Batting eyelashes at me.. :D

The cat...and the awards...!!

Do you like cats? I do. Do you hate dogs...I do..!! No, not the puppies, the full grown canines. I hate them specially the stray kinds...why...?? Well simply because I don't understand why those furry little bastards attack these furry little angels. Whats the point? They don't eat them!!..then..??why..? I know cats hunt mice..but they eat them. Its no point in killing someone and not eating it!! Its unnatural...!! Incidentally, only dogs and humans kill for recreational purposes.

Anyways, this was all going through my mind while I was shopping for snacks. I knew Mom wouldn't allow me to have one in the house. A puppy would be fine by the way..huh. So on the way back, I kneeled down to scrub its neck and for the first time..it meowed..as if asking me to give it a ride to my place :d I couldn't resist..so I picked it up. It clanged on to my tee with its miniatures claws and kept meowing all the way.
Earlier, I had seen it on the way to the market. On the side of the road. It was snuggling itself in a small ball of fur!! I reached to touch it and it offered no resistance. There was a dog eying it a few yards across. I had to throw a few things to make it run away. The kitten was only a few days old.

As I reached home, my mom had that look of 'awe' + a hidden smile somewhere + a stern 'NO YOU CAN'T KEEP IT' written all over her face. Yes I deciphered all that. Incidentally, I am a good face-reader, at least thats what I believe. Nevertheless, I put it down on the floor and it crawled underneath my leg. sitting there with its tail wrapped around its body. It was shivering. I tried to amplify the 'hidden smile' part on my mother's face and she resisted. A few seconds and zillion requests later, she asked me to leave it where I had seen it. In middle of the road, in front of the "I kill adorable cats" dog..? I asked if there was any milk.. Mom: "You are not feeding..it..and it looks exactly like the last one".
Yes there was a "last one" it would come daily to have some milk, play a little bit and then leave. It died a year and half back. (Hunted down by those stray bastards) I have been asked sternly not to tame any cats ever since...because...allegedly the last one brought bad luck. Last year and a half has been so bad..that I just can't argue with that reasoning despite the fact that I don't believe in it.

So I finally gave up and took it back. I havn't talked straight to my Mom since. Its harsh coz we are practically the only people left to each other. But yes...I like hurting people especially the ones that I care about...coz in turn watching them get hurt...hurts me..so its an indirect technique to hurt myself. I am not a psychopath but yes, I like hurting myself.

P.S: My Mother may just have the last laugh...coz she made my fav meal today and I almost gave up the "I am not talking" emotion.. :D

In other news: One of my friends jumped off from a water tank about five feet from ground, bare-feet...on solid ground. He is currently draped in a blanket, like a cocoon and his both feet are swollen. Yes, I have a weird taste in friends. Which also reminds me of a generous lady who has..given me two b-e-a-u-tiful awards. Frankly speaking, she was the only hope for me getting any...and she sure is a savior....Thanks Preeti..mwuaaaazzz.. :)
So...here I have...

The I love you blogger award:I pass it on to Keshi and Philic.
and the rockstar one:
I pass this one on to Mayz, Keshi and Che (at least you look like one)

And because I can't give any of these back to you Preeti and I don't have any others, I have invented one eXclusively for you. Here it is then..
It sure is for you ;)

i don't hate dogs but i don't like them the way i used to when i was a kid.
some stray cat..BLack one..the ones you see in horror movies pure jet black had been a frequent visitor especially at night.
so in a nutshell i am scared of cats because of this black one it has startled me 10-12 times now in the night.
Congrats on your first awards and
i loved your innovation..hehe preeti u are so lucky.

