Pets Switching Places

Kiki, my domestic long hair calico cat told me a few days ago that she and her new roommate, Kiko, needed a bigger cage. Kiko, the female short hair kitten moved in when I decided she was big enough to join Kiki in a cage. The cage they were in, although have 3 tiers, was rather cramped.

Meanwhile, a step to the right, the Ferret Duo were making a great fuss about not having enough fresh air to breathe. Last year when I decided to get ferrets, I bought a large wrought-iron cage for cats and then wrapped the entire cage with plastic nettings and fasteners; young ferrets can escape through the bars quite easily. Now both of my ferrets have grown and they didn't need the extra precaution anymore.

I went out with a couple of friends (One decided to get a guinea pig, though I was strongly against this) and we went around town; pet store cruising. I bought a lower white cage for my ferrets, and decided to move the cats into the greater cage, after removing all the plastic nettings.

My cats are happier with their huge abode. My ferrets don't even care about the size of their new house, as long as I put enough food and treats inside.

"Huzzah for Boss!"

On a different note; I was introduced to the Malacca SPCA centre yesterday by my friend's student, who is living close to the place. The barking of so many dogs welcomed us, and yes, they were MANY canines, of every size. But of course, I went to the cats section for a quick look and it was quite a sad sight. The place was clean, but the building was in great need of repair. The staff told me that maybe they have to move to another place soon, because the rent had escalated recently.

The cats are all of domestic breed, and none was a looker. But I was interested in a huge black cat with yellow eyes. My friends told me, as I was stroking it that she looks like Salem, the witch cat. I am always interested with black cats (none was sold at the pet shops, unfortunately). If my funding is more than adequate soon, I might return and adopt that cat.

You obviously take good care of your pets. I like the tiers on the cat cage. I think I am having trouble with my blogger. Will you leave me a comment on the post today? Thanks.

Last time I visited a rescue centre I wanted to take home 3 dogs. I try to stay away now.

I still can't digest the idea of 'cat cages'. Anyways I second you about the black cats. I won't mind any oppression from my parents against cats, the moment i find a black kitten!

Rock Chef; The dogs I've seen, some of them are rather beautiful. But I am a cat person :)

et; Cages for cats? Is quite common here, especially if the cats mentioned are quite expensive. The next door neighbor lost their cat last year - it was stolen.

Our cats run loose in the house. I don't know of anyone who keeps them caged up around here. Still, were I to put them in a cage, that large one would probably do quite nicely...

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Radio N; I can let my cats roam free. But they are not neutered, thus I do not wish to be happy with new unexpected kittens :)

Cats should roam freely, not be locked in a cage, no matter how spacious they are.

My 2 sen.

On another note, have you ever thought of volunteering at the SPCA or help them do some fund raising? You do love animals so much...

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Aizan; I let my cats go out of the cage once in a while.

SPCA is too far away from my home lah dear. But I do have some ideas to contribute soon.
