Busy day

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Tiny Twinkle is now boarded at Phyllis' cattery, where he'll receive tender loving care.

The feisty boy walloped a whole plate of boiled chicken at the cattery.

Senor Achiwawa and his sister also brought Brownie and Scout to Pet Clinic for their second booster jab.

They have done a great job fattening up Brownie, who now weighs in at 3.65kg. She will be sterilised soon.

Little Scout has grown into a big furball!

He was a bit anxious while waiting for his turn at the vet, check out the video :P

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Cat-napping is infectious, it seems.

Our friend Senor Achiwawa and his sister have catnapped a scrawny 3-month-old tabby boy from their Marine Parade estate.

Tabby boy is malnourished and is suffering from a bout of diarrhoea. He's now boarded at Pet Clinic for observation and will be put up for adoption once he's in a better shape.

We've decided to call him Twinkle. He's skin and bones now, but with tender loving care, he should blossom into a beautiful cat.

Senor Achiwawa says Twinkle (top) resembles Kootoo the kitten (below), what do you think?

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

T'was a cold and lazy afternoon.

Papa Porky decided to steal 40 winks on the couch.

The kitties wanted to get cosy too.

Kootoo, for some strange reason I can't fathom, chose the "smelly" end, with his nose pointed in the "right" direction.

Doe and Ray settles in

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

L & K, the new "parents" of Doe and Ray, sent me these lovely pictures of the duo settling into their new home.

An SMS update on the kitties:

"The kittens are fine. Doe eats a lot while Ray is very playful. Doe always pushes Ray out of the food dish. They poo a lot too!"

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

It's been almost a year since Muffin came into our life.

Sometimes when I look back, I do wonder why I adopted him instead of the many other kittens and cats that were available at Phyllis' cattery. Afterall, the poor fella had been abused and was emotionally scarred. I guess we just wanted to give him the love that he deserved, and to make up for the suffering he endured under the hands of my fellow human beings.

Muffin was and still is wary of us handling him, but he has his moments when he would approach us for cuddles. He may not be as sweet as Kootoo or Milo, but he is still our Muffin.

Out with the old ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... and into the new!

Muffin has ditched his old favourite cushion for the new cat bed, especially when the air-conditioner is on full blast.

It makes for a furry comfy snooze.

Pei Pei la prima donna

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

A lovely update from Pei Pei's adopters, S. and her housemate. Pei Pei has been introduced to their resident tabby, Curio.

Excerpts from our email exchange:

"Things are quite fine, though I do hope they'll get along 'better'. We're thinking that they'll still need some time to get used to each other. Curio is a darling and has been so patient with her. He's quite the sweetheart and always meows to be near her when we separate them.

She, on the other hand, is quite mischievous! She's a bit aggressive still, and is more hot-tempered around him and us, she doesnt allow any of us to touch or carry her! But she has shown some signs of improvements, don't worry. Over the days, we see her playing more with Curio and fighting less, and we take that to be quite a positive sign.

Usually after they fight, they each claim a chair under the dining table and take a nap.

Pei Pei really is so pretty. She's acting every bit the high Majesty she looks like, with all her tantrums and poses. Hehe."

Furry nice bed

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

The kitties have not warmed up to it yet cos it smells new, but I am sure in no time they would be fighting to sleep in it.

Food for thought

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

My yummy, animal-friendly lunch.

I have overheard this question many times while buying my meals at vegetarian food stalls.

“What meat is this ah?” The man pointed to the mock pork ribs.

It never fails to tickle the funny bone in me. No offence to those who ask this question, but does it really matter what “meat” it is? I mean, surely you come knowingly to a vegetarian stall and you know everything there is like, NON meat?

I can only conclude that those who ask this question want to know what it would taste like. But a more suitable question would be, "What dish is this?" Agree?

Kungfu fighting

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

This is a sampler of what happens at the House of Pigs every day.

Sampler because it is not the full works -- somehow when I shoved the camera in their faces when they are fighting, the cats become very “pai seh” and call it quits.

Milo's video

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

This is a self-indulgent video on Milo's growing up years. Yes, another of those awww-inducing, saccharine-sweet, reminiscence piece ... I promise to catch the trio in a brawl and put it up on Youtube, lest you think that the critters are all so well behaved and polite to a T.

Speaking of which, Milo the abominable cat very nearly ruined this video project by using the laptop keyboard as a launchpad while chasing Kootoo. Had half a mind to hold him by the scruff and give him a hard twack on the rump. Of course I didn't. Duh.

Brownie & Scout update

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Here's an update from foster family on Brownie & Scout.

"Hello, one week on, the kitties are doing well. Eating a hell lot and pooping a lot. Scout's a nice boy and is becoming a big furball since he eats and eats! Brownie is a bit of a lap cat actually... sweet tempered."

Lapping it up

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

This is a video of Milo drinking water from the tap.

Whenever we go to the kitchen or toilet, he would jump into the basin and implore us to turn on the tap for him until he gets his fill.

Feeding Frenzy - Remix version!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Here's a redux of an earlier video - with supers and a cheerful soundtrack.

Explanatory note: I had to hide in the kitchen toilet to prepare the wet food for the kitties -_- they go crazy at the mere sound of me opening the cans.
