Back here in Mwadui, I wrote about our Sunday outing to nearby Shinyanga on Sunday. While the men waited at the Butiama, our driver, William took me around town where I did a little shopping. We also stopped at Amazing Grace shop which sells household appliances and many kitchen items such as crockery, cutlery, plasticware, ornaments, bathroom and kitchen linen and much more.
It's also at this shop where I adopted a cat in April 2012. I named the cat Joy. I've been taking (or sending with Chef Paulo) canned food and kitty kibbles once a week for the past two years and will continue to do this for as long as we live in Mwadui. Grant and I also arranged for our vet from Mwanza to administer the necessary annual inoculations and of course, my kind husband foots the bill.
Sunday I was thrilled to see that Joy, who only lives indoors, never venturing out, looking very healthy. Of course, she always hears my voice as I greet the proprietor, Jackson and his staff at the front of the shop. Joy comes running from the back of the shop and rubs against my ankles until I walk to the back to feed her. On Sunday I added a worm tablet to her food so she'll be fine for another while.
The funniest thing is that because I always refer to Amazing Grace as the Paka Shop, every expat and every driver calls this shop by that name!
Joy looks up and meows as I call her for a photo
Joy digs in and unknowingly ingests the deworming meds I mixed into her food
Jackson, prorietor of the Paka Shop (aka Amazing Grace) poses proudly with his daughter who has just joined his company
I always leave extra cat food and kibbles which last for the week until Paulo or I return.
