Summer adventures

"I believe cats to be spirits come to earth.  A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through." 
Jules Verne

 Meet Mr. Itzig, our cat. He loves to play hide and seek and he loves tuna-fish and he loves to be cudlled - a lot! Sometimes, i wonder, what he's up to when we are gone. It's always hard leaving him behind, since he's such a social little fellow and so much part of the family. Am here for a day and will come visit you later!
