For Cat Lovers

My very first pet as an adult (on my own) was an adopted barn cat from Norfolk, England. Her name was Ally. Named after Ally Sheedy. That was back in 1985 when I lived in the UK. Since then, I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for felines.

Connecting with kitty cats in Bali is a bit of a challenge. Cats aren’t as common as dogs on the island. Basically, the dogs rule the streets in Bali.

But, when we are in Surabaya visiting family, I get my cat fix. On the island of Java, cats rule the streets. Street dogs in Java are rare–the opposite of Bali.
