Lesson in letting go

20130919-185003.jpg

I posted this picture on my Facebook page today. Jello looked like she was singing Miley’s “Wrecking Ball”! Hahahaha. At least in my eyes. ;o) She wasn’t really singing—duhh!!—but was chasing her hind leg. She loves to entertain herself by rolling around the ground, trying to catch her hind paw, and then biting it. Crazy. I love watching her do it, though. It’s quite amusing.

So I posted these pics online and I got a few likes and something totally unexpected: a personal message from a High School batchmate saying that she was interested in adopting Jello. Okay, if you are new to this blog, here’ a backgrounder: I got Jello from a friend who was leaving the country for good. I found a home for her but the person backed out last minute so I had to take Jello in. I said I was going to only foster her, but I knew deep inside that I was going to keep her. I talked about it here. I made it official a couple of weeks ago when I gave in and gave her a collar with my contact details.

And now someone is interested in adopting her.

I have to say that I am really torn about this. On one hand I think this is a good thing—she’s been incessantly fighting with my two kitties (Twister and Wednesday) so life would be better around here when she’s gone. But on the other hand, I’ve grown attached to her. She may be a Crazy Cat from Hell, but she’s also sweet and funny. I am going to miss our morning snuggles. She usually sits on the kitchen counter beside the sink while I wash the dishes. I will miss her company, too. I know I have to do this for the good of all the kitties—I think she will be better off as a solo cat anyway—but I’m going to miss her. 😦 I know my friend can provide her a good and loving home (she loves cats but doesn’t have one in her apartment), but I’m really going to miss my little Jelly Belly. 😦

So how do you let go?

Wednesday on a Wednesday: treat!

20130918-143913.jpg

Wednesday has a fetish for cotton buds. She loves to dig in my trash to look for some. Urgh. she doesn’t swallow it, but she will take a swat at it, lick, and chew on it. Like I said, URGH. That prompted me to change my waste basket in the room to a covered one and to just offer her an unused cotton bud as a treat when she behaves well. That’s more sanitary, right? πŸ™‚ Here she is patiently waiting for one.

Stray

I hope there’s a special place in Hell for people who abandon pets and hurt animals.

I was walking around Corinthian Gardens Village earlier this evening and found a sweet cat. She meowed as I passed by her, she approached me, and then started rubbing her head on my pants. She looked up and gave me another meow. I noticed right away that she was wearing a collar with a bell but no tag. I played with her for a while so I could check her condition. She was dirty but healthy. We were a block away from the EDSA entrance of the village; we walked over and I talked to the guards. Apparently she was abandoned 2 months ago (she looks like she’s 6 months old) and they’ve been taking care of her ever since. They have been taking turns feeding her and making sure that she’s inside the guard house when it starts raining. I promised them that I would come back and have her spayed. I don’t want her getting pregnant and having stray kittens.

I got extremely upset and angry when I saw her collar. How could people just abandon their pets!!! My anger dissipated, though, after I spoke with the guards. Bless them. I hope there’s a special place in Heaven for people who help abandoned pets and take care of animals.

(I apologize for the blurry pic. The cat was really frisky and lively so I could not take a good shot. That’s a good sign, though. It seems that they’ve been feeding her well. Yay!)

Crazy Cat Lady

Not all Cat Ladies are created equal.

I found this on the Black Cat Appreciation Group’s Facebook page yesterday. Whoever manufactured this action figure should make different versions: brunette with glasses, cats by the dozen… Hahaha. I can’t relate to this one—it’s too hot here in Manila to wear a house coat! ;o) It’s ridiculous, but I still want one! ;o)

Sleeping cat

I’ve missed drawing my dear cat, my original muse, Twister. Good to do it again after a long, loooong time. πŸ™‚

Someone wants to play hide and seek.
