Mommy Kitty

Mommy kitty has decided to adopt us as her family. She's one of the strays that can be found at my apartment. There are two or three that would occasionally enter the apartment complex from the housing area outside.

She's a mommy. Gave birth to three absolutely adorable kittens a few weeks back but the kittens were taken away (I suppose) last week. One night I was checking the kittens sleeping soundly with their mommy at a plant pot reserved by my neighbour for them outside his house, the next morning the kittens were gone. I hope they were taken by a good family.

Anyway, back to the mommy.

This cat has somehow managed to spot our home and since two (or was it three?) weeks ago, would wait for us in front of the lift. Once the door open and she saw us, she would go running (no sauntering, this cat runs. FAST!) and headed straight to our apartment front door.

If the front door is left open, she would simply saunter in and acted like she's entering her home.

Adui.

Anyway, we feed her once a day. Each night.

That's probably why she waits for us to come home anyway.

Sometimes, if she's hungry in the morning, we'll see her come bounding when she hears us sliding the grill open. Damn sharp ears lah.

She's good at listening to the sound of kibbles shaken in the plastic container. If she's nearby and hear one of us shaking a container of dry cat food, she'll run towards us in a jiffy!

Sometimes, she'll run with us to our car when we head out in the morning.

Now, if only I can train her to run with me. That'd be so cool, eh? Not that I haven't tried! LOL

    2. There are for dogs, even here in Malaysia. Too bad no one need to "walk/run" their cats otherwise we can have a run too. ;)

  6. My parents fed some of stray cats around our quarters twice a day, in the morning and in the evening around 5.30pm. We fed them rice with deboned mackerels and some cat food too... I helped them once in a while. Love to see them scurrying towards the feeding spot under the stairs... ;D

    1. It is heartening that there are plenty of good, kind people feeding strays (both cats and dogs).

      But at the same time, don't you feel it's also quite disheartening that there are strays? What happen to their owners??????????????? :-(

  7. That is really nice your family is feeding her. Are there feral cat organizations in your country? It might be good to see if they can help get her fixed so she doesn't have more kittens. It's better for girl kitties since they can have health problems if they aren't fixed and it helps keep less kitties from having to live like that.

  12. I love cats. Dogs? Meh. Cats rule!

    There are many stray cats in Tokyo, but you often see signs requesting people not to feed them. Not sure why -- the authorities could be worried that it might attract more cats?

    Homeless men sometimes adopt stray cats. That's one of Tokyo's iconic images to me: homeless man and homeless cat providing comfort to each other.

    Your little cat is a sweetie. Does she allow you to pet her? If yes, give her a scratch underneath her chin for me. ^^

    1. I guess the authorities discourages feeding strays to not encourage people to dump their pets knowing that the pets will get fed anyway? O.O

      She does like to bear her teeth & look scary & all that, but yeah... She purs and be petted too. loves to rub herself against our legs too. ^_^

      Hmmm... Sounds like someone familiar. :-P

    2. This is so true. I saw some beggars in Kyoto who sat on benches and fed the stray cats lovingly. Our beggars in KL won't bother! They might kill the cats and make stewed cats!!!

    3. Some beggars might get offended Anay!

      I thought our beggars come in syndicate one? No need eat stewed cats la.

  13. Muahahahahaha! You just cracked me up!!
    This cat sounds like your "daughter" and would leech itself to you. She has shown signs of running DNA like yours. Just open the door and invite her in officially lah. Soon Mak Glam also have Small Kucing or shall I call it Glam Kucing!??

    1. Ermm... As I may be tempted to pity her and allow her in, I don't need the extra responsibility. Cat hair in the house is no fin to deal with!

  14. I love cats but I have been chasing one ginger Persian mix out of my house everyday. That pussy loves to nap in my house during the day to admire Anay's flowers and plants but why always pooh in my garden only. Anay no like and would hose it away with water and sticks!!! Shoooo!

    I could not figure out which house owner kept this stupid cat in my neighbourhood as there are some 10 persian cats roaming!!!!!! Shooooooo!

    1. We used to have a cat pooping at our front door too. So we had to put a screen on the grill to prevent the cat from entering.

      So troublesome. :-(
