4. Another KittenWhoMustNotBeNamed !

Dearest Sacha,

As Kathy would say, it was raining little animals yesterday.

Papa was on his way home from a meeting when he spotted a tiny but very wet kitten on the road, I guess trying to cross the street to a drier place. He got off his motorcycle to retrieve the kitten. He said he asked a barangay tanod to take care of it but when he looked back, he saw that he was not minding it at all. So he went back to get the kitten, brought it home, and told Jeanna to get it dry and take care of it until it was strong enough to leave. I guess the kitten thought it was indeed strong enough to leave, or it did not know a good home when it saw one, because the next time Jeanna looked, the kitten was gone.

But we'll make sure Neko stays.

Love you always, Mom

Dearest Sacha,

That wet little kitten didn't run away after all. It hid under the sofa in the big studio. Eric and Jeanna take turns in giving it milk. When I told Eric that we all thought it had run away, he assured us that it won't ever, because here, it is safe, and it gets fed here while outside, it isn't and it doesn't- reasons enough to stay. Papa, on the other hand, who rescued the kitten and brought it home, has refused to give the kitten a name so that he won't get emotionally attached to it. We'll see!

How are things with you?

Love, Mom

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww...

3. Neko's back!

She's still rather annoyed, though.

Heard a kitten inside the walls between my room and the bathroom. What was that short story that had a cat meowing from within the walls? For some reason, I couldn't bear to think of letting the cat starve to death there, so Kathy and my dad pried out large sections of the bathroom wall to get to the kitten.

Having rescued the kitten to the great detriment of the wall, we tucked the kitten into a hurriedly scrounged-up shoebox and sped off to the zoo. The kitten was fed, cleaned, and put to bed by one of Kathy's friends, and we took the kitten back home after being given some instructions on how to take care of her (her!).

There are some complications, of course. My dad is a bird person, my sister is a dog person, and I don't know how the KittenWhoMustNotBeNamed (my sister fears I'll get too attached if I name her) will get along with Lucas (a big black Labrador), Kaygee (a somewhat grumpy toy poodle) and Picco (the Lovebird of Death).

Maybe I'll get to keep her if I ask for her as my graduation present. If I do get to keep her, I'll probably name her something like "Nano". ;)

Well, the kitten is alive and well. She has switched to dry food, learned how to walk (and climb - you should see her bound - there's no doubt that cats live in a 3d world), and can win fights with Kaygee.

Also been named Neko. Cross-reference: 2003.09.25:15
