Down the Memory Meow Lane

A few entries ago, when Anya and Kareltje awarded me with the World's Best Cat Mom award, my thoughts suddenly ran through all the cats that have touched my life, some of the happiest times in my life, some briefly, and some deeply. Suddenly I missed them all so much.
This morning, I managed to dig some old photos stored in the boxes (now on the shelf) from my college and university days, and hey presto! I found two of my favourite cats, Gumiaow and Titanic. Their brief story here.

Gumioaw.....the pretty lady!
Gumiaow, is named after a mandarin word that we learnt in class. "Gu" if I'm not mistaken is a word for 'cat' and 'miaow'......well, take a guess! She appeared at the doorstep one day, and we were taken to her almost at once and adopted her immediately. Loving and adorable baby.

Titanic!! Handsome hero!

Titanic, or 'Titan' in short and a real handful and playful fella. We picked him up among the siblings for adoption because he was the naughtiest looking and screams the loudest at 2 weeks old. We wanted to take 2 kittens, but the owner, probably known us as foreign students, only allowed us to take one. But we thanked him all the same. Wise guy...!

Hey Gattina

Yes, he does looks a lot like Rosie. Same tuxie black and white type. :) Unfortunately they don't live forever, or live as long as us humans...

Hello Anya

I will always remember them with fond memories..! They have been a part of my life at some point, and made me very very happy. Titanic is sure cute... :)
