About Time, Angelina!

Yessss!!!! She's back! Now we can laugh again in this house.
First, we received a call at about 11.30pm from Block A, about three blocks away from us. A young lady said she found Angelina. Mama asked a few questions like colour, markings etc and then went to check. Unfortunately, the tabby wasn't Angelina.
Then at around 1am, a text message came in. Someone texted to say they found her at Block A. Again? We said. Mama was reluctant to go as she had just come back from Block A. But the couple then sent an MMS. And confirmed certain markings. They waited downstairs while Mama put on some decent clothes.
Finally! The right tabby was found. I'm happy to report that at least she's not infested with fleas, just some dirty feet, and she seems very hungry. She still smells of the shampoo she had from the spa treatment last week. One of these day I'm going to interview her about her "adventure". Hey...I was born in this house, lived here all my life and I've never ventured further than the main door and the only travels I had are the annual visits to the vet. At least Angelina has travelled 7,000km from Sydney to here, and then spent one week outside the house. And instead of getting a scolding, she was smothered with kisses and given treats. 

Someone's soooo hungry! Kibbles and water first.
Special treat of fresh beef. yummmm.....
Thank you all for your purrrayers and words of encouragement. It has been a distressing period for us with Mama not sleeping a wink and then getting sick, the midnight prowling in the area by Mama and Dad.... Thank you to all our neighbours who called and looked out for her, and finally.....found her. The young couple who found her - Aunty Faza and Uncle Yazid, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. They won't even take the reward money that Mama's been offering. Thank you all. A thanksgiving party is in order, I think. We'll send the invites.
Oh yeah...looks like my stint as the blog caretaker is over too soon.
Till the next time,
xoxo
Nikki

Aunty Carolyn,
Purrrlease tell Austin his beloved is hale and hearty. Thank God she's been spayed, Mama said, or else who knew who had molested her or what. Hmm....will I get to be caretaker again? meowww....Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Hey Uncle Cloon,
I think it's the other way round. But it's OK, we'll keep your offer in mind. meoww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Your Royal Monyetness,
Yeah! I looooove parties. Mama would have to organise something soon. meoww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Ezza,
I'll interrogate her once she's more settled. meoww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tamago-san,
I think she'll get a dressing down too, soon. At the moment we'll let get comfy first. meoww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

m.q. dear,
Too much adventure is also not good. meoww....Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Island Cats,
If she wants adventure, she should go to your island instead. meoww....Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Rosmawati,
Cepatlah kawinkan dengan Abang Madan... meoww...Nikki

Pat said...

I am so happy to hear that Angelina's back!!!

My blog was not updating me on your follow-up posts for some reason, so I didn't see the pix of Ange and the sad pix of Nikki - until just now!

Thank goodness it decided to start 'working' again today, or I'd be still wondering what was happening with Angelina!!

Glad to have you back with us, Angelina. I missed you much!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Lili,
It is a big relief. meowww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Ayoh Wang,

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Anon 10.46,
Yes. We're glad there are good people around who were actually looking out for a lost tabby. We made many new friends in the process. There are so many people owned by felines in this complex. meoww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Fin dear,
Yes. It is terrific news indeed. meoww....Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Pi,
We are going to glue her to the wall. Gerammmm..... meowww....Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Nana,
You've been a great support to us. Jangang lupe beli kerpok ke Nikki, deh? meowww....Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Pat,
Blogger's been weird.... Anyway, it's a big relief that she's back. You see, when Mama was sad it affected everyone. She was practically pining for Angelina...sigh... meowww....Nikki

Au and Target said...

Hooray for Aunty Faza and Uncle Yazid! Stay at home now, Angelina, OK?

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Meoww,
Kami semua pun sangat gumbira kat rumah ni. Kalau tak tu, semua orang moyok je sebab Mama asyik "hujan" je.... meowww....Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Anon - Ulat,
Mama's already looking at microchipping us all although we are all totally indoors. All because of Angelina.... meoww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
Finally, indeed. As Ayoh Wang suggested, perhaps some punishment are in order? meowww....Nikki

i amsterdam said...

Though we love Nikki taking over the blog, but we were sad thinking of you !! <>

Kama At-Tarawis said...

Angelina, Auntie Puteri is passing on a message from Their Royal Laziness Duo: "The next time you get the 'urge', just meow us, Lillie or Awang in TTDI, ok? Psstt,we know of a good spot to lepak by the pool... :D"

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Mother of Ilahm,
Finally, she's home. She's been sleeping ever since she got home. Wonder where she was sleeping the past week. Must have been not as comfy as Mama's bed. meowww...Nikki

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Puteri,
Mama says she's considering training us with harness so that we can roam the area within reasonable distance. Yeah, please tell Lillie and Awang I'd like to lepak with them, not just Angelina. meowww....Nikki

somuffins said...

Alhamdulillah, Angelina dah balik. Maybe you could share your experience with us.

My cat yg bernama Gate was missing for 3 months. I found him roaming somewhere near yet so far. He recognised my voice but my voice wasnt too lemak for her to come near me. My doter did the job.

Anyway, we miss the late Gate very much.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Paula,
You wanna cuddle me? Auw! That tickles. I wanna cuddle you too and Nikki wants to cuddle Nick. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty CS,
