Finding What is Lost and Returning Them to Its Rightful Place

What would you do if you find something that is lost? That something is what you really like and you already formed a bond with it, then suddenly the rightful owner comes along. Are you going to keep it or are you going to let go of it?

Keeping it might not be a bad idea, because you didn’t steal it. It isn’t your fault that the rightful owner isn’t mindful of his pets, things and possessions, the owner probably just realized the importance of the object/animals when it is gone, but you as a person who also lost things/pets without finding them back, you know and understand the feeling of emptiness, so you will return that thing you found, no matter how you liked it, because you know in yourself, you will not be happy owning it when you know that someone is crying over it and who know maybe that thing you found, wanted to be reunited with its rightful owner as well, you may never know because animals/things can’t speak, isn’t it? All you need is closure and peace of mind that you didn’t aggravate/hurt someone.

Anyway, on New Years eve one of my cats came home tagging along two cute kittens with her. My older cousin ‘s daughter able to grab the smallest kitten and was handed to me, while the second one is scared and can’t be caught. The kitten is starving so I feed her and when I woke up in the morning to check the kitten, in my surprised I found the second kitten sleeping with the first one, I fed them both with milk and food and bathed them both because they are dirty and full of lice.

It has been almost four days since the kittens were in my care, but I never heard anyone searching for them. I guess I can keep and love them, but honestly I am scared thinking that someone will take them from me anytime, but I know if someone look for them and wanted them back, I have to let go of these two cute kitties to their rightful owner.

Being a Cat Person is Partly Inherited: Cats and More Cats in my Aunt’s House

A day before our  scheduled trip back home, we are fetched by an uncle to visit an aunt’s house in a subdivision.  He initially told us that he well fetches us at eight o’clock in the morning, but it was almost lunch time when he came, it turns out he was too drunk to wake up early.

When we arrived at my aunt’s house, lunch was already waiting for us. My mother who is already so hungry dig in immediately (lol), I took my time taking pictures than eating lunch, hence I am a bit full and I really don’t have a strong appetite to eat the past few days.

Well, after lunch we scan a bit inside my aunt’s house and see her precious Persians cats who are so untamed so I am only able to take photo of one of them.  My aunt has so many cats,  both with the breed and not. It turns out, we are both “kitten picker” I mean we are both animal lovers and we both picked abandon kitten from the street. She has more than 10 cats to date, all neutered. My father even blurted out, now he knew where I got the attitude of being a kitten lover.  I showed her the pictures of my cats and my aunt almost buy me a Persian cat from her friend, but unfortunately her friend wasn’t around when we went to their house, they are currently in Manila for a visit.

Since, we’ve been talking about visiting the infamous monastery in Tarlac, we decided to head up there after my younger uncle came, he is just a year older to me and I remember being scolded by him when we are still kids, when I didn’t wait for him after school and I went home with the neighboring kids, it turns out he look hard for me that time.

It was a good thing too, my aunt German husband woke up, so she is able to ask permission that we are going to the monastery for a short period of time. As a PH custom, I have to do “mano po” gesture to my foreigner uncle whom I just met. My aunt introduces me and says my husband was an “Australian” which I corrected three times since she mentioned it three times as well, dunno what they were talking because I can’t understand German language at all.

Dealing with Leaving My Pets Behind

It was yesterday, when my sister complained that it was hard for her to bath my dog. It turns out Jae Hwan doesn’t want to be bathed and today, she messages again that my dog isn’t eating. With this, I told her to call me in IMO when she came home from work late afternoon and let Jae Hwan see me, and let me see Whitey (my cat) too.

When, I was told that my dog doesn’t want to eat. I feel anxious because the first time I move out the house and went to Korea, all my cats died like they have missed me.  I have read somewhere that pets feel sad and depressed when they can’t see their human anymore, they grieved silently. I made sure when I left Odiongan a few days ago to informed Whitey that I will leave, but will be returning to them, while didn’t really tell Jae Hwan where am I going, I just told her to stay.

As told, my sister called early in the evening with Jae Hwan in tow. She moves a lot whenever I called out her name and keeps hiding in my sister’s back, don’t know what my dog is thinking.  Is she hated me or she just don’t want to see me because I didn’t tell her where am I going or if I am returning home. Meanwhile, Whitey, is more obedient, when you called her name she will keep looking at me with her two big eyes.

