|Ok this pic makes me look HUGE!|
My girls love animals particularly cats. I had one when I was younger but have not adopted any ever since I got married. So when Aisha begged & begged for a kitten I told her okay if she improves her grades. Figured our new home is large enough for a kitten to grow and we now have a small yard for her to run free. And man...she hit the books like no other & actually did just that.
So, I kept my words and scoured petfinder.my to adopt a kitten. When I searched there was one Persian cat on offer and like hundreds are interested to adopt. My heart ache for all the scrawny looking domestic kittens waiting...they stand a slimmer chance. So I told my girls - we are going to adopt a kucing kampung (domestic short hair) because it's harder for them to get adoted by a loving family. The girls agreed.
We went all the way to Balakong to adopt her. She was just a tiny 2 months old, a castaway...meet our new baby - Princess Gaga!
|Oh how regal I am...look at me all posh and stylin'...|
Yep, the cat in Aisha's drawing is a portrait of her beloved kitten, GAGA lol...This one is a delight. She's so active and cheeky and naughty and the girls just adore her. Completely litter trained, saves me lots of headache. Nowadays she's so attached to the girls, she'll cry if they are not around. The vet says she's healthy, she eats a lot and thriving well. One thing for sure, the sewing studio is off limits to her!
Having Gaga teaches my girl responsibilities. And I could see how the love and tenderness they feel for the pet is shaping them to be more caring and loving. I think this is a good decision for the family (thank you hubby for going along with this even when I know you're not really fond of a furry pet *hugs*).
A start of another busy week, til later ladies, have a wonderful day! :)
