Kittu sits outside the kitchen almost all day

Kittu is a foodie to the core! He is always hungry. Well, he might be hungry also because he is bored, but his interest in food cannot be denied! Most of the time he sits in front of the kitchen door. I guess he fears he might miss out on his kibbles. Continue reading

Kittu is always behind the maid, carpenter, electrician, plumber etc. He follows them, explores their tools and observes their work. He is particularly in love with the maid; rather all the maids we have had yet. He enjoys catching and dodging the broom and the mop. Every time after the maid finishes sweeping the apartment, he walks through or sits on the accumulated dust. He also enjoys catching the loose ends of bed sheets, duvets and covers when the maid is spreading them. Thankfully, most of our maids have enjoyed the cute disturbances.

We knew that cats are interactive and responsive animals, but we didn’t know that they are entertaining too until Mr. KitCat or our very own Kittu came along. Kittu represents naughtiness, naivety and is full of antics. It is a deadly combination. There is never a dull moment at our home. Every hour is happy hour!

We returned to the veterinary clinic after a month or so. The doctor accepted KitCat for vaccination, microchipping and registration. It was a short and quick process. KitCat was given three injections; one for rabies, one combined injection for killing viruses that are known to cause feline rhinotracheitis, calici and panleukopenia and the last one for inserting the microchip. KitCat shrieked. He hissed and spat. He was very angry. Three injections were a lot to take in one go; the microchipping process must have hurt him a lot. The doctor also gave him a tablet for deworming.

We were reading a lot about how to care for KitCat’s health. We had started following animals’ groups and veterinary clinics on Facebook to get tips and useful information on caring for her. From all that, we gathered that in order for KitCat to be a lawful resident, we needed to register her with the local municipality. For that, we first needed to get her the mandatory rabies vaccine and then get her microchipped at a veterinary clinic. If a registered pet gets lost, it can be tracked and returned to its owner/s; others are likely to face unfortunate consequences.
Siddharth Dyal has many dogs and puppies. He has grown up with the pooches and is very attached to them. A dog may be a man’s best friend; however, in this case, they are like inseparable siblings.

We hadn’t named the kitten for quite some time. We weren’t sure what to name her. We were considering Sugar and Snow because of her pure white fur. Yet, we weren’t feeling convinced of either. Meanwhile, we were addressing her with some common ‘pet’ names such as Sonu.
