Kathu (as Talin named him)- our dear cat. سبحان الله. He came back home after a small surgery. We missed him really and felt so bad when we visited him post surgery in slightly sedated condition. Read it till the end – this is not about the cat, but your beloved little kids.
We found him as a small kitten of around 2 weeks in a park in Riyadh who was so exhausted and abandoned. We rescued him and took home. He became active in less than a day and started mingling with our family especially the little ones, Talin and Ehan. He is part of our family since then. He’s almost a year now.
Doctor from Aleef World, Riyadh said he hasn’t come across such a cat in his tenure so far. He’s a mixed American-Persian breed. Kathu didn’t let them do any post-operative injections once the sedation was reduced, not even shower, they couldn’t give him the dose of vaccination. He bit two of assistants when they tried to groom him.
He found very happy and relaxed when we came to take him last night. He recognized us and came out himself out of the cage though he appeared in a little pain. He showed his zeal and raised his hand against the doctor when he tried to check on him in our presence. He made a grunting gush at the doctor when he tried to check him again with an angry face while his expression changed totally when my wife and I called his name. We never found him angry or clawing even if our little naughty Ehan beats him at times. He just licks him instead.
Let me testify it here, in the age of gadgets and social media splurge, pets are indeed blessing and bliss a family can have. Your kids can turn their attention from all these electronic nuisance that changes their behavioral pattern substantially. Mingling with the pets, they learn to love, adore, care, be kind, playful and so on. They’d not be cornered to cartoons which are strategically developed in a way to lure you and your lovely kids for their lucrative commercial benefits beyond what you see on screen, but in the form of apparels, gadgets, amusement parks, etc. Capitalists care a damn for your innocent child, but you do.
You could adopt a pet who may need help from the scorching weather, decide today. I’m sure Amina Zerine couldn’t agree with me more though she was skeptical initially about taking the little Kathu home to the midst of two little naughty kids.
Kathu, you made our day.
