I am an absolute cat fanatic. I love animals in general. I can spend days on end watching wildlife and birdlife without getting bored at all. Cats are however extra special to me. All cats, but domestic cats more so because one can grow so much closer to them.

I know that Nelson Mandela signed into law one of the most liberal abortion laws in the world. This fills me with deep sadness. Millions of innocent babies have been killed in South Africa because of this law.
