On the highway? Are you crazy?
How did your dad not hear you?
Our flat was on the third floor, and on top of that our apartment was facing the highway so the noise of the trucks and other vehicles would've made it difficult. But he could've seen me take the bike out coz my parents' bedroom window was facing the highway...lol!
Kittens are mega-cute! Has your neighbor thought about getting the 'mom' fixed?
See in India cats are not the kind of pets like dogs are...you know like you have different breeds of dogs and all. Cats are basically stray here, and each cat has its territory which would be like a couple of streets typically. The cat kinda belongs to all the ppl on the street, rather the cat chooses which families will be its human friends...lol! The family she is most attached to, she normally litters in their house. So this cat, when she was a kitten, she and her brother were with me...then when they became like 10-12 yr old kids kinds, the boy started to venture out. The girl was very timid then so she would be very scared. Since I'd be at the office the whole day I asked my neighbors' kids to take care of them during the day...then one day the boy was attacked by a dog and he died
Since then the girl has been with them and now she is pregnant! Damn she is not even out of her teens man...Last October they were born....ggggrrrrrrrrrr...Teen pregnancies are not just human problems after all!
Neutering cats is not required as such...the fact that there are too many stray dogs in Bangalore basically keeps the cat population down
Normally the cat's chosen "owner" will typically leave a small window open at night so she can come in and go out...cats can't be inside the house at night...lol! They have to hunt.
