With every visit to the Isle of Man, I look forward to visiting the kitties at the Mann Cat Sanctuary.
It is one of the most fascinating places I have seen. Cats roam free within the building and surrounding property. At every turn is a little head waiting for a stroke.

The resident parrot keeps an eye on things
Meet a real Manx cat
These guys were so chilled out
Sue Critchley, who runs the Sanctuary, greets everyone who visits.
Her lap mate was trying desperately to eat the donation I had just given her (not the first time, Sue tells me)
I was very pleased that Sue remembered me, as we had chatted last year about my work with Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative
On my way out, I met this little guy. He came bounding up to me, running in a very funny way. When he got close, I realized he was missing his back left leg. That didn't stop him though.
Back at the cottage, I couldn't resist snapping these lovely views from the back of the cottage.
