When Woof Women Meow

by Achilles Wong

Since day one, the Ilonggo House had always been a house for dogs and dogs alone… Okay, maybe there are a few humans living there but still it IS a dog’s house, that is until…

Ummm… manang? We’re over here…

Surely, you can’t be serious.
That is a CAT!
I know. I know… it’s your LASIK, right?

Manang had just undergone LASIK last August. I think she is still suffering from blurring vision or something. That has got to be it. I can’t think of any possible reason for her behavior. Why would a bona fide woof woman such as her associate with the ‘enemy’? Aren’t dogs supposed to be enemies with cats, just like that in the TV?

This makes me sick… Just look at that orange ball of fur. He is basking in sheer joy… Manang never rubs my chin like that.

Arggghhh… Do I hear purring?
Why I! I never purr.
She doesn’t rub my chin enough to make me purr.
So what if I can’t purr.
The point is, she is rubbing his chin, which she never does to me.

Truth is, I never had problems with Gring Gring at all. I just think he is a little snotty for not wanting to play with me. Eversince we moved in, I had always wanted to play with him but I was comparably bigger and manang said my rough playing was not just cutting it. On the sidelines, I just contend myself with looking at him while manang feeds him yummy cat food.

Come to think of it, Gring Gring is one friendly cat. Manang said that I should try to understand him more because he doesn’t have a permanent home nor a family to cuddle with. He is a little aloof when inside the house and is not used to being cooped up indoors so manang cannot keep him especially since she is not too sure about how we can keep peace inside the house with me and Gring Gring around.

Manang allows Poopie to play with Gring Gring. Meanwhile, poor little me was left inside our cage even after I begged and promised her that I will try not to play too roughly. Surprisingly, the two teeny furballs hit it off quite nicely.

In the end, it was: Poopie -1; Gring Gring- 2 and Aki- 3 hours of detention

CAT ATTACK! Be careful of their claws Aki, they are really sharp and they do karate chops in unbelivable speed! *shrudders* We got to say Poopie is really brave!

Our mum used to have like 5 cats long time ago. She says she's both a cat and dog person *jealous*.

We never experienced having a cat to live with us. Mommy says that Her first dog (Snowy's first sister) did experience that. The cat and Melon were the bestest friends..Mommy just couldn't keep the cat for long because of her allergies - not fair, now we can't ask mommy to bring a little kitty to our house

we think that you will be good friends with this cat, pal :)

Oh no... a CAT!

Gring, Gring looks nice enough. I bet you will like him soon.


Huskee and Hershey said...

AHHHHHH.. Watch those claws!!
The other day Hershey tried to be friendly with a neighbourhood cat and the thing puffed itself up and let out the most scary hiss **shudders**

Hi, Aki!
I like cats but the ones I've seen close don't want to play with me!
Kisses and hugs

Uh-oh, your manang must have real trouble with her eyes to bring in that un-dog-like creature ;)

Poopie seems to be playing nicely with kitty. I just hope they keep playing safely.

Uh oh...I detest detentions as well! Sorry to hear that you got detention, Aki! But Gring Gring and Poopie sure looked like they had fun...=)

Happy Halloween!
