Our pet cat Cheeky.
Cheeky is 24 years old already, in cat years that is. He has been with us for two years and has grown up to be a handsome feline. His fur is generally white except for a small patch on his tail that looked more like a smudge than part of him. Other than that, he is pink all over – his ears, his paw pads and everything else not covered by his white fur. His nose gets even pinkier when he is excited.
Although he is neutered, he can be aggresive at times. The multiple scars on Wuan’s hands and legs are testament to that. He has been very gentle to me, though. Whenever I took noon naps, he would hop onto the bed, purr loudly into my ear to get me to extend my hand for him to rub his face against. If I ignored him, he would put his front paws on my belly and gently knead until I extended my hand for him.
On the other hand, he only responds to our calls as and when he wishes. The times that he responded, he would amble from wherever he was at, usually from the back of the house, and nonchalantly walk pass us. He would then lie down, keeping slightly more than arm’s length distance from us so that we would not be able to touch him. Those times, we wished we had adopted a puppy instead.
