An Uninvited Guest

Guess what? We had an uninvited guest at home last night, but I didn't get to meet him, unfortunately. What happened was, we came home late after the humans had dinner at my MM's parents house and once I stepped into the house, I was made to go was my paws in the toilet.

And while I was in the toilet, our guest made his appearance. A stray black and white cat crept out from beneath our sofa and was meowing. My M was utterly shocked and immediately closed the door to the kitchen (the toilet I was in was in the kitchen) and told Aunty P not to let me out coz there's a cat in the house. My MM opened the door and shooed the kitty cat away.

The funny thing was, when we were on our way to the lift earlier, my MM asked my M why she did not take the path on the right to the lift landing. Instead, she waited until another family walked past on the left side before we took that path on the left. My M then said it's because there was a stray cat on that side of the bushes for the last few nights and she didn't want me to get attacked.

I guess she never expected that the cat is not downstairs, because it's upstairs right in our house!

You guys must have been thinking, how did the cat get in without me knowing? Well, it was a humid sunday, so my M was in the airconditioned study the whole day and I was snoozing in the room with her. We left the main door opened with the gate locked, so the cat must have snuck in when Aunty P was busy. When I left the room, I was fed dinner and we went out immediately after that.

Well, the cat saga did not end just yet. This morning, a neighbour from another level asked us if we keep cats at home. She said that a cat has been pooping along the corridor around her area for many days and creating a stink and she just wants to check if the cat belongs to anyone. So my M told her we don't have cats, and she believed it's the same cat that snuck into our house.

And since I can't get close to the cat, I did the next best thing this morning. I rolled in cat poop when my M took me down for my early toilet break. I think she didn't really like it coz she scolded me and made Aunty P give me a bath. I don't know why I should bath on Monday when I've already had my bath on Sunday, but I decided it's wiser to keep quiet than to argue.

And that's the long story about the kitty cat. I do hope he comes back again, maybe he wanted to play with me?

Oh, what a sneaky little furball. That kitty cat is not scared of doggies I think coz it dared to walk inside your apartment. Rolling in kitty poop must be the best. Too bad you had to be washed down after that...
