WHAT TO DO IN SIENA: A WEEKEND FOR CAT AND REPTILE LOVERS, JANUARY 12/13 2013

You're so slow, I'm falling asleep here

Italian cats and reptiles? I'm no specialist, but I happen to know many a Tuscan example of them, as they tend to hang around our olive grove. Luckily the snakes never like to stay on, once the grove gets crowded. But the cats love to look on and tell me what I'm supposed to do with the olives I'm trying to get off our trees. As if I didn't know for myself. That feline sense of superiority!

It was about time she managed to get a few olives together

In fact I'm tempted to visit Siena's cat show just to find out whether the Burmese, the Blu Russian, the Sphynx or any other examples of the species are a little less presumptuous than my Italian olive grove breed.

But then - I shouldn't complain. The Tuscan cats my be bossy, but as long as the vipers keep being shy, I'm happy to leave nature its course. The Exotic Shorthair may look shy and goodhearted, but who knows whether it likes to share its hunting grounds with a boa constrictor.
