Alice and Her Piccola Principessa, Trio

I brought Trio home on Saturday, 23 June. So... I have a new cat and I would like to introduce her to all my friends! 
When I entered the "Cat Zone" at SPCA Penang, I was greeted with loud, bold and cheerful meows. It was like a Kitty Orchestra. Every single cat, big and small, were so cute! I stood there for a moment just looking at each and every one of them, wondering to myself, if only I could take them all home...
It was a hard choice to make. The helper said I could let the cats loose for them to run around. That way, I would be able to see how they interact. I let three or four out at the same time. Again, it was so hard to choose. Every single furkid was special. So I spent one precious hour there, playing with them and taking their photos.
I decided to follow my cuore (heart) and Trio the piccola principessa (little princess) came home with me. The adoption papers were signed and she's all mine! Meet Trio, my friends!
Hello, my name is Trio... Will you be my new mommy?
The Trio Story
According to Lily of SPCA Penang, Trio joined the SPCA fur-family this year on 11 April. She hails from Sungai Petani, Kedah, which is another state in Malaysia. Kedah is about 45 minutes' drive from Penang. The Good Samaritan who brought her in is a social feeder. Someone dumped Trio outside the social feeder’s house.
The Trio Personality
She's a calm and quiet cat. She hardly uttered a word at SPCA but the look she gave me was intense. I knew she was the one for me. In the car (a private taxi), she miao-ed for the first time and it was the sweetest sound I've heard in a long, long time. She's absolutely beautiful!
(Once in a while, she is capable of going completely matta (mad; insane) on me but she's still the sweetest thing.) 

Trio is a great climber! This was waaaaay up on the ceiling. I noticed a coincidence here with the colors of Italy. Her collar was a beautiful combination of green and red (colors of the Italian flag) and at that point of time, I hadn't realize it at all. Even her given name, Trio, is Italian. Haha!


  1. Trio is one lucky cat to find a good mommy!

    1. Hi Naida! I think I'm also a lucky mommy that she picked me and settling in so well. Three months had passed and she's getting bigger and bigger. She has an interesting and loving way of communicating, and she makes the loveliest sounds...

  2. I love your new banner! And I love Trio! My daughter and I volunteer at the animal shelter here in Orlando, and witness the selection process every week. It is magical the way a cat can find the right owner (and we really try to help the process as well). Of course WE want to bring them all home with us too, but we already have six. We are suckers. Trio definitely won the kitty lottery!

    1. Thank you, Sandy! Wow, SIX kitties! It's wonderful that you and your daughter volunteer at the animal shelter. The helper left me to it during the selection process and I wished I could spend longer than an hour there, but because I came with a cab and the driver's waiting for me (I don't drive...), I can't stay any longer. Kitty Orchestra was music to my ears!

  3. Trio is beautiful! I know the two of you will be happy for a long time.

    1. Thank you, Kathy! Trio says HI to you! I hope we will have many years together. :)

  4. She looks very dainty and pretty and feminine.

  5. She's soooo beautiful!!! Congrats Alice
