Bonding Kitties #1

Posted: November 5, 2008 in The Purrrrs

I’m ‘digging’ my photo collections and found these..

Friday, 4 July 2008.. That evening, Am was stopped at a traffic light on the way home, when he heard a kitten’s cry. At the other side of the road, there was a smudge-coloured kitten trying to climb up the curb. Failed or maybe too tired to try, the kitten hid itself in a scupper drain. Am stopped his car, and brought the kitten home.

Am named her as Memon.

That time, Momoy was the first and only cat in our apartment. She never mixed with other cat. She only mixed with bunnies 😛 So everytime Memon tried to approach her, she would ran away 😉 Memon never gave up. She followed Momoy everywhere she goes.

This kitten is really annoying.. She's tailing me everywhere i go! I better climb up here.. purrrrr..

After a week tried, Memon stopped following Momoy. But, it surprised us.. The ignorance gave a big impact, tho 🙂

One Friday morning :

Hmmm.. i wonder why the kid stop following me... I think i should have a look..Owh, there she is.. posing for Mom.

Then i saw Momoy came towards Memon and snuggled her from behind

Hey kid, wanna play?

Hehe.. it took a week for Momoy to accept the new kitten, but it was worthy. I think this photos will explain more..

.. Another playing invitation ;)

.. Momoy is watching her little sister sleeping 🙂

.. She even invited the little kitten to her cage :mrgreen:

.. And invited the kitten into her box. Hey, she stole that from the Fluffies 👿

.. Running and hiding from vacuum cleaner’s noise 😀

.. I wonder when is Mom going to shut off the vacuum cleaner...

At first, i also refused to accept Memon to live with us. We’re supposed to send it to Am’s mother. But later, we found it’s good to have a new kitten around, to accompany Momoy. Since then, we noticed that Momoy is happier to have a same-species playmate, instead of playing with us 😉

In Malaysia, civet cats are one of the endangered species and strictly protected by the local authority – Department of Wildlife & National Parks Malaysia.

Mr Am found Cinchan injured and caged in a plantation near his construction site. We brought her home.

This is the picture of me holding Cinchan. That time, she was much younger and fierce too. Be careful everybody. She can makes u lost your finger! 😛

Cinchan only eats local fruits and some slice of boiled chicken. Her favourite fruits are mango, papaya, banana, watermelon, honeydew, and rambutans. And her most favourite is durian, also known as King of Fruits in Malaysia. She loves fresh milk, and some treats like cookies and nuts.

Her outing-hours..

We kept her for many months and tried to tame her. But a wild creature like her is hard to tame. She bite me a few times while i was feeding her. She also caused some damage to our home, especially our small pets. And believe or not, Momoy lost half of her long tail bcoz of Cinchan :OMG:

So after a few months trying, we decided to let her go.

A journey home..

This is not her luggage.. She's the luggage!

I still remembered the day. We went to the same plantation we found her to set her free.

Soon after we opened the cage’s door, she walked on the cage, looking at us, and slowly stepped backward. A few minutes later, she ran towards a small hill, stopped for a while, looked at us, then continue running.

She's trying to bring her luggage with her :LOL:

It was kinda heavy-hearted actually bcoz we kept her since was much smaller. But for her own sake and to protect her species, i think we have done the best by freed her. Hope she already found her life partner and build a big family by now 😀

Live free, Cinchan..!!
