UNICEL Animal Day 2010

Last Saturday, UNICEL (a university in Shah Alam) organized a 'Animal Day' to raise awareness and educated students more on animals. Petster magazine was invited and given a booth there to help spread some educational facts. Majority of the animals in the hall were cats and exotic animals - snakes (i like!), scorpions, iguanas, etc. With such a golden opportunity given, we had the chance to bring our 5 monkeys kittens out for adoption and give them a chance to have a new home. F.Y.I the 5 stray kittens were picked up by my dear and his partner Danny when they were stopping by a petrol station last 2 months. One of them were seen wandering around the petrol station and when my dear asked a cleaner about that kitten, she brought them to her storeroom where there were 4 more of them! Although their mother was around, the cleaner advised them to take the kittens for their mother seldom look after them and they're at risk of getting run over by cars going in and out of the petrol station. Thus, they took them back to the office, awaiting for the day where they'll all be adopted by serious cat lovers.

The day finally came. The whole Petster team woke up as early as 7am to gather together in their office, have breakfast, packed all the necessary stuff up the cars, and find our way to Shah Alam. But as usual, we got lost; 'coz both the driver and passenger of the leading car is somehow suck at recognising roads (dunno why we let them lead oso!) XD Conclusion - after so many U-turns and roundabouts, we finally reached - LATE! But hey.. it's better late than never right? kekee! *Cover up* I almost kissed the ground that we eventually found our way.. lol! Upon reaching, i quickly went to the kittens to see if they're doing alright (so worried they might get carsick!).. eventually they do not get carsick but they looked timid, knowing as if they're going to be separated from each other... =(

Once we've done setting up our booth and putting the kittens up on the table, students started surrounding and all the "eeeee... comelnyer!!" and "awww... kuchi kuchi kuchi!" started coming out lar... and much to our surprise, the kittens were ALL adopted in less than 30 minutes! We were like "ok... so what next?" hahahahaha...! We ended up sitting there and loitering around for the next 3-4 hours... I'm really happy for those kittens who've finally got a new warm home yet i still missed them terribly!

At another corner, there were a small circle of cages where all the nice exotic breed cats are. Although they're very nice to look at, but they are still cats after all. Exotic breed or local breed - they are still cats and they still need love from us. I took a few pictures of them though... i still prefer my 5 monkeys!!

Leg licking good.... lol!
