This is a little real and sweet story, that brought a big smile to my face, thought I’d share it with you as well.

Every evening my uncle and aunt from our neighborhood come to my house and gossip with us. If there is any interesting news like sports, national news, politics etc, they talk about it. I do have lot of fun with them as my aunt will always keep cracking jokes. On the day of Rakshabandhan, we were all sitting and talking about Rakshabandhan, then suddenly some children came running to us and they told that a cat is crying under the tree. I saw the cat scared and hungry as it was sitting under a tree on the side of the road. I picked her up and brought her to my home, everyone in my family said that it is very small and weak but they were very happy seeing it.

Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival where brothers promise to always look out for their sisters, a tradition that Lord Krishna started when he accidentally cut his finger and Draupadi (Sister by choice) tears off a piece of her Saari to make a bandage. Then Lord Krishna promised to always look out for her and the tradition started where the sisters tie Rakhi on their brothers’ hands.

I wanted to keep the kitten with me but my mother doesn’t like cats at all. As this moment was a little different, I saw my mother petting the cat and I could see a smile on her face as if she liked this cat. My Dad uttered the golden words, something that was in my heart. He said we will keep the cat with us and I was happy and jumped with excitement. This was my first chosen pet animal who will be living with us at home.

My mother gave milk to the cat and it drank the milk quickly as if it hasn’t had anything to eat in a while. As soon as the cat finished the milk, Mukku (Dog) saw her and started running after her. The cat climbed the tree in fear and we knew that it will not be a smooth adjustment for both the cat and the dog. We sent Mukku (Dog) away and are now training the dog to accommodate the cat. We brought the cat down from the tree, and with Mukku getting trained, now she lives with us. We named her ‘Naina’ because her eyes are very beautiful. I love getting these pets at my home.
