Judy Gale's new home at the Village at Coorparoo

Judy Gale, little Miss Milly and big bully Harley live in a delightful three-bedroom unit on the ground floor of Building 1, The Village at Coorparoo. Erica, the 1890 King family home has been rejuvenated to become a community centre.

As it is too dangerous for the cats to go a roaming they were in a cattery and then locked in the unit for months. Since 13 April 2012 they have a 1.75 metre long, 2.4 metre wide Aussie Cat Enclosure, with a wee tunnel leading to a kitty litter container. They get into and out of their enclosure via a cat flap in my study window. It is left open 24/7 and Harley certainly goes outside at night, and they both go outside once the sun is up. Blonde Harley and brown little Miss Milly are happy in their Aussie Cat Enclosure home

Allowed to add plants to her planter box and with the help of her friend Jay, Judy Gale was much happier.

The Village cafe Baby Flute opened and had really yummy food and most enjoyable malted milks, iced coffees, other coffees and teas. Sadly it closed the Friday before Christmas. The Village Cafe has opened with Vivian Ting in charge. She makes yummy food, well worth a visit. She also has a cafe restaurant in the city Yi on Edward
