“Rumor has it multi-colored cats bring luck. In earlier times, Japanese sailors even traveled with multi-colored cats to keep away evil and to guarantee a safe trip. By the way, these happiness cats are nearly always female because the color information is linked to the x chromosome,” writes Claudia Mannes on her blog Kleinplanet 311.
In any case, these cats definitely brought happiness during Claudia Mannes' stay in the Apartamentos Villa Colon in the small village of Los Quemados, which is part of Fuencaliente in the south of La Palma. “These magical felines visited me every day. The loveliest of them all was the red-black-white one, who, most of the time, brought her little kitten daughter with her (the tiny grey-red-white one). The apartments are a perfect hideaway. Situated at the end of an extremely steep road, Villa Colon consists of only 3 or 4 apartments, surrounded by a garden, overlooking the sea. It's very quiet and peaceful.”
In other news, my short film script Next to Her will be filmed August 8th and 9th. Avalon has a HUGE part in it. The film will premiere in October at the Flanders International Film Festival Ghent. If you can't wait for the film (and if you want to know how Avalon's part plays out), you can read the script here. If you are a Kindle Unlimited member, it's free.
