Update on our mum's activities

Hi Bozo and all my mum's blog readers. 

This is Ambrose again and if you think my mum hasn't been around too much this week, we three cats have found out why! She and the four other expat ladies on camp having been very busy for the past few months making toys. Yes, toys. I heard her tell dad that next week they're all going to the School for the Blind in Shinyanga to deliver these toys with cold-drinks/sodas, cookies, cupcakes and lots of other goodies. 

Mmm. I don't mind my mum being out of the house so regularly if that what she's doing. 

Anyway, I found a few photos on her laptop of some of the toys. AND there was a photo of her friend's cat lying near the toys. By the look on his face, it seems as though he doesn't want anyone else to have the toys. When mum comes home, Ginger and Shadow sniff at her skirt hem - they can smell that cat. Ooh!

Ginger sniffs mum's skirt which has the other cat's scent on it!

Shadow has a turn at sniffing mum's skirt!

I'm young and not so tense about other cats' smells!

This is mum's friend's cat guarding some of the toys to be taken to the School for the Blind

These are a few of the dozens of toys

Pretty boxes, bangles and brooches which they made for the older girls at the School for the Blind

Aw, what a cute kitty picture

  1. Your Mum sure has been busy doing kind things for other people but she still loves you very much.

  2. You're right, Ambrose. If your mom has been with the other ladies making toys for blind children, it's not bad. In fact, it's good!
    Your mom's friend's cat looks like he would fit in well with you three, but I don't suppose he'll come visiting. Lindy says she's an orange colour, too, and would also fit in well, but dogs from Canada seldom travel to Africa. She did travel from eastern Alberta to western British Columbia this month, though. It was fun.
    Hugs to all,
    Love, Kay and Lindy
