..a cat, blind as a bat..

..let us pause a while..
and imagine that we do no have the sight to see..
will we be just as blind? ..
like those that have eyes to see?..


..blind Mekbu with her litter of two, Jin and Jan..


how I take for granted..
this ability to see..
like as if it is my right..
when it is only God's gift to me...



..Mekbu, a week old..resting on her mother, Ayam..

that I may see..


....a month later, an affliction to her eyes rendered her blind..

the twinkle in your eyes as I held your close..
the red of your cheeks..
your lush wet lips..
imprints from a kiss...


..trips to the vet failed to get her sight back...
...it is incurable, they said..

or a walk in the dark..
where shadows lurk..
and trees swaying..
from unseen breeze...



..but for Jin and Jan, she's their mother..
blind or not..

but, above all, that I may read...
Your Words..

love these cats.. i wish i can have one.. just one, but unfortunately, i can`t.. my sisters do not allow me to keep the cat in the house just because they have been scratched by the cat when they was kid... T_T

pakmat said...

sifu..kucing buangan diBachok bersepah..salah saorang hambaAllah yang mengutipnya ialah Tuan Haji Suhaimi, Pengurus Maybank, Bachok..berguni makan kucing dibeli..

faraulah..kesian lagi yang with eyes but did not see..

anatalia..once a cat trusts you, like most cats that I know, they will not scratch you..study first, cats, (toms or tabbies) later..no hurry, young lady..

please take care, all you guys..

Dear Pakmat,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking good care of Mekbu and her brood. May I ask another favour? Now that she has produced kittens, could you please take her to the vet and *snip snip*? My kudos to the kind-hearted banker in Bachok too. Yeah, never take anything for granted and syukur with whatever we have. purrr....meow!

..Dear Cat..
..yes, we intend to..next month, as soon as Jin and Jan weaned of her milk..I will post about it..:) thanks for the encouragement..
..take care..
