Introducing Constantine: the Really Cute Little Paw

Graphics Credit: Ayah on his first attempt using Photoshop

I don't know why for the last few weeks I have been looking around for another cat; this time I was sure I wanted a kitten, preferably an orange coloured one. Well, actually the urge started when we went to visit SPCA and saw, no, not an orange kitten but a black 3 - 4 months old kitten - medium haired, pretty eyes and wanted to adopt it. What stopped me was the idea of parting with RM150 when my wallet was as empty as my bank account. So hehehehe and there I had to abandon the idea of another cat, for the time being.

When we went to buy our kids' monthly supplies at Pet Safari, the IPR was having an adoption campaign so I thought, why not? We've adopted three from them before and the kids are all as healthy as a horse. We saw one we liked, an orange coloured kitten about a month old or maybe less. Very unfortunate for us, the kid was booked. So there we go again empty handed.

A couple of weeks after, I had to fly to Langkawi on work assignment. 3 days 2 nights and when Ayah picked me up from the airport - taadaa! There was this box with the cutest looking kitten I've ever seen. We named him Constantine - a saviour!

Constantine was adopted together with 6 of his other siblings from the Makcik Cleaner at Ayah's office. The other five was adopted by Ayah's office mates and they each paid RM100 for each of the six darlings. I was so happy and delighted for this surprise and even though Constantine isn't really orange (he's actually Brown) he is a God's gift.

Constantine and the rest of the litter - they all have

thick fur underneath their eyes - very pretty indeed.

Constantine is about 3 weeks old, with very strong legs and learning, really learning to use his teeth. We feed him cat's milk as well as mashed Iams mixed with canned food for kittens. Well, it's about time that we have a new addition to the family and with Constantine in, we now have 7 healthy kids.

Hercules was very excited to have a new brother. from the very beginning he had not a problem with the boy. The rest are beginning to get along well with the boy and I guess he's already being accepted there. Today marks the 1st week Constantine is with us. We really hope that Constantine will grow a healthy boy and will fit in well with the rest of our kids. Welcome dear.

Abah & Ayah.

A Letter to our Son Sidney

To our dearest Sidney,

A year has gone since you left us to be at the Rainbow Bridge. We hope you're happy and doing well there with brother Troy and fellow friends. There was never a moment that we had forgotten you. You are dearly missed, Sid. For a year we have been carrying your collar with us wherever we go, so that both you and Troy would be close to us, watching us from up above.

Dearest Son, Sid,

Our love for fur balls started with you. From that moment we fell in love with you at SPCA and decided to adopt you until you left us in misery because of leukemia and FeLV, you have brightened every second of our lives. From there we started having more kids like you. We vow to take good care of them as you have taken good care of us. Too bad you've only met sis Gabby before you left but we're sure you're now very close friends with Troy. Sid, after Gabby and Troy, we have adopted many more like you. They're Isabelle, Victoria II, Hercules, Alexander, Napoleon and now Constantine.

How we wish to have you back with us. We talk about the good times we've had with you almost all the time. How you were so very obedient and loving towards us. Those were the best times of our lives, Sid. We can't help but cry while writing this to you but we do hope you're happy wherever you are. Take good care of yourself and li'll bro Troy. We assure you Sid, that no matter how many other fur balls we have, you'll remain our favorite and we'll never forget you.

Pray for your daddies and keep a watchful eyes on us and your other siblings. You're greatly and dearly missed by all.

Abah & Ayah.

Children of SUPERMAN

Everyone is on the bed except for Isabelle, the loner... I guess they're attracted to the SUPERMAN bed sheet huh? Or is it the comfort of the spring mattress?

Kitty's vs Human's Age

Kitty's Age Human's Age
6 months 10 years
8 months 13 years
1 year 15 years
2 years 24 years
4 years 32 years
6 years 40 years
8 years 48 years
10 years 56 years
12 years 64 years
14 years 72 years
16 years 80 years
18 years 88 years
20 years 96 years
21 years 100 years
22 years 104 years

So if this is the case.. here are estimation of my children's human age.

1. Isabelle - 32 years old - gasp - she's my age!

2. Gabrielle - 27 years old

3. Victoria II - 27 years old

4. Hercules - 17 years old

5. Alexander - 15 years old

6. Napoleon - 14 years old

7. The late Sidney would be 24 this year

8. The late Troy would be 19 this year

Additional fact: In a lifetime, the average cat sheds 14.95 lbs. of fur.
