The Kitty Celebration

This post takes over the duty of celebrating the return of Simona the Kitty with her photos through the ages, one for each month, as she finishes half an year and gets into the seventh month at our home, a record for any cat with us. From the day she was found in the canal to the day she returned after being abducted, and to this day as she stays with us! Here are seven photos taken on my Sony Cybershot and Asus Zenfone 5 of Simona. Hope these photos will make you like her even more as she asks for love 😀

While I am having my exams, Simona the Kitty sends her greetings to all readers, and she hopes that you are all doing well as she is. She is smarter and faster than she has ever been, that is for sure. She is back at home to celebrate life as she used to, and also let’s hope that Simona Halep wins the French Open this time 😀 Happy Roland Garros, and may the lady with the same name as the kitty win this grand slam tournament on clay – may be this one’s return signifies the same.

Hero of the Missed Call

He had absolutely no idea why he had to do that. They said that he was selected by fate to be the hero and had to do this so that the government will learn a lesson about what happens when the demands of the leading extremist faction is rejected. They wanted a new nation out of the middle part of the existing country and they said that it was the right demand and it was also the perfect result for the people. Yes, questioning wasn’t natural for them.

“Do I really have to do that?” he asked as he chatted through Skype on his mobile.

“Yes, you have to, and you are the one selected to do that. There will be no change of plans. We always stick to what we decide together. You need to make a discovery of your faith in us and go on. You are going to be a great hero” answered the man wearing the black mask.

“But it is too extreme even for the extremist standards. So many people will die and it will be recorded in history an act of extreme cruelty” he hesitated and added.

“They have only themselves to blame. You know what all plans they have been making. We are going to be declared a terrorist faction soon. Do you know what they call me? The Black Mask. Seriously? Who do they think they are? We are just a peaceful extremist group who wants to stop people from enjoying their unnecessary freedom. We just hope to stop them from eating, drinking and wearing what they want. We even work as moral police part-time” said the Black Mask.

“Yes, it is a terrible name. It is like that of a comic book character. You should be called something more stylish and revolutionary so that when they make statues of you with a covered face, everyone will recognize you” he said.

“You are beginning to become some pain. Forget that. We are going to act against the government’s foolishness, and let them know that we have weapons and are ready to break away from them in any way possible. We will create this new republic out of the blood and scattered body parts of their people” the Black Mask didn’t forget to add extra power here by punching the table.

“But we are one nation as of now. Their people is our people. We are one nation as we know it and this would only mean that we killed our countrymen” he said while hoping for something better.

“Yes, but we get the votes only by spreading hatred. An act of violence is a boost to that hatred and will accelerate our demands. This nation has no more scope for our extremism. So we will start a new nation and it will be based on our ideas only with us as the single ruling party” the Black Mask continued.

“We can still win the elections. Can I make the explosion somewhere else, may be at a place where nobody is around so that it can go off as a warning?” he pleaded.

“You know what you need to do. As I said, you need to discover your faith in us. This discovery will only be made if you adhere to our principles. You need to obey. You need to make one missed call to the mall where we have kept the explosives from the distance which I have mentioned. It will trigger the explosives there. You will be our hero and this is you last chance” yelled the Black Mask.

“Well, do you know that a quarter of the explosives are left behind at your home on the left of where I am standing now?” he asked.

“Wait! What? Why are you here? You are not supposed to be here. You should be blasting that mall and bringing us glory” the scared Black Mask moved away from the window.

“I am here to say farewell, and wishing you best of luck in hell. Good luck with your discovery between the flames and by the side of the Devil” he shouted.

He walked back after pressing the button, happier than ever. He was never this happy to have broken the trust of someone, and this was completely worth it. The explosion behind him never really caught his attention because he wondered what was to happen next. He wondered how good spirituality will turn out to be in this age. He had actually begun his discovery.

“I guess I am still a hero; the hero of the missed call.” he murmured.

Adventures of Simona

The presence of Simona the Lionhearted a.k.a SI-MO the Kitty, the most valiant cat of its times at our home has passed a month in total with a few days extra, as of now. November 28 was her day of baptism, with the date of birth unknown, and after being named Simona, she has made a lot of progress these days. She has turned more playful, and is also so much quicker than she used to be – you can miss her easily if you just turn your eyes away for even a second. And yes, she is having a lot more food, and knows what to do when she needs food.

Simona is not just a kitten now as she has become part of the family. She is no longer afraid. She seems to understand and realize things better now, like sitting on a sofa only when someone is present, and also to stay with the company of her newfound family instead of being alone. She is never happy when she is left alone, and nowadays, she is very much aware of the house, as she often comes all the way up to my room and starts knocking on the door whenever she wants to play.

A kiss to whatever it is, just because she can. Kitten power.

Sometimes, Simona is the Phantom, the ghost who walks, and it is impossible to detect her, but the cover is blown when she finds a familiar leg which she wants to hug. On another day, she might be The Flash, going faster than any creature that has ever set foot in our house. On another occasion, she might be Mandrake, the magician who plays with her magic wand which should the splinters made of any type of wood. There are times when she becomes the enchanting Carmilla, ready to bite the lesser mortal creatures with her mighty little fangs.

Simona can smell what the Rock is cooking. A question answered there.

Simona was never the first cat that we have given some space in our home. You might have already read about Zeezee (https://theteacerebration.wordpress.com/2014/11/06/zeezee-the-oracle/) – the one who is no longer with us. There have been predecessors. There was the pure white kitten which spent time while jumping around our shuttle cat and the pure black kitten which had some happy times around our world, both being hit by cars. There was also another kitten going back to my childhood, which is believed to have been kidnapped.

Simona's mother had told her that she could climb a tree - first attempt.

But Simona had stayed and mingled with us like no other kitten has done before. She has adjusted with her home and seems to have fallen in love with it. We do keep an eye on her though, as there is a big cat wandering around on the top of the walls and there are lots of stray dogs roaming around just outside the gate. We shall keep an eye on her all the time and try our best to make sure that her time in home remains awesome.

The blue flowers. Simona has seen it and she will find it :D

My friend, James dedicated this song to Simona and yes she is getting older now – see how much bigger she is now from the earlier post I had put on my log (https://theteacerebration.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/how-i-met-my-kitten/) 😀 When this kitten gets older and becomes the La Belle Dame Simona, there comes the bigger responsibilities; may be she can listen to this one later 😀 If you wish to dedicate something more for her, you are welcome 🙂

As I still keep worrying that she might one day go out and be in trouble, you are also welcome to give me some suggestions about having a cat at home. I haven’t had the opportunity to have one at home for this long a period along with becoming this close, until now. Any advice is welcome, but only in the case of cats 😀 May be this will also inspire me to have another pet at home, and the next one might not be a cat – who knows? 😉
