Meeting Felix the Donkey and Daisy the Kitten by Wiley

This is ACE which means Animal Care in Egypt.  It is an animal hospital in Luxor, Egypt that cares for dogs, cats, donkeys, horses and sometimes cows, water buffalos and camels.  They provide free care to local working animals and pets. 

This is Felix the playful donkey.  He picks up a rope and swings it around.  He gets excited and wants to play.  He is an orphan with club feet.  His donkey friend was wounded by a wall falling on its back.  He could not walk for several days but now is starting to walk again.

This is a picture of two baby orphan donkeys.  One of their mothers died in a fire.  They are both 4 months old.

This is Daisy.  She is a one-eyed kitten.  She is also an orphan. Whenever the donkeys make noise, she gets scared and crawls up on your shoulder.  We got to pick out her name.  I wish we could keep her and take her with us on our travels.

We found a praying mantis in one of the donkey stalls.  I picked him up from under the door and he crawled up my arm.  He flew away and then we found him again and he crawled on my shoe and up my leg.

If you would like learn more, or to donate money or supplies to help wounded and sick and animals you can go to ace-egypt.org.uk to help.

    Oh-oh, looks as if Daisy immediately found Mama Beth. Felix the Donkey, and the two baby donkeys, look so sweet. Mac, I love the photo of the praying mantis on your head!
