Furry Babies

From the desk of Mama Piggy:



The trio have put on some weight and are vaccinated and dewormed.

The kitten with the pink collar is, of course, Meeks, the only girl in the litter.

Operation Fattening Up

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

We visited Brownie and Scout at Vincent's shelter on Sunday afternoon.



Scout the cutie is simply adorable, he makes a good, placid lap cat.



Brownie needs to be fattened up before we send her for sterilisation. Vincent says she is eating well, and a health check at Pet Clinic showed that she is in good health.

Senor Achiwawa and his sister have very kindly offered to take care of Brownie and Scout while we look for suitable adopters.

Pei Pei adopted!!!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

I am on cloud nine!! Yes I am, because Pei Pei has found a home!




S. and her friend visited Phyllis' cattery on Saturday evening and were so smitten by Pei Pei's adorable nature that they decided to bring her home to be the companion of their other kitten.

Vegancat, who was at the cattery, took this video of Pei Pei leaving the cattery with her new found "parents".





I also pointed the adopter to Tipped Ear Clan to read up on how to introduce a new kitty to the resident cat.


Be good, Pei Pei!! :)

Rock-a-bye baby

From the desk of Mama Piggy:



In case you are wondering, the kitties NEVER sleep in this hammock!

Doe, Ray and Meeks

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

I've gotta put up the adoption notices for the trio soon. They are getting too adorable!

Doe (on top, with a darker cream coat and a bob tail) and Ray are two brothers with a mischievous streak.


The duo always bully their dear sister Meeks, who is a sweet angel.


We hope that the potential adopter can consider adopting all 3 kittens, or at least 2 of them, together. My sister would keep the other one that is not adopted.

From the desk of Mama Piggy:




Thanks to Vegancat, who sent me this lovely "music video" of Pei Pei! She looks tubby!!


When will that special someone bring me home?

Bad Hair Day

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Kootoo is shedding heaps.



A grooming session at home produced three times the amount of fur shown in the picture.

He also sports a small balding patch at his right hind leg, and has been nibbling there quite a bit. I will monitor it to see if it gets worse.

Kitties Galore

The three kittens are doing well, eating voraciously and playing like little monsters in the making :)

The kitten that is being "mauled" in the video is the only girl in the litter, she is rather shy while her two brothers are very active and mischievous.

Sister act

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

My sister has also gone into the business of catnapping, it seems.



She found this bundle of hapless kittens at the void deck, and with no mother cat in sight, she decided to bring them home and foster them until they are old enough for adoption.

About one-month-old, they have a unique light orange coat.

Skivers

From the desk of Mama Piggy:



Mention "spring-cleaning" and the skivers immediately dive under the sheets. Shufferin' Succhotash!

Lazy bums

Poster boy ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:



... for generally good behaviour.


But I wish Milo had more "balls" though. When the doorbell rings, he is usually the first to scoot off and hide under the sofa or morph into a lump under the sheets.

Catnapped!

From the desk of Catnapper Mama Piggy:

Oops, I did it again.

I took time-off from work (!!) and came back home to "trap" the abandoned Calico Mommy & Tabby Boy. When I got back, they were still snoozing on top of the disposed sofa! Had to gently prod Calico Mommy into the carrier, while Tabby Boy, who just woke up from a nap, was putty in my hands.

They will be sent for vaccination this evening at Pet Clinic before heading for the shelter at Vincent's place.

I shall call them Brownie (Calico Mommy) and Scout (Tabby Boy).


Brownie is on the skinny side, she will be a beauty once she fattens up.


Scout practising the "Take me home" look. Awww ...

They would be put up for adoption once Brownie is sterilised.

Where is your conscience?

From the desk of incensed Mama Piggy:

Yes indeed, I am incensed.

Guess what I found on my way home this evening?


Tabby boy resembles Gym-Mee, no?

Yes, two more abandoned cats in my estate - a Calico mommy with her 3-month-old white and grey tabby boy.

I didn't notice them at first. I was walking through the nicely landscaped garden which leads to my flat when something "prompted" me to turn my head. I saw a pile of furniture at the void deck of a nearby block, discarded to make way for new ones in time for the lunar new year. Then I saw a bundle of white and black furry things on top of the unwanted sofa. With four pointed ears. Rats.

They are obviously abandoned home cats because they are very friendly, and Calico mommy still had a chain collar with a bell.


Someone also left some "farewell" food for them, it seems. Calico mommy allowed me to stroke her, and boy, is she skinny! I fed her some biscuits, and went home to get a can of wet food for her and tabby boy.
Why were they thrown out together with the old furniture? Because they would "damage" the new sofa? Or is it because their "shelf-life" is over?

I left them at the void deck and went home with a heavy heart.


If you love someone, would you abandon them?

Pei Pei's adoption notice

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

It's up on the
Cat Welfare Society adoption bulletin board!



Will you open your heart to this sweet little girl?

Get off my back!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:




As if it is not bad enough that Kootoo sometimes usurp his favourite snoozing spot, Muffin now has to contend with Milo snuggling up for a cosy siesta.
