They don’t even have names yet but they have already changed our lives.
Why do I say that they have changed our lives? Well, because Speedy never felt any affection for the cats we had in the past — the stray ones we adopted. They were terrified of him. When he came out of the bedroom, the cats would scamper to the garden.
But now, Speedy’s like a new daddy. He lets the kittens sleep on his tummy. He buys their accessories. He plays with them. He feels anxious when they’re out of sight. He doesn’t scream when they make a mess…
Last night, the male kitten tried to jump on my lap, didn’t make it and started to slide down my thigh. The pesky thing hung on with his nails. He gave me scratches galore on my left thigh. I called him, “Asar” and, from the bedroom, Speedy shouted, “Bawal pagalitan!” He’s a changed man. And that means the entire household is more relaxed because he is less irritable with the kittens in the house.
