So, because I love talking about my kitties, I thought I might introduce Sahara to those who don't know her. Sahara is my most recent kitty friend. She was rehomed to me following a business card I picked up at the Royal Easter Show in 2003. She's a beautiful cinnamon Abyssinian kitty. She only has one eye, she lost the other to a particularly bad bout for feline herpes (an upper respiratory tract infection) when she was just a wee kitty. Not that it has slowed her down at all - she is precision plus when it comes to catching things! Sahara is my youngest, born on the 28th of August, 2001. She came to me when she was 18 months old. She is really the cheekiest little cat I have ever met. But she is so sweet and loving, that she can get away with almost anything. She especially loves great big bear hugs, which gave her the nickname SaraBear or Bear. Also nicknamed Minx, Slinky, Cheeky, Pumpkin Belly or simply Sara for short.
Here are some photos of her for your viewing pleasure:
Sahara posing (she is the biggest poser), with the lady bug cat nip toy I got her for her 7th birthday.
Speaking of food... Christmas morning 2007, and Sahara thought she might join us for our family breakfast.
Sahara reads Veganomicon. What a very well read cat!
I still have two more kitties to introduce to you, and loads more kitty stories to tell, so I hope you enjoy the cats - there's lots more to come!

And as always, some vegan food porn for the folks at home. Digging into The Vault again!
This is a delicious vegan indian feast I made from (yes!) Veganomicon. To the right are Samosa Stuffed Baked Potatoes, and on the left is Sauteed Spinach and Tomatoes with basmati rice. In the middle there is a bowl of 5 Minute Mango Chutney. Delicious!
