Welcome to Life on GentleCycle
Our rambling life with two old cats
Welcome Gentle Readers,
We are Susan Carey and Jamie Wyant. In 2017 we sold our Salem, Oregon home and most of our possessions and moved with five elderly pets to Valencia, Spain.
After Lizzie, the best dog ever, and two of our four cats died, it was time to try something different. That's when we decided to ramble the world with one daypack, one suitcase, and one cat each.
We write about our rambles, personal experiences, and what we learn from the people and places we encounter. We hope to influence you, our gentle readers, to consider your own journeys, whether stationary or mobile, internal or external.
Meet Our Two Old Cats
Susan spent the last 16 years of her career at Willamette Humane. Sometimes we had 13 or so cats counting the litters we fostered in our guest bathroom. Jamie was such a softie that he almost always chose one or two foster kittens to add to our family. That's how Ricco (19 yrs) and Teej (going on 21 yrs) came to be members of our family.
