Bureaucratic bureaucrats bureaucratisizing and fucking up
As a closing note here’s an African “tail” for you: When you transport animals from one African county to another, your animal requires micro chipping and their inoculations have to be up to date (rabies and feline or canine general health shots). So we do all this at great cost I might tell you but we feel upbeat because at least the kitties do not have to go into quarantine unlike the poor doggies. We say goodbye to them and promise that they’ll only be holidaying at the Ndola SPCA for a short while. Right. Our babies arrive caterwauling like the sky is falling in and I greet them and do a head count (you do that all the time when you have seven cats) and low and behold just as I’m saying to Lixie (my grey cat) ‘Gee Lix, you’re looking very dark what’s up babe?’ if two little black strangeings don’t pop their paws out of the travel boxes They sent two black kitties in the place of Mama Roo (ginger) and Pushy (hello, white!). And their multi-paged travel documents could not have been checked once! Not that I cared about that I just freaked OUT. My daughter Ondria to my rescue (she made all the calls and tracked them down – my cel had just died). So the little black cats came on holiday to the Klein Karoo in
That’s all for now.
Love and light
