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.
