Another cat surprised me one night as I was sitting on the sofa watching tv. A tiny face suddenly appeared behind the tv cabinet. It had come in from the back door and its curiousity had gotten the better of it. I think I uttered a cry of surprise as it promptly turned and bolted. No amount of meowing and 'tssissing' (hehehe) from me could cajole it back. Iyala...as if I know cat language.
The same cat came for yet another visit. We both surprised each other. I had come home from work. I would normally turn on the fan first. If it's already dark, the lights too. On this occasion, I turned on the fan and was about to go to the bedroom when a cat shot out from the bedroom, scrambling and scratching for any foothold to make it run faster- which made it funnier as the floor was tiled. I stood agape for a moment before moving to the kitchen, where it had headed. The cat, which had a necklace of some pearly thingies, indicating that it belonged to somebody, jumped on the cook counter and slipped out of the small window opening. Huih... After a moment's thought, I went back to the room and felt for any spot of warmth on the comforter. Hmm... ada. So this cat had managed to come into my house and found a comfy spot to nap. Ahahaha... the cheek!! Haven't managed to snap a pic of him though.
Huh? Is that idiot's box? (Cat looking up at the tv..i think)
Since then, a few more cats have visited me. Oops, not me, my house. This one cat visits me periodically to meow for food. She attracted a male the other day and the male had followed her into my house. She, looking for food, he, looking for affection.
The hungry cat
The amorous follower.
Please ma'am, can i have some more?
The first cat had rubbed its scent in my house, which may have led the other cats to come and mark their own scent (if its a male kali) over the previous scent owner. Hih... i think the neighbourhood is home to loads more cats - still unbeknownst to me. Guess i'll just have to have my camera ready for the them when they come to visit.
