ABC Wednesday—K is for "kitties"

These are some of the well-fed kitties that roam
all over the lovely village of Vernazza, in Italy's
Cinque Terre. In fact, I don't know if these cats are
still there.  Eleven months ago, Vernazza was all
but destroyed by a massive landslide.  Fortunately,

the town is now almost completely restored
(see longtime Vernazza-lover Rick Steve's report)
and I hope the kitty population is once again thriving too.

  1. I'm going to imagine the kitties all made it just fine, Alexa ~ I'd rather do that and stay in my happy place. ;) They are beautiful.

  2. They certainly do look well-fed. Animals sometimes sense earthquakes ahead of time, so maybe they headed for a safer place.

  3. kitties tend to be survivors!

  4. You're all absolutely right, and I'm currently in Shell's happy place thinking positive thoughts about Vernazza's well-cared-for cat population and their 9 (make that 8 now) lives.

  5. I'm with Shell and Bibi, that they sensed it beforehand and went to a safe place. They have beautiful markings.
