Ponza Paradise!

We made it to Ponza! It’s just as beautiful, if not more beautiful, than I remember it being last year and I’m over the moon that my three cousins love it just as much as I do! We had to motor most of the night to get here because there was practically no wind, BUT it was a gorgeous flat calm evening and nobody got sea sick. Result!

My cousins woke up to this view…



I’m also very happy to have complete freedom to be outside and roam the deck freely. The only not so happy things aboard are my plants. My cat grass and the human’s basil plant are wilting and not loving the cocktail of heat and salt air. I’m making sure to nibble the last few good bits of grass!

It’s my birthday in two days and I’m so excited we’re going to be here to celebrate it. I’m going to be running a ‘comment-a-thon’ to celebrate with each comment here raising money for my chosen charity this year The Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. For every comment on my blog, new like or comment on my Facebook page or tweet addressed to me @baileyboatcat, I will donate £0.50 to Battersea Dogs and Cats home up to the value of £200. Battersea Doga and Cats home are a wonderful organisation this is what they say on their website:

We aim never to turn away a dog or cat in need of help, caring for them until their owners or loving new homes can be found, no matter how long it takes. We are champions for, and supporters of, vulnerable dogs and cats, determined to create lasting changes for animals in our society. Every year, we care for over 8,000 dogs and cats.

Of course there’s going to be a party so please tell all your friends to pop by and join in with the birthday fun on Thursday!

Bisons, Bailey
