a conversation with a stupid neighbor

While in the kitchen, i was alarmed by a succession of pellet gunshots coming from a neighbor’s house. I could see that he was targeting the wifi antenna on the roof of another neighbor whose house is just adjacent to mine. From my kitchen window, i could see that he is really hitting it because of the sound that it created upon hitting a metal object. He had the guts to aim at the wifi antenna because he knows that the house is vacated. And from the corner of my garage i could see him firing his pellet gun just everywhere hitting cans, rocks and plants. It looks like a machine gun with a big cartridge. I became so worried that he might hit someone or any of the pets or other stray animals in the street. Of course i have to do something. I went out and talked to this stupid neighbor. Here’s a TRANSCRIPT of our conversation.

Me: Is that a pellet gun? (i pretended i didn’t know)

Stupid neighbor: Yes. (he is totally avoiding seeing me eye to eye)

Me: Can you please stop firing it cause it may cause harm especially to cats. You see, i suspected that one of my outside cats got hit by a pellet gun.

Stupid neighbor: No, i just fire at one black cat because he jumps on my car and poo in my yard. The nerve!! What a stupid idiot!!! And i thought, i have a black cat that i regularly feed and luckily never stray away and never left my terrace since he walked in.

Me: Can you just shoo the cats away instead of firing at them with a pellet gun. It is very dangerous. 

Stupid neighbor: It wouldn’t kill the cat, this is just a pellet gun. Oh my gosh, he is so airy, conceited, arrogant, stupid and an idiot. Pellet guns could kill. He doesn’t even have a drop of common sense. What a stupid idiot!!! The stupid neighbor doesn’t have any respect for animals. I wonder how he treats his family. I could really feel my blood boiling but i tried to keep my cool.

Me: Please, don’t shoot at cats. It could really hurt and kill them. 

After our conversation, i’ve never heard of any pellet gunshots anymore today and i am hoping i would not hear it again forever. That stupid neighbor just made me very angry… boiling angry.

Upon arriving home i cuddled up with Tiger. Among all the kitties, he has the softest fur. Slowly, i could feel i am getting relaxed and Tiger is also getting relaxed as he really loves being cuddled.

Cats are really wonderful and magnificent creatures. They help in lowering the anxiety level. They calm the nerves, lower stress and soothe one’s feeling. Which by the way the stupid neighbor doesn’t know and see. Okay, forget about the stupid neighbor… hey Tiger, more cuddle time please. Mommy needs more…

the ugly frog turned into a handsome prince

Sometimes i am beginning to think that my blog is turning into a cat blog. It’s just that i wanted to share my love for these wonderful furry companions. They are my source of calmness as they ease away my tension and stress. Hearing them purr or just by stroking their smooth fur gives me a sense of well-being.

Ashton and his story.
When i rescued Ashton he was so skinny that i could see his protruding ribs, he’s wet, cold and shivering as it was raining that day. His eyes were dull, hazy and watery, his face looked so sad, had colds and wet at the bottom. My heart melted right away so i scooped him up and brought him home so i could give him a chance to live. I have never seen such a teeny-weeny kitty that rubs itself to my foot even if he fall and tumble and yet do it over and over again. Okay, that’s it. I cannot leave him there. It was as if he was begging me to pick him up and save him.

Now, several months later, he turned into a handsome prince. The DETAILS of his transformation is so clear. His eyes are now green and bright. He looks so happy now and healthy. He had defeated all his medical issues and blossomed into a perky, playful kitty. It took a lot of medication and loads of tender love and care to make him better and they are so worth it.

The lovely thing about these two photos is that little Ashton and the bigger Ashton is sporting that same kind of cute smile. So adorable.

journey of love and source of happiness

Motherhood is a PURPOSE. It is more than childbearing. It is a continuous journey of love, care and affection to the children, providing the greatest virtue, be the best teacher and mentor, be the greatest adviser and a good if not the best example of goodness for the child to learn and follow. Sooner, when they grow up and have their own lives to live, the cycle of life continues.

And what about you Star? What is your PURPOSE in mommy’s life? Of course mommy knows. Your purpose is to keep me company, my sleepbuddy, my joy, my source of happiness. You ease away my loneliness, heal me of all the pain with your purr, improves my mood and takes away all my emotional strains. I love you forever. 🙂
