This blog post is dedicated to cats. Because I adore cats.
When I was a kid, my family had a few pet dogs. At that time, I disliked cats.
I loved the loyalty of a dog. Their love for their masters is incomparable to your spouse. No matter what you do to a dog, they will never get angry at you.
Anyway, I developed allergy to dogs when I was about 15 years old. Very sudden. It’s strange, isn’t it? Majority of the sensitive people are allergic to cats instead of dogs!
As a result, I gradually find cats adorable.
The cat in the above picture is our princess at home. Her name is Meow. She was supposed to be named Chunky but as my mum finds it difficult to pronounce, she started to call the cat Meow.
Meow is a mixed-breed Persian. I don’t know why if she was an accidental kitten or a breed-for-profit, I am glad I brought her home in February 2016.
To cut the story short, Meow is hyperactive but she never broke anything in the house (unlike our dogs). Nonetheless, she behaved well by pooping and peeing in her delicate sand pool and she doesn’t ‘bark’.
I think our neighbours are secretly happy that we didn’t bring in any more dogs.
Of course cats have flaws. They are not responsive to humans. (Unless you have food)
One thing I note is that the cats in Johor are afraid of humans. Whereas the street cats in Singapore are very friendly. Why?
It’s also difficult to fully understand a cat. She may love you this second but attack you the next.
Once, my cat came next to my pillow, and purr. I thought she wanted my care so I patted her.
At first she looked like she enjoyed it. The next second, my hand magically transformed into a drumstick and she bit it hard and unforgiving.
Hurt like hell.
Bleeding, of course.
Pissed me off. It ruined my morning.
Cats spend most of the day sleeping.
Long before cats officially became a household pets, they hunt for survival.
So, they sleep to restore energy.
Now, most cat pets have constant stream of food coming. They don’t hunt to fulfill their hunger anymore. But they still retain the sleeping characteristic in the genes.
And they hunt out of curiosity (cockroach, lizard).
Another funny thing about my cat is that she only eats her cat food by Royal Canin. If you’re a cat owner yourself, you know that it’s an expensive brand…
At first, I like to buy toys for her, but she doesn’t seem to care. Instead, she prefers to play with tissue paper, feathers, wires, cockroach, etc etc… And her hobbies include bird-watching.
If you have the ability, perhaps you can consider having a cat? They sure add colours to your life. Just be a responsible owner.
Thanks for reading till this point.
