The Cookie Monster

Apparently I am not the first cat to enter Mummy and Daddy’s life *sulks*.
Before I was brought home, they had actually adopted one cat before from the SPCA. They called him “Cookie”.
His photo is still pasted on the wall and he looks a little bit like me with a white chest and thick black classic tabby swirls on brown fur. The only difference is that he has a pinky nose like Xin Xin. I have to admit he looks damn cute.
Mummy & Daddy still have not forgotten him as he is technically their “first” cat/child. However, he proved a little too much to handle especially when they were still greenhorns then. Cookie was returned to SPCA a week later. Mummy lost 2 kg in that week from stress handling him.
They decided to give having a cat as a pet 2 months later and I was adopted because I reminded them so much of Cookie. But I was a much better behaved kitty and that’s how Mummy & Daddy got back the confidence to handle more kitties who are even naughtier. And so they ended up with 5 of us. Haha…
They sneaked a visit back to the SPCA a few months after I was adopted (I know because I could smell him on them *sulks again*) to see if Cookie was still around. He had already grown into a strapping majestic tom cat (but already eunuch hehehe). Mummy said he looked like the top cat in the cattery. But they could not bring him back again as they know we will never be able to get along well. They know I won’t give up my queen seat to him easily. They are so right. Mummy & Daddy are mine. All mine.
But I hope he has already been adopted into a nice family who will give him all the love and care he needs. Mummy & Daddy would very happy if that happens. I think they still blame themselves for returning him.
Best wishes Cookie gor gor. The kxbc gang wishes you a happy life even though you are not part of our family.
