When I got to Takashimaya, it was impossible to miss the roadshow. The Civic Plaza was set ablazed with buzzing noises, the brightest colours and the coolest pets. Here's a really cute Maltese who was just soaking in all the attention from the crowd.
And here's an energetic Alsatian pup who was just begging to be let out of his cage. I swear his tail was about to get wagged off!
Ooh! And there were the most lovable rabbits too. Just take a look at this romantic pair. Don't they look like they just hopped out of an Enid Blyton book?
And on our left, we have a smoky gray Persian-cross. Erm... actually... in this photo it looks more sinister than majestic. If I were the casting director of a Harry Potter movie and I had to give Voldemort a cat, this would be it.
And here's my darling Bombay and Callas!
Callas, on the other hand, was in a grumpy mood. He kept hissing at the cats in the cages beside his, sometimes hissing at the people admiring him. At one point, he got so touchy, he and Bombay got into a scuffle and had to be put into separate cages for the rest of the day. Poor dear... most people don't realise how stressful these adoption drives are for cats and kittens. Amazingly, Callas received the most interest from serious adopters. I suppose they must be the ones who DO understand that the cats are probably not themselves in an environment like that and cannot be expected to be at their best.
This is how the cats' cages were arranged for public viewing. To the left of the photo is a foster making sure her cat is all comfy.
If I were one of the cats on display, this must be what my neighbours would look like from my view. (That's Bombay playing with a pellet.)
And now, we leave our little purring darlings to get a little rest. Till tomorrow...
Do come visit if you haven't already!