My guilt of leaving my pets behind is eating me up, my grandmother has two cats, but they are not the same pets I have at home, when I saw Jae Hwan and Whitey I have the thought of wanting to go home.

The Cutest Among Monina’s Five Little Kittens

Monina has five new kitties as what I have mentioned on my previous post, four of them are male and only one female and among the five kitties there is one kitty I liked the most, the only black kitten. I called him “blackie” but knowing my family they might named give him a Korean name again.

Blackie is the smallest and frailest among the five kitten but he is the cutest.  He loves to go inside our house and follows Jinja, hopefully he won’t be trained by Jinja on how to steal food (lol).

Sunjae: Our Dog’s Adopted Puppy

Well, long time no update over here. I got sick with chikungunya virus since there was an outbreak in our compound. We have  a new puppy at home, my family named him “Sunjae” no matter how I disagree of naming our pets with Korean names I can’t seems to win with them. We got Sunjae from a distant relative, initially we are told the puppy is still lactating and it isn’t eating yet but my sister insisted of taking him home, planning to use baby formula on the puppy.

At home Jinjoo didn’t like the sight of the new puppy, she hates the puppy who keeps following her and trying to nurse at her. We just let them familiarize at each other and in the morning when we wake up they already get along, Jinjoo adopted the puppy and she nursed him like her own pup.

Sunjae is a very smart puppy, when you tell him no or hit him once he won’t repeat the same thing again. When feeding our pets he usually climb at my leg so I hit him lightly once and since then he didn’t do it again and just excitedly run and cry when I start feeding them. What’s funny about him, he don’t like taking a bath, he cries and whimper every time I pour water on him.

Capturing Memorable Moments with my Fluffy Friends

Adopting homeless and abandon cats from the street was already normal for me, for us. No matter how many times we promised and told ourselves not to pick homeless kittens again, we always brought home a new set of kittens from the street because we can’t just simply ignore them, their scared little meow looking for someone who will give them warm, food and shelter right that moment.

Today, we have fourteen cats at home, including Monina’s five little kittens. There should be more than this number if only all the kittens we picked from the street survive, but since maybe they were too little, still nursing and already sickly when we got them, they didn’t able to live a healthy life no matter how I feed and cared for them.

Sanghwa: My gosh we are getting crowded…

Like most pet owners, our cats were like a family member to us. They don’t eat spoiled food, they have their own food at home. My family often teased me that I spend too much on my little kids, they dubbed them as my kids because they tend to follow me around like little kids to their mamma’s whenever I went out the house to go to the store or even simply going outside to throw some garbage they will be tailing me.

Jeong Woo: Cheer up Ryanne your dark circles will never go away, stop eating salty food look how your face is swollen today, wanna know my secret how to get whiter skin?

Every moment with them is memorable because just like dogs, they can vibrate and feel when you are happy or sad. They knew when to cheer you up, they can make you laugh with their playful antics and nature, they know how to amaze you by by twisting their body like a gymnast.

Dongsu: I’m sad too. Our pretty neighbor (cat) rejected me last night.

Most of the time they knew when to give you hug and warmth when they sleep beside you, and most importantly, they knew as well when to create steam in the top of your head by turning things upside down inside the house or eating your food on the table.

Dongsu: Hmm… what about me?

When you have cats you can’t eat chips alone because they go crazy at the smell and the sound of a plastic. Yes, most cats are mischievous in nature, but they are one of the sweetest at times, the way they purred and wrapped their bodies around you or jump in your shoulders, the way they cries when they are hungry or had been banned inside the house for littering and soiling the rugs is priceless.

Gildong: Please let me in… I promised not to pee and litter inside the house anymore…

Let’s meet our little fluffy friends and know the memorable moments that bring smile to our faces and create steam in the top of our heads at times?

They knew it is feeding time the moment they heard the sound of their dishes, give them food because if not suffer the consequences…

The older male cat in our house was named Dongsu from the Korean drama series Baek Dongsu, my sister and I rescued him from being trapped on top of the tree. We are busy fetching water when we heard a cat crying, it was scary at first because you can hear a cat crying but you can’t find where it is coming from. #ghost

Dongsu is a very silent cat who loves to sleep, take selfies with me and pee anywhere inside our house in my mother’s disgust and horror. He also loves to play and catch birds that’s why he always volunteer to look after the grains, and after the young kittens.

