Animal Lover

About a year ago, a few friends and i went to PAWS, an animal shelter, compulsory project for Moral Studies. The other two girls and i didn't like cats, we're dog people... haha.

One of the puppies at the shelter.

Now... the other 2 still don't like cats, maybe even hate them. But i am an animal lover. If my boyfriend had a pet spider i'd love it, love looking at the spider la, don't think i'd touch it. No wait, spiders i don't mind...

If my boyfriend had a pet lizard, i'd love it too. To tell u the truth i like lizards la. A few years ago, my friend told me she was shocked to see this other girl carrying and playing with a lizard affectionately when one went into their classroom. After that, i somehow developed a soft spot for them. Now i find those house lizards cute u know?

I even had a horrible dream abt a lizard. The one in my dream... it didn't hatch from an egg. Instead... err... it just came out of my left inner ankle! Like one of those movies with special effects. And it hurt like hell in the dream. But when i saw how cute it was as a baby, i couldn't kill it and decided to keep it as a pet. It was dark brown and grew big and fat really fast... don't remember the rest of the dream.

I still like lizards despite the scary beginning of that dream. I don't catch or touch any of the lizards in my house, and i still hate the black and white souvenirs they leave behind, but i enjoy looking at them.

Ok, 3 paragraphs about lizards is enough, i've proved my point. Next animal, cats. My boyfriend's family has 5 cats. And throughout our almost-a-year-long relationship, i've grown to love cats. Still can't carry them, don't know how to but i love them. I kissed El2(pronounced el-two) today. Among the 5 cats E has, this really naughty and quite-ordinary looking but pretty El2 socialises with me most. Really smart cat she is, when u call her name she'd respond with a 'meow'. And err... when we kiss in front of her she gets jealous and meows too. =)

Then there's the other cat Anja, short for Manja which means pampered. I know, typical Malay name for a cat, huh? That's what i thought when first told of her name. But trust me, this one lives up to her namesake... Oh! And i lurrrrrve looking at the stray kittens near his house. They are soooooooo cute! Just feel like squeezing them, they're so tiny and they look so innocent when they look at u.

I now love kittens and cats so much that, the other day, when my father and sister were painting i decided to join them. My lil sister gave me a Peter and Jane book to look for pictures i could copy. I found one of a cat and her kittens. I painted only a kitten and my parents said it looks real! What do u think??











To dog lovers out there, like J, i still love dogs! I dun spend much time with my German shepherd but he'll always be my little puppy. And the other day, when i visited my friend D and her sister, A, i had a nice time with their terrier, Gin. Gin's such an active girl, few years old but is still active as a puppy, running here and there and chasing her tail, so cute...

I guess cats dun make a good 1st impression.

lols, ur painting is so much better than mine! i can't draw, i suck at it! lols, wish i could, it's so much fun!

lols, i love cats and dogs! but since i have cats, it's probably not wise to own a dog too, huh? *grins*

sue lin said...

Haha Cheryl, maybe u need more practise and patient in drawing? I know a girl who couldn't draw at all in standard4 but when i met up with her in secondary school, she could draw really well.

I read that if u had puppies and kittens together, they'll just treat each other as friends!

And u know... the kittens i always look at... i just found out that they're not kittens anymore... so sad.

I dont have any affection for lizards anymore, totally forgot i ever did.

Better with E's cats now after all these years
