The biggest and best news?
We got our washing machine back, alhumdulillah!
And then as icing on top of the cake, the repairman told us it is actually a washer and dryer combo.
OH HAPPY DAY!!!!!
Seriously, the clouds parted, the sun shined down, and angels started singing.
I’m so happy and I never thought I would say that about being able to wash clothes.
Zuzu is doing much better, even getting a little roly-poly as every time Mr MM walks by her empty food dish he thinks she’s starving and puts more food on it. Not that she is complaining, and she’s a growing kitten so she needs it, but I’ve told him the ration she is supposed to get each day and to not overfeed her.
She’s so cute, I adore her. She does this weird nursing thing though most times I pick her up and cuddle her. She will start doing the bread kneading thing with her paws and then she will take a little bit of my shirt in her mouth and start sucking. Its so adorable and really endearing but I’ve never had any cat do that to me before. I’m sure it has something to do with my becoming her “mother”, but before anyone thinks its because I took her away from her real mother too early, she is at least three months old (if not closer to four) and was eating solid cat food when I picked her up.
Anyways, she’s a little monkey and scared of nothing which has its disadvantages. Already once she got in trouble for shooting out the door when the washing machine delivery men were here. But other than that she is a great cat and I love her.
I need to buy her some toys. Any other Cairene pet owners have some suggestions for good stores to buy cat toys from? I don’t particularly care for most of the pet stores in Cairo as they keep their animals in disgusting conditions and run inhumane puppy mills. So please, reputable places only. Thank you!
Mr MM and I went and saw House Bunny last night, it was really entertaining. Certainly not wholesome family fun, but definitely a movie I enjoyed (and I have very low tolerance for stupid movies.)
My next post, I think, is going to be on restaurants in Cairo and the best places to go.
