Local natives: island kittens

Welcome to the little spot between Otres (beach) 1 and Otres 2 on the coast of Cambodia: Penguin Pablo.  This was our launch pad to go to Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem islands.

We stayed at Robinson Bungalows on the island. Jess was stoked for the hammock on the porch.  Between the two of us, their restaurant ran out of bok choi.

Second best dog guide, the crew from Bamboo Nest in Chiang Rai would have loved this island exploration

Swim, swam, swum

So, we met the island kittens (twins!) and they hung out with us all day, then at night they crawled into our bed, which was already sandy, so what’s some fleas between friends?

We named them Boone and Short Tail. We kept getting them confused though. I would be playing with Boone and telling him he was the best cat ever and so smart and funny and then he’d turn around and I’d be like “whoa! Short Tail!” What the heck!

So long cats, we’ll remember you forever

Sigh, island life
