Every Cat Wants To Be An Island...Alpaca!

I had the immense pleasure of visiting The Island Cats and The Lady with the Yellow Hair, Susan, last week.  I met Wally, Zoey and Ernie in their natural habitat, but refrained from using the camera so I could devote all of my energies to making smoochie noises and squeeing with delight!  Sue and I had met up previously, when we visited The Ferndale Catfe' Lounge; my post about that is here.

We traveled to Gibraltar Bay Alpaca Farm!  Alpacas...really?!?  YES!!!

Lovely markings!

This mama was ready to have her bebe!

Messy eaters

This wild turkey also lives with the alpacas

Cat finger puppet, made from alpaca yarn

Alpaca fingerless gloves...for texting in the cold!
After our romp with the alpacas, turkeys, and basically enjoying the great outdoors, we ate lunch at Bobcat Bonnie's in Wyandotte. Delicious food, with vegan and vegetarian choices (Yay!), huge portions, and another 'cat' to enjoy!

Vegan options, and the food was yummy!

Thank you for the warm wishes for Chuck!
The family that lost Champ and Nala are still reeling from the emotions, but are grateful for the outpouring of love and sympathy


  1. Those alpacas are pretty adorable! Not as adorable as The Island Cats of course ... but we all know cats rule!

  2. Great photos! We love Sue and her Island Cats!!!

  3. How cool that you could meet Sue and The Island Cats in fur ! Those alpacas are adorable ! Purrs

  4. Look at those necks, they look like ostriches, kinda. PS: remember the HopCat post? I got them to send me all three rewards cards, with different cat artwork. Pretty neat stuff!! And we don't even have any HopCats here.

    1. Wow, that is so cool! When I was in Minneapolis a week ago, a brand new HopCat opened the day I left, so they are spreading out!

  5. It sounds like you had a purrfect vacation! Meeting Ernie, Wally, Zoey, and their mom Sue, and then meeting some lovely alpacas. Sounds like a fantastic time to us!

  6. Now how come the mom hasn't taken us over to meet those alpacas???

    We're sorry we weren't more sociable when you were here visiting.

  7. That's so great that you got to meet the Island Cats in the fur!!! Those alpacas are darling...I love the kitty finger puppet made from their hair!

  8. Any mention of alpacas and our mom thinks of a very very old novelty record her sister had sung by Edd Byrnes (77 Sunset Strip). Elliott could totally relate to the messy eater!

  14. Those alpacas are the cutest! How fun that you got to meet the Island Cats!

  15. TW used to have an alpaca sweater but she washed it. Not only did it shrink but it also smelled. They are adorable though. How great that you met Wally, Ernie and Zoey!

  16. What a treat to meet the island cats in person! I love alpaca and llamas and wish I could knit. Those finger gloves are purrfect.
