My daughter was begging us for a pet and we finally gave in. We bought Aslan (King Aslan of Narnia) a cross breed of Maine Coon and Persian. He was only about 2 months old when we got him.
We do not know anything about cats – let alone the Maine Coon…(this is where GOOGLE becomes handy).
Aslan became a household name immediately and everyone adored him. We eat, sleep and live Aslan!
A week later, he fell ill.. he was having flu and cough and fever – all at once. He became so fragile and had to stay in the clinic for almost 2 weeks!
We visited him twice and sometimes four times a day…making sure he knew that we all loved him and wanted him back home again…
With much LOVE, FAITH and of course medication Aslan is back on his feet again!
It has been a beautiful ONE and half month experience having him at home and we all regard him as the baby of the house…
Cuddly, charming and sometimes witty – we hope our Aslan will grow BIG STRONG and FRIENDLY!! 🙂
Update: 23 March 2010
Here are some photos – he is now 4.5 months 🙂 and weights 2.39kg…
Hi Nina.. It is fantastic for me to hear from you in Malaysia. It gives visitors to this site, who mainly live in the USA and England, a chance to hear about cats and people in other countries.
Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with Aslan, your first cat.
If you have a picture of Aslan please email me and I will upload it for you:
