The mum and the grandma. I can understand Sabina is only 15 years old. She needs some guide. She mentioned they use to have a dog before they migrated to Australia
Sabina Snatch and her Mum
but then was returned to the owner as they could not bring the dog with them.
I told her that’s what she looks like.
She is a tortoise looking cat and her strong identity is her huge big eye that’s why she named flashlight.

Sabina and she seems she likes it. So she suggest let’s bring Snatch to the other house and let’s see how her grandma react and true enough she likes Snatch and I ask Sabina that little Snatch have a history before
I rescued him. So they have all group discussion which is pretty normal when your adoption another member that’s add on to the family. I am confident that Snatch will be going to a good home.
Family deciding – Mum , Grandma and the Aunt
I make sure that Snatch settled in with her needs and the rest they can figured out later on.
My aim is just to provide them easy start.
Snatch has been dewormed and I told them she has to go back next week for his 1st vaccine.
For Snatch to take home
That late night Sabina texted me saying that that her grandma found Snatch so playful and adorable.
Wat Unalom .PPAWS have posted in their face book about the horrible scene and horrific act of this lady who use small kittens to beg money from the tourist . I know it sounds terrible but it is the reality in the country like Cambodia that animals are not protected by law.
I realized I don’t have any sharp object to cut the plastic string. So I walk few meters away to buy a scissor from the nearby shop. I choose the big one so it’s easy to use and it’s faster.
I cannot take chances and risk my safety.
Madam run now bring the cats with you!!!!!! All of them are waiving their hands get out there now!!!
These when they are in the tuktuk with me
after string has been cuf off from their neck
They fur in my jeans and even laying down next to me.
I then start cutting off the plastic string from their body.
This is not the way how the animals to be treated!
I did not bath them right away as the other one is having a flu or cold she sneeze with the flu.
Very sad! They eat very little at the very beginning.
Enjoying the food the comfy place !
For those of you who are interested to adopt Snatch he is just a job very playful and free happy spirit .
The person who have pure heart will never regret to adopt him.
He is now house trained and litter trained.
He talks to a lot and responded very well with humans and cats alike.
For some of you who see this lady in the pagoda begging for money using these little kittens.
Please refrain giving her money. She has to learn to find ways how to find her daily bread.
Also please inform your friends and friends of visiting friends in cambodia about this lady .
I hope one day an organisation will help her find something to start a new life and not using these poor cats as her prisoner.
But as always thesame time I wake up in the morning is still the same where ever you go I think.
It was nice to get a break once in awhile and just take life easy.
Stroll the town and act like a tourist even I have been in Saigon many times.
It’s been a lot of a change I see around, the place and the coffee shop I used to hang out and the place I buy a coco juice when you need to snap out of a thirst when running around in the humid place.
The first thing I do when I get a chance to visit Saigon is to visit the Notre Dam and light the candles
For me this is like a routine whenever I got a chance to visit the cathedral.
It is a nice feeling after stepping into the church and says my little prayer. I guess I miss having that since we don’t have proper church in Phnom Penh.
Strolling around the area I manage to snap out some of these photos and it was beautiful morning walking to the post office.
Running around in the city a lot of families in Vietnam keep small breed of dogs and some them are really taken care properly.
I don’t see many stray dogs in Saigon as still the dog meat consume is still very common.
But some of the families have nice dogs like this one, when they closing their shops they put this little furry on top of their shop. It really gets my attention and I quickly get my camera to have it taken.
The owner and the dog seems enjoyed the attention.
The shop keeper dog
It’s like this neighbor of us enjoyed more attention and his name is Mr. Yip he very sturdy but very sweet dog who always greeted by regular customers that his parent have selling food and freshly squeeze fruit juice. I can tell Mr. Cip enjoyed a loving parent who looks after him and his 2 adorable companion the kitties.
Seeing of course all these furies makes me think and miss my bunch in the house.
But normally I check my house 5-6x a day just to make sure that all my furies and the furies that board with us are all good and no problem.
So far, I am enjoying my short stay in Saigon.
I’m looking forward to go home and seeing my packs getting excited what Mum brings to them of course I have to make sure I bring something when I go home.
Also to give way to some of my plants that needs sun to bloom and grow.
