Kootie settles in

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Kootie's adopter sent a lovely update today.

"Kootie's leg is getting better and he is very playful so I have to stay with him most of the time because he loves to jump and chases everything. My daughter is really happy and she wakes up early to play with him."

Kootie has gone home!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Thank goodness Kootie's injured leg got better today! The swelling at the left joint went down, and he was almost walking normally.

The adopter came to bring him home this evening, and tomorrow morning, he will be presented to his "owner", a lovely seven-year-old girl whom I am sure will love and cherish him!

All the best dear Kootie!

I don't know why, but I miss the little fella :(

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

A potential adopter came to view Kootie this morning, and just 10 minutes after she was gone, our dear Kootie sprained his knee =_= Nobody saw what happened, we only discovered that he was injured when we noticed him limping.

We decided to bring Kootie to the vet. Vet said his left knee was slightly swollen and gave him an anti-inflammatory jab and some joint supplements. The vet said this injury is common in hyperactive cats. Kootie does jump around the house like a crazed bunny.

The adopter wants to bring Kootie home on Monday, but we'll have to monitor his condition first before deciding if Kootie needs more time to recuperate at foster home.

A glimpse into the future?

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

For the potential adopter of Kootie, here's how your kitty will look like two years down the road. Chubby and extremely cuddly, I must say :)

Kootie (Two months old)

Kootoo (2.5 years old)

Hello Kootie!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Kootie, a Kootoo clone, is available for adoption.

The two-month old tabby boy is being fostered by my sister. The playful rascal has adapted to the multi-cat environment very well, and is especially close to Brownie Tortie. He was found by my brother at the void deck.

The problem with weekends is ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... it's over before you know it.

I am so bone-tired, I need a three-day weekend to recover from all that fire-fighting at work ...

It wasn't a very positive start to the week.

I know it wasn't really my business, but I couldn't help but feel for my good friend and her younger brother, who was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia at the prime of his life. He started an intensive seven-day course of chemotherapy today. I cannot imagine what it is like to have a cocktail of powerful drugs injected into your body day after day, feeling the drugs nibbling away at the misbehaving leukaemia cells and the good ones as well.

I know it hurts. I have seen my mom at her fortnightly chemo session for nasopharyngeal cancer treatment. I remember vividly how she grimaced in obvious discomfort as the killer drugs cruised into her bloodstream. The pain that tingles through her vein via the IV drip spreads from nerve to nerve, synapse to synapse, all over her wretched body. And there was nothing I could do, except to watch helplessly, and curse the damn cancer cells which refused to go away after a full course of radiation. The treatment left my mom zapped, both in spirits and in physical health. She has been in remission for the past two years, and we are hoping for the best.

I hope the young man will take to the treatment well, and emerge stronger.

Why don't people realise that the unhappiness and frustrations at work/home and with one another are but a waste of precious time in our brief sojourn in this world?

Half the year is gone!

The days are whizzing by, dear Self.

Take time to smell the roses, learn from the kitties!
