That taught me to stick to the forest and leave the manor alone...red eyes peered at me from the dark depths, but that was all...and my fear was appeased. Then I was able to take these photographs amid the swamps, mushrooms and trees...

Running after minikat or even having her follow me helps me discover places I wouldn't probably see otherwise. And so I've hung laundry to dry outside in the village, I've rested in a tent and round a campfire, come across elephants, zebras, deer, crocodiles, toads, giraffes, rested at the eagle outlook, taken a balloon ride...
Here's just a snippet of Africa virtual sim:

I didn't know what to do; just in case I fed him (actually it may be a she -will have to check) and because I know she needs the exercise I asked her to follow me. She did for a while (slowly as..well you know!) but then started to draw away so I decided to send her to the den. I'm looking forward to her being strong enough to climb the tree she covets so much.

I've just left minikat in his den for the third and last time today. things were better this time. He admitted to being tired and hungry and accepted to go to sleep rather than crawl aimlessly about...He also let me feed him. I think those are the first steps. he's a cub and cubs need food and sleep, and are curious. He keeps wanting to climb a tree, always in vain...Here's a photo of him (finally!) sleeping.

I wonder where he is and how he's doing...I miss him, but perhaps it's only natural...meerkats are wild animals. We were friends but after two months he's all grown up and perhaps needs to explore on his own. Has he found a female meerkat and started a family? There are babies around...
I've cried and felt lonely with out him but need to accept it's part of life. I've adopted a second meerkat (minikat -I know I'm sooo original with names!!) and he's very different from Kat. Kat followed me almost from day 1; minikat is much more playful in that: he will say Yip and start sneaking away...I hope we get to be friends.

In order to explain the lack of claws here, it's up to you to decide whether he was tired and not used to hunting, not angry anymore but playful, or just such a gifted hunter he didn't need to use claws at all!! (we know he hadn't been de-clawed, which is just plain cruel and shouldn't happen to any cat or living clawed organism)

Thrushes were common in that area. Kitty smelled the air and listened intently to their songs. After a while,with perked-up ears, he noticed that there were different tunes...One tune he found irresistible...so he straightened his whiskers and clattered his teeth, threw his ears backwards, ready to catch his prey ....With bared nails his paw darted forwards to pin the bird...
Now, before we know what happened to Kitty and the bird, let's go and see which bird he wanted so badly to catch, and which tune it sung. Follow me into the woods and let's play a game...Can you guess which bird Kitty wanted to get?

So he decided to take matters into his own..errm...paws and started a journey towards Mouse -looking for that fosforescent green background looming between this world and a so-far-unchartered one (as far as Kitty was concerned anyway).
Where to start? Kitty started treading softly, carefully onto the light layer of snow in his own garden...slowly, tentatively, got through the front gate into the street...

As long as we're on the road looking for a psychic...

Who could have predicted that the url on the poster would turn out to be a dead link?

FOAF= Friend Of A Friend
We don't always need to make suitcases and use maps to embark on journeys...just think of all the journeys that are possible by connecting to others.

Today the weather's perfect as it can get, not the slightest hint of rain in the air. We get off the coach at the pier and there's your hustle and bustle of people waiting for the next boat tour, gladly killing time with snapshots and introductions and tales of the previous day and our new and fleeting everyday lives.
And when we're back on the coach chatting and snacking we look at our photos and I see the beginning, when the true oath was made, in a picture gracefully captured by Pearl:
