    The only catts I have seen in the wild were lawrenceana, which looked so perfect it was difficult to believe they rrally were wild, although there was no doubt in my mind.
    I have been promised a respite from my carer duties by some family, ( looking after my wife
    has been pretty well full time for several years now -she has a terminal lung disease illness ) and it is almost 2 years since I last had a break. I have been looking at trying to see catts in the wild, and have found one chap ( who seems to be based at Tampa bay in US ) who visits Brazil several times a year and takes small parties - 3 or 4 people, but currently I am waiting for him to mention actual dates so that I can try to nail this down.
    Thanks Geoff for additional info and compliment.....so sorry about her.
