  Maktoob alias Maki…..the day I rescued him

Eaten by the dogs
he climbed a tree to safety
his siblings were not as lucky

The word maktoob means:
“destined” or “already written” in Arabic

Alhamdulillah, today almost two years later, he is our undisputed….

  5. I just read your chapter 1 of Maktoob, and his eyes seem to say “life is good.” I wonder if the one who discarded the sack, was eventually thrown over the ‘wall of life,’ and met the ‘pitbulls of hate…?’ or an Angel…!

    • Hopefully that karma was delivered 10 fold!!! Who would do that? I agree with you and hopefully someday he will face that “pitbulls of hate” squad and
      justice will be done! Thank you for this comment.

    • Awww thank you for this comment.. Yes if you read the first post, Maki had a rough start, but so happy to say he is thriving!! I went from having my doubts I could handle another cat to not being able to imagine life without him.. Shine on dear poet!!
