On April 29, we brought MJ and Simba with us to Malolos, Bulacan, where we met with mom’s friend who was here on vacation from Vancouver. Simba was promised to her when he was born and since she can’t take him with her to Vancouver, she’s giving him to her godchild as a gift. MJ, on the other hand, was going to stay with her sister.

It was a sad day because we’re letting them go, we will miss them terribly. But it was also a happy day because we know they’d be taken care of well, and less house work for mom. We can still visit them when we want to, their new owners live within reach.

Luckily, they both adjusted quickly. They walked/ran around the lawn and the street, they were given some food and water which they ate and drank. Simba was scared because he wasn’t let out of the house growing up, unlike MJ who experienced walking around the neighborhood where we once lived.

Here are pictures of MJ and Simba that night.

Simba looks so sad.

Following the leader.

Saying goodbyes.

Still sad. 🙁
