In Memory of Our Cutie Chubby Kitty Taekwoon

Every morning when we wake up our kittens were already waiting behind our main door so when we opened it they will excitedly run inside our house to play and asked for food. Today, there is something different one kitten (Taekwoon) is missing and we can’t found him everywhere, we search here and there but he isn’t around. It is peculiar because it is not his norms to be not around in the morning.

My sister search around and asked neighbors were one of them says that they found a dead cat which looks like a mother cat that was been a victim of hit and run just about an hour ago, were told that they throw it in the irrigation canal.  I have asked the kid who found the dead cat what does it looks like and show here a photo of Taekwoon in my phone and her answer is positive, it was the dead cat she found in their yard. It turns out at night Taekwoon loves to run across the street and after reaching the other end he will run back home.

Taekwoon (May 28, 2016 – December 02, 2016)

Sad, my sister went searching along the irrigation canal and when she returned it was indeed Taekwoon, cold and wet.  It was very painful to see the sweet, chubby and playful Taekwoon in such condition, it was just last night when I cuddle and feed him, it was just last night when he cried into my ears but now he is gone.

Taekwoon was born on May 28, 2016 as the eldest of Monina’s four kitties. His feature is very distinguish because of his long ears, red nose and chinky eyes, when he was younger he looks like a rat than a cat. Surely our cutie Taekwoon will be forever be missed, our chinky eyes kitty will be always in our heart. In heaven, your playground will be more wider with no cars, bikes to fear around.

Why Do Cats Eat Grass?

Kittens are indeed cute and adorable, I was busy preparing the moringa leaves that we are going to mixed with the pork ginger soup when my sister call me from the outside, she is saying something about “Jiyong”, our orange kitten which annoys me thinking why I have to be called when she’s there to look after the kitten.

It turns out the kitten climb into the drift wood and made some faces while enjoying the sunlight and my sister is asking me to take some photos of Jiyong. We put the kitten on leash because she is having a diarrhea and it is quite dirty to let the kitten inside our house in her state. It has been a few days since I put the kitten near the grassy field every morning so she could eat some grass to cure her stomach problem. Well it was just my observation that our older cats eat some grass and then throw up  afterwards, I have read somewhere that cat eat grass to cure their stomach ache and eating grass can help to  clear their stomach of fur, feathers, parasites or bones, which can irritate the digestive tract or even cause more lasting illness. I have noticed since a few days ago our kitten’s poop improved a bit unlike before that her poop just leak anywhere and anytime.

Jiyong: The Cute Orange Kitten Found in the Public Market

Meet the newest member of the family, Jiyong. We found her in the public market one evening, we are walking along the vegetables market when my sister see her roaming around, I immediately picked her and at first I was hesitant to bring her home with a thought that maybe someone owns the kitten and I’ll be in trouble if seen taking it away.

Cute Orange Kitten

My sister then told me just to bring the kitten home because nobody owns it, it was just one of the cats that scavenging in the market.  Jiyong as my sister named her is a playful, soft and lovable kitten, when she first arrived home she doesn’t response when called but later on when I called for food she will be the first one to run ahead of me.

Jaebeom: The Cute Hyper-Active White Kitten

On one of the three kittens that we found in the garbage pit the smallest one was the one I adore so much, my family named her Jaebeom after the main character in a Koreanovela they’ve watch recently. Jaebeom has a twisted foot but she is a very active kitten who runs and plays a lot but things changed when our dog bit her when she run after the chicken bone I had thrown, our dog thought that little Jaebeom will stole her bone so she become very angry at her. I immediately pick the bleeding kitten, I was in awe because I was just getting the bowls to feed them, my sister and I immediately look for the kitten’s injury but we didn’t find any, the kitten’s primary foot were left paralyzed and was very scared that when we dropped her in the floor she will run quickly to hide her head somewhere.

The incident accidentally happened last night and until today little Jaebeom wasn’t able to eat yet and still scared, so I bought milk powder in the store and force feed her. The good thing her two other siblings take care of her, cleaning her when necessary. I hope little Jaebeom will get stronger and feel better in coming days because she is such a cutie, and she also knows how to play cute in front of a camera.

Kat-kat : The Playful Kitten from the Surplus Shop

Shopping for second hand clothes when they are on huge sale is one of the things I enjoy the most, it is somehow therapeutic for me. We normally do it in well-knows surplus shop but a few months ago we decided to go to a smaller surplus shop because they were on sale that day. While looking around the surplus clothes a kitten passed by, the sale lady picked it up and when she put it down I picked it up and give it a touch. The sales lady then asked me if I want to bring the kitten home,  I check it first if the kitten is a male or female since we already have a lot of kittens at home we have adopted from the street.

White Orange Kitten

The kitten was a male, so I have asked if the owner is giving it away, the sales lady replies yes just asked his “Kuya” but we told her she should do it for us since we don’t know his employer so she did, and the surplus shop owner gave it to us and we bring the kitten home.  I named him “Kat-kat” derived from the surplus shop’s name, Kat-kat Ukay-Ukay.

Kat-kat is such a playful kitten, he plays a lot from wires to rags. On his first three weeks at home, it was a pain to teach him where to litter. He keeps doing it in my father’s room below the cabinet and speakers, I almost give up cleaning his smelly poop. We decided not to let him in during the night because we noticed he just do littering inside at night, and during the day he did it in the sand but Kat-kat is such an intelligent cat when he found a way how to get inside by following the older cats but his ways didn’t change he still poop inside because it seems he is so lazy to go outside but when my father built windows in his rooms and Kat-kat grow a bit older he already learned to do his business outside. What a relief that was!

Adopting Kitten from the Street

It was less than a month ago when we found her in the highway, trying to survive and we bring her home and named her Jinjii. Yeah right, we are on our way to gasoline station when we saw a cat in the highway eating a piece of bread I can’t control myself and shout “Ming” we discussed if we are going to pick it or not, and when we returned back we stopped and my sister went by the neighborhood to ask if someone owns the cat, well nobody owns it so my sister took the kitten with her, one gas attendant sigh with relief saying “finally someone felt pity with the kitten” it turns out it was surviving there for days already.

Calico Kitten

Since we are still going to the market we brought the kitten with us even when we stop at the bakery. When we reached home our adult cats specially Junsu was not happy with the kitten’s presence so when we turn our back for a minute he immediately grab the kitten in the neck trying to suffocate it, luckily my sister was able to grab the kitten again, since that incident we are extra careful with Jinjii, I fed her at top of the cabinet while looking after her and even secure her with temporary cage to avoid the older cat from grabbing her when we are sleeping.

Today, the kitten was not a threat anymore to the older cats; they’re already friends and play together.

It has no name yet so when my sister asked me what’s going to be her name I immediately answered “Gwiyomi”  as it the new trend of music and I think the name fits to her.
