Back in the year 2013, i was helping mom to dry clothes.
It was mid December, so I took a novel and told mom that I am reading under the sun shades so I will come a little late.
I went to roof and took out a wooden bench from store room.
The store room was full of dust and spiders as no one went there.
So I did not care to look at other items, I took my chair and cleaned it.
I read almost three stories then birds were disturbing me, they were munching on the grains mamma left under sun as granny told to show them sun else pests would attract them.
I flewed them again and again and they would come back.
Then being tired I let them eat and closed the door to downwards so that when mom would come upstairs I would safe myself by flying them.
Else she would scold me that can’t you see the sparrows destroying the wheat grains :p. Aree they your friends (in-laws) so that you are kind to them …etc.?
I was about to start the forth story now, I heard a noise coming from store room, I ignored it first, the noise began louder now.
I was scared,
Is it any ghost there as I was reading a horror story :p .?
The character in the novel was a brave boy, he climbs the window to face the ghost so being inspired by him,
I too collect the courage, to get near the store room.
The store room was a steel block, with A wooden curtain acting as gate.
I walked slowly slowly with bare feet. There was terror in my eyes :p.
I lifted the curtain from a side, my heart was pondering high.
I looked with one eye opened. And eyebrows raised.
And smile gripped my face.
What I seen was a surprise!
( I was not camera friendly that time so sadly I don’t have the clicks of those cutie kitten )
There were container of tin containing sand for my garden and on them three little kitten were playing.
They were so tiny, as if they are two or three days old.
They would come in my palm.
I then started observing them from side of the curtain,
All three were different.
One had grey eyes, one was with brown and the third one had red eyes.
I was loving the moment.
Their playing on mud was full of joy.
They jumped and giggled each other.
And when they looked at me, they were afraid and entered deep inside the mud.
Their cuteness was just marvellous.
I immediately ran downstairs and called mummy and brother to come and watch them.
I picked few milk and oreos and went up.
I kept it there, and then waited for them to come out.
They did not come as they were afraid of us.
After few hours they came and drank the milk, when their mom came.
They did not eat biscuits to which mamma said they are little now they only take liquids as little babies only take mom’s milk for some months.
Then from that day I played with them for a month, slowly slowly they became my friends, they played with a little ball my brother gave them.
The big cat was secured because we took care the little kittens very well.
They would come and sit when I took meals under the table, so I would give them few sweet dish.
I was in love with the three now.
They were growing up and also started taking oreos now.
But one evening, while I was inside they were playing in the Veramdah.
The big cat came and took them away keeping in mouth one by one.
Mom said she is the mommy cat and now that her kids are grown up, she is taking them to outside world as they can’t stay here all time.
I was very sad, I thought they are going temporarily and will come back but to my surprise they never came again.
I still wait for them.
And I learned a lesson to never be attached to anyone to a great extent that when he or she leave it becomes difficult for us to survive.
I again sat on cliff and took my story books to read, again the sparrows came there and munched on grains…
I took out my phone and play a pre-recorded voice of sparrows I captured during one of the mornings.
The sparrows goes into confusion that from where was the noise of sparrows i
coming ? And they looked at me 😂😂😂 with anger and flew away.
I laughed and went back to reading …
I so wished those kitten to be here.
But I have learned to live with their memories.
And now when I see big cats I see the glimpse of little kittens in them.
I learned that my karma with those cats was over so may be I will meet them again in next life.
