Book review

Book title: Your Cat (The Boss)
Author: Helen Exley
Retail: $11.90, at gift stores island wide
Reviewer: Kootoo Monster

A must-read for any self-respecting cat "owner" *snigger*, this wonderful collection of 191 quirky and thought-provoking quotations about cats serves to dispel any doubt/misgiving/quandry you may have in your relationship with cats.

It provides the answer and more to cryptical questions such as "Why a cat?".

An example of an enlightening quote: "Being adopted by a stray cat is a sign that you are a kind, generous, warm-hearted sucker. ~Giovanni Andretti"

Here's another: "You can tell a dog to do something. You can put it to a cat as a reasonable propositon. ~ Michael Steven"

Dubbed the "Chicken Soup for the wretched cat slave's soul", the book helps you get in touch with your inner minion as you begin to realise and appreciate the sense of purpose and meaning your cat has bestowed on you.

Get your copy now, and your cat will be eternally grateful to you and stop chewing your shoelaces/pissing in your house plant.

I shall leave you with my favorite quote from the book:"There is a weary expression on your cat's face when she brings you home a mouse. It needs no words: 'Is this idiot woman never going to catch her own?' ~ Pam Brown"

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Lovely toesicles! Look yummy enought to eat, no?

Oooh, the owner of the toesicles is not too happy that I disturbed his beauty sleep and is giving me one of his looks!

Be afraid, be very afraid!

Mama Piggy has come full circle

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

The cat is out of the bag, or box, whatever...

Yes, I have decided to return to Caldecott Hill. (No, Mama Piggy is not a celebrity lah, in case anyone is wondering! ^_^)

I left the newsroom in 2002, and have been a spin doctor since. It was quite a natural progression for most media professionals to cross over to the dark side of Public Relations, so to speak. But deep down, I know my heart is still with journalism. And six years of handling the media only served to stoke the fire in the belly.

So, come end July, it's goodbye Shenton Way, and hello Caldecott Hill!

My friends think that I am out of my mind to forsake the current job which has decent pay, relatively sane and regular hours and good prospects.

Well, I don't care. The heart won the battle this time round :)

Ugly ducklings

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Well well, you can't judge a book by its covers, and you certainly can't judge a cat by its colours!

Like in the fairy tale, these "ugly ducklings" have blossomed into beautful adult cats, with loving personalities.

Handsome lad

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Cappuccino (of the Fantastic Four gang) has grown into a handsome lad, and a super-endearing one to boot.

Why don't nice kitties like Cappy find us? All we have are three ingrates! Maybe I should send the KMM to bootcamp ...

Closet case

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Milo: Talk to the paw. Aint no one coming in to Milo's Cave...

These days, we can never leave our closet doors open without Milo jumping in and making himself comfortable among Papa Porky's t-shirts and shorts.

Papa Porky commented that Kootoo looks like a 乌龟 (turtle) when he squats like this =_=
