Lucky Turns Mommy
A couple of weeks after we took Lucky in, Ronald announced that she was pregnant. I would not have known as no lump was obvious. But if the catman says cat is with child, then it must be so.
Ronald and I were booked to travel to Europe to visit his family on the first of September. So we had to leave Lucky alone during her pregnancy. In late November 2011 after three months, I returned to the Philippines to find a mama cat shielding two very tiny babies huddled under the outdoor kitchen sink in the back of the house.
I took Lucky and her fragile-looking babes into the kitchen and arranged a place in one corner where they could be comfortable. All remaining thoughts of giving Lucky up vanished after seeing this heartwarming sight of a protective mother cat showering her little ones with so much tender attention.
We named the black-topped beauty Oue, and her twin brother, Aiko.
