The Unexpected Visitor ...

Last night wifey and me went out to get some stuff for the boys Sunday school party tomorrow. Only found out about it this evening when my mom called and told me about it. We didn't take the kids to Sunday school last week cos we were too whacked out from Seansy's wedding so we didn't know that the kids had to bring some food for the party. It's kinda like a pot luck thingy.

Well, after getting the food, we got home and as I came out of my car, I heard this meowing next to me. I looked around and there was this little cat looking at me. I'm not a fan of animals mind you (Adrian, you don't count ... LOL) but this little fellow was kinda cute. Actually I don't know if it was a fellow or a girly, didn't check ... hehehe ... My wife took a liking to him/her and went and played with the little kitty for a bit before we went in.


The kitty decided he wanted to follow us in, nothing doing. Like I said, I'm no fan of animals, so I closed the door thinking the little fellow would go away. I went and took my bath, came down to eat and I could hear some meowing outside the door. I opened the door and look and what do you know, the little fellow decided to camp right outside my front door on my welcome mat. He took a liking to my welcome mat and was rolling around playfully on it.


I was enthralled by it and sat there to observe the little fellow. When he saw me, he started to paw at me through the grill door. I sat there for about 45 minutes playing with the little fellow and trying to take some snaps of him. Not an easy task, especially with a cell phone camera and an extremely playful cat which didn't want to sit still. I did get a few usable shots but forgive the quality. Even after photoshoping it, this was the best I could get out of it.


Anyway, the little fellow got bored of playing with me and decided that it was time to sleep and just snoozed right there across my front door ignoring me altogether. I guess he's probably going to be there tomorrow morning when I wake up. I hope my mom doesn't step on him when she comes back later tonight. Well, when I woke up this morning, the little rugrat was still camping out on my front door welcome mat. I hope he wasn't expecting me to make him any breakfast or anything ... LOL!


He was so playful and when wifey went out to hang the laundry, he started rubbing himself on wifeys legs (now I'm convinced that it's a male ... LOL!) I think he just wanted attention but unfortunately we couldn't keep him, so wifey (the brave one in matters like this) grabbed him and we put him out at the back of our house where there is this whole community of stray cats for him to hang out with instead of making my door mat his home.

Oh my god, I just remembered something. I think I forgot to take off those silver silver cufflinks from my sleeves. Hope wifey hasn't started the washing machine yet .....

'Hoooonnnneeeeyyyyyyyy ........!'

  5. Cats always make good choices in who THEY want to adopt - don't be suprised if he/she reappears on your doorstep. A saucer of milk would be nice. hehehe

  11. LOL Shemah, I know what you mean ... Yeah, my wife found it hard to close the door, but the little fellow seemed to be snugly enjoying the welcome mat, so we knew he'd be okay.

  18. Emila, I saw the cat this afternoon when I went for lunch with wifey and the little fellow didn't give two hoots to us at all. Probably happy with his newfound friends ... LOL!

  19. Ab, you know, wifey and me named all the stray cats behind our house and I was tempted to name the lil fellow but we didn't want to get to attached to it. Underneath my manly macho exterior, I'm a softie at heart ... LOL!

  20. Deanea, yup, I'd have to agree with the 'start rubbing against the legs' part. I'm inclined to feel ticklish too. I'm not too keen on animals, nothing against them but I'm just too lazy to look after one. Wife wants a dog though!
