October 5 - 17, 2007, pack your catnip mice and join likeminded souls on the Friends of Roman Cats Cats & Culture tour! You'll fly into Venice, where you'll see some sights and then visit the DINGO cat sanctuary on the Lido. In Florence you'll go to the Romanesque church of San Miniato al Monte -- one of my favorite places on the face of this earth, BTW - and see the city cat sanctuary there. You'll also go on the rounds with a Boboli Gardens cat-food lady as she feeds about 60 of the little freeloaders. You'll see a cutting-edge cat sanctuary in Arezzo . . . what do you mean, you're not buying tickets yet?
