A Day in the Life on Roatan: The Kittens

Date Posted: May 29, 2015
Posted in: All About Roatan

What a week it has been in our household! Monday evening just before sunset, we took Lina for a walk in the neighborhood. Hearing some meowing in the bushes, the Irish-Colombian went to investigate. Three little kittens were sitting on top of a large plastic bag. We assume that was the vessel in which they were left in this location off the side of the road in the jungle. Sadly, that type of abandonment happens often here. And as I found out a few days later, two other kittens had been found in the same area earlier in the day, making this five total that someone decided to simply throw away. I can’t even fathom that line of thinking.

It’s time for another Day in the Life on Roatan! And this is a good one, guys, so get ready…

I woke up to the sunshine and birds around 6am, managed to open my sleepy eyes and get up to take Lina for a walk through the neighborhood shortly thereafter. We stopped to chat with Diego and our furry friend on the hill – I think I’ll name him Don Juan. He’s adorable and Lina likes him, even though he tries to kiss her through the fence all the time.

simple life leads to happiness

I can’t count the number of messages and emails I get from people saying how jealous they are of my life. I often have to remind them that they can choose their own path. My path might not actually be perfect for many people – but it is perfect for me. You can go wherever you want to go in life! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you are not a tree.
