||Eight months old|
||Mérida, Yucatán, México|
night before going to sleep, I heard the crying of a little cat. It was
Monchita, she had fallen from the roof into my backyard when she was
following her mother. She creid for three entire days, she barely was one or two
months old. Inmediately my girlfriend and I decided to adopt her, she was
beautiful. Although we could have returned her to the mother, we decide not
to do it. The mother was small and thin, a poorly fed stray cat, and still
had two or three kittens in the litter. We decided to give her a better and happier
future! She lives so peacefully and happy with our other cat Minini Gatotsu III.
Monchita's personality has changed a lot since she was just a kitten. When
she was little, Monchita kept running from one corner of the house to the
other, then suddenly she was climbing my trousers to fall asleep on my legs
while I was playing League of Legends in the laptop. She was a very loving Kitty.
Several months later we had to move to other house, it was bigger than the
previous, with a larger backyard. With this change Monchita became distant
and a little surly. I think it was because she spent less time with us and
more time running free and hunting little things. Even so at the end of the
day I let the cats in my room and spent time together with them. Monchita is
very vocal, every time I touch her by surprise she lets out a mew, and says
more if she is hungry. She also purrs a lot, and loudly!
She loves to chase my shoelace, and is always very energetic. Now that she is
bigger, she is becoming more of a climber. Every surface in the house must be
scratched by her hahaha! I hope my Monchita lives with us for many years, and
we all have many funny moments together!
