Tiny tiny kitten

This beautiful baby is only 2 weeks old...I saw him sucking desperately on a blanket in a cage at my vet...no-one there was prepared to bottle feed him. I'm still not quite sure what to do about that...just unbelievably uncaring. I took him home immediately & made the 2 apathetic vet assistants give me kitten formula & a feeding bottle. My amazing sons & I got to work, nursing him, massaging his tummy (ok that bit was gross as the massaging makes him poop etc as he can't do it alone) & we showered him with tons of loves & squeezes....what an outstanding little kitkat. Abandoned but a fighter. Today, 24 hours later, after I put out a Tweet about him, he went home with a new family who have promised to carry on where we left off. I miss him already...that face, it kills me :) *Honour The Small Creatures*

Cape Town

 

 

Car guards in Cape Town

For the uninformed, we have this bizarre phenomenon in Cape Town, called The Car Guard. For the most part they're completely unnecessary ~ they will 'watch' your car, even if you are sitting at a coffee shop, watching it yourself through a window. It's odd. And you don't have to pay them..don't bow to the bad vibe pressure. Just climb back in your car, smile & wave goodbye *

Haas, Bokaap

Lots of fabulousness at Haas, not just their coffee, obviously. Tretchikoff cushions, felt rabbits, plus much more. Check it out Tourist & Local Person ~ it will delight you ~ the food is delish as well. In Rose Street, Bokaap. @HaasCoffee & @HaasCollective

Loading Bay for Coffee

You know all about this place from my previous Tweets & posts...always a good option for a smooth flat white & a great menu.

De Waterkant, Cape Town

De Waterkant is a stunning area, between the Central City & Green Point, up towards the side of Signal Hill. It's one of the older parts of Cape Town, with cobbled streets, colourful, small homes, & beautiful guest houses. Loads of fab restaurants, coffee shops, clothing stores & more...one of my favorites, located in Hudson Street, is Loading Bay...superb coffee & an excellent menu.
