Stretch target

This is how you can occupy two seats with a stretch :)

Take it easy

I think we should learn from the slackers and take life easy.

The recent episode of the fall and hospitalization has reminded me that no one is indispensable and life goes on, no matter what.

So don't kill yourself at work. Set aside time to do the things that matter to you most, take care of your health and love the people (and kitties) around you.

Sizzling Sunday

It's such a hot day and the kitties are finding it hard to stay awake!

I should be going back to work on Tuesday, depending on doctor's review tomorrow. The back is still tender and somewhat achy, it'll take a couple more weeks to recover completely :(

Milo is forever waiting next to the sink, hoping that we will let the tap run so that he can slurp water straight from the faucet :)

On the way to recovery

I am making good progress in recovery, am now able to get in and out of bed without assistance. Also can walk in a normal posture now, albeit rather slowly.

Kootoo and Muffy tend to get in my way, and sometimes I just have to stand still and let them rub my legs :)

Mama cat kept me company when I took an afternoon nap yesterday :)

Out of action

Sorry for the long silence. Have been out of action - was hospitalised for eight days after a bad fall at home last Wednesday.

Got home yesterday - missed the kitties much, but unfortunately they were spooked by me. I was shuffling around the house with difficulty like an old woman. But they've seen gotten used to me.

Here's a pix of Kootoo in the fruit basket which the company sent me.

My desk

Colleagues find the wallpaper on my PC desktop scary.

Scary meh?

Two tubs are better than one

Now that we have two basins, the Tubbies can have their own tubs instead of fighting over tub space :D

New tub!

We got this cheerful blue basin from the Toyogo warehouse at Toa Payoh Lor 8.

As you can see, Kootoo the tubby loves it.

Chummy chummy!

Papa Porky caught Mama and Milo lounging together in close proximity for the first time! :D

And busybody Kootoo is wondering whether he should spoil the fun :)

Flu-ed out

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

A virulent flu bug hit me on Sunday, and I'm completely flu-ed out. Been at home 'resting' (read=working from home) for two days now, and even without taking the meds I am as comatose as can be, like the kitties.

Cosy up

Muffy loves to get cosy with Kootoo but the latter always finds himself squeezed out of sleeping space. Ah well, they say love is sharing, ain't it?

Family dispute

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

What happens when a cat-fight threatens to spoil the afternoon peace and quietude?

Fight for turf.

And who will intervene?

Not Muffy.

Muffy: When things are about to turn ugly - act busy, for example, groom yourself silly.

Not Milo either.

Milo practising Sun Tzu's Art of War Rule #5780: When two biggies fight, minions should pretend to be asleep!

Of course Mama Piggy had to be the peacemaker by carrying Kootoo away and soothe his Highness' ruffled fur.

Kootoo: But it's her fault what! She occupied my favourite snoozing place, which is just about anywhere in this house! *sulks*

We're back!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

We apologise for the lack of updates for the past month.

Blame it on the ISP. Singnet did something to our connection LAN/proxy settings without our knowledge and which resulted in me not being able to access Blogger. After trawling through the forums, I managed to resolve the issue but Singnet continues to reset my connection settings (damn you Singnet!).

Anyway, we're back in business!

You would have noticed by now the new masthead featuring gorgeous Mama. She's blossomed into a bui bui :P

While Kootoo and Muffin continue their love-hate relationship ...

And Milo remains the sweet, innocent boy that he is.

Take care and we hope to post more updates soon!

Wakey wakey!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Yes, I have been jolted out of my long slumber!

I wish! Have been so busy on the work front that I have ignored this blog for NEARLY TWO MONTHS?!?

And no, Calsifer, Milo is no van Winkle! :)

Am blogging now because I am still wide-eyed after doing the night shift. And since I am on forced day-off tomorrow, I guess I could stay up for a while more ...

Things are a-okay with the KMMM. Kootoo and Muffy are still chasing poor Mama around the house, and Milo and his Ma are not chummy ... yet. I am ever an optimist!

Work is keeping me very busy. At the rate I am going I will get burnt out very soon but the break is no where in sight!!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

More on what we cat slaves subject ourselves to.

Nothing gets between a man and his cat. Not even his favourite computer game :)

Even the keyboard has to make way!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Okay okay, here's a handsome photo of Kootoo Monster, to redeem myself for posting a most unflattering pix of him earlier on.

All you Kootoo fans out there, stop droolling :)

Thursday, May 07, 2009


From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Yes he is.

Okay, I know the angle is not very flattering!

Kootoo occupies the entire coffeetable when fully stretched out, leaving us with little space for our things.

Sometimes I even clear the coffeetable so that Kootoo can lie on it comfortably with no obstruction. The true tale of a cat slave!

She's beautiful

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Oh well, thanks to a two-day medical leave, I am able to capture some lovely images of Mama cat :)

Five months ago she's nobody's cat - scrounging a living at the void deck, battling cat flu and looking for love.

With some TLC and good diet, look at what this beautiful girl has transformed into. Very huggable eh? :)

Mum's the word

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Hello hello, I am back :P Apologies for the lack of postings recently. It's been crazy at work - from Killer Rojak to Aware to H1N1. No breather at all. And it doesn't help that I have been down with a swine of a flu bug which gave me an incredible sorethroat and tear-inducing coughing fits. Not to mention that my voice is almost gone.

Here's an update on Mama cat. She really needs to watch her weight. She doesn't really eat a lot, but she's piling on the pounds like nobody's business in the short 5 months she's been with us.

She is positively round! Not a very flattering back view, is it?

Mama: Are YOU calling me FAT? *squints eyes in consternation*

I guess it's the lack of "sporting activity" such as running after birds and running away from unfriendly humans at the void deck that's contributing to her expanding girth. The only "exercise" she does about the house is scampering away from Kootoo, who goes after her when he's in a frisky mood.

Mama: I am an all-rounder!

She could do with some advice on how to regain her hour-glass figure :)

Slackers ...

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

... us!

Yes, we hear you (especially Calsifer), we have been rather slack in posting updates on the KMMM these couple of months. Hmmm, for lack of a better excuse, we have been busy with work.

Well, with the mandatory alternate Friday off the company is implementing with effect from April, I guess I should have more time on hand to snap pixs of the KMMM and clear the cobwebs on the blog ;)

Anyways, thanks to all for your funny caption contributions - we have received *drum roll* 37 entries!!! We'll round it up to 40 and make a $200 contribution to Metta Cattery. Thanks all! I had a good laugh reading the entries :)

Caption this

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

For every quirky entry, we will donate $5 to Metta Cattery :)

So what are you waiting for?

Have fun, do good!

Mama's video

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Here it is!!!

Today marks the third month of Mama's stay with us! And she is definitely piling on the pounds. Her belly used to be trim and without an extra inch of fat, but now it's rotund and wobbly!

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Kootoo Monster demonstrating the art of sulking.

Yes, am miffed :( You would be too, if you were me.

I had nearly finished a video clip of Mama cat when Windows Movie Maker decided to go nuts. The video sequence is now corrupted, and I HAVE TO EDIT FROM SCRATCH!!! MEOOWWWRRR!!

Not chums yet, these two, but getting there :)

Mama looking on as her silly boy amuses himself with a cat toy.

This cat toy comes in a pack of 2 for $2, available at Daiso.

Belated birthday wishes

From the desk of Mama Piggy:

Happy belated birthday to Kootoo, who turned 4 on 27 Jan!

And happy birthday to XY too, who turned ?? on the same day :) Thanks for the reminder, I had forgotten about it!

Not that Kootoo would mind, he pretty much slept through his birthday! :P
