  • Gerald, Misty and the Blondies

    Misty decided she wanted to come in to eat breakfast this morning. She’s always welcome to come inside, but the thing is, she will always want to go back out too. Samantha eats, which is a normal occurrence. Not breaking news…. Indra and Akira eat – wow! Kai eats…after some persuasion and change of venue!…

  • A peaceful porch today

    Creamy did not turn up. That’s why. So it’s all peaceful at the porch today. Socks also did not come. That’s good. Perhaps their families are back from the long holidays. Sometimes, Gerald is willing to share from a same plate, but sometimes, no. Nowadays, I can add a generous amount of water or soup…

  • The Creamy incursion

    Creamy came again this morning. But this time, it looked like it wasn’t to eat. He wasn’t hungry. He just came to bully Gerald and Misty. And it wasn’t anything physically aggressive too. It was a silent incursion. His presence was enough to incite fear in poor Gerald and Misty. I first offered some food…

  • Who is Samantha’s favourite daughter?

    Samantha has three daughters – Kai, Akira and Indra. Is Riley also her daughter from an earlier batch? We don’t know. So, who is Samantha’s current favourite daughter? Undoubtedly, it’s Kai, her eldest! While Akira and Indra always escapes to the house every day to play, Kai stays behind with her mum. At one time,…

  • Creamy visits again…and is very hungry!!

    Must be the long holidays…. Creamy came to visit today and was very, very hungry! Hi, Creamy!! Long time no see. He seemed very, very hungry but was a bit worried about Gerald. Hunger overcame all fear. Misty joined him! Perhaps he has not even for quite awhile? That’s Misty’s leftovers, but Creamy is still…

  • Gerald and Misty’s patience

    It had rained early this morning, so the park was wet. Whenever this happens, Gerald and Misty will not go to the park but instead, they will wait patiently on the ledge for me as I walk round and round the neighbourhood. Look at them! Such loyal cats. An acquaintance in the neighbourhood asked if…

  • JoTong’s latest rescue project and reflections

    This is JoTong’s story: These past few weeks I have been helping a feeder from my taman to catch and neuter cats abandoned by a tenant who moved out last month. According to the feeder, tha tenant just released the cats out from her compound. As to date, we have caught 4 and sent for…

  • Blondies, after a Rey attack

    The Blondies’ meals are usually disturbed by a visit by Gerald on the ledge or a Rey incursion. In the morning, it’s always Gerald’s visit that distracts them. They would get all excited; a bit too excited to want to eat. In the evening, like this evening, it was Rey launching a full scale attack…

  • Akira and Indra on a cold rainy day

    Why is Akira sleeping amongst Jayden’s books? Because Indra had taken her favourite chair. Oh well….why wait for Indra to vacate the chair, just sleep.  Indra also has the same plan. Until Indra decides it’s much more comfortable next to me on the bed. Yay! I got back my chair!!! Indra really knows how to…

  • The Monsters’ cat tree (video by Golden Triology)

    This is long overdue! Gold Triology made this video of the Monsters’ cat tree some weeks back. I told them I would post it on the blog. It is a very sturdy cat tree, after reinforcements were made, that is! But that’s the good thing about Golden Triology. They take so much pride in their…

  • The Blondies’ morning

    It was a 66.7% success at breakfast today with Indra abstaining from eating breakfast. I really don’t know how she can be the heaviest (yet youngest) Blondie when she abstains from eating so often. I don’t include Samantha in the equation because she eats. She isn’t a problematic eater, only her daughters are. This is…

  • Gerald and Misty

    Here’s Gerald and Misty today, accompanying me at the park and later, for gardening. Always best friends forever! Safely back in the porch now. Hmm….interesting smells! Misty still gets her kibble snack when she asks for it, but at least she is now willing to eat wet food without the need to top it with…

  • Reverting to the no-succession plan

    You might remember that ever since AnimalCare started on 31st May 2009, I have been running all the day-to-day operations. As a registered society, we also have an Executive Committee and we vote on important decisions pertaining to AnimalCare as a registered society. For years, I had been looking for a successor to take over…

  • Riley’s puff balls

    Ming-Yi gifted Riley a whole set of puff balls many months ago. Riley loves them but in just a short while, all of the balls willl end up under the fridge, the piano or a cupboard. But Riley is a very, very intelligent cat and she will not ask us to get the balls for…

  • The Blondies and their breakfast

    There was no morning rain today, so it’s back to the usual for the Blondies’ breakfast. Samantha decided she would eat up on the platform. I had to chase Indra all over until she agreed to eat on the table in the room. Kai and Akira said they both don’t need any food. I finally…