Dongsu: Ikkk, I thought this is a look up pose or was it Walking Dead Pose?

Monina a female black cat from the town market; she is a street cat who’s used to fighting with other cats for the sake of food. She is very competitive despite her inborn twisted left foot; she is a mischievous as well because of her background, she teaches the younger cats to steal food from our fridge, and to climb in our kitchen sink.
What’s funny about her when you caught her stealing food, she will immediately run and dock her head down as if she was hiding from you. We have to put collars on her so our neighbors will know that she is a domestic cat and not a devil cat like how most people presumed when seeing a black cat around.

Monina is currently nursing five little kittens, four of them are male making the last one female.

Sanghwa is a calico kitten my mother and sister found in the middle of a busy street, they stopped to pick her and called out at the nearest house to inform that their kitten went outside and might be accidentally hit by vehicles, but the moment my mother put down the little cat in the ground, she runs back towards them so the owner just gave her to them.

Sanghwa, is a very sweet and loving kitty, she loves to fish out ice water in the tub, to clean herself and every kitty around her. She loves eating, she loves to chew food and to eat alone without another cat bothering her, she can eat boiled plantain banana and boiled sweet potato and she can even eat grass.

Jinja and Patpat were abandon in the street, going to town we saw them walking on the road side, but going home they were already in the middle of the road, so we stopped and the moment I went down the motorcycle to check on them they run towards me like they were happy that “mommy” is coming.

The more they get old the more they become playful and naughty;

Jinja loves to sleep in my foot at night, stole the food in our fridge, rubbed his head/body in our legs, he loves to follow everyone without his knowing that he can us make trip in the ground. When you look outside the window and he is around, he will quickly climb and cry blocking your view.

Compare to Jinja’s mischievous behavior Patpat is a bit timid, but cries out loud, he loves to catch bugs and spider in the house and climb on trees which make me wonder sometimes if he is indeed a cat or bird. Patpat has the habit of turning our garbage can upside and down, chewing and eating the plastics, he also loves being petted by our duck and he loves doing yoga too, he is a healthy buff kitty if you may ask me.

Okneo, is Monina’s only surviving adult kitty, she is the youngest and the frailest but she survived alone after one of her siblings died from being a victim of a hit and run, and the others went sick after catching colds.Her right eye is blind and the left eye is crossed-eye but her nose works well especially on finding food and petting the younger kittens.

Gildong, Jeong Woo and Rueh are three of the four white kitties we save from being abandoned. When scabies and mange became rampant among the dogs around the neighborhood, we found some of our cats having them as well since they love to play and roll outside. I treated them, they stopped itching, but then they get itchy again, it turns out I put too much salt on their food, I was told it wasn’t healthy because they are too young so right now I cooked their food bluntly, it was just too sad Jeo Wook wasn’t able to live long.

Do you love “Taking selfies with your fluffly friends? Which OPPO #SelfieExpert smartphone produces the best selfies?”

They are all lovable aren’t they? I love taking selfies and playing goofy with them, but of course most of the time the photo quality isn’t good because my kitties tend to move a lot making hard for the camera to focus on us and my phone camera failed to capture the right angle.

Getting the right angle and capturing a clear selfie photo is most pet owners wanted. Hear yeah! OPPO introduces a fantastic smartphone that produces the best selfies in the market today, it was no other than the OPPO F3 #SelfieExpert sporting a 13mp rear camera and dual front camera (16mp primary + 8mp secondary) with the touch-focus and face detection for clearer and better selfies.

Saving and Adopting Four White Kittens from Being Abandon

A few months ago when my younger sister went to see one of the management for the volleyball tournament in our barangay which is a distant relative to confirm when will be their next game and when she went home she has three white kittens in a plastic basket.

It turns while she was asking confirming for the game schedule she saw the kittens playing and blurted out that they are cute and that’s where she was told if she want them because they will throw them in a few days and since we are looking for a white kitten to the extinct that we run after the homeless white cats in the public market my sister took them home without hesitation.

When my mother saw the kitties as usual she complained for having too many cats already at home, we already have ten cats and now there is another three but when I bathed them she was the first one who babies them.   My sister says that they are all four white kitties but the fourth one hid under the chairs and they can’t catch it so she was told to take it next time.

