From the desk of Mama Piggy:
.... we have a "problem".
This is the little Calico girl we "catnapped" this evening. We chanced upon this newcomer while feeding Milo's mummy at the void deck.
Don't be fooled by her sweet demeanour. The pink-nosed girl is a feisty chilli padi - tiny in size but packs a fiery punch. When I spotted her, a Jack Russell on a leash was barking at her furiously, one metre away. Kitty was initially unperturbed, but suddenly she decided to march up to the noisy barker and hissed and spat at him! Her defiance caught the dog owner, me and another onlooker by surprise.
I wanted to carry her away but she turned around and swiped at me. Thanks to Muffin Terror, I am now quite adept at dodging such unpleasantries. The dog owner finally dragged his hyper pooch away, and I fed the hungry girl who wolfed down the wet food with great gusto.
After eating her fill, she was contented to remain at the void deck to play with me. She is about 4 months old, very affable and trusting, and is not afraid of human contact at all. What shall we do with her?? We went home, undecided. But my mind was in a turmoil. How could I leave her alone?
So I came down again with some dry food. She was still at the void deck!! I guess there is no running away from Fate. I buzzed the hubby to bring down the carrier, and little Calico girl walked straight into it!
She is now in our flat's kitchen toilet, and took to the litterbin without a fuss. I think she is a very good candidate for adoption.
This is the only time I could snap a picture of her keeping still.
Her calico patches.
Tomorrow, I will try and speak to Phyllis to take her in - I will pay for the boarding and medical fees of course.
I know I wouldn't be able to sleep well tonight if I didn't bring her home.
A cold front
