What It Is, Mama

The dimensions of a cat, according to Wikipedia, average about 46 cm (18 in) in head-to-body length and 23–25 cm (9–10 in) in height, with about 30 cm (12 in) long tails.

This, natch, is true for your average domestic cat, Felis catus, and neither some ridiculous too-small-for-school mutant, nor what some rich idiots in Texas or Dubai keep in their back yards – we assume, in the expectation that it will some day chew someone’s leg off. Bad kitty.

The Dimension of Cats is not that.

It is the space, in and around our sort-of farmhouse in Spain, that has been taken over by, well, cats.

Many cats live here, more come to visit and eat, and occasionally we have some random other beasties that show up. We never really had a choice in the matter.

This webpage is an attempt to share something of the local herd with those who can’t have their own cat, who need a cautionary tale of why not to get one, or who just like them for some unfathomable reason. Sorry for the photo quality, most of them come from whatever phone I had handy.

Maybe, at some point, you’ll be inclined to contribute to the cat food and web hosting fund. Meanwhile, just enjoy the cat pictures. After all, that’s the whole point of the Internet.
