While in Maui, we took the ferry over to Lanai to visit the Lanai Cat Sanctuary. Since we were missing our kitties, this was a great way to get our kitty fix.
Before telling you about the cat sanctuary, I wanted to show you a picture out the front of the van on the way. It really looked surreal to me.
This is a three-acre area on this small island that takes in feral and other abandoned cats, feeds them, takes care of their medical issues, and provides a safe place for them to live. Keeping the feral cats here also helps to save the endangered birds and reduces the cat overpopulation. They currently have 570 spayed/neutered cats. Cats with FIV or other illnesses have their own separate area. They are now building a new area just for the senior citizens.
This sweet little girl didn’t want to leave my lap.
Tuesday we will be starting our partial kitchen and bath renovation. We’ll be replacing the counter tops, back splash, fixing a couple of the cabinets and adding a new microwave. We also are removing the ceramic tile in both the kitchen and the bathroom. I’m sure not looking forward to the mess!!
The new microwave, the instapot, coffee pot and a hot plate are now in my dye studio (garage) where we’ll be cooking for the next couple of weeks. I know it will be nice when we’re done, but I sure am dreading it right now. But the sun is out today and even though it’s cold, it was a great day for a walk. Hope it’s sunny in your neck of the woods.
