I mentioned about them earlier, so here are more of them. I don't have much details on them, but they stay on the other side of the country, where we will eventually be flying to.

Pics, after they were both spayed.

KIKI attacked by 6 huge dogs.

I haven't introduced them here.. but here are TIGER (calico left side) & KIKI (mostlywhite on right side)

It's Saturday morning, which means I would still be in bed by 8 am or even beyond that =). However, I got a call from my mom at about 8 am, telling me that KIKI had been admitted to the vet. I was surprised of course, a lot of things ran to my head as I asked her , 'why?'. My thoughts were simple, she might've eaten something wrong therefore vomit or diarrheal, she went outdoor and probably ate grass that had been treated, or she could've injured herself from playing or jumping around. I thought those were bad enough reasons to get treated for.

To my horror suprise, she told me that KIKI had been attacked by 6 huge dogs. I would say my mom was probably kidding, but are you crazy to be kidding about such things?!!

At home there are two cats KIKI and TIGER (which I shall introduce here soon). They're both kept in doors, but of course they're so curious about outdoor as anyone would be, if you're seldom allowed out. So they would take the chance to go out, if they find the any window or doors open. then they would run round teasing you as you chase after them. Irritatingly they may even go on the road right in front of the house, rolling on the road ( I guess because we didn't have that kind of rough surface in door), eyeing at whoever it was that was given the task to chase after them.

Anyhow, this morning KIKI managed to go out, without anyone noticing, and the gate to the house was wide open (due to some construction work going on at the back of the house), enabling anything to go in and out, KIKI out and dogs going in perhaps. Mom was in the kitchen, when she heard noises and saw KIKI running to the backyard, chased by 6 huge dogs. She aimed to climb up a manggo tree that we had at the back of the house (smart KIKI), and my mom witnessed the dogs pulling her back down with their paws. Without any second thoughts, my mom screamed and ran for KIKI and just grabbed her into safety, may I add without even thinking that it was actually 6 huge dogs. Fortunately the dogs halted any movement as they heard my mom screaming out. and so immediately KIKI was taken to the vet, and had to be left there until this afternoon so that they can have a thorough check up on her injuries.

She was still conscious, she was angry and frightened (a good sign I hope, at least she still had the energy to express that) and her obvious injury was a 2 inch cut on the side of the tummy, exposing flesh. Errr.... I hope that's enough. But according to mom, the vet's gonna shave her and see if there's any bites, because bites would puncture a whole-like cut, and thus it would be deeper, but less obvious.

This is such a horror story that never in my head would've existed until today. I hope for KIKI's best well being. My sister hasn't been told, and we're gonna have to make sure the news don't reach her anytime soon or perhaps even later 'cause it's not gonna be pretty.

Errrmmm..... We wondered.... where in the world did these big dogs came from? There are stray dogs in the housing area but usually they hang out many blocks away from our house. And there are soooooo many stray cats around, and never before did we witness any cat chased like that or even attracted the dogs to come. and what did the dogs intend to go with KIKI? what a horror suprise for my Saturday morning.

MICHIKO neutered?-just my babbling-

MICHIKO neutered? Yes, he is neutered. By why? Errmmm...

It had been kinda controversial (nah I'm exaggerating....) when it comes to MICHIKO neutered. Well, here is to clarify, reason it out, make myself feel better, and get rid of guilt or whatever it may be.

Yes, he's neutered, and yes I sent him to, just because I want him to be neutered. There's no reasonable reason and I 'just' want him to be neutered. It's a preference that I have for my cats.

So what say you?
It's not humane. I'm being selfish for wanting to keep one for myself only. It's a sin. It's a stupid act for neutering him, as I can get more of his cuteness. There's just nothing reasonable. Isn't it.

Well, I believe it's a difficult concept to accept. It was for me in the beginning, so I can understand and thus when I don't feel like it, I just keep it to myself, smile and let you think whatever you want to. Why? Because before you get the concept, there's lots to argue and debate about and if I just don't feel like going through all that, I'll keep quiet. It's all about insight peoples. If you have it, you have it, if you don't then you just can't be helped.

I do feel bad when people throw things like that towards me. all those stuff about not being humane, selfish for not sharing his cuteness, a sin that it may be, they get into me and make me think twice... I try to keep my head up, as I've decided that for my cat after considering risks and benefits and really I intend it for the welfare of the cat.

BUT if you could just give it some thoughts then just maybe you'll understand. Frankly speaking, I love my cats but I haven't reached the level of some cat lovers, so for the time being I just want the best for my cats.

Before I proceed with this babbling, you gotta first put this in mind. When I talk about my cats, it doesn't refer to just the word 'cat', it refers to my loved lil ones. When I talk about loving my cats, it doesn't refer to just the word 'love'.

Think of loving a person. A person can be your mom, dad, sibling, significant other, friends, teachers, colleagues, doctors, strangers, and so so on... and do u 'love' them all the same? It's still love, but is it the same? Now think 'cat'.

Many claim to love their pets. Some love their cats like I do, some probably even more (ermmm....maybe not..hihihi...) and others love their cats, but think I'm just going overboard with mine. Why the difference? Because you just don't get it. Now do you get it?
