Mimi is now a offical "gonggong" & Lessons learnt from feeding cats

Linda, sister and I trapped mimi on Wed,26 July. Actually sister and I did not do anything, we only asked mimi to follow us and feed him. At first,we tried to put the food inside the carrier. But smart mimi refused to come close, he even gave a meow of protest. After some try, linda said to put the food on the floor and asked me to catch him..i am terrified of scratches after the first experience as mimi is really wild when i last caught him.

so i told linda that i will not touch mimi. As i placed the food on the floor, mimi finally came to eat the food. Linda then grabbed mimi from behind and forced him into the carrier. Poor mimi, he was vvv angry and kept making angry meow. Linda took him to the malay family whom would send mimi down to sterilization on thur, 27 july.

Linda said mimi got a bloody nose as he tried to bump on the wall of his carrier. We saw mimi yesterday, he did have a 'black' nose, other than that, he appear to be well and that is least mimi is now a official gonggong and hopefully, he will not be captured by anyone..i always say that mimi's two black patches on his body looked like 'tian yan' (heaven's eyes) and this two eyes are meant to protect him and his other friends in the wild from 'evil humans'.

Hmm..linda told me the town council called her that two girls were feeding strays in our area..if u gusss correctly, ya, the two girls are sister and me. asked linda what was the reason for complaints. Linda said that that was not a complaint. The officer wanted to ensure that we feed 'secretly' so that there will not be any complaints.

It make me feel gross that ppl actually called town council to say things that "i saw two girls feeding cats"... so yucky when i think of why they ever make such a senseless call..can't they think of better things to do...Anyway, i felt that it is not really safe to feed them in our area but i had no choice since i had 'fall in love' with them. I will try to changing my feeding place and time often so that we will not be easily spotted by bird-brain people. Mum said that if i do not feed, linda will feed..i replied that if linda did not feed ler, then they will be hungry. Now i understans why some people feed at odd hours like 3 am..


The lessons learnt from feeding cats:
1) Always change your location to feed them
2) Always change your time to feed them
3) If possible, appear at odd hours like after midnight
4) Try to feed with family members - one will be the 'eye' to see if anyone is spying on cat feeder while the other is fussing with the cats
5) Pick up every litter -grains of rice that you feed them - evidence gone
6) Stare back at those kapos that keep staring at you like you are an alien. Normally, people will pretend that they did not stare by looking other places. The Abnormal will still stare actually.
7) Maintain low profile - feed at the darkest corner that you can find - dun worry abt the "seven month" as cats can sense what is natural or unnatural
8) Avoid the dog owners - i had a feeling that maybe some people whom complained may be the dog owners as i sometimes meet them while feeding the cats. If you cannot avoid, do a detour.
9) Ensure that you do not feed two cats that will fight with each other at the same place. - For me, i will feed san pi pa first, then ran off to find mimi. Nowaday, i no longer find baby, ring ring or xiaobai as they do not appear at the same place as mimi and ginger. And further, baby will follow us to mimi's area. Then baby will chase mimi and san pipa will chase baby. In this case, their loud meow might disturb the residents and lead to some complaints.
10) Avoid leading your cats into people's path - there was once when i used to feed xiaobai and friends in the park..i do not actually lead them but they sort of follow me after i fed them. I remembered xiaobai, baby and ring ring followed me. There was two women - one commented that those cats should be send to SPCA. I am really pissed to hear that. Mimi is really smart, normally he will cleverly avoid the people walking on the pavement. If we did see people nearby, we will stopped for one min, the cats will also stopped and waited. Once the coast is clear, we will then go on.
