Tribute to Sushi part 1
A little over 3 months ago we were at the hawker and we ran into this poor scrawny cat. My husband decided to stop and pet the poor kitty. This cat look emaciated and could use also a shower. I was surprised at how friendly the cat was. I ran to buy a small bag of cat food and scooped a bit of it with my hand and gave it to the hungry cat. She seem grateful and happy because as she was eating the food we laid on the floor, she would periodically look at us. My husband wanted to bring her home with us. Ive always been a sucker for adopting strays. HOwever on this case, I was a little hesitant to get this one. I was just afraid that the cat may have some weird disease and pass it to our 2 other cats. Another reason was for the past year we have been perpetually broke. The idea of getting another cat, an adult one at that, just was not a good idea. So we walked away after giving this white cat some of that friskies.
A few days later, we went to the hawker after coming home from ICA. We were exhausted and starving. Aside from that we had no money and we were counting the last few coins we had to pay for our lunch. We saw the white cat again. This time it was trying to play with some patrons at the hawker. The cat really tried hard to win this guy over. She was being playful and was even rubbing her body on the guys leg but he shooed it away.
On our way out of the hawker, we saw it again. This time, my hubby tried to call the cat and for some strange reason, the cat followed us. It followed us out of the hawker, to the parking lot, through the playground, right to the void deck of our block and finally to the elevator. We live on the 13th floor. Guess what, she decided to get off that floor with us too!
