Coco and Lobo are our longest standing residents, and maybe even the inspiration behind the property name (although local folklore is a little hazy on that one). The page administrator has been granted a rare and exclusive interview with these notoriously elusive feline beauties. Transcript follows.
Admin: So, which one of you is Coco and which is Lobo – how can we tell you apart?
Lobo: [contemptuous glare and licks paw]
Coco: Darling I know it’s terribly confusing because people hear “Coco” and think ‘oh, that’s got to be the brunette’. But actually I’m tortoiseshell don’t you know? So much more exotic than just plain old black. And you know how the saying goes, ‘tortoiseshell’s have all the luck’, (although between you and me, don’t say that that too much around Lobo she’s a bit sensitive about that black cat superstition thing). Anyways listen darling, I’ll give you a tip to keep things straight. Lobo is actually Spanish for wolf, and wolves are black. So if you just remember that you should have no problems at all
Coco: [aside]: Oh, they’re not? Oh well darling. Whatever. She’s hooman what does she know.
Admin: So, you’re allegedly the first and longest standing residents of Cocolobo Resort. What is it about Cocolobo that you like so much?
Lobo: [yawns and closes eyes]
Coco: Darling. First of all, there’s no allegedly about it. We have de-fin-ite-ly been the first residents of Cocolobo. Everyone who has come after us are a bit fly-by-nighty if you ask me. A lot of coming and going. Not that I want to sound judgmental darling, but you hoomans always seem to be in a bit of a rush. Where’s the fire? Anyway, we have a few of the more regular hoomans pretty well trained at this point. No sense starting that over somewhere else. Hoomans are not too bright, frankly it’s been a bit of a trial getting them up to scratch. It’s exhausting – that’s why we have to nap so much.
Coco: Oh right. And also, the beds are comfy and most of the hoomans forget to close their doors all the way. But then again, what more can you expect from a creature who sleeps all night? Really….
Admin: I think it’s interesting that you seem to have a sort of British accent Coco. What’s that all about?
Coco: Darling, I come from the Caymans don’t you know?
Lobo: [hisses softly, narrows eyes and flattens ears]
Coco: [casting eyes heavenward] oh sweet baby jesus I am NOT being pretentious. It’s just a fact. Darling, jealously is really not your colour.
Admin: So finally, what advice would you give our future guests on arriving to Roatan?
Coco: Pack tinned mackerel. Trust us. Too many vacations have been ruined without it.
Admin: Lobo? Any final comments for our visitors?
Lobo: [stands, yawns, stretches and stalks out to the garden].
