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.
- Theophile Gautier

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 ...

Cat quote of the day:

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

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!

Cat quote of the day:
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???

A cat is more intelligent than people believe, and can be taught any crime.

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"!
