Pets Are Man's Best Friends Forever

2 weeks ago, I went to meet Blogger Wenn at NU Sentral to collect some donations from her again. She always donated lots of biscuits for my weekly homeless feeding program which my wife & I work closely with the church team. It was always a "Hi & Bye" sessions with Wenn as she barely had time to chat much as the ETS train was coming. I would always encourage this very good mummy Wenn to spend more precious time in KL with her beautiful grown up children. I miss my mother very much and seeing Wenn's love & attention towards her kids really warms my heart very much. She is truly a very caring lady to her whole family and everyone who knows her including all the homeless people!!





It was a rainy day and I had missed the correct turning to find Wenn, so I simply parked my car illegally behind some lanes in Brickfields. I quickly ran towards the NU Sentral and passed something that captured my attention. It was a cat! The unusual thing was the cat was sleeping and nudging in between a drunkard man's legs on the corridor. The sight ran so much thoughts in my head as I walked on towards Nu Sentral. The cat must be familiar with this man to sleep bravely in between his legs. The man was probably the cat's Master and this kitty probably knew this Master was always stoned drunk until had to camp on the five foot ways. 30 minutes had passed and I bade farewell to Wenn before taking the same route back to collect my car with a heavy bag full of biscuits and coffee beverages from the generous Wenn. She must be a Bodhisattva's reincarnation to touch everyone's hearts this life with her charitable hands & thoughts. I am very sure after knowing her for so many years now.




The faithful cat was still purring and resting in between its Master's legs. I stopped and admired the cat's loyalty for kneading both paws to massage his smelly feet. Love is really unconditional and his stinky feet probably smelled like Sweet Roses to the cat. What a darling!

I always admired my friends who kept faithful dogs and beautiful cats at home as pets. They adored and pampered them all with so much attention and love. Pets are really good friends and could bring so much joy to keep loneliness away. As for me, I dare not keep any pets again because when they died, I cried buckets of tears and mourned for so long! Haiks!

  1. Did you check the man to ensure that he is still breathing?

  3. I remember a movie I watch years back about a dog who faithfully everyday will go to the train station to wait for the master coming back from work...

    2. Oh no, what a sad movie. I would cry buckets and rivers of tears. Should I watch this from YouTube?

  4. No pets for me too because I am also very emotional. I used to have a pet dog that I loved so much. When she was killed by a car, my heart broke into a million pieces. The sadness I felt was so profound, I cried so much and I don't want to go through that again.

    1. So sorry for your loss. Getting killed by a car is worse than dying of sickness.

  5. I guess the two of them share each other's Company.

    I try not be judgemental on others so I look at the photo of the cat snuggling up and smile.

    I love the company of cats too & our family spend quite a bit feeding Strays and they do become attach to us and trust us.

    & try to snuggle up if they have the chance!

    1. I truly agree with you about their friendship and bonding. I always remember how well your family have been treating stray cats. I wish there are more kind people like you who feed them with a ready bowl outside your house!

  6. Bless your heart, TM and your wife's and to blogger Wenn and to all who works hard for your weekly homeless feeding program.

    I use to work in our basement until we adopted three kittens (they're brothers) first quarter of last year. I work in our living room now. The cats warm my feet while I work there.

    1. While I try to avoid keeping pets, I do think that it is necessary to keep at least a dog or cat when one gets very old and living alone.

  8. I agree that Wenn is generous and kind, just like Anay too. I am proud to know both of you through blogging.

    1. Thank you for your very kind words. I think Wenn is an extra-ordinary kind woman who goes all out to help her friends. She carried heavy boxes of biscuits by hand to pass to me. I really believe that she was sent down from heavens.

  10. I have a dog with me for almost 10 years. I really can't imagine what if one day she leaves me behind.

    1. I think you need to get another dog when this one gets too old. It will have a new friend and not feel bored while preparing you when the older one goes to Rainbow Bridge.

  11. Same with me. I rather do not keep any pets. I have 3 kids so another pet is a problem to me. Lol.

    1. LOL. Your kids and having pets would bring different joy together. I often wondered how those kind samaritans could keep and feed over 50 dogs at home!

  12. To be honest, I'm not really an animal lover because I'm very sensitive to smell >_<

  13. Tan, you post reminds me of my princess Candy who left us last year. It’s a heart-warning sight, but don’t think I’ll adopt another pet again.....

      I am sorry for your loss but keeping a new identical pet could heal aching hearts sometimes.

  14. Yeah , I’m like you. I can’t take it if my pet will passed away after caring it for so long! Of course, I also got no permit to get one from my wife. The two kids in my home already bising enough ... muahahhaha..
    I hope to meet Wenn too and get some free cookies! Heheheh

    1. This is not a difficult thing to do when knowing the leftovers would feed many hungry and homeless people. I have seen many homeless people who live in cardboard homes nightly in downtown Tokyo. The worst homeless areas I had seen was the Smoky Mountains in the outskirt of Manila. So Sad.

  16. You are right, it's not easy to miss a pampered pet and being a owner of one i experience the companionship with our pet dog and we both maintain a distance actually but care indeed! Really nice to hear about the service of Wenn being a busy mom.

  19. My little Ayden has been requesting for a pet puppy or kitten for so long but I always have to decline him. Getting a pet is a huge responsibility and with the kids' busy schedule, I am afraid I will end up having to care for it in the end, making me busier. But I told him, when he is grown up and live on his own, he can have all the pets he wishes for as by then, he will definitely have to care for them himself :D

    1. Yes it is not easy to keep pets as they are just like another member of the family that also needs a bath and different food. The pets cannot join the family for long holidays.
      Someday he might keep a dozen pets when he has grown up. Wakakakaka

  20. This cat has found the warmth she needs. I probably won't have a live-in pet. I feel sad leaving them behind in the house alone should I travel or have to be away for long hours ..kakaka. But I have pigeons - they keep me company and make me laugh with their antics!

  21. Hi TM...thanks for all your kind compliments.
    Anyway, I just do what I can to help needy people. And you are one of my platforms. Thanks a lot for taking the effort to meet me. I really appreciate your kindness too!
