Can you ever imagine that a sheep was just sold for 80,000 Dinar in Kuwait? I know this is a special ‘virile’ sheep breed but come on I can do a lot with 80K. I was so curious to see how this 80,000 sheep looks like, luckily a friend was able to send me a video. Now what happens if this sheep dies suddenly? I guess that will be one massive loss.

I awoke in early morning and headed to the biggest K-Cats show in whole Middle East at the tent near Safir International Hotel. I love cats, always did, and believe there’s nothing more fun than seeing all those cute cats gathered in one place competing for the beauty crown. This year show is a lot more organized and there were over 111 participants compared to 68 last year, there were many breeds; Persians, British, Scotish, Ragdoll, American Shorthair but sadly no Turkish Van which has two colored eyes, also I didn’t know that Sphynx breed (furless) is the most expensive, they say they are smart.
I walked around the show and cuddled the cats, I don’t know why I don’t have a cat yet! I chitchatted with the organizers and the judges who flew all the way from the U.S about the show, they K-Cats is the first of its kind and was established a couple years ago, I was glad to know that they started working K’S Path to achieve their goals. Though it was surprising that most of those lovely cats were purchased from Friday Market! I hate how those butchers at Friday Market treat cats and have them trapped in those filthy cages! I also asked organizers if they have any plans for street cats and if they are planning to have a shelter for them instead of leaving them on the streets where they die under the wheels of speeding cars or hunger but unfortunately no solutions as of yet.
An Instagramer shared this snapshot that he says was spotted at a local bank. I know salaries for most governmental and private sector jobs were deposited by the end of the month but can anyone please tell me what this tomcat was trying to do?
Update: Turned out the snapshot was taken at one of Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank ATM machines.
I got email from K-Cats informing me that they are organizing 2nd Cat Show Contest in Kuwait, this is the first ever cats show in the whole Middle East. We covered the contest last year and seeing and cuddling all those cute cats was absolutely fun, there were many breeds such as Persians, British, Scotish, Ragdoll, American Shorthair with long and short fur and they were all competing for the crown, I wish I could see Turkish Van this time.
There will be pro judges to evaluate the cats based on the hair grooming, bone structure and attitude I suppose. Check my last year coverage [link]