After a few days my sister return to their house to get the fourth kitten, contrary what she had told us that the last kitty was small and isn’t cute at all. The fourth kitty is a biggest, the chubbiest one and the cutest of them all because of his blue eyes and I named him Rueh.

Tips on Rescuing a Puppy

A few years ago the video of Dyno’s expert engineers rescuing a week old puppy that had been accidentally flushed down a toilet and gotten stuck in the drainage system went viral.

The puppy’s distressed owner from North London had already called in the fire brigade and RSPCA, however neither was able help.  Luckily they had the dexterity of thought to contact the local operations manager at Dyno who had the expertise and quick thinking to launch a rescue mission.

Local engineer Will Craig rushed to the scene and immediately instructed the neighbours not to flush any toilets in order to make sure the puppy did not get pushed further in to the main sewer.  From there he had the idea of using Dyno-rod’s CCTV technology to discover exactly where within the drain network the pup had become stuck.

Equipment was then used to push the puppy gently through to the closest manhole where a fireman was on hand to rescue him.

He has since been checked over by a local vet who remarkably declared him unhurt and healthy.  The pet’s female owner was concerned about the cost of this unorthodox call out, however the engineers at Dyno were happy to offer their services for free.  The local operations manager reassured the woman that there would not be any charge and their only concern was that puppy was kept alive and well.

This is a truly extraordinary video and highlights the need for animal safety within the home.  It is more common than you would think for small pets to inadvertently fall into the toilet bowl and the best general advice is to keep them well away from the bathroom.  Fortunately this story had a happy ending.

You can watch the video which has notched up over 500,000 hits on YouTube here.

Meet Taejo: The New Member of Our Kitty Family

Meet Taejo, he is my new adopted homeless kitty.  My sister and I found him in our grandmother’s backyard crying and looking towards our home, I guess he knew that we have many cats.

It was a few nights ago when we started hearing a kitten crying  and since there are several cats that stays in the church we just thought the mother cat brought her kittens there, I have managed to see the kitty in the church rooftop when I went upstairs our house to hang clothes and whenever I called him, the kitty responded meowing and there are times I saw our older male cat visiting the kitten.

One night, we heard the kitty cries quite loud pertaining he is quite near so my sister and I went out to see where the cries coming from and that’s where we found the kitty I named Taejo in our grandmother’s yard.  It was a good thing Taejo is a male kitten because if he was a female my mother will not like it since we already have many cats at home.

Taejo is such a cutie with big round eyes, he cries a lot whenever he is hungry and he loves to be bath.  His color is like our young male cat “Suhee”,  so we suspect they have the same father. It took only less than a day for the cats to like him, they accept him as their younger brother right away.

In Memory of Our Cutie Chubby Kitty Taekwoon

Every morning when we wake up our kittens were already waiting behind our main door so when we opened it they will excitedly run inside our house to play and asked for food. Today, there is something different one kitten (Taekwoon) is missing and we can’t found him everywhere, we search here and there but he isn’t around. It is peculiar because it is not his norms to be not around in the morning.

My sister search around and asked neighbors were one of them says that they found a dead cat which looks like a mother cat that was been a victim of hit and run just about an hour ago, were told that they throw it in the irrigation canal.  I have asked the kid who found the dead cat what does it looks like and show here a photo of Taekwoon in my phone and her answer is positive, it was the dead cat she found in their yard. It turns out at night Taekwoon loves to run across the street and after reaching the other end he will run back home.

Taekwoon (May 28, 2016 – December 02, 2016)

Sad, my sister went searching along the irrigation canal and when she returned it was indeed Taekwoon, cold and wet.  It was very painful to see the sweet, chubby and playful Taekwoon in such condition, it was just last night when I cuddle and feed him, it was just last night when he cried into my ears but now he is gone.

Taekwoon was born on May 28, 2016 as the eldest of Monina’s four kitties. His feature is very distinguish because of his long ears, red nose and chinky eyes, when he was younger he looks like a rat than a cat. Surely our cutie Taekwoon will be forever be missed, our chinky eyes kitty will be always in our heart. In heaven, your playground will be more wider with no cars, bikes to fear around.
