Crime and Punishment




Subjected to 5 hours of Concierto de Aranjuez - Adagio, Nessun Dorma, Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini, The Magic Flute, etc etc etc on Mama Piggy's Nakamichi SoundSpace 5 daily, until my unruly behaviour is kept at bay.

Rats ... gotta find a way to destroy the Nakamichi soon.

All I want for Christmas ...

Seeing my futile attempts at coaxing the uncooperative domestic lizards down from their lofty lodge, Papa Porky got me a yummylicious Gecko that is stuffed with catnip! I lurrrve Papa Porky!!

Wake me up in time for the New Year celebrations ... Snzzz ...

Cats are a tonic, they are a laugh, they are a cuddle, they are at least pretty just about all of the time and beautiful some of the time.

Get fresh!

Ahhhh, I lurrrrve the smell and delicate feel of fresh bedsheets ... They are great to roll in!

Erm, Mama Piggy, would very much appreciate it if you could, in future, include my ears in the photos... but I digress ...

I also lurrrrve freshly lined litter boxes ...

... and newly mopped floor (never mind that I look like I have the head of a kitten and the body of a buffalo) ...

This is Penguin, my predecessor at Hougang Hills 09519.

Mama Piggy picked him up from SPCA in January, he was only two-and-a-half months old then.

But he was too bitey for Papa Porky's liking, and the last straw was when he nibbled on Papa's nipple (mwahahahaha).

So Penguin was packed off to Mama's sister's place and is living happily ever after ...

But what a cat - all dressed up in a tux and nowhere to go! Snigger ...

Mind your business!

What is this?! Can't a cat do his business in absolute peace and privacy?

Buzz off, I say ... or else the pong will kill you!!

A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.

Itsy Bitey Cat

This evening, Senor Achiwawa (Papa Porky's good friend who has three cats [!!] at home) paid me a visit. I was as good as an angel, until Senor Achiwawa started playing rough with me. But he is a good sport, he didn't flinch when I sank my teeth into his limbs. Looks like my three feline comrades at Marine Parade have trained Senor Achiwawa well, I am proud of them!

I shall practise biting Papa Porky more often so that he will be as tough as Senor Achiwawa, whaddya think?

Belly nice!

Look at the six-pack on me ... What? You can't see 'em?

Oh well, I guess the fur gets in the way sometimes ...

Cat quote of the day:

A cat sleeping on your bed is a far more pleasant companion than a ninety-pound Labrador with bad breath. Furthermore, cats do not snore or break wind.

Happy Bathday ....

... NOT!!!

We cats do not need to shower, for felines are NATURALLY clean creatures, unlike dogs which smell and have BAD breath ...

But my crazy Mama decided that I could do with a Green Tea-flavoured bath, much to my protestations ...

Now I know how a chicken in a slaughterhouse feels!

Perhaps I should hide under the quilt forever ....

And when they try to get me, I shall stare at them with Riddick eyes! Miaow!!

Cat quote of the day:

With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?

Supersize me!

Before ...

After ...

See what six months of Hill's Science "Diet" has done to me! I can hardly hide the bulges at the sides!

Waaah!! I want my money back!

Cat quote of the day:

It is a matter to gain the affection of a cat. He is a philosophical animal, tenacious of his own habits, fond of order and neatness, and disinclined to extravagant sentiment. He will be your friend, if he finds you worthy of friendship, but not your slave.

Eye Candy

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul ...

Mine says: I'm gonna get you, Papa Porky!! You can run but you can't hide! I am coming for your ankles!

Cat quote of the day:

I think it would be great to be a cat! You come and go as you please. People always feed and pet you. They don't expect much of you. You can play with them, and when you've had enough, you go away. You can pick and choose who you want to be around. You can't ask for more than that.

Shufferin Shuccotash!

I am a good kitty. REALLY. Well, at least for ... 10% of the time??

For one, I can be a lap cat -- when I feel like being one, that is ...

Unfortunately, most of the times I get into some form of trouble.

You see, there are many things at home which a kitten cannot resist.

Like tissue paper for example.

Or flower pots.

Sadly, I soon ran out of things to destroy, for Mama and Papa have put away every piece of fragile ware that I haven't manage to break.

And tissue papers these days are "containerised" too.

Shufferin Shuccotash!!

It's tough being a cat ...

My daily fix ...

Ahhhh ... How I love the monsoon season ... What best way to while the rainy afternoons away than taking a cat nap?

Zzzzzz ...

Zzzzzz ...

Zzzzzz ...

Zzzzzz ...

Zzzzzz ...

Well, don't blame me if I get to sleep 16 hours a day while you slog away at work, I'm genetically programmed!

For a man to truly understand rejection, he must first be ignored by a cat.

Kitty Shitalot

An apple a day keeps the vet away ...

Especially when you've had bad runs like me before.

You see, it's stressful being a kitten, and it is even more stressful moving to a new home, getting used to new furniture, new smells and two towering human beings whom you've met only a few hours ago. It was really daunting. Papa and Mama tried to make me feel at home with TLC -- caressing me and talking to me to soothe my nerves.

To cut a long story short -- I had very bad diarrhoea on my first day at home. Definition of bad: running to the litter box (that is if I make it there in time) once every 1-2 hours. It got so bad that by late evening, there were blood stains in my stools, and Mama's face turned -- [Upmusic please] A Whiter Shade of Pale. She decided that this could not go on forever (by then I had already done my business in the hall, kitchen and toilet, what can I say -- when you've got to let go, you've got to let it go). So we headed for the A&E at Mount Pleasant Animal Hospital, where the vet gave me a jab. Mama's face turned two shades lighter than my curry-like poop when she saw the bill - S$100. Crappy.

My husband said it was him or the cat ... I miss him sometimes ....

My life as James ...

I was a 3½-month-old orphan nicknamed “James” waiting for adoption at SPCA. On that fateful day, 8 May 2005, my Mama and Papa came to the shelter, hoping to find a nice, purry cat. Mama didn’t see me at first, as I was crouching behind the grilles, not jumping about like the other denizens who are dying to catch the attention of the human beings. They were about to leave when Papa suddenly noticed me and told Mama, “That’s a nice kitten over there!” Mama opened the cage and cuddled me in her arms. Hoping to go home with Mama, I put on my best behaviour, curled up into a ball of fur and purred at her …I could tell that Mama’s heart melted at that very moment, and as they say, the rest is history … :)

Can’t believe how scrawny and miserable I looked back then!

And look at me now – am I handsome or what???

Kootoo's mewsings

My name is Kootoo. My stupid owners - Papa Porky and Mama Piggy - named me after an Irish cat owned by Porky's friends. Kootoo is such a stupid name! What the &%*#! I mean, the Irish donch know what is "kootoo", but here in Singapore, everyone knows it sounds like "kutu", the Malay word for lice!! My mama named me Kootoo cos she finds me very "sticky", clinging on to her like a lice when I first saw her at SPCA. Okay, fine ... but do you know what it feels like to be called a "head lice", woman?!?!?!? Worse than being called a Fatso. Speaking of which, you probably can see from the pix that my belly is threatening to spilleth over, thanks to Hill's Science Diet for kittens. Yes I am still a kitten, you ignoramus. I will be one year old on 27 January 06, and that would make me an adult!!

Despite being the youngest member of the family, I am the Monster of the House, and even Papa Porky can't touch me sometimes, ha!! Will show you more of my "growing up" pictures later!! Ciao! Or should I say "Miao"!
