Yesterday as we were heading out for dinner, we saw a cat lying outside our building door, conveniently positioning herself near the small gap between the floor and the glass door. What a smart kitty. In this hot weather, she found respite from that small gap where cool air from inside of the building ‘leaks’.
A stray cat – not uncommon scene here in Dubai. In fact, we have picked up a few and homed one through social media in 2009.
But by the looks of this one, we knew this was not an ordinary stray cat bred on the streets. The body is round and healthy (fat if you may put it), fur is clean and most of all, it was obviously very used to people touching it.
The cat was new on the street. If our speculation is true, this cat has just been abandoned and thrown by its owner.
Of course Pristine immediately asked if we could keep the cat, forgetting the fact that we are all allergic to fur. And that cats have the smelliest poo in the animal kingdom!
(1) I looked for the cat again this morning but I couldn’t find it.
(2) When I came home at 5pm after work, I found the cat with dirtier fur and with a hint of exhaustion in its eyes!
