Snowie, The Remaining Sibling

Ever since the disappearance of her siblings, Sweetie and Greyie, Snowie is the remaining feline wandering about alone without having any of her siblings to play with.
Whenever she sees me, she would straighten her tail and ran toward me. I guess I am the only friend or family member she has now. I believe she knows quite well that I would feed and spend some time with her.

These pictures were taken when she had a bit of mange on her ears. I applied medicine on her ears on alternate days for about two to three weeks. I was totally elated to find that they got better by the day. I was actually very impressed that she lied down quietly and allowed me to cure her ears. She is indeed a very mild mannered cat.

She has grown into a very beautiful adult cat. A month or two ago, she was tailed by a male cat. Being her first time, she had no experience at all. She hissed and fought with him when he tried to approach and mount her. If I were around, she would hide behind me. I was her protector!

I have been checking her tummy and I don't see any sign of pregnancy. I am not sure but I don't think she is pregnant!

Disappearance Of Greyie

He is my favourite kitten since he was a baby. My love for him grew even more when he and his siblings were abandoned by their mother at such tender age.
It has been more than two weeks since Greyie disappeared. I couldn't find him anywhere within the apartment area. He used to hang about at the Thai Muslim restaurant, and I had no problem in finding him and his siblings. All I had to do was to whistle and they would come running to me.

The last few days before his disappearance, I found him and his remaining sibling, Snowie, spending a lot of time at the Mamak restaurant, which is located at another apartment block. I had to bring them back to their 'territory' to feed them because I wanted them to stay at where they were before.

The day before he disappeared for good, I could still remember he rubbed his body all over my feet, and as usual, he wanted me to rub his head with my hands. Looking into my eyes, he meowed several times while thrusting his head against my palm. When I stopped rubbing, he asked for more and I obliged. I thought it was rather peculiar for never before did he ask for such request.
I guess I know now. That was most probably his way of thanking me and to bid me farewell. If I say I do not miss him, and do not worry about his safety wherever he may be, I am lying to myself.
