Tippex teaching Lord Derbyshire..
Tippex : "Hey you, little one. Why are you being all lovey dovey with the humans around here?"
Lord Derbyshire : "Isn't that we're supposed to do? Be all manja-manja with them so they look after us?"
Tippex : No lah! You only need to be manja-manja with them so they bring you home. Be nice for a while, then after that, just be all manja-manja and cute when you want food! Let me tell you, you're safe here now. They are not going to send you back to wherever it is you came from. Just chill! Be your own cat!
I am convinced the above conversation took place between Lord Derbyshire and his Abang Tippex. Let me tell you why. Lord Derbyshire has been hanging out with Tippex a lot, following him around, sleeping on the chair next to him, I assume Tippex is teaching him how to live life as a domestic cat. When I first found Lord Derbyshire, I had no problems at all carrying him back to my car. He just sat quietly in my arms. Now, I can barely hold him for a few seconds and he wants me to put him down. Same thing happened to Tippex. When my brother took him out of the cage at the animal shelter, he dug his claws into my brother's shirt and started rubbing his face into my brother, basically begging us to take him home. Once he settled in here, he refused to be carried anymore.
These animals are some kind of con artists!
