At last - freedom!

Our yoomens have built a shamba (garden/enclosure) at the back of our house in Mwadui. Now we kitties (me: Shadow, Ginger and Ambrose) can safely spend time outdoors - under supervision only says mum -  roll around in the sand, sniff all the wonderful smells and generally enjoy the fresh African air and sunshine!
Like Ambrose and I, Ginger enjoys rolling in the sand

Ambrose is still not too sure about all this new-found freedom! 

A local man came and erected an eight-foot high reed fence. Now we're safe from the dogs live in and protect the garden
Seeing as I'm spokesman for the kitties I added another photo of myself!

  6. Ahhh, it's nice to roam outdoors and be safe. Purrs!

  7. That was really a good idea and the cats look happy ! Ambrose will quickly get used to this new freedom !

  8. Everyone must feel happier now. You are a lucky lot of pusses to have Jo and Grant to rescue you and look after you.

  9. Is that Ginger I see eying the fence to climb it??Hahaa...Hard keeping a cat behind a fence...but it's a great idea!

  10. Beautiful cats! I'm glad they get to be outside now.

  11. I always love an extra photo of Shadow, but you know that already. LOL
    The reed fence doesn't look very sturdy to the western eye, and it looks like the cats might try to climb it, but I'm sure you and Grant know better than I do when it comes to African house cats, but you know I worry about them, just like any elderly aunt.
    The sunset in your previous post is magnificent!
    Luv, K
