Hmmm... It's a usual monday morning, but yes, i wasn't late for work today. Drove myself over to work. Straight to the computer, doing stuff.
anyway, there is this little kitten that was thrown over to the office compound last week. it always kept on crying. when i first saw the kitten, it wasn't even able to walk around much, seemingly limping around due to some problem with the kitten's hind legs. after being taken cared by my coworkers, well, it grew stronger everyday and just today, it kept on climbing out of its makeshift cage. we have no other way but to just let it walk around in one of the rooms, the one with less people occupying the room.
anyway, it kept on following people. i think it is following anybody's feet. :) hehe :) i think that is all the kitten sees. :) hehe :) but it still kept crying. the kitten was really noisy the whole afternoon. i finally understood why Caroline told me that she was having a headache due to the cat's meowing. the meowing is really loud and you can hear it even if the door to the room is closed. i was in the same room today because i wanted quiet while reading articles that i have to choose for the upcoming newsletter publication. and boy, did i have a headache as well. it kept meowing and meowing. at times, it just wanted milk, to be fed. other than that, it would follow my feet around. the kitten's walking real fast now. well, at least it is getting its strength back.
after work hours, i kinda stayed behind for a while because my supervisor has to talk to me about some other details of the current publication's articles. after that, i was left for a while. the kitten just went over to my feet and just stayed by my feet. it sat down and then i guess it fell asleep. it was suddenly so quiet in the room. i just stayed there, not moving, not wanting to wake up the kitten - not just because it's now quiet, but also because it finally got to stop crying and got to rest. i realized during the afternoon that the kitten's behaviour of following our feet was because it thought our feet are its mother. i guess it felt safe with our feet. hehe :) that's how i felt when it quiet down as we stayed together in the room in silence. :) it felt nice though, to make a little kitten feel comfortable and safe. :) we just stayed together in silence until Caroline got back. :) hehe :) of course now, there's another set of feet to play with. :) haha :)
but as you observe the kitten, small enough that it can stand on all fours on your palm, sleeping and resting soundly and comfortably by one's feet makes me smile. :) i just observed it and kept it company as it finally got to stop crying and just rest. :) i felt somewhat happy and special that i was able to give the kitten some "quiet time" to rest. :) that even if i didn't know what it really wanted, i was able to keep the kitten company. :) hehe :) or probably the kitten just likes my white socks. :) hehe :) but still, you get my point. :)
i was kinda joking around. if the kitten still keeps coming over my feet, i have to give it a name. we were thinking of one. :) hehe :) i thought, how about Aja? :) well, i dunno how it is spelled in korean(hangul), but in chinese it is "加油!" or something like "go! you can do it! go go go!" in english. an encouragement. :) hehe :) well, in a way i feel it matches becuase it kept on going and got better and stronger. :) haha :) but i don't if the cat will respond to the name. hehe :) but i started referring to it as Aja. ;) hehe :) i just heard from Caroline that they fed the kitten some bread. ;) hehe :) she said that the kitten ate a lot - got a really healthy appetite then. :) hehe :) actually, there are lots of cats in the compound already. let's see, around 7, and sometimes with the additional strays they total to 10. most of the cats are sort of adopted by the office staff. haha :)
haha :) what a day! :) spending it with a kitten. :) hehe :) and in a way, for me, its a good thing that i wasn't tying any "knots" in myself today. :) aaahhhh.... :D
