carmen and her two daughters take good care of them when we’re away.

So now it’s off to the airport.

DUDO: “GOOD MORNING. I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU TO WAKE UP.”
DURING OUR SIESTA.
“YOU CANNOT LOOK AT A SLEEPING CAT AND FEEL TENSE.”
UNLIKE DUDO, WHO POSES, MOOSE TENDS TO TURN AWAY
WHEN HE SEES THE CAMERA. SOME RARE COOPERATION HERE.
AND DUDO…
DUDO…
AND MOOSE.

It won’t be long…
