365 Writing Prompts: Home sweet home

When you’re away from home, what person,thing, or place do you miss the most?

I was away from home recently, the most I missed was Raphael and Gabriel, our feline pets. Although we left them with my daughter’s friend, we missed them a lot we could not wait to come home and bring them back the same evening.

Raphael was not happy, he showed his anger by staying away, he did the silent treatment. Gabriel was happy to be back in his familiar surrounding.

Today is the third day we’re back both the felines are back in their usual self i.e., chewing paper, sitting on the keyboard of my daughter’s computer,putting their paw on the computer screen.

Just now they’re barred in my room, so Selina can do her work.

Next I missed my bedroom, my clothes, I did not take my warm clothes which was a mistake. I was so cold and wished I had my warm clothes.

I also missed my home, I don’t have so many stairs to get into my house. The apartment had more than thirty spiral stair case, I had to be careful going up and down.

When we arrived home I breathed a sigh of relief, no matter where I go, ‘I miss my home,sweet home.’

365 Writing Prompts: Imitation/Flattery

Write a post in the style of(or simply inspired by) a favorite author.

Once upon a time there lived in the never,never land a sage who had two feline pets, one he named Gabriel and his brother he called, Smiley.

Smiley was a delightful pet ever ready to adopt any human he came across, Gabriel on the other hand was not so trusting, he always kept his distance from strangers. Strangers to him were people who would take him away from his real owner.

Smiley however was ready to go with anyone who’d take him, he felt life is full of surprises, it wouldn’t hurt to find out how life would be with someone other than his present owner.

God the giver of wishes decided He’s helped humans, why not a feline.

The stage was set, along came a court jester to visit the sage, Smiley as usual was as charming as he could be, both he and jester loved each other instantly.

Smiley found his new owner and made a big fuss to go with Jester. His wish was granted by Mr. Sage, Smiley was overjoyed to get a new owner, he hopped all the way to Jester’s house.

Jester lived in a small hut, there was a tiny window in the middle of the room, the door was ugly and nothing to look at Jester was happy in his little abode, Smiley was disgusted, he showed his anger by scratching everything in the house, this displeased Jester, he slapped him and made him go to sleep.

Early morning he stealthily left the house, he had enough of Mr. Jester , one more day might make him attack Jester.

Walking along the winding streets he realized it was wrong to change owners, he was happy with Sage and his brother Gabriel. He was looking for adventure which turned out to be sour in the end.

Along the way he was invited by several humans to live with them he declined by saying he did not want to be adventurous any more.

Finally after a long walk he reached home, Gabriel and Sage were having a man to feline talk, he was a bit jealous but reminded himself, he is the one who chose to leave, he has no reason to be jealous.

Gabriel was happy to see his brother back, when he asked him if he had fun with Jester all he could say in his feline language was: All that glitters is not gold.”

Our cats Gabriel and Rafael are watching US open tennis 2014. It is a grand slam tennis tournament, held in Flushing Meadows in New York.

They became interested when they saw Joe Wilfrid Tsonga bouncing the yellow ball. They were fascinated by the bouncing ball and thought they could get it.

I took a picture of them when they were watching the match.

Raphael is sitting on the right and Gabriel is on the left.

Raphael and Gabriel

About two months ago my daughter and I thought of adopting a kitten. We got in touch with  a breeder of kittens, she had informed us her kittens were ready to be adopted. We were excited,my daughter went to the house of the breeder and picked one she liked, it was a Sunday when our new kitten arrived, it was tiny and scared it hid under the covers was afraid to eat or use the litter, we were concerned there were very few things we could do to make the little kitten comfortable. I thought maybe we should get his brother from the breeder.

My daughter went right away to get one of his brothers. The change I saw in the kitten was remarkable, it was happier and was not afraid anymore. The brother however was a bit scared,it was another challenge we had to overcome but having his brother with us made things easier.

We named them Gabriel and Raphael, Gabriel has a mind of his own, he doesn’t let us touch him when he is not in a mood , but Raphael is very affectionate and friendly with anyone who visits us. We like him to be friendly but are a bit concerned if he is too friendly.

They are four months old and developing their own personality, which is nice to watch. The past week was too warm for the felines, they meowed a lot to tell us they were not comfortable we did our part we turned on the fans and opened the windows.

Today it is a cooler day, the kittens are delighted, they are sleeping.

Since there is no daily prompt for today I used the day to write about our gorgeous kittens!

Writing Prompt : Unconventional love

Over the week end, we explored different ways to love.Today tell us about the most unconventional love in your life.

Two weeks ago we bought a Siamese Himalayan breed kitten. My daughter and I were very happy, the little kitten was very nervous, on the first day,it didn’t eat or drink,next day it hid under the quilt, it didn’t come out. Almost a week went by we couldn’t make it comfortable. 

My daughter and I decided to get its brother from the woman, as soon as it saw its brother, it’s whole temperament changed,it was no longer the shy scared kitten.

I love them,we named the first one Gabriel and his brother Raphael. Gabriel and Raphael are the most important members of our family.

Three weeks ago I didn’t think we’d ever get kittens. Today we have them and are very pleased.
