Joyous video of cats playing Islamabad, Pakistan

Here is a video made by Ahsan of his cats 50/50 and Laila playing on what appears to be the roof terrace of his home. I have been to Pakistan and India so I can almost smell and sense the place. There is a distinctly different sensory experience in Pakistan or India compared to London, UK! That is obvious I suppose but it is very real.

Here is Ahsan’s description:

Here are my two raised rescued kittens, who are residing with me and this is 6:30 AM early morning when I have brought my LAILA (14 weeks old kitten) the white one out of her protection cage to play with my 6 months old kitten 50/50. They love and enjoy to wrestle and play with each other daily and I stand aside to watch them. They are happy with each other and both female felines are demanding to each other to be in this place with us. ENJOY!

I love this video because we are able to hear Ahsan speak to us and we are also able to better sense the surroundings of a far away and foreign place (for those of us living in the UK and USA).

But the overriding reason why I love the video is because we can see Ahsan’s cats really enjoying themselves together. They are buddies providing play and companionship; a little island of cat bliss amongst what we in the West, judging by Ahsan’s comments, perceive as a pretty harsh environment for the domestic and stray cat. Quite a contrast.

Thanks to Ahsan, 50/50 and Laila have as good a life as a domestic cat can have, anywhere, except perhaps for the lower availability of veterinary care in Pakistan.

  1. Oh for sure Michael, It’s the most loveliest thing seeing Kittens play and learn things. I just love the joy seeing them play so happily.

  2. Kittens are so lovely when they are playing. I remember how Playful and Cute Jasmine was as a kitten so full of energy. I mean she’s still a kitten in a way as she’s just 8 months.


    1. Thank you so much about the video and I hope that your son will get kitties and the joy we cat lovers can have with these babies (cats n kittens), God bless you and may you be blessed in all aspects of your life, amen <3

      1. What an ideal location for cats to romp and play! Everything around the place had a calming effect. Peaceful. Do you live on a quiet street off to yourself? I really enjoyed that. Thank you so much.

  4. From Coming from a Small Town and a Small Country. I can really get lost looking on Google Maps I’ve done it looking at Cities where some of you all live. Looks amazing though. Was sad to hear about the two kitties. It must be so horrible. I just Loved the Video your a natural. I’m so pleased you found Poc. Your articles are always so wonderful and its great to see a different side of the world that you dont usually see.

    1. Thank you so much Kylee, I was waiting for your comments, actually Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan and it is a very modern city. It is a huge city. And very well developed other than other cities of Pakistan but the people have been settled here from very low villages and towns and are not very well educated. It seems to me that they are just status complex in their own but actually they are ZERO and ignorant.

      1. Hi there, sorry I was late replying. Been busy here having extra people in house ๐Ÿ™ I go away in a few days for some respite. Which I hope will be fine. Yes I couldn’t believe the Size of some Maps I remember looking the size of Switzerland and was overwhelmed how big it was. Anyway getting back to Cats I think you do an amazing job. The Cats here are adjusting to life having other people in the house. Thankfully Only one more week to go I hope. I love seeing other Maps of where people come from as its nice seeing what its like over people places. I think the Cats will be fine here while I’m away. Well I hope they will. My friend Rob will look after them. I’ve noticed the lady that’s staying here is getting better of taking notice and the Cats seem abit happier. Though Jasmine still not sure.

      2. Looking at photos of Islamabad I am very surprised at how modern and Western looking it is. I have some misconceptions to rectify. I drove through Pakistan in 1971 and it has changed a lot. But I am sure that some parts of Pakistan have not modernised as you say. It is like India in that there is a widening gap between the wealthy and the poor, the big city life and the rural life.

  5. Loved the video Ahsan and I really enjoyed your narrative as well ๐Ÿ™‚ Your daughters are lovely and they play so well together I don’t think they use their claws do they? So happy and healthy and heart warming to watch, thanks for taking the time to share with us ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I give almost 16 hours watch to my free roaming cats after my three kittens are dead/killed. ๐Ÿ™

      There is a double door, a window, my wife’s kitchen and window of the kitchen.

