Critters and pets in Carmona_1
Donkeys, dogs, cats, birds and goats are the critters and pets I see most of in Carmona,
These pictures were taken five minutes walk from my house. Dani taught me the “critter of the day” concept, meaning one creature a day… Same donkeys appear on the street in this feature picture. They are my morning ‘promenade’ companions.
One of them in its natural habitat-shelter.
This pony also lives down the cliff at the end of the street.
Let’s talk about the dogs I meet in my daily promenade on Carmona’s cliff. Here is a French Bulldog.
This lady is one of the many Carmona inhabitants who adopt abandoned dogs: there are Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz (Andalusian wine-cellar rat-hunting dog). Good for the dogs! There are many associations in Carmona.
During the hunting period, abandoned “galgos” or hounds are also adopted
Most have to be cured as it is the case in the lower photo. There is a Dutch lady living in Carmona belonging to GREYHOUNDS RESCUE HOLLAND www.greyhoundsrescue.nl
One of the popular breed in Carmona is the Spanish Water Dog.
We met Manuel and Kenia his Spanish Water Dog. In the below photo is Kenia as a puppy- colour chocolate – and today’s Kenia at Los Almendrales playing with a cat. Manuel explained that these dogs as well as changing colour had skin in between their paws helping them to swim better.

Of the eight dogs of El Arrecife Viejo, these are two cute ones.
We conclude the dog section with a public show of Seville Guardia Civil’s dogs in Carmona.
This is Manuel the cabrero (the goat keeper) who prefers to feed a family of goats around Los Almendrales than staying at a bar. We love his critters.
Goats are all around carmona too. We love them
Coco is a typical indoor cat and she has the window and the three house patios to eat, play and move with ease. Coco is a family member.
All other cats here are outdoors, from street cats at Los Almendrales (below)
to a patio cat

Birds enchant us with their sounds in the early mornings and around sunset. They are our “free” critters
However tourists can watch the two stork nests and their families on the tower of Santa Clara Convent, Carmona
Carmona is rich in critters and pets. Other posts will come. However December being with us, let’s show our closing with winter dog wear.
