All is well this side. It has been very cold lately, we had lots of rain and finally the Bushman’s River is flowing, so I’m sure that is good news to all here. It hasn’t flowed for the past three years.

Cats are doing very well, they’re looking good and they are eating well. I do have my concerns when it comes to Aslan and Stella – they are the oldest cats we have at the moment, they at 22 years old, however so far so good.

I have started to do some work on the camps, slowly getting there.

Sinbad looks good. He makes me laugh during feeding. He really behaves like a wild lion, I think, the way he likes to growl and shake his food around, and when I call him by his name he will get all protective and literally sit on his food and start eating. He will be very rough with his food as if he is killing it for the third time.

I love him to bits — he is The Man!
