The Language of Ibiza

Whilst the official spoken and written language in Spain is Castilian.  In Ibiza the official language is Catalan with a regional dialect called Ibicenco or Eivissenc (mainly in Ibiza Town or Eivissa to give it its correct title).

Care 4 Cats Ibiza

Care 4 Cats Ibiza

Whether you avoid them or fall in love with them, on holiday in Ibiza you cannot help but notice the amount of cats around the island.

Most are feral, roaming the streets and the countryside looking for food. Many are sick and many produce litter after litter of kittens increasing the Ibizan cat population exponentially.
