Totally adorable and clever Little Riley

As you know, Riley has been creating games to play with Jayden.

Currently, they are playing fetch-the-ball.

Riley has been absolutely amazing in this game. Jayden throws the ball and Riley watches closely. If the ball lands on somewhere safe and easy for Jayden to pick up, Riley lets him pick it up himself. But […]

Samantha is in the “nesting” phase

I contacted the vet to update her on Samantha’s condition. She thinks Samantha is in the “nesting” phase now. It could be anything from 8-36 hours before birthing begins.

The link says that the queen will stop eating 24 hours before labour, but Samantha is still eating! She loves […]

Waiting for Samantha to give birth

Samantha started mewing a little now and then this morning. She was also pacing quite a bit and moving from tray to tray.

I thought she would give birth today, but it hasn’t happened yet.

She also loves to eat Primal and doesn’t want kibble anymore. Well, clever girl! So I’ve been giving her Primal […]

Riley plays with Jayden

Riley is now Jayden’s kindy-friend in our house. Previously, it was Ginger.

Ginger allowed Jayden to do anything to him. Riley, on the other hand, plays with Jayden.

Riley first created a game of hide-and-seek with Jayden, during a small circuit with him as Jayden had just learnt to walk.

Now, Riley plays fetch-the-ball with […]

Novel protein, Cubgrub’s Duck, for the Monsters

The easiest clan to try on any new food is the Monsters. They will practically gobble up anything.

So I ordered Cubgrub’s Duck as a novel protein for them. “Novel” means it is uncommon to their diet, so you should only give it once in a while. It is to offset the incidence of allergy […]

Pacifying Indy and Samantha’s news

Indy is quite upset that Bunny’s cage had to be given to Samantha as a maternity ward.

He is no longer using the top of the cage as his penthouse now. When Bunny was around, Indy used to top as his penthouse and after Bunny passed away only did he move INTO the cage. But […]

Catching Samantha and to the vet’s and total pandemonium!

During Indy’s visit, I had brought along Samantha’s faeces. The fecal examination of her stools showed the presence of a lot of Clostridia, a gram-positive anaerobic bacteria. The vet says Samantha would need to be dewormed, given a B-12 injection and if possible, three days of anti-parasitic liquid medicine.

I said the three days of […]

Indy to the vet’s (bacterial infection of gut)

I was worried about Indy’s off-and-on loose stools. So I made an appointment for Indy check-up and at the same time, the vet said I should also bring Samantha in because she too is having diarrhoea.

Indy was ready, inside the carrier, I had to pack a few things, and I asked hubby to go […]

Samantha’s diarrhoea issue

Samantha is still having the large bowel diarrhoea.

It must have started right from the beginning when we brought her indoors on 27th Jan. That time I was still very busy nursing Bunny, so I may be mistaken now but I thought I saw well-formed stools in her litter box on the second day. I’m […]
