..have you ever..

..I wrote this more then a year ago, when Ayam, our pet tabby delivered her litter of seven...

..have you ever wake up at five in the morning to pee, drowsy with interrupted sleep, you hear through the reigning silence noises at the back..only to discover that your pet tabby is in labour..? and for the next hour and a half you sat with her, through her labour and deliveries, stroking her head and womb, giving words of encouragement...and hearing the wheesh sound as a kitten emerged..?..seven in all..? and she looks up to you plaintively, licking her litter as she does..?

..Lord, with just one favour, You filled an ocean, held up the stars..and filled this cat's womb with 7 lives..


..sometimes cats showed more human traits than us..

Tatak,
Must have been quite an experience. Since we don't keep any pets, never had the chance to experience such a thing.

Pak Mat, salam.
Normal deliveries or C- sections, never fail to astound me, although it has become almost my daily routine.I am blessed with this very rewarding profession. To be a part of the joyous moment in parents life, witnessing and helping to bring the new baby into this world. each time, i pray..the newborn will become a good muslim, permata hati ayah dan ibu. and yes, it reaffirm my faith in His blessing.
