Asma Kausar and her family have rescued and adopted so many stray cats that they have become well known for their love for cats in their neighborhood. “Often we come upon a little youngling in the garden, left by a random person, knowing that it’d find a home with us,” says Asma.
Here is the story of Ismira, one of Asma’s kittens who has touched her heart in many different ways:
It begins when our neighbors brought over two little kittens, claiming them to be the litter of a cat that frequents our home, Bubbles. A brother and sister. Very tiny, and obviously in need of a mother’s care.
Vincenzo Vacca from Cagliari, Italy believes that cats and dogs can get along easily if they were introduced early. His sister just got a lovely white kitten who is extremely playful and curious. They live in a small town named Sarroch near Cagliari, so Vincenzo brought his dog over to meet up with her snowwhite fur baby.
The kitten was a bit shy when she saw the big fluffy German Shepherd, Laky, but soon they hit it off. It did not take long for them to find themselves sitting next to each other and hanging out like two old best buddies.
Wolfram Schubert from Germany is fascinated by cats from all walks of life and all over the world. He has met almost all the cats exist in his town and is often traveling around the world to meet new cats.
“When I am on travel, I find myself looking for cats on the streets quite automatically. Well, it didn’t become an obsession, but it sometimes acted as a door opener into foreign culture.” Wolfram has met cats from a Turkish fisherman, an grocery clerk in Brussels, a tinsmith in Rome, and the list goes on.
On March 22, Yang Min-chi and his teacher found a litter of five furry kittens in their office among a pile of things they stored in the room.
The windows had been closed for several days. Min-chi and his teacher thought a mother cat must have come into the room to give birth, but was not able to return to them after the windows were shut. Min-chi immediately opened the windows, hoping the mother cat would come back to nurse them. What he did not expect is that two of the kittens were later taken away by the mother cat leaving three others behind.
Min-chi realized that the best thing he could do was adopt the remaining three kittens and raise them on his own. They were named, Black, Black Dot and Naughty. Unfortunately, Black did not make it and went ahead on April 22nd because she had a hard time eating. On the other hand, Black dot and Naughty are doing well and have grown bigger and stronger.
Some people think cats are solitary animals that are not close to hoomans. We know that’s far from the truth as today’s story will prove.
Lawrence lives with his beloved kitty Eskybaby in Singapore. He is his best friend and companion.
“One word can sum up Eskybaby’s personality that is “dog-like.” He behaves just like a puppy. He craves for attention, cuddles and playtime. He follows me wherever I go in the house.” Eskybaby would not let his hooman be out of his sight at all. He tags along with him as closely as he possibly can.
“Even when I am showering, he wants to be nearby, grooming himself and waiting for me to be done.”
