Watch out! We were fortunate that this wild cat was happily resting in the beautiful Japanese Gardens of Buenos Aires. In all seriousness this is a really nice place to visit as are Buenos Aires and Argentina. For a different place to travel to Argentina has much to offer.

Cool Cuban Cat – Sancti Spiritus Cuba
This cat was not phased by the people coming and going into this building which I think was one of the new shops being operated in the city of Sancti Spiritus in Cuba. Truly a cool cat. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk
Word on the Water – A Tale of Corporate Greed – Private Eye 1380
David v Goliath might be the next Hollywood blockbuster, they must be making it after having made Noah etc, but in the real world Goliath Inc, Goliath Corp and Goliath PLC kill and trample all over David the good guy. And here is just another tale of the little guys losing out to the corporate monsters. So let’s start with a couple of photos to illustrate who the good guys are. This is the canal boat, Word on the Water, a floating bookshop and poetry venue. And this is the cat that lives on the boat. The photos were taken near one entrance of Paddington station on the Grand Union Canal. In an article titled, “Paddington bare”, Private Eye explains that the Canal and River Trust have selected British Land to take two new permanent trade moorings and you can guess where :-). They plan to open a floating coffee shop and “Welcome centre” in the two moorings. The article adds that there are already more than a dozen coffee outlets in the area including one on a canal boat. So huge evil corporation that has spent £470 million (how much of that is debt?) buying up the local area versus a small independent business and cultural space. It doesn’t take a genius to work out the ending and it isn’t a Hollywood one. Story copyright of Private Eye. Buy it, you will be amazed.
Cat in a flower pot – resting on a hot summer’s day
We don’t have a very large garden but it is quite varied and there are shrubs next to some of the fences. In one corner a previous owner had left a flower pot but nothing much really grew in it and so on this occasion we found this resting cat obviously taking a nap during what must have been a very stressful day :-). You can see more of our photographs on our Junagarh Flickr site or our website http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk. If you like you can even buy some of our work.
Argentine Wild Cat Guards the Bonsai Trees in the Japanese Gardens of Buenos Aires
Being on guard all day is very tiring work especially for a cat so why not take an afternoon nap. Only don’t let the owner know or you might not get fed. The Japanese Gardens are very tranquil and a beautiful place to visit if you go to Buenos Aires, that in itself is a very good place to start your exploration of South America. You can see and order many more of our photographs on out Flickr site or our own website http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
A Cat’s Life – Another Lazy Sunday
What better way of spending a sunny Sunday if you are a cat then stretched out on a neighbour’s garden bench, in this case ours. Loco, a pretty grey and white cat lives next door but has taken over our garden as part of the territory. Perhaps we should take some tips from cats on how to relax as they seem to have it completely worked out. See more of our photography on our website www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
