Cats of Mexico

Cats in Mexico, A Story in Pictures of Our Furry Pals

We love animals. When we moved to Mexico in 2013 we left behind a cat and a dog. We found them good homes but I hated to leave them. They were part of our family and I still miss them.

Cats in Mexico, A Story in Pictures of Our Furry Pals

We had a few pets since moving here… cats, a rabbit, ducks, chickens, and a dog. Some of them died, some of them ran away, and we had to find the rabbit a new home. Right now we have a dog, two cats, and two guinea pigs. They are all healthy and happy.

Our cats are best friends. Rocky Balboa is the brown tabby and Starbucks is the white siamese mix. We found Rocky at a friend’s house. He was a street kitten living off scraps and under a jeep. He was very friendly and purred nonstop. He is a great cat for the kids with his easy going personality. Rocky talks, (meows), with me all the time and he will sleep by my side all day if I stay in bed.

Starbucks was given to us by a friend who couldn’t care for him. His mom didn’t care for him and the other cats were mean to him so we adopted him. Starbucks has an annoying meow. You would think he is dying when in reality he only wants inside the house. He loves Rocky, his big brother cat. Starbucks will search the house meowing for Rocky when he can’t find him.

They are both neutered, have all their shots, are dewormed, and flea free. As you can guess vet visits are cheaper in Mexico as well. Both boys even have collars with little bells on them so we know where they are and what they are doing. They destroy my flowers, poop in my plants, play with clean laundry on the line, and eat anything accidently left on the kitchen counter. We still love them. And T-Rex, the dog, does too. He isn’t lonely anymore when we leave the house.

Meet our cats in Mexico :-) Signing off, Tina

Rocky is the best big brother to Starbucks. They are hiding from the rain.

We named him Starbucks because he looks like the foam on a latte 😊

  1. Love both of your kitties, and the photos with your kids are adorable! Let me suggest breakaway collars for the cats. The clip will come undone if the collar is caught on fence, in a bush, whatever, and reduces the risk of strangling. PetsMart has a basic one for $4 US; you should be able to find one in Mexico. Give the kitties some rubs for me!
