Medina cats at Eid

Moroccans will tell you that at the time of the Eid sheep slaughter, coming up this week, there are no cats on the streets of the medina.

Superstition has it that all cats go to Mecca at this time ....

True or not, one avid blog-reader reports that there was a cat waiting in line at the Ryan Air desk at Fez airport tonight. On its way to Mecca, no doubt.
