Street cred ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... she haz it!

Mama proved that she is no pushover.

Although she is somewhat apprehensive of Kootoo (I think she knows the pecking order), she can stand up to him if he gets too pesky.

Mama has also gone after Muffy when she's in a frisky mood.

As for her sonny Milo, she switches between wanting to play with him and wanting to "toughen" him up like a gangsta =_=

But blood is thicker than water. Milo is always hanging around near Mama and even going up to sniff her. But I don't know why Mama seems to be rather spooked whenever Milo gets too close. Give them some time, I suppose.

In the meantime, Mama's sniffles is not going away :( Her nose is still runny, but I don't really want to put her on anti-biotics again. She had finished two courses. We will monitor and bring to the vet if need be.

Pain in the butt ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... is Kootoo.

Kootoo: Me a pain in the butt?? Whose butt?

First he decided to chase after Mama cat, after realising that she is very mild and sweet-natured. He would spring into a run and spook Mama, who was scared into retreating into her cage. So I had to use some very stern words on Kootoo, plus brandish my bedroom slipper. That had some effect on him, he started behaving himself after deciding that it would be foolish to cross me =_=

Then Kootoo decided that he will use Mama's litter bin. And make a mess out of it. I know he is trying to assert his dominance, but some toilet manners would be appreciated!

Another pain - Muffy the Growler. A lot of posturing and growling from him since Mama started exploring the house.

Muffin: See me crossed paws? They stand for "No to Newbies!"

I think he deserves a good smack from Mama :)

Mama gets comfy ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Mama cat is feeling better, and today she did a grand tour of the house.

She spent a long time sniffing out everything - the standing fan, electrical cords, table legs, the kitty condo etc.

Mama is sooooo lovely!

Mama certainly knows how to seek out the most comfy places - within minutes of exploring our bedroom she was rolling on the quilt! :) Must be quite intriguing for her to lie on something so soft and warm.

I seriously think she remembers her sonny Milo. She miaowed at him so ever gently, and even tried to go near him several times. Alas, the ingrate does not want her company. The good thing is he allows Mama to get within arm's length. Of course he hissed at her ...

Will you wake up to your senses soon, Milo Boy???

Mama meets the gang

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

I took half day's leave this morning to bring Mama to the vet. Her sniffles came back yesterday :( Her condition had improved over the weekend and her eyes and nose were clear and dry. She had completed her course of anti-biotics so I was perturbed that she can't seem to shake off the flu.

While at the vet, I decided to get her tested for FIV and FELV too. The results were negative :)

Cost of vet visit (inclusive of cab fares) - $120
Peace of mind - Priceless ;P

I had introduced Mama to the gang over the weekend.

Auntie P, you're spot on! Mama might just become the queen of the household as Kootoo was actually a bit afraid of her! Papa Porky observed that Kootoo wanted to be friends with Mama cat, but didn't seem to know how to go about doing it. So when he got too upclose with Mama, he received a swipe and a hiss :D But at least Kootoo has accepted her presence in the house, the two of them lounge together in a relaxed manner.

KXBC, you're right too. Milo the Ingrate didn't recognise his Mama at all. But the good thing is he is curious about her, although he is somewhat scaredy. I wonder if Mama recognised Milo, she miaowed a few times at him in a friendly manner ... But the ingrate would stare at Mama from the kitchen doorway for a few seconds before slinking away ...

As for Muffy, what can I say? : Still paranoid and hissy.
