September 22

From the day before I left for Mexico, Cynthia and I had a great day driving around the OC and I've just now got to the pictures.

Wow, first we stopped off at a hote$$$, the tres chic Montage Resort and Spa in Laguna Beach.
A view from the lobby.
Then we went to visit The Blue Bell, Rest Home for CATS. I just HAD to see this place. This is the outdoor lounging portion of the Home, connected by doors and windows to the actual house.

It was raining and had been most of the morning so all the cats were inside. Oh No! I Reeeeally wanted to see those cats.
But there were no tours that day! You have to reserve in advance! Oh NO. A little pathetic pleading and a compassionate woman at the door...
...and we're in.
It's a regular house donated by a cat lady, Bertha Gray Yergat, who created the Foundation for Cats. There are just cats Everywhere.
There were bunk-beds in most of the rooms with these cat beds lined up along every surface.
Including on the mantels, bookshelves, everywhere.
And you know, it was NICE inside. We couldn't believe how nice. There is a full time staff to keep everything cleaned up and the cats happy and healthy.

In my house, when I had just the one cat, you couldn't sit Anywhere or put your clothes on Any surface without the benefit of cat hair but here, with dozens of cats, the floors, furniture, and bedding were all Clean. Wow.
What a couple of cuties.
Then we stopped off at the seal rescue station, with plenty of eating and a movie added in for More Fun.
