…is a cat of my own.
Hubby: Happy birthday, sweetie! So, what present can I get you?
Me: A pet!
Hubby gives me a pat on the head.
Me: No! You know what I’m talking about. P-E-T, pet! I want a pet cat!
Hubby: No pets. You can have anything but a pet.
Sigh. Thanks to hubby’s non-negotiable “no animals in HDB home” policy, I can forget about having a kitty of my own. For now.
Last week, I was walking along Short Street, and came across this street cat. She’s such a sweet kitty, one of the most affectionate cats I’ve come across! Very well-groomed too, for a street cat.
Apparently, she’s regularly fed by a kindly shopkeeper nearby, who named her Xiao Ding Dang.
Oh, Xiao Ding Dang, how I wish I could give you a loving home. 🙁
Bye for now, Xiao Ding Dang. I’ll visit you again with some kitty kibble!
