Two lovely piccies of Spider outside in the alley that I shot using a sepia filter the other day…
Naughty Ruby! She really is such a big bully! She chases and attacks any cat that she encounters outside in the alley. Here she is having a tiff with Cascabel, my neighbour´s cat, who is just minding her own business sleeping in that window behind the bars (not visible in the pic)….
Your favourite feline photographer´s Cat Calendar 2015 is now available!
I have chosen some of my best photos again and put them in this calendar. Some are pet cats here in Lanzarote, and other photos are of those gorgeous feral street cats. The calendar makes a great Christmas gift for your cat lover friends or family, or for yourself to keep of course. In Euros, the price for this lovely calendar works out around €16 including shipping (depending on your location, it might be less than that though).
For every calendar sold I will donate €1.00 to 9 Lives Lanzarote (local spay/neuter charity).
Here you can preview the calendar pages.
Storets, a women’s fashion brand, has partnered up with Neighborhood Cats, a charity organization for feral cats in New York City, to make a faux fur coat & clutch bag that will save feral cats´ lives.
Storets started off with the idea that faking it is better than the real deal. Why wear cruel real fur items and kill an innocent furry animal, when fake ones look and feel even better? And to make that message more clear than ever, they made a faux fur coat that will actually save a cats´ lives, instead of taking lives away.
One purchase of a faux fur coat will give one kitten his/her first health checkup. One purchase of a faux fur clutch bag will give a warm, insulated shelter for 4 feral cats. So by wearing this Ragdoll Tabby Faux Fur Coat (yes, it’s named after a ragdoll tabby cat!) you can be proud about not only saving a fox’s or other beautiful animal´s life from the fur industry, but also about giving a feral cat a healthy start in his/her life.
Please go and support their IndieGoGo Campaign by making a donation or buying one of their gorgeous fake fur coats or clutches – click this link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/storets-faux-fur-coat-fake-it-for-the-cats
Spider is a 15 year old “grandad”, but he´s still soooo playful! He loves playing with the leaves outside that the wind blows around…
And some other photos from that session…
Nom. Treats! And Catnip!
Spider really doesn´t want to be there…

A friend and I trapped one of the feral kittens from the cat colony in the Old Town Harbour in Puerto del Carmen yesterday, took it to the vet to be neutered, and returned it to its familiar surroundings today.
Here it is reunited with its mum and litter mates (licking the vet stench off its fur!).
Here´s Janelle in all her glory. My secret to get cats to look at the camera like that, is flapping a fly swatter around just above the camera. The fluttery sound and motion gets their attention every time!
The other gorgeous kitty is called Squeaky and she has the most bewitching olive green eyes you will ever see…
“Tapas” in Spain are basically small bites of lots of different things that you can mix on your plate. Here´s Lugosi with a selection of raw meat tapas…
Listen to those little purrrrrrs. 🙂
