Earlier that night when we passed by Scooby's, we noticed a kitten which was about a week old crying on top of a garbage bin. It was obviously hungry and homeless. My heart really went out for that kitten but with three dogs and four cats that we already have at home, it would be not within our capacity to take in another pet. So we just passed it and proceeded to Jollibee at the opposite side of the road. We were seated close to the window where we could see everything outside from the inside. In fact, we could even see the trash bin where the kitten was. As we were about to eat our food, we noticed two foreigners (from the white race) stooping to have a look at the kitten. They were obviously talking about the plight of the kitten. Then we saw the man (about 28 years old) pick up the kitten which he placed on the pavement. He tried to feed the kitty with what he was drinking at that time but the kitten did not seem to want it. Meanwhile, the man's companion, a pretty lady about his age, was clearly begging him to go already. Obviously, the man was not in the mood to leave the kitten just like that. Then we saw the lady gesticulating and trying to convince him to let it go, but still the man kept hold on the kitten and even tried to talk to it. Exasperated, the woman left him and the guy was left behind with the kitten. We saw how the man was closely studying the kitten's face which probably made him decide to take it with him. Seeing that was like seeing the most beautiful thing we've ever seen in years. We felt happy for the cat for the man did not pass his opportunity to help a poor creature. Lovely.
