  • Jayden feeds the Monsters

    Jayden has been making all kinds of Play-Doh foods for us. It’s his new craze! He also did not forget the cats and made them pretend food too. He first offered his Play-Doh cat food to Riley but she didn’t know how play pretend. And she ran away. So I let him offer it to…

  • A Calico mother-and-daughter portrait

    I think in no time, Akira will be the same size as her mother, Samantha!

  • The Monsters vs the Blondies

    Everybody’s in this photo this morning. And as always, it’s a total joy to feed the Monsters because they have a terrific appetite. I cannot say the same of the Blondies, though. It’s considered VERY lucky that I could get at least three of them together for a meal this morning. Normally, they will all…

  • The Creamy-Gerald antagonism continues

    Sigh…it’s resumed, actually. Creamy has come back, not necessarily for food, just to occupy our porch. Out of courtesy, I offered some food. He wasn’t particularly hungry, actually, but he ate, perhaps also out of courtesy! Misty doesn’t really feel comfortable with Creamy. But she also ate some. Actually, when Creamy comes, Misty sounds the…

  • Ah…raining a day too late!

    There was very heavy rain at our place just now. Thunder and the works, but still not as bad as fireworks. Tabs is our most scaredy cat. She would quickly ask to be let into the storeroom during thunderstorms. Wished it rained rhinos and hippos last night. A day too late!

  • Kai fights back to protect her territory

    For a few weeks now, the Blondies (yes, all females) have been spraying urine around the house whenever they come out to play. Before I go any further, I would just like to say this: Neutering stops the aggression and competitive behaviours due to mating, but it might not stop the territorial behaviour or even…

  • After another dreadful fireworks-filled night

    Jade Emperor’s birthday came and went last night. The fireworks was madness, but thank goodness there was none of that war-zone machine-gun blasts last night. Probably that fellow isn’t Hokkien or he just doesn’t celebrate the Jade Emperor’s birthday. Fireworks should be banned. There is no two ways about it. But if there HAS to…

  • Happiness is playing with a kitten at a cafe, or anywhere!

    Jayden grew up surrounded by all our cats, so he loves them. Here’s Jayden at the swimming pool cafe, playing with a little kitten. It’s really so nice to see animals being allowed to roam around at the cafe. Jayden had a nice time playing with the kitten while we waited for our food to…

  • Our guava tree…and the dilemma

    We have almost zero luck in planting anything, but by sheer luck, we managed to plant a guava tree and it actually fruited! We planted it from a seed of an organic guava. We haven’t really been 100% successful in enjoying our fruits, because half of them are eaten up by fruit fly larvae despite…

  • Riley respects Mina’s space

    When Dorami and Mina first came to our house (only for babysitting), Riley wanted very much to make friends with them. Dorami also responded positively, but once the cats settled in, Mina decided the bedroom is theirs and she hissed at Riley and “pushed” her to the attached bathroom. Since then, Riley still accompanies me…

  • The Blondies’ eating pattern

    I wish the Blondies ate like the Monsters!! But they don’t. However, weight-wise, they are fine. All are above 4kg. All muscular, pretty much like the Monsters too. Perhaps it’s due to the platforms where they get to exercise daily! But truly, it would be so much easier if they would eat like the Monsters!…

  • Creamy returns again

    This morning, when I went out to feed the Porch Cats, all three were there. Oh dear….what’s the relationship dynamics now? Just yesterday, husband says he saw Gerald chasing Creamy out of the porch. Hmm…really? I wasn’t there so I don’t really know, but if Gerald did chase Creamy out, I’d say that’s a good…

  • So close and so comfortable (the Blondies)

    The only time I can get the Blondies together to eat a meal is when I offer them kibble, particularly the RC Dental kibble. They love that! It’s junk time!! I sure hope this dental kibble helps to “brush their teeth”, at least a little bit because it is impossible for me to physically brush…

  • Worshipping Bastet?

    According to ancient Egyptian history, Bastet was the goddess of protection, pleasure, and the bringer of good health. She had the head of a cat and a slender female body. Bastet was the daughter of Ra, sister of Sekhmet, the wife of Ptah, and the mother of Mihos. Since the Second Dynasty, Bastet was worshiped as a deity, most…

  • Riley’s smart smuggle operation

    We are talking about these small balls that Dorami plays with. Dorami and Mina are staying with us for a few days, but for their safety, they are confined in the big bedroom upstairs. Riley, the KPC, follows me up to feed Dorami and Mina for every meal. For the past few days, I’ve been…
