A Break Through

December 25, 2006

This morning, I went back to the office to feed the kittens & Tua Tao was there.

Luckily I had an extra can of tuna with chicken & a capsule of cod liver oil. While I was preparing their meal, Tua Tao joined the kittens, weaving between my legs, giving head rubs.

Tua Tao finally approached me! I know he is doing this purely for food but it is still a big leap for him to initiate physical contact with a human.

The good news doesnโ€™t stop here. He looks better today than Wednesday. The scabs on his back came off. His left side looks better too. Although his skin looks raw, it looks like new skin to me. I hope his skin condition continues to improve. But I think I should change his name to Scar Face now.

After his meal, he came forward to smell my hand.

I was smiling all the way home in the train. People must think Iโ€™m crazy but I donโ€™t care. I am happy. So happy.

    I’m glad you had a joyful day…sometimes it’s the little things that can make us unexpectedly happy. I too had a happy day yesterday.

    Scarface (Mr Al Pacino?) trusts you and will soon be eating out of your hands. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad to see TuaTao is recovering. Maybe he is a bit puzzled that you had not shown up for the last few days, hence the friendliness.

    Glad it hasn’t been raining much.

    Merry Xmas. Miracles do happen.

    Miracle or not, I am just happy that he is initiating contact, even though they are baby ones.