I had 3 dogs ;) My parents chose dogs, actually there were always a dog and a cat when i was a kid. They were getting along and sleeping in the same basket together.
Y I prefer dogs it s because I first learn how to walk by grabbing my dog's tail while he was walking slowly to avoid me to fall. When I was upset and crying my dog was here, when i was sick he was here at the end of my bed watching me. Cats are more independent than dogs. None of my dogs ever killed a cat btw ;), actually one my dog got hit by a cat, the cat was on our doorway step, my dog could not go in the house ;(
Now my mum have cats, from the neighborhood she gave them name, feed them, they are the nicest cats i have ever seen, they almost gave me as much as affection my dogs gave me. I can t say the same thing for my dad s cat, she hates me, she is so jealous of me, she wants my dad for herself, she is acting like a princess!!!
I think that we have the tendency to like the animal ur parents have because we re getting used to it as a kid, but things change. I d like to have a cat now since i m living by myself, but when i ll get married or have kids specially i d like to have a nice dog not a sissy dog like a poodle or something (I hate poodles).

Che said...

I love dogs and I dont mind cats. i like animals. had a dog. have dealt with cats. both have pluses and minuses. But dogs are more affectionate. Cats act like they own this world and are doing you a favor by being around you :)

Comfortably Numb said...

Incidentally, only dogs and humans kill for recreational purposes.

LMAO!!! But then isnt it true.

Cheers!!

Nothingman said...

I like the other kind of pussy :)

Cats are Masters Of Humankind. We should realize this fact and spend our puny lives in service of cats.

:-)

Preeti said...

i am a little concerned about your methods of hurting yourself...
as far as dogs and cats go...well i like them from a distance. cats scare me. really. i like the wildcats though. on tv i.e.

Mystique Wanderer said...

i'm one of those...i love cats and dogs both...infact my love extends to many other creatures, monkeys, lizards...creepies and crawlies like cockroaches are where i get violent

but my comment is not really abt that...either u got ure measures wrong or ure frnd is really very very heavy...how does one get hurt jumping from 5 feet...thats like less then the height of ure body...

Zubin said...

@Cess:

"actually there were always a dog and a cat when i was a kid. They were getting along and sleeping in the same basket together."
Now thats what I am talking about...isn't that great...If that happens to all the dogs n cats in the world..it'll be a better place.. :D

"Y I prefer dogs it s because I first learn how to walk by grabbing my dog's tail while he was walking slowly to avoid me to fall."
wow..thats so sweet..I just can't stop but picturing..you as a l'll kid...doing that..so..sweet...

"actually one my dog got hit by a cat"
LMAO :P..sorry but can't stop laughing.. :p

"they almost gave me as much as affection my dogs gave me."
Exactly..all cats are not that non-affectionate..in fact only very few are...

Hey, I never really meant to say that I hate all dogs..In fact my friends have dogs..and they are all adorable..but the 'cat killers' I banish :D

You btw seem to have a great experience regarding pets...me..none.. :(..maybe you should courier some of them to my place.. :d

Zubin said...

@Che
"Cats act like they own this world and are doing you a favor by being around you"
Hehe...now thats what I am talking about.. :D Dogs BEG for pity...cats DEMAND attention.. :D..

@Comfortably Numb...

Cheers mate..

Zubin said...

@Preeti..Awwww....love you too.. :)
Me..??Rockstar..?? I'd love be that one day.. ;)..and I am flattered.. :)

About the 'hurting myself' thing..lets just forget that...sometime later maybe...It goes deep...can't really explain it here.. :)..

Zubin said...

@Mystique Wanderer

Really..what kind of lizards pal..the wild ones..??or those chameleons.. :)
Well I have my measures right..and my friend is actually very light..He is like a leaf in fact..once I blew wind through my mouth..and he floated 2 feet in air..well..ahem..coming back to reality...he had a wrong landing technique..probably.
Has twisted a finger..maybe..and has a minute fracture now.. :|

@Mini Mouse=Div

Thanks yaar..
and yeah they are so damn cute...just can't believe they fit into a cup..!! :D

Hmm..I think I phrased it incorrectly. I meant, when I am not talking to someone who really matters to me, it hurts me and knowing the fact that it was my choice not to talk, it hurts me even more.. :|
Things got back to normal today though.. :D

Zubin said...

@enchanted illusions:

LOL...believe me when a little pup or kitten licks something off you hand...food for instance..its one of the best feeling in the world...

No, I don't know its status.. :( and no..Mom..wouldn't say yes..I stopped asking.. :(

Keshi said...
