The Bothy Cat

The ailurophiles among you (and I know you are legion) must view this slideshow about a truly remarkable tuxedo cat who lives in a truly amazing place, and the good people who spent a month in Ireland with her.

Ronnie, thank you so much for sharing the magic of the Bothy Cat with your other readers! “Miss Kitty” is a proud priestess of Tuxedo pre-eminence, and it is good that the internet can be used to distribute her grace. (Oolie’s in a snit about it, but that’s another matter.)

Miss Kitty is at the heart of Ireland – geographically speaking, at least. Birr is very, very close to the geographic center of the island, and was a perfect place to base our stay.

Here are a few links that might interest folks who liked our Irish Miss Kitty :
Birr Castle Demesne slide show (same length as the Bothy Cat series, but of the castle and grounds, including the reconstructed “Leviathan of Parsonstown” telescope).
Our complete Ireland vacation slide show, broken into little pieces for easy digestion. (Warning: this first page includes some not cheerful information concerning the circumstances of our trip to Ireland.)
The Birr Castle Demesne official website.
Birr Castle Demesne music
(This is a link to the page for a “new age” CD of particularly relaxing works inspired by Miss Kitty’s grounds. It’s titled “Gardens of Birr Castle Demesne”. It is also the only New Age music I have, or allow, within the boundaries of my property.)

Bless you, ronniecat, and scritches to Mojo and Veronica.

The glass was always wavy. Glass does not flow at Irish ambient temperatures. It's just that "float" glass, which is flat, is a recent invention.

Cool slide show, Sherwood.

So, Carl, how about I change "have become" with "are" in the caption in question? That should take care of the problem.
