Three months ago, the first time Zheng Tan saw Chubs, he was still small and skinny.
Currently he is growing into his namesake, so Zheng Tan had mad respect for the old aunty who’d given Chubs his name, she’s really amazing.
As if sensing the sudden movements on the side of the balcony, Chubs, who was squatting on top of the instant noodles, leaned sideways to look out the window,
and because the extent of his movement was rather big, the instant noodles squashed under his butt made a crispy ‘’crack” sound.
Hearing this sound, Chubs instantly froze in mid-lean and then with its ears drooping he slowly moved back into position, not looking back towards the balcony.
A mournful cry came from the background.
Zheng Tan smirked, feeling a teensy bit guilty. Alright, looks like the amount of supper Chubs’ is going to get tonight will be decreased again.
The son of the old aunty who feeds Chubs, works at the provincial military district.
Every month, there will be a week or two where the son would bring the old aunty over for a period of time, and Chubs would follow along.
There’s also times where her son will come and stay over for a few days, and each time this happens, it becomes would become a torturous time for Chubs.
Zheng Tan recalled the military training back in the first year of university. After making a mistake, the instructor would give the punishment of standing at attention.
As standing at attention was not possible for the seemingly “spineless” cats right now, Chubs would often be sent to squat on instant noodles.
After squatting, the amount of food deducted would be based on the severity of the cracks in the noodles.
On the other side, Papa Jiao had already parked the vehicle. Zheng Tan leaped down from the balcony railings, then followed Papa Jiao back to their home apartment.
When they entered through the doors, they saw that Mama Jiao had also returned, but the look inside her eyes as she watched Zheng Tan was a bit out of the ordinary.
The staring caused Zheng Tan’s fur to stand on end. He hurriedly ran into Gu You Zi’s room. After entering the room, Zheng Tan laid behind the door with his ears perked up.
“What’s the matter?” asked Papa Jiao.
“Oh, it’s just that Yellowy’s passed away!” sighed Mama Jiao.
Zheng Tan doubled back. Yellowy, that blockhead, was still alive and hopping around a few days ago and exerting his endless energy, how could it…
Zheng Tan listened to the conversation between Papa Jiao and Mama Jiao again, before he realized that what they had said was “spayed” and not “passed away”.
Does this mean, Yellowy’s become an eunuch now?!
“I heard from Sister Ling, doing this can remove some of Yellowy’s bad habits.
It just so happens Yellowy is eight months old, and can go under the knife… Today Sister Ling also asked me if we also needed to send our Ash to Xiao Guo’s, to have that done,
but I gave my refusal.” Mama Jiao said.
Zheng Tan was sweating cold bullets behind the door, but after hearing the final part, his anxious heart relaxed quite a bit.
“Our family cat doesn’t need it.” Papa Jiao approved, “Each family’s cat is different, her’s is suitable, ours might not be.
In the future when Sister Ling is advising you, you can just give them a straight refusal and it’ll be fine.”
“En, I was also thinking this way.” Receiving support, Mama Jiao’s face once again lit up with a smile.
Zheng Tan who was squatted behind the door heaved a long sigh of relief.
If he were to really be sent off to undergo the operation, he would rather run away, far far away, than have a knife touch his family jewels.
Zheng Tan gave a silent salute to that blockhead Yellowy. He’d heard that, in the past Yellowy’d liked to crazily urinate everywhere.
At home, even when he’d been placed in the cat litter tray, he’d still managed to spray its pee outside without missing a single drop, so Yellowy’s family used two layers of cat litter trays.
The external layer was the one that was crucial to its task. As for the surface of the households, Yellowy was even more fervent.
Over on this side, the odour of that guy’s pee can be smelled in many places of the eastern residence.
For this reason alone, Zheng Tan had given that guy a thrashing for who knows how many rounds now, but that guy clearly belonged to the type that won’t learn anything,
even after repeated lessons.
Since Yellowy’s life was no longer at risk, Zheng Tan also didn’t worry over it any more. Cats have a cat’s fate.
Ever since realizing he had transformed into this appearance, Zheng Tan had always told himself to get used to it as much as he could.
