When we arrived in Desenzano del Garda, it was late at night and humid. Once we arrived at our farm stay, an adorable little kitten darted across the sidewalk! The owner told us in his minimal English that there were four "small cats!" The word for "kitten" was something I quickly learned in Italian, "gattino."
Of course, I loved all the animals: horses, sheep, roosters, chickens, a dog, a cat, and the kittens!
