Living With Cats




We have 2 wonderful kittens that love to jump, run and climb up and down around the house. They are our cats number 8 and 9.

We have started living with cats when we decided to show mercy on a little crippled kitten at the back of our terraced house. Her mother has left her on her own, most probably because of her inability to move around.

We have fed her with milk and water as she was still unable to eat solid food. But she was a loving cat and just loved to snuggle around us or lying lazily on the sofa watching TV.

She was very happy to be with us and she never left our house for long. She slept inside the house. By morning she would go from room to room trying to wake everyone up.

She was clean and took many hours to clean her body. And she would never shitted around everywhere. The bathroom hole had been her usual toilet place.

I can still remembered the night when she gave birth to 3 premature kittens. She was inexperienced and begged for help. No knowing what else to do, we decided to lock her in a room. That night, the kittens all died when she had accidentally bitten them as she carried them around. It was a sad moment for her and she mourned for her loss for a long long while. We were sorry for the outcome.

She had no problem of delivery in later days. She gave birth to more than 30 kittens.

We are happy to have them and we always cook extra food just for them. Neighboring friends and colleagues did ask for them and we gave them freely.

We are very happy to notice that all our cats just know where to shit except one. The old mother cat had taught them well.

We have proper times for their meals and they will always come back in time. And every time they come home, they will greet us with their meows until we answered them.

The old mother cat had finally left us. She was nowhere to be found. We hoped that she died in peace and not knocked down by any vehicle.

Early this morning, the neighbors has phoned and requested for our cat numbor 8 and 9. We hesitated but we decided to give them willingly.

Looking back, we are really happy. We have kept more than 40 cats.

They are our beautiful and beloved cats and we love them. They are part of our big family.

Yeah, they are always welcome to stay in this house and we will always take good care of them.

I think you must be a very special person to take such care of these cats and kittens.

40 cats!! Wow, I currently have 4 (6 actually counting those which died). You mentioned who cannot take a shit properly at its place... Surely 39 out of 40 is a good no.

I love your cats and I am so amazed about the way you handle a big family with cats. I love cats but the problem is nobody will look after them if I supposed to have them.
