How to train a cat

I saw the most amazing thing yesterday. A well-behaved domestic house cat.

Actually, it was still a kitten, but it was house-trained already.

Because the owners live in a complex, they didn’t want the kitten wandering off on it’s own. They don’t have their own garden, and they’re worried that it would get lost, considering they’d only had it a week. So they had trained it so that it would not leave the patio.

I know my mother enjoys mixing tonic water with orange juice, but I’m not really into that one…

Do you have any other combinations for cold drinks that people might like?

Best Christmas Party Idea Ever

Need an idea for a Christmas party? It’s not an expensive Christmas party, though it definitely won’t seem like a CHEAP Christmas party

In South Africa, we don’t say barbeque, we say braai, (pronounced like “guy”, but with a “br” instead of a “g” ;-)), and a popular thing to do when having a lot of people around is to have a bring and braai.
