This is CatCat, or sometimes, Miaow.
It’s a very manja, human-loving cat. And very fluffy.
It’s a stray that wanders around my Ipoh house, but as I said it’s very friendly with humans.
In fact, it actively seeks out human companionship. My dad will put out dry cat food for it when it comes and meows in its high-pitched, very cham and te voice, but it won’t eat till it is pet a bit.
Yes, my dad and mum actually like this cat. It’s quite amazing because they haven’t liked cats before, especially strays.
But this cat is so persistent and unafraid of people, and pretty looking, that it’s wormed its way into their hearts. It started off the friendship by leaving a present of a dead shrew on the doorstep.
Yesterday, when CatCat didn’t show up, my dad actually wondered where it could be and if it was all right. But it was just off on its adventures in the neighborhood, where other families must feed it or it gets food some other way.
It all started when I met this stray cat walking past the house gate as I came home at night, during the Election 2008 time. It was wary of me, but when I crouched down and opened my hand out to it, it came to be petted.
The next night, it apparently sat on the car I had driven waiting for me. Well, at first my dad shooed it away. But it kept on coming back.
It would sit in the driveway and wait for my parents to come home to greet them. Soon enough, CatCat or sometimes Miaow (as it got named) would get an occasional pet, then later chicken scraps, and now regular catfood.
CatCat isn’t allowed in the house at all… Or wasn’t. It used to be, it was sternly kept out of the house, with a little boot to the rear and the wooden door closed behind it.
Now it gets in as far as the hall, sits down, and when no one is looking quickly sneaks off to the dining room and kitchen to explore and hide.
Once, it ran upstairs, to the room, and onto the balcony when it was told to get out. So my dad locked it out on the 2nd storey balcony for the night. The next morning, he opened the door to the room and CatCat came out and went downstairs. Lesson learnt (for now).
Here are more pics of the pretty, very fluffy, very affectionate cat.

Slanty eyes with camera flash makes a Transformers Robot Cat.
Catcat may have Ragdoll genes… Doesn’t struggle at all even though you cuddle it for a long time.
Stayed still long enough for several shots.
