Greyie Shared His New Found Toy

On the evening of 4 June 2009, just like any other days, I went down to feed the cats. I always feed the kittens at the TNB area where I put a container and replace its water every day for their consummation.

Anyway, only Sweetie and Snowie showed up that evening. Nevertheless, I fed both of them and at the same time in a lookout for Greyie. Half an hour had passed. There was still no sign of Greyie. Since both Sweetie and Snowie were done eating, I decided to leave. As I was about to, I saw him carrying something in his mouth walking very cautiously along the bushes.
As he approached the TNB area, I was horrified to see him carrying a gecko in his mouth, and was pretty much relieved once I realized it was a dead gecko.

He was tossing and throwing the dead gecko in the air with his mouth as well as nabbing and lifting it with his little front paws. He was so engrossed that nothing, not even my biscuits could make him stopped playing with his new found toy. Therefore, together with his siblings, we decided to watch him play.

All of a sudden, he stopped playing, walked to the container and started nibbling at the biscuits. He must have either got hungry or bored with his new found toy. Snowie who had been eyeing the dead gecko from the beginning decided to take over the fun while Sweetie looked on and waited anxiously for his turn. It would be a shame not to share such a good fun toy, wouldn’t it?

Disappearance Of Sweetie

I was out of town for a week. When I came back, I went about to feed the cats as usual, and was looking so forward to see the kittens. I saw his siblings, Greyie and Snowie but not Sweetie. I thought to myself that he must have missed my calling and failed to show up.
The next day, he failed to show up again. I began to worry about his safety knowing that the Notorious Black Male Cat has been terrorizing them. I went looking for him around the area where these kittens normally spend their time. But, no sign of him at all.
He failed to show up the following day, the day after and it has been a week since he disappeared. I do not think he was adopted by someone. Most likely, he was driven away by the Notorious Black Male Cat.
I was very much saddened by his disappearance for I do love this kitten very much.
