FriendlyFriday-The-Alternative

 

 

 

About five or six years ago were were offered

the opportunity to purchase land in the area

that was to become

South Africa’s

Greater Kruger National Park.

The idea was to build a lodge on it

and cater for the tourist trade.

Being on a Safari high….it was tempting.

The set up cost would have cleaned us out

and after living with empty pockets in the 1990s,

we do like to have a dollar in our pockets.

 

However, every now and again I wonder…..

for just a split second

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Smudge

~~~~~

Smudge is/was a very timid rescue cat when

we purchased him a few days prior to Christmas 2018.

Still is afraid of the new things in life.

 

During the winter Smudge and Taji

have become good friends

and gradually Smudge has been

following Taji over near our house.

This (Sunday) morning Smudge

came to within 5 or 6 metres

of the verandah and posed

while I captured this photo.

It still doesn’t take much to get him bounding

back to his home, however, he is getting better.

Perhaps he should be called

Big, Brave Puss

instead of Smudge.  🙂
