Cats on Tuesday: The Lovely Monkey Valley Cats

At Monkey Valley Resort in Cape Town where we are housed and where we are equally having our training by Association of Progressive Communication (APC).This is Feminist Technology Exchange (FTX) and I am getting trained on how to use Wireless and Mobile Technology for Activism. I will blog more about this later but now I will like to talk about the wonderful Monkey Valley cats I have met.

My challenge has being the food. They don't have the different spicy, sweet, fantastic Nigerian dishes with the unique tastes. So I kinda manage with what I have got and while at it, I saw a wonderful black and white cat strolling by in the lunch room. I was so happy! Then I saw a second cat. Waoh, I have got no reason to miss my cats too much any more.

They move freely around and so are the two cute dogs. I am so attached to them now but no one could give me the cats names. I may give them Nigerian names before I check out tomorrow for another program. Here are the pictures of my treasures:
Yeah, the 2 lovely looking cats and the cute dog. I am so happy have got the cats here. So visit Gattina blog for more on cats on Tuesday

It looks as if your visitors feel at home ! They look very good and well fed too. They must belong to somebody. We have also visitors a black and a grey one. And there is even no fight with my cats !

Standtall! Just like me, you are now photographing cats wherever you go!

And what fine cats, too! The little dog could learn much from them. Perhaps they will teach the little dog how to purr.

Hey all, sorry for not responding to all your comments one on one. I made a mistake of letting it accumulate, now I feel lazy!

My Passion, my focus, the change that I want to see in the world - is my propellent factor.