      So, I sit in a position with my laptop that double door and a window is in front of me and I can easily sight the terrace. My wife is often in her kitchen (not for cooking but she loves that place) she watch from kitchen.

      I am deciding to have a video webcam on the terrace for night, too.

      Khadija my daughter always keeps her photo cellphone in hand and keep visiting the terrace after every 20 minutes / 30 minutes span.

      I will share more and more videos, articles and snapshots
      of my cats and kittens.

      Just hoping to get new kittens by any of my cat because I am really hurt from my LAILA’s brothers and a sister’s loss.

      We are all hurt by that in the family. Its like someone killed our family children. ๐Ÿ™

      Thank you so much for commenting on this superb event on PoC, as I love cats to watch playing with each other ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you <3

    1. Thank you Barbara, it seems if you like the video, so my heart is happy because you are very silent lady, I think <3

      God bless you and Ruth <3 ameen.

      1. Ruth aka Kattaddorra

        You are right Ahsan, Babz only ever speaks the truth and only says something when there is something sensible to say. She is a wonderfully talented writer but sadly hasn’t much time as she has to go out to work. I’m very lucky to be retired.

    1. Yup DEE you judged LAILA accurately, she is a great activist in motivating other visiting cats, too. But the adult cats run away. TUMTUM sniff the anal area of LAILA and cried out loudly, and ran away, LAILA ran after him and he did not stop anywhere then. We all looked this very seriously smiling under our lips but not laughed at the moment. But could not stop laughing inside our home. ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Cats are cats all over the world. You have two very beautiful kittens. I love their beautiful markings. So happy and carefree. I too would like to see pictures and videos of street cats. I wish I could get some video of our recent visitors. I am in the backroom most of the day now, so I miss their visits. One is a rusty red-calico mix, the other is white and tan. Both are female and average sized. Rusty (my name) lives down the street. The other may be from a nearby friends group of eight strays she feeds. All but one have been TNR’d! If an 86 year old woman can do it…

    Thanks Ahsan and Michael!

    1. I’d like visitors to get the feel and the ambience of what it is like to be a street cat in Pakistan. This is what cat welfare is all about; trying to improve the welfare of unknown, unwanted and unseen cats in the backstreets of some unknown town.

    2. Thank you, too Dan in Tempe <3

      I wish you can make a video or perhaps a few snap snapshots of those fellows and let us share with joy these photos. We are at the same track of loving the creatures of God. I will wait for that ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Take care of your self and May Allah give you strength, health and a long happy beautiful life to live ahead, ameen <3

  7. Sweetest video. Cats are cats! All over the world. Just like people. I loved this glimpse of your kitty habitat. It looks like they have a beautiful life.

    1. Yes they have a better (not the best as west) beautiful life and I am going to work out more better for them, insha Allah.

      Thank you for liking and I request to pray for me for more welfare work to do for these unwanted creatures of Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala, thanks <3

  8. Ruth aka Kattaddorra

    I love this video, Ahsan’s cats look so happy and healthy and it’s all down to him and his caring for them.
    I think this saying is true:
    ‘Saving One Animal Won’t Change the World But It Will Change The World For That One Animal’

    1. And we orthodox moslems believe in saying He who has saved one LIFE (whether human being or innocent animal) have saved HUMANITY.

      Thank you RUTH, your comments+ Michael’s way of presentation and sharing his precious ideas not only guides me but also give me booster of ENERGY.

      Thousand thanks <3 <3 <3 and where is my friend Kylee??? <3 <3 <3

      1. For Americans and British or for that matter anyone living in the West the video is interesting. We rarely see videos like this. I hope you can do some more and some videos perhaps of the street cats of Islamabad (but nothing too gory please).

        1. Gory? thanks for your worries about me, Michael <3

          Don't worry, I am an ORTHODOX, not TALIBAN ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Every thing is under PEACE and for the purpose of TRUTH and WELFARE of these tiny fellows.

          It's my aim and I will do it in PoC, Michael. thank you, too.
