Things that happen

A simple thing like waking up unusually early one day can change your life forever, or at least for the life span of a cat. Here’s what happened one beautifully crisp morning in December.

Decided to take Amu driving at 7am as the stretch of road where I teach her is relatively car-free and less intimidating then.

In the parking area of our apartment building rang out the forlornly incessant mewing of a decidedly small cat. The mysterious mewing kitty was hiding in the space between the top of the wheel and the chassis of our car, rendering us incapable of driving away without getting it out first.

Seeing us standing around helpless, the chowkidar fetched a stick to get the invisible noisemaker to jump off and run out. What emerged was a tiny grease-covered creature of indeterminate colour and scared blue eyes. I picked her up to stop her from running under the car again, and after ten minutes of confused debate decided to put her in our courtyard for the time being to keep her safe.

When we returned from our driving session, the tiny kitten was quietly curled up behind one of the potted plants, but ran out and started mewing again when she saw us. She was obviously hungry and cold and infested with fleas, and there was no choice but to clean her up and feed her and keep her warm….

      Your comment makes me feel a lot better about all the cat troubles I brought on to my head after this little one entered my life πŸ™‚

    I can already tell there will be heartbreak in this story. Are you going to make me cry? I am a crybaby when it comes to furry ones…

      Hopefully your tears will only be caused by side-splitting laughter Heather πŸ˜‰ More soon…! πŸ™‚

    It is so good to hear from you, Munira. Your kind act towards the kitten will be noted at some higher place, I’m sure.

      Just followed my natural instincts Peter! I’ve always been a sucker for helpless kittens since I was a little girl πŸ™‚
      Good to be back in the blogosphere, hope you and Aunty Uta are in the best of health. Must catch up with your respective blogs soon, though you will soon learn what has kept me rather preoccupied of late!

      She’s grown to be a darling, joyful and curious little cuty. Love her to bits!
