OSCC

I think my house kat tingkat 5 ni memang akan jadi OSCC (one stop center for [lost]cats).

Duluuuuuu bulan Mac/April tahun lepas, Labu datang, terus for good.

Aritu, Chookie pula datang menumpang.

Malam tadi, while Labu Labi were having their wet-food dinner by the kitchen, from the bedroom I heard a peculiar meowing, a wee bit too close to our unit for comfort. I rushed out front, asked Abang yang masa tu tengah tengok TV, “Sapa yang meow lain macam tu??? Bukan Labi tu! Abang tak dengar ke???”, and saw Labu Labi abandoning their dinner and went straight to the door instead.

The peculiar meow came from right outside the door.

I opened to peer, and terus a teenage grey long-tailed cat darted in without kasi salam or even an inch of hesitation, like it was seeking shelter from something really scary outside. Labu Labi instantly jumped onto the tucked dining chairs, their normal hideouts, where they can safely observe the stranger. And the stranger nervously looked around, confused, and instinctively hid under the console table.

“Ahhhh sudah. Not another one!!! Dah la grey colour, Bang (one of my fav colour on cats)! Macam mana niiiiii.”

“Abistu… jangan la kasi dia masuk!”

Dia yang masuk terus, macam tengah lari dari rimau ke apa!”

“Dah, dah, pi ambil makanan sikit, letak dalam bekas, kita tinggalkan dia kat lif lobi. Alin bawa dia, Abang bawa makanan.”

And so I poured a wee bit of LabuLabi’s biscuits into a bekas, gave it to Abang, while I took the grey kitty into my arms.

Instantly it tucked into my arms for security… but when it saw Abang, suddenly kucing tu menggigil menggeletar macam dalam ketakutan yang amat sangat! Like, really, shaking like a leaf! Ish, kesian betul.

And when we took it outside, it jumped out from my arms and ran to our front door’s neighbour’s shoe rack and hid kat situ pulak… macam nak sorok dari Abang.

“Tu la Abang, pakai tuala je (masa tu Abang memang tengah nak sejukkan badan nak mandi). Kucing pun takut, hahahahaha.”

So I put down the biscuits near the door… but it kept meowing outside till late at night.

Aiyoh, tak moh bukak la lagi pintu, nanti dia masuk lagi, akaaaaaaak plak yang susah nak lepaskan semula.

Tapi pagi ni, grey kitty dah tak da di luar. Makanan pun nampak tak berusik.

Aiyoh I’ve got to stop craving for a small baby kittens. But occasionally, you know what… I still do miss Chookie, the good little boy I could not own.
