樓上樓下 Upstairs and Downstairs

謝安安收編於2015年10月25日,原本是我家樓下的小食客,和姐姐謝靜靜一起來吃飯,後來因為靜靜腳受傷,我撈去就醫,所以把謝安安一併帶走。當時心中信硩旦旦的等靜靜腳傷養好,兩貓結紮就放回原地,所以兩貓都剪耳,但後來還是心軟留下兩姐妹。

I brought AnnAnn Hsieh home on 25 Oct. 2015. She was one of the strays I fed downstairs my apartment, came to eat my food with her sister JeanJean Hsieh. One day JeanJean appeared with a foot injury, I brought her home for medication, certainly I brought AnnAnn as well. I was so much determined that I would send them back downstairs, so I had them spayed and ear clipped. But my weak mind got better of me, eventually they stayed and became my cats.
 



謝安安在樓下當食客時很常小氣,趁她吃飯時要偷摸她都摸不到,現在回想起來其實忘了當初是如何捉到她的。帶回家後把兩姐妹先放在一個房間隔離,然後便放她們自由,在家中隨意走動。每晚我到家時,一開門謝安安都會很興奮的衝出來迎接我(=食物)。有一天我一開門謝安安又衝出來,但衝過頭出了門,接著她便一路往樓下跑去,我立刻跟下樓,腦中閃過最壞的狀況是捉不到她,但她曾在樓下生活過,也許會記得我放飯的地方,再回來找我。但我還是捉到了她,把她帶回樓下。很妙的是,從那一天開始我到家開門時謝安安再也不衝出來了,我猜她知道衝出去就是回到以前的生活,但她比較喜歡室內生活。以前很小氣不讓我摸的謝安安,現在會自己跑來窩在我身邊。樓上樓下不同的生活,謝安安選擇住樓上。

When AnnAnn lived downstairs, I could never manage to touch her, even while she was concentrating on eating. Now I just cannot recall how I managed to catch her and bring her home. When they were home, I kept them in a room for quarantine. After a period of time I set them free, allowed them to roam at home. Every night when I got home, AnnAnn always rushed toward the door to greet me (=food). One day she got so excited, or too excited, when she rushed toward the door, she ran all the way pass the door and headed downstairs. I followed her immediately, thinking the worst situation was that I could not get her back. But she used to live downstairs, maybe she would showed up around the spot where I used to feed her. However, I got her and brought her back upstairs. Strangely enough, ever since that episode, she has never rushed to greet me when I get home. I guess she learned that rushing downstairs meant she would be back to her stray life. Since indoor life is better, she chose to stay indoor. As I said I was not able to touch her when she lived downstairs, now she comes and cuddles up beside me. Upstairs and downstairs, AnnAnn has made her decision.
