Tears in Heaven - In memory of Hazel

I wish I didn't have to find out the truth but I guess Hazel wants me to, so that G and I can stop searching, so that we can move on. Hazel decided that last night will be the night for us to know. To know that she has gone to heaven.

I was on my way home after the night search when I saw Uncle Y and Indra in a discussion. Next to them was a young cat who appeared to be injured. The cat couldn't even stand. We think she may have been hit by a vehicle. Other than not being able to stand, she looked quite fine. Funny thing was, the cat was staring in a particular direction throughout and I decided to find out what she was staring at. She was looking at the cleaner. I gasped. I ran to him and showed him Hazel's lovely pics and asked if he knew what happened. After thinking for a while, he mentioned a cat died at the TV repair shop (near Hazel's hangout) 3 days ago. The cat looked like Hazel. My heart sank with a speed you cannot imagine. He took a second look and said "Look like this one. They (the TV repair shop) asked me to take the body but I never. Under TV." The timing fits. My heart crashed to the bottom with a loud thud, I felt it almost stop beating.

At that point, I could no longer control my emotions. I burst out crying. I apologised to Indra in between sobs and tears and excused myself. I stood at a corner to cry my heart out. I later called G to break her the news. I knew that G would be a hundred times sadder than me. She was Hazel's main caregiver. At 1.35am, G text me "am crying my heart out for Hazel...she was such an affectionate girl..." I started crying again.

I felt somehow that all these has been arranged by Hazel.

I always say that Hazel is too beautiful and sweet to be living a life as a stray. Maybe heaven agreed and decided to adopt her.

As for the injured cat, Indra will bring her home.

Hazel lives in our hearts forever.

Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand if I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand if I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day,
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,
time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
have you begging please,
begging please.

Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure,
And I know there'll be no more
tears in heaven.

Rest in peace Hazel. You'll be missed dearly.

Hey Pixie!

I am very thankful to Esther & Colin. I want to thank them for opening their hearts and giving such a good and loving home to Pixie, one of my favourite ex-community cat. Pixie now has a safe place to hang out, gets good healthy food and has three younger friends to play with. In return, she makes herself useful by being a live alarm each morning for mummy and daddy. It really warms my heart to receive news about her.

I wish I could find good homes for Yoyo and Hazel too. If you know of good & responsible owners like Pixie's parents looking for a feline family member, please do ask them to consider Yoyo & Hazel.

Pixie at my home temporarily after sterilisation.

Top of the world...

Macy, Tracie & Boy

I think I am going to faint.

Just when I thought we had one less stray doggy to worry over, here comes Tracie who quite resembles Macy.

This is Tracie.

Tracie is a girl.

This is Macy. I have not seen her for quite some time.

And this is Boy who is now in a foster home.

All three of them appeared within a span of one month which to me, is highly unusual. I have been staying at my estate for 20 years but have never seen something like that. Me and a few caregivers suspect that they may have come from the reservoir which is nearby. We keep our fingers crossed that there won't be a fourth!
