Official: I’m an eccentric, says Kanal D

Another little TV slot – this time on Kanal D – which has brought some more enthusiastic Romanians to my digital door. Thank you, Kanal D!

I love the caption to my silliest photo (can you see I’m typing in ski mitts?): “She gave a kingdom for a Romanian hamlet.”

George Cat, Papi Dog, my neighbour Georgi and her two cows all appear. Let me know what you think…

 

 

Romania: passions and pet peeves

260x70px-logo

In my piece in the second issue of OZB (O Zi Buna) magazine, expats (aka migrants) tell me what they love and hate about their chosen home. Food, traffic, music, steps, bureaucracy, architecture, people, people and people…  Includes contributions from Shajjad Rizvi (left) and Karam Alsaty.

Transylvanian kittens need a home

Can you give the two little kits a loving home? They’ve been with me for three weeks, and are now tame (they were feral when we rescued them) and promise to be beautiful, healthy, affectionate and playful cats. Mango (girl) and Fig (boy) are very different characters, but both sweet and both have Ferrari motor purrs.

I will take them to the vet for a complete check-up and neutering, so you’ll have no costs apart from transport and future care – if you’ll take them both.

I live near Brasov so can bring the cats to you if you’re local, or meet you somewhere convenient if not.

If you’d like to give them a happy future with you, please drop me an email – abbspepper@gmail.com
