Another Ice Cream Cat?

 My brother lives in Ballymore, which is between Dingle and Ventry and quite isolated, and we used to share the house before he married. One day, a utterly malnourished and distressed ginger kitten turned up in the driveway, and we managed to keep him alive and nurse him to health.

I have him now, and he’s Gatsby, the ice cream cat. Ivan, the ice cream dog, adored him, and they used to share a bed much to the amazement of visitors (Ivan is a massive beast) until I moved into a separate house.

A couple years passed, and a second malnourished ginger kitten arrived. My aunt has that one. Now, there’s a third. Una, my little niece, wants to call him “Chi Chi.”

One really has to wonder what’s going on. Is Ballymore the place to dispose of ginger kittens?

In any case, Ivan is absolutely delighted to have a new feline companion. The poor kitten, although doing well, is seriously in danger of being licked to death. I think the poor thing needs some ice cream…

  1. Such sweet animals you have there. They are
    lucky to have found their way to your house.

    Do the kittens and doggie get any ice cream?
    Speaking of ice cream…I could sure go for
    some of your yummy confections! :)


  2. oooo! how dotey! and good for you looking after kitties in need, obv a v good mammy! we’ve had loads of little-ies stumble upon our house – did you know that there’s a train of thought that the cat grapevine will tell others where to go for food and love?
    just thinking of ivan and chi chi all wrapped up in a basket is making me go aaaaawwww… :)

  3. We have 2 dogs and 3 cats and they lived in harmony. But when the dogs died and we have taken in new pups, the youngest of the cats don’t want their company. She clawed at them whenever they come near but then the older cats sort of reprimand her every time she hurts the pups. I couldn’t believe my husband telling me about it at first but I did when they angrily shooed her away from the pups. I hope the youngest feline would get used to having them around so that there won’t be a cat-dog racket in our house.

    I’m sorry to hear about Ivan’s death. I hope your get a new dog soon to hang out in that great ice cream shop of yours.
