Still comatosed

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

The excitement over the visit by Calsifer and btmao this afternoon "disrupted" the usual nap time of the kitties, who promptly fell into a deep slumber after the guests left for home.

It will be a silent night for us as the kitties catch up on their beauty sleep :)

Calsifer and btmao paid a visit

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

The House of Pigs and the KMM gang were honoured to have the chieftains of the Tipped Ear Clan over for tea today.

btmao's pokey-meter cannot get the blubber reading from Kootoo.

We are happy to hear that Kootoo is no match for the likes of Rheilly or Philly in blubber-o-meter reading ;)

Calsifer and btmao had a fleeting look at Milo, who then hid under the sofa for the whole afternoon. Here's a nice pix of the shy boy who finally emerged one hour after the sisters left.

Muffin the spitfire took a while to warm up to the guests, and still hissed, not once but twice, when btmao tried to get cosy with him.

Calsifer - you still owe us a pedicure session with Muffin! Never mind about the bath! :P

Age ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... is really catching up with us. It used to be that we can polish off loads of junk food without feeling stuffed. But these days, we eat like a bird and still end up with a bloated tummy.

Kootoo: I can't reach the remote. The stomach is in the way ...

One of life's ironies, I guess. When you are young, you'd like to indulge in good food but you have no munny. When you are older and earning good munny, your tummy cannot take it anymore ...

Far from the madding crowd

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Tis' the season to get far far away from the madding crowd in the malls.

I don't understand why people like to "soak up the atmosphere" and get themselves crushed among the shopping crowd.

Me, I like to chill at home -- do a bit of reading, listen to music and enjoy the company of my kitties.

That, is bliss.

Little Star

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Does this kitten remind you of someone??

Twinkle twinkle, Little Star!

Yes, this is Twinkle's younger brother -- Little Star! Senor Achiwawa rescued the emaciated Little Star from his estate and boarded him at Phyllis' cattery where he is being nursed back to health.

Putty in my arms :)

Little Star is an agouti tabby with a lovely ticked coat.

Meanwhile, our friend Twinkle has become a Princeling of sorts, and gets to sleep with Mei-mei and a few other kitties.

Twinkle looking smug in the arms of his Guardian Angel, Mei-mei.

Twinkle must really thank his lucky stars!

A Purrfect Companion

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

In ancient China, the Emperor has a 书童 or study companion who would assist His Royal Highness in getting the ink and brush ready, fetch his books, be the whipping boy, etc etc etc.

In modern day Singapore, Papa Porky has a 茅童 or toilet companion who would keep His Royal Porkers company while he sits on the throne :)

Milo: Geez, the smell can kill a thousand flies!

Da Bird

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

The KMM gang love bird watching at our bedroom window, but recently the birds have stopped visiting, seasonal migration mayhaps?

So we got this bird from Exim Arts for $2.50, and secured it outside our bedroom window to keep the kitties entertained.

Kootoo: I thought I saw a tweety bird! It ees, it ees a tweety bird!

Kootoo: Oh those damn window panes!

Milo: Won't you come on in, little birdie?

Cheep thrill, did you say? :P

Visit to cattery

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

We popped by the cattery this afternoon, it was nice to bump into Vegancat and ChaosCat there!

Our little friend Twinkle is totally living it up at the cattery.

Twinkle: Snzzz ...

Bleary-eyed Twinkle: Oh hi!

He is totally spoilt by Phyllis and her helpers, and even gets to sleep on Mei Mei's bed!

Twinkle: What to do? I am sooooo adorable!

Papa Porky was pleasantly surprised by this sweet ginger boy when it jumped onto his lap for cuddles. (Papa Porky has always complained that the trio at home NEVER do nice things like this.)

I found out subsequently from Mei Mei that this ginger cat is Goldie. He is truly lovable and pliant, hope he finds a good home soon ...
