"The cats relocated to Hong Kong with me
in 2001. [They have all] passed away apart
from Digui, who became a family member
from birth," says Leung, assistant manager at

As well as Digui -- the eldest cat at 17 years
old -- Leung lives with an eight-year-old tab-

and white short-haired cat named Milton.
Both were rescued from the street. Milton,
who is female despite her male moniker,
was found when she was two weeks old by
a friend who provides animal home-staying
services. She has been living with Leung
since Christmas 2010. "I will probably adopt

come me at the
front door when
I return home," she
says. "I like the sound
they make even when they
complain. I like their soft and
warm fur and how they purr when I
stay close to them, although Tsui Tsui gives
me quite a few scratches once in a while."

around animals, her
previous job working as
an accounting officer for an animal welfare
charity increased her interest. "It was really
fun. There was a vet clinic in the same build-
ing so sometimes we would bring pets with
us to work," recalls Leung. "There were also
cats and dogs staying in the building. So we
could see them walk around everyday. Work-
ing for them was meaningful."
