Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.-- James A. Froude (1818-1894)

He's BACK!!

It was 14 March 2009, exactly 1 month since IT, my cat went out & didn't return. Mom was still sad but had resigned to the fate that IT is has gone to heaven.

Then she heard a faint cry outside our apartment door. Mom thought it was another hallucination. She had heard cries before & opened the door so many times to find no cat there. This time when she opened the door, our little fellow, all skinny & hungry walked in. In between eating & drinking from his water bowl, he kept 'relating' his experience through wails, cries & rumblings in his huskier than usual voice.

A friend commented that he now has 8 lives left! Yeah, and his eating habit has changed too! He has developed a penchant for beef curry & rice.

A week later, he is back to his old size and rearing to go out again! We kept reminding him - "Big cat chase you", "big dog bite you", "big man chop, chop you up"! But 'boys' will be 'boys'.. he ventures out again but will come back by 12 midnight (or a little after) each night.
