Remembering The Way We Were - Cosmo and Ling

The weather was extremely hot on that fateful day of August 2, 2008. Mommy and Whisky were taking their evening stroll and decided on that day to walk another round around the field behind the house...and that was when she heard a distinct mew. They stopped and listened. And heard it again. Tiny baby mews.They peered into the drain and found Cosmo mewing pathetically and Ling was just sitting there, silent.

Mommy noted that there was this huge plastic bag with a ripped out hole at its side next to us. She thinks someone must have dumped us in the drain and we managed to get out of the bag but not out of the drain. We were just around 5 weeks old then. Weak and dehydrated, Mommy picked the both of us up and took us home, then to the vet. We were covered in fleas, full of worms and Ling had an eye infection.

Cosmo at the front, Ling at the back
Here we are, a day after being scooped out from the drain
Well, we were supposed to have been put up for adoption because Daddy didn't want cats. But as soon as he laid eyes on us...well, Ling actually, his heart was stolen and that's how we ended up staying!

We refused to go near Mommy and Daddy for the first few weeks. We were terrified of them! But with lots of patience, love and time, we eventually got over our fear of them. However, we are still terrified of strangers.

Tiny Cosmo who grew and grew!
The little girl who stole her Daddy's heart
After Cosmo returned from being hospitalized for blockage, Ling hissed and hissed at him.  Finally, several days later,  love prevailed. I love this picture even if it's blurry
Cosmo has grown into a handsome mancat
No longer able to fit her entire body on my computer keyboard, Ling has to settle for just having her paw on it

How someone could have done something like that to the both of you is unfathomable.

on the good side, if it hadn't happened, you would have never had such a wonderful and caring home.
