My animal housemates (part 2 of 4)

So here's part two of a four part series about the other animals that I live with.

This post will feature Gen Kitt, the local cat.

S found him 4 years ago. She was playing basketball with her friends when they spotted a couple of boys carrying what looked like a hamster. Curiousity got the better of them and they decided to check it out. And guess what? It turned out to be a few days old kitten. It's eyes were still closed and umbilical cord still attached. Those nasty boys stole Gen from his mummy!

Unable to put him back, S and her friends decided to take the kitten away from the boys as they obviously didn't know what they were doing. They wanted to pull out the cord, thinking that it was a wire!

S didn't have any intention of taking Gen home but she ended up with him. It was a good thing that there was a petstore nearby, so S bought some milk powder and a bottle. They called him Gen because he was born in January.

The other humans wern't too fond of him but grew to love him. For the next few weeks, S couldn't get a decent nights sleep with all the crying for milk and to be cleaned. S put Gen in a box with a cloth, and a hot water bottle.

Gen was the first cat S officially owned.

Unfortuntly, S didn't take many pictures of Gen when he was little. :( But she takes a lot of pictures of him and all of us now; always stuffing the camera up our noses.

Gen also used to come with me and S on our walks, and he'd follow us everywhere. Up till now, he follows us wherever we go.

Gen is like the neighbourhood gangster. He bullies all the stray cats. Haiz.

He also has this thing for boxes. It's weird

Gen Kitt is one great cat! He's my best feline friend. :D
