Willow’s Garden Antics, New Cat Job, and Flesh Wounds

It’s hard moving to a new city. I know that might sound silly as the whole premise of the last 8 years of my life has been about moving to new places, but what I know now is that when you’ve decided to stay in one particular place- it’s hard. The reality is that I have always had one foot out the door. The freedom of van life is such that anywhere and everywhere is your home. When you’re travelling and things get hard there’s always hope that the next town will be better, and with our campervan as our home, we have always had the freedom to move on at moment’s notice. Now we are renting a litt ..read more

It’s Willow’s birthday, and to celebrate, here is a quick video of Willow waking up from a nap! Who else has a cat that drools in their sleep? Oh Willow! You certainly are a silly cat. I can always count on you to cheer me up… and to nibble my toes when I’m a bit slow getting your dinner in your bowl! Here is to another year together, my best friend. I hope that there will be many more! More Posts Boarding your pets on the Spirit of Tasmania is horrible A seal, a lighthouse, and a lazy cat. Leaving It All Behind.. Again * * * We need your help!

Flat Cat Meow: A New Start in the City of Perth

I’m always amazed at how Willow adapts to new situations. On our travels, we are constantly in new environments and it’s impressive to see how she takes it all on and makes the most of every moment. So it wasn’t that much of a surprise when we moved into our new flat in Perth that she settled in right away.

Quite a bit of time has passed since our last post and it’s hard sitting down to put it all into words. Arriving in Perth has been a rollercoaster ride and honestly, not quite how we imagined it was going to be. However, as I write this from our campervan home with Willow asleep on the dashboard, the mood in the van is immeasurably more optimistic than it has been over the past month.

Video: Willow Meets some Chickens at Willowbrook

Here’s a little video for you of Willow meeting some chickens at the farm we are staying at. I was a bit worried one or the other might get pecked or pounced, but they seem not too bothered by each other! We are staying at Willowbrook farm and Willow enjoys exploring the old stockyard. She found it the purrfect spot to sharpen her claws on the old wooden fence. The place is very run down, but it’s still a nice place to stay not far from Perth.

Willow and the Space Cat in Carnarvon
Van Cat Meow
by Rich
4M ago
As we travelled down the coast having left Ningaloo Reef, we encountered vast desert plains of scrub, spinifex and red earth, not unlike the landscapes of much of our travels through arid outback Australia. So, when we arrived in the town of Carnarvon, it was like entering a desert oasis. The Gascoyne River, which begins 865km East near the Gibson Desert, finally flows into the Indian Ocean at Carnarvon, and it is here that something special happens. The hot climate and reliable water source has made this small town the food bowl of Western Australia. As we rolled into town, we passed by some ..read more

Willow Dribbles in her Sleep!

The one thing you should know about Willow is that if she’s asleep it means one of two things: she’s either snoring or dribbling. Fortunately, she’s absolutely adorable either way!

Six Years Apart: Willow Sitting on the Same Swing, a Tale of Nostalgia and Decay at Clements Gap
Van Cat Meow
by Rich
5M ago
For most of us, the excitement of travel is the feeling of visiting a place for the very first time. But for me, what I find most interesting about travel is the opportunity to revisit a place we have been to before. And when there’s been a 6 year gap in between those visits it becomes even more remarkable. In July of 2017, Willow and I visited a place called Clements Gap, South Australia. You won’t find it on any tourist brochures, in fact, most people would miss it if they happened to drive down the quiet road it’s situated on. But in April of 2023 we returned with Steph and what we found re ..read more

New cardboard box for Willow and some long awaited new shoes for me
Van Cat Meow
by Rich
5M ago
If shoes say a lot about a person then I’m not sure what mine were saying about me. Realising that one could quite plainly see my socks through the 10c piece size holes in the sides, I knew it was time for a new pair. ‘Surely they have a few months left in them?’ I told Steph. ‘No,’ was her reply! There’s not many shoe shops in the outback, believe it or not, so as we finally arrived in the town of Carnarvon I reluctantly splashed out on a new pair, and of course, a new cardboard box for Willow.
