Lil' Blue Eyes


Stumbled upon this little tyke on our morning walk today. The poor sod, chucked amongst dewy grass on a side lane just 100m metres from the condo entrance, was raising quite a ruckus with its piteous mewing.

As we stood there contemplating all the options, we knew we couldn't just walk away and leave it to the elements. Lift it, and take it home, and we would have to contend with the green-eyed monster named Lillie within.

Ignore its mournful wail, and it could fall into a drain and possibly drown. Worse, it could meet a more horrible death; mauled by stray dogs or mowed down by a passing vehicle.

Suffice to say the blue-eyed kiddo joined us on our walk (held it by the scruff of its neck, I did). And at the 'mamak' to 'tapau' some 'roti canai' home, everyone looked at us suspiciously
(Oohh look!, She's gonna dump that poor kitten somewhere, evil woman!)

It is now sleeping in a cage next to the washing machine, after lapping up the milk that I gave him (I think it's a 'him'). I don't know what I am going to do next; a trip to SPCA in Jalan Ampang looms as a real possibility.

Don't think the family can keep another cat anyway. As it were, it is already against condo bylaws to keep pets, although the management graciously turns a blind eye to residents who do.

And now the rant. To all of you who have perfected this despicable art of dumping unwanted pets willy-nilly, this is what I have to say: Such uncivilised behaviour. Shame on you! I wish you ill for at least seven generations. Hrrrmmmph!

comel nya si lillie...saya pun ada kucing tapi jantan..walau pun dah tua, tapi kami anak beranak sayang kan dia...
Kadang2 saya pun marah kat orang yang buang anak kucing ni..zalim betul sebab kekadang tu anak kucing tu belum buka mata lagi....
Rasa lah nanti masa dalam kubur nanti...balasan dah pasti kepada penzalim binatang kesayangan nabi...

A few months ago some idiot dumped 3 little tiny kitties at the front gate of J's Kota Damansara's rented house. Kecik2 probably baru a week old and alas dengan panties buruk!
Fateen frantically talipon RSPCA..they didn't accept sebab short of manpower etc..they said they'll have to put the kitties to sleep.
Well..she left it at the vet. Tak tahulah apa jadi sebab it was still at the age of milk suckling..every few hours kena bagi milk..vet asked her to pick up the next day..she didn't sebab nak jaga macam mana right..so hopefully vet jaga jugak.

I too curse rhose who throw away tiny kitties without the mommy..niaya betul.

You cannot say ******** to cat lovers can you?
Aren't you just being melodramatic wishing "ill for at least seven generations. Hrrrmmmph!", :-)

Salam Sis,
Ustz i cerita, makhluk binatang ni, mrk ni sebenarnya sentiasa berzikir, bertasbih and sujud pd Allah. On their kaifiyat (cara) tu, wallauhualam. once they stop the zikir, the tasbih and the sujud, Allah matikan ia. Subhanallah.
Bagus juga sis eh, ada zikir tasbih extra in your house. Kot dia mendoakan juga, 'murahh rezeki Kama sekeluarga hendaknya. Amin', katanya. Haaa..

And kata ustz lagi, Allah dah tentukan rezeki mrk2. Tapi bila manusia dah amik alih membela, kena la bertangungjawab kasik makan .. if not, berduhsa...

Errr i have one at home. Andropause agaknya. Asik tido je. Jalan ngiau pun tak larat. Kalau tak dulu tu kemain hero, siap bermukah depan gate i. Hik.

Cat - right on!

Zah - Lillie tu kucing saya yg jeles berlebih2 tu, Xah. Yang ni lom bagi nama.. hehe

Mamasita - don't understand why some ppl can be so kering hati to separate kittens still nursing from their mother.Tanggunglah dosa nanti sebab naya binatang..

Lap - of course I was being melodramatic..LOL! Actually I was told by the guard yg anak kucing to belonged to a condo resident jugak.. mana dia tau entahla

Pi - I am so tempted to mandikan dia already..kalau dah mandi tu, alamat tak kemana ler..

Mia - Syukur Alhamdulillah kalau kesejahteraan kita didoakan kucing2 yg kita bela..

Oldstock said...

Ouch! Kak Kama bersumpah macam Mahsuri la pulok, heheheh...

So, dah bagi nama kat kitten tu? I suggest Tot (sebab ekor dia kontot kan?)

Typhoon Sue said...

ala...tomeynyerrrr...
i'm a sucker for lil kitties. suka sangat! u can advertise for adoption at www.petfinder.my
taruk gambar comel lote punyer.

org yg buang anak kucing ni mmg zalim, especially yg buang kat tepi jalan. U can't expect the kitty not to go on the road, coz the kitty may be hungry, looking for its mommy, or simply confused as to why the owner left them there.. And bila dia lintas jalan, berlakulah suatu tragedi..i sedih sangat whenever i see the remains on the road.

Please DON'T sent the kitten to SPCA which will only put it to sleep.

Better to let the kitten to try its luck in the streets than certain death through SPCA.

Kama said...

Oldstock - Ooo, Tot sounds cure!

Sue & Anon 4.21 - I hv this feeling the kitten tak sampai ke petfinder or spca. I think sampai kat rumah ni aja kot..:-P

bathed it this morning, now bersih and even cuter, been under awwa's feet all morning.. even Lillie seems accomodating. maybe because kecik kot, ada potential bully in the near future.

Typhoon Sue said...

hahaha... so lillie gets a friend. The last time, maybe Lillie was annoyed with the after-surgery smell, the anaesthetics and whatnots. This time, hope things turn out just fine, and everybody lives happily ever after.

THE END

Aunty Puteri,
Biar saya jampikan Lillie tu.
Pooh kanan, pooh kiri
Berkat doa Baginda Ali
Terbukalah hati Lillie
Terimalah si kecil ini....
ptui ptui ptui....

I think that little tyke has a bit of Thai blood in him..and that little tyke has also proved that someone has mellowed..softer and tender..like a Strad violin..reaching its excellence thro age..:)even thro the curse..for pity is what he should get..for having a callous heart that cannot see and be moved by a helpless wail of a kitten..

Puteri,

Some people just don't deserve to keep pets, same goes as some people should not have children too. Sad to say but true.

Salam,
Tommy
