永遠的東













三年前的今天,伴了我11年的東東回到他原來的地方去了。

這是一隻在我的心中,跟寶寶一樣,永遠佔有一席之地的貓。

在過去一千多個日子中,有很多個夜晚,我都想著我要為東東跟我的奇緣寫一段。可是三年過去了,這一段一直寫不出來。不是因为懒惰病发作,而是直到今天,我彷彿覺得他從來沒有離開過我。況且,在他走了之後兩個月,一隻大概才兩個月的小貓,當我蹓狗時拼了命的在身後追,不但不怕狗,連生活脾性飲食習慣與動作都像東東,就更讓我覺得,他從來都在我身邊。

那隻與東東很像的小貓,叫做MoMo。

所以,我只能借咱家白頭三年前在東東閉上眼睛第三天所寫的這一條,來懷念我的東。

這一條,也是白頭諸多作品中,最讓我喜歡的一條。



DONG, Rest in peace

For many years, Dong has been always by our side.

Dong came to our house some 11 years ago, he was around 4 month's old, when we stayed in the 5th floor of an apartment, in the City.

He knocked our door, climbed our grill so that my wife open the door to see why there's noise outside.

Then he came into the house, go straight to where the food is, and he stayed, until he left us on 4th December 2007.

We shifted to a new house, a semi-d house with garden that allows our cats and dogs a playground. Dong is happy when he first reached the new house.

Awaiting him is green field, and nice cooling weather that he enjoyed the most.

He is one of the rare who knows how to turn on air-cond when weather is hot.

The only one who knows what his mother is expecting and always be there when his mother needs him.

We went through hardship during the past years, and Dong is always there to keep us going.

There was one occasion when my wife and me was quarreling, he chose to comfort my wife, and boycott me for months!

When he was young, my wife use to pick me from the office late at night. During the journey from home to the office, Dong was the one accompanied her.

Sometime his mother sing alone in the car, while driving, he don't quite like her singing tune, and what he did is use his palm to cover her mouth, asking her to shut up.




He is one of the rare cat having one eye in blue, the other in yellow. This pix taken when he was sitting on his mother's desk, around 3 years ago.


When we first brought him to the vets, everyone is amazed by the way he interacted with us.

My wife went to Bangkok years ago with his photograph in her wallet. Her tour guide was shocked when he saw Dong's photo.

The tour guide told her that Dong is the breed only for the Royal Thai, they call this breed ThaiMiao. He was wondering where we got Dong, and was even shocked when he heard that Dong came by himself.

We had many offered good price for Dong. No, we are not selling cats, none of our cats and dogs are for sale, unless you can prove that you can take care of them properly, and allow us to inspect randomly.

And we had the highest offer so far when he was around 3 years old: RM200,000!

NO! Dong is one of our family!




This one taken around the same time, he suffered from kidney problem, in which we thought was mouth cancer, and he has difficulty eating dry food. We fed him with soft food since he was 5 year old




This is in the new house where he was posting when his mother took my mobile to shoot his pix. He knows and likes to be photographed.

Dong has never leave us except for 2 occasions:

1. When we had disease spread at home, some died, and we need to send the remainder to a clinic to have them clean up, and for us to clean the house. Thus, ONE day he was not with us.

2. during his last 3 months, he was not eating for days, we decided to send him to the vets to have it checked, and hope he will recover. He stayed in the clinic for 3 nights, dripping, and the blood test confirmed that his kidney was failing....

Dong is always beside his mother when she worked at home, watching TV, and at night, he always wanted to sleep on her arm, just like a baby, but quiet, until his mother waked up the next day.

He is the king in the house, he brought up most of the cats, and the 2 dogs we are having, thought them how to behave.

He wasn't the biggest in size, he was around 8Kg at his peak.

He is the rare one who dare to slap the dogs, if they are too noisy. The dogs did not fight back when he slapped them, since he brought them up.

He love small creatures, kittens, puppies, etc. I have never see him chasing insects, lizards, while other cats love doing this.

He never kill, and he is kind hearted enough to win our love to him.

I really hope we will unite, sometime, somewhere. Dong is someone that I can never forget.

人与动物之间的情感,无法言语沟通,是单纯的建立在彼此的真心上.

苦媽,怎麼說呢,我相信冥冥中有它的機緣存在。只是一種相信,沒有根據的。

阿草,他的白。。。。真的是沒有一根雜毛在的。一般貓兒老了毛髮也會變黃,但是他完全沒有。只是眼中的那抹藍色越變越淡,到最後幾乎與另一眼的黃色同色了。

恒媽媽,我們的身邊每天都有值得感動的故事呀

夫人,他永遠都在我的心中。很難忘記人生最低潮時,有他陪伴的日子。
