Lesotho, Africa

News of the revolution has spread like wildfire, reaching another distant corner of the Earth. The benevolent image of Chairman Meow has appeared in Lesotho, a small enclave country encircled completely by South Africa.

Mountainous Slope, Lesotho, Africa

Advisors to Great Leader have learned that Lesotho was originally inhabited by Khoisan hunter-gatherers, and then replaced by Bantu-speaking tribes.

The area's prime natural resource is water, and it is chiefly exported to South Africa. Lesotho maintains historically close ties with the nation of Ireland. The reasons behind this should be obvious...

Great Leader Chairman Meow would like to visit the high altitude country personally, with it's first ski resort in the Maluti Mountains, but revolutionary duties prevent such indulgences currently. Great Leader hopes to work with the Clinton Foundation and the Gates Foundation in fighting HIV/AIDS in Lesotho. 29% of the Lesotho population is infected, the highest prevalence in any country in the world.

For now, Great Leader would also like to point out the untold ravages of FIV, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which like HIV has spread unchecked among the cats of the world. According to Wikipedia, "Approximately 11% of cats worldwide, and about 2.5% of cats in the USA, are infected with FIV. More than 90% of African lions in some zoos tested positive for the virus."

Chairman Meow considers it a travesty that condoms are not freely available to all creatures. Until they are, it is recommended that reasonable cats avoid "unfriendly biting cats" across the world.
