First of all…I am sorry I haven’t been able to update my turtle’s blog. I had a one week holiday and been away from the computer for a while. When I had time to turn on my PC, I was busy with my own blog (sharing my trip to Mount Papandayan).
The holiday is almost done and I have important news to share :)
There’s a new family member in my house (not in my school’s dormitory).
My family house has a terrible rat/mouse attack lately. We had done everything we could to get rid of them but they seemed to multiply at incredible speed. One day, a wild cat came to our house and caught one of the baby mouse. She was really good in catching those mouses. Because of her ability, we decided to adopt the cat. Not a full adoption, she can come and go as she pleases. She is still as wild as she wants to be.
Before we adopted her, we didn’t give her any food because she kept catching the mouse. But them she started stealing our food, like chicken and fish. We finally realized that even though she could catch the mouse but she was still hungry, we couldn’t scold her for stealing our food…so we adopted her.
I gave her a name. She is called Uci, a short version of kucing (cat is Indonesian language).
I didn’t bring my camera home, I could only take her picture using my lousy mobile phone camera:
Now, Uci is free to come and go but we always prepare breakfast for her and lunch when she is around during that time. She often sleeps inside the house because the mice are most active at night but sometimes she sleeps outside.
I honestly think that she is pretty for a female cat :) She likes to be touched and petted…I was quite surprised to learn that a wild cat likes being petted.
I don’t know how long she will be in our house but we welcome her every time she comes :)
Our only concern is what will happen when she gets pregnant…No one in the family can accept baby cats. We will think about it once she gets herself pregnant.
