A couple of years ago I wrote about the sea cats of Cádiz, remarking on the little shelters that someone had put out for them amongst the seawall boulders. This visit I was not only pleasantly surprised to see many more shelters put up, but I also met the woman responsible for them. She also captures the cats, gets them sterilised, and returns them to their sea homes. On this day I found her caring for a small ginger girl who was feeling poorly and we got to talking. What a wonderful thing to do.
Well, they live next to the sea, on the rocks along the Paseo Marítimo Pablo Ruiz Picasso in Málaga. There are dozens of them, maybe more. All shapes and sizes. I always want to take the little ones home. But they seem to have a pretty good life and most look very healthy. Lots of rats down there to feast on. Also there’s at least one mad cat woman who goes down to feed them every day (not me!).
