The diary of a Saudi man, currently living in the United Kingdom, where the Religious Police no longer trouble him for the moment.

In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.

Kittens, again 

A bit of a technical experiment, this.

I get asked quite a lot to post more kitten photos. What I've decided to do is instead to post some short (10 second) movies I made. They feature a feral cat who used to hang around our yard in Riyadh. To be precise, she used to turn up whenever she was pregnant, have her litter, wean them, and they would then all disappear back to their real territory, presumably around some neighborhood garbage skip. Then she would get pregnant, and turn up again.... We therefore called her "Serial Mom".

Here she is with one of the kittens. The temperature, as I recall, was about 120F. The sound you can hear is the sprinkler system. It's too hot to be maternal....

As you can tell, I'm not a great cameraman - hence the wild camera movements.
Here, "Serial Mom" is being left in peace.

But in this last one, it's definitely too hot to put up with the youngsters' fun and games, she's off!
