Someone’s keeping me more busy… because we’ve got the newest member of the family!
It is endearing that in my usual kwentuhan (call) with my elders back home yesterday we dedicated an hour for the cat’s talk alone. We’ve always kept a pet in the Philippines (dogs and cat) and that’s one of the restrictions we rejected when we moved to Abu Dhabi. As we’re living in a flat (apartment), our previous landlord didn’t allow pets. Fortunately, the new landlord and maintenance personnel okayed an indoor cat. Since then we started researching about the breed that will suit best our lifestyle and other arrangements here. We aimed for a cat from the start because it is less talkative and more acceptable in the UAE. Apparently, Muslims do not encourage keeping a pet dog.
