Morocco Monday

I'm so excited! My series, Morocco Monday, was mentioned in a very famous blog: Global Voices Online. Many Moroccan felines are being featured there.

Welcome to Morocco Monday. Today we visit the "fortified" city of Ait Benhaddou, a picturesque, citadel like village on the side of a mountain. It lies along the caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech. Ait Benhaddou was named a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1987, and several films have been shot there, such as Lawrence of Arabia and The Man Who Would Be King.


Here we will meet several very important felines running the citadel.

First: The Art Critic

Wait! How many Art Critics are there????
Here we have: The General Manager of the Shopping Bazaar
And The Shadow Cat
Last, we meet this feline. I don't know his official title. He was a bit secretive. So maybe he is Chief Palm Tree Inspector, or A SPY!!! See he is spying on poor ol' Walt!
Wow, our fellow felines in Morocco pretty much run the place!

Luv,
Skittles, The Huntress

I never knew the kitties in Morocco held down such important jobs! They certainly are very busy.

Those cats have some very important jobs! Congratulations on being mentioned in Global Voices Online, too.

Kitties in Morocco sure are busy. I think I will stick to my busy schedule of eating and sleeping.

That looks like such a beautiful place - and it's even cooler that it's run by cats!!!
