Afternoon delight

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Muffin strikes a hypnotic pose on a rainy Sunday afternoon ...

And in no time, the denizens of Hougang 80210 found themselves in a state of "comatose" ...

Psssst. Mama Piggy, Du Monster and Du Terror would like to wish Papa Porky a very "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"

Business as usual ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... or should I say, cattiness as usual?

The Monster and the Terror are at each other's throat again ...

Which is more beautiful--feline movement or feline stillness?

The jab is mightier than the cane

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

A picture of rare serenity - the cats, that is, not the neighbourhood.

The Monster and the Terror returned home from the vet, quiet and subdued. Must be the side effects of the vaccination, or could it be post-traumatic sulking sydrome? Heheh ... Usually, no amount of remonstrations or brandishing of the cane could have achieved such an effect, we enjoyed the "peace" in the house while it lasted ...

As expected, Kootoo Monster took his jab like an angel, he didn't flinch at all. Papa Porky thinks it's because Kootoo is too fat to feel the poking needle. Well, tipping the scales at 5.5 kilograms, I must say he is a bit on the round side.

Waaaah!! The vet said I have to watch my diet. Is she calling me FAT??!!??!!

As for Muffin Terror, let's just say that he could have be a dramatist in his previous life. He hissed, spat and swiped at the vet and her never-say-die assistant, who tried holding him in various positions for the jab. They finally succeeded by holding him by the scruff. Although the vet reassured us that Muffin wasn't the worst case she has come across so far, I am pretty sure she was glad that she wouldn't be seeing him for jabs till a year later!

I may be small, but I pack a punch!

V Day tomorrow ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

V stands for Vet, that is.

And Vaccination.

I think we should have no problem with Kootoo Monster, he took his last few jabs pretty well.

You can run but you can't hide, goondu Kootoo.

As for Muffin Terror, I think it would be wise to bring along the kitchen mitten so that when he starts biting and scratching, at least there would be some protection ...

Intrepid Muffin showing off his sharp tongue and even sharper fangs.

Three little pigs ...

When you can't beat 'em, drug 'em ...

Or should I say "fix" 'em? Heheh.

Will the administration of this ...

and this ...

lead to more of this ...

... and this?

Watch this space.

First anniversary ...

It's exactly ONE year since I came into the House of the Pigs ...

July 2005: Sweet Young Thing.

November 2005: Can barely fit into the window ledge.

March 2006: Have resigned to perching on the scratching post platform instead ...

Cat quote of the day:
People who wish to salute the free and independent side of their evolutionary character acquire cats. People who wish to pay homage to their servile and salivating roots own dogs.

A Tale of Two Kitties

The slob who throws his weight around, literally.

The lithe, mean, purring machine.

The Pensive Thinker.

An Inquisitive Mind.

Cat quote of the day:
My cat the clown: paying no mind to whom he should impress. Merely living his life, doing what pleases him, and making me smile.

The More We Get Together

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Staying together, the cats endeavoured to command the green glitter ball to move forward with sheer eye power.

There you have it -- the first photo of the Monster and the Terror together, in a show of peace and harmony ... albeit for 5 seconds.

Kootoo still hunts Muffin down as if he's a little rodent, while cheeky Muffin has no qualms about pouncing on the lardball who is like five times his size.

Otherwise, things are a-okay ... can somebody tell me how to stop Kootoo from pilfering Muffin's food?
