Grow old with you..

I was staying with my parents, when I adopted Kitty.

Back then, the rescuers were trying to get Kitty adopted, and I felt the pressure to give him a home.. I wanted to tell my parents I was bringing him home, but I didn’t.. My parent would violently object, if they knew what was coming.

Once my parents found out my secret, they got mad.. My mother went mental(imagine the Incredible Hulk). There were alot of screaming and tension.. They demanded I return Kitty back to the rescuers, but I insisted on keeping him.

My parents are superstitious, and they believe in some health myths too. Here’s some of the reasons why they are against keeping cats as pets.

  1. Cats are dirty, they don’t bathe… I guess it’s true for village cats, but not urban cats.
  2. The fur of cats can cause asthma– they believe asthma happens, when the fur is inhaled.
  3. It’s a BLACK cat! Black is such an unlucky color!
  4. Friday the 13th– my father said when Jesus was crucified, a black cat crossed His path while He was on the way to Calvary.. Hence, it’s cursed to have a black cat cross your path on Friday the 13th. Not sure where my father heard that, I’m quite surprised he actually believe in that story! 😮

One Friday the 13th, my father avoided Kitty. Most of the day, he would stay in his room.. If he needed to go to the kitchen, he would ensure the coast was clear (of Kitty), and make a beeline from the feline.. It was pretty comical to watch. Sorry Pa. 😛

I don’t care what others say, I just want to grow old with you.

Despite what my parents thought, I still love them.. I didn’t want to return Kitty to the rescuer, because I felt a special connection with him. So I quietly endured my parents’ scoldings; hoping and praying someday my parents will accept my cat.

Days turned to weeks… weeks turned to months..

My parents eventually got to know my cat, and they realized the myths aren’t true..(Although my father still get a little nervous on Friday the 13th). My parents love Kitty and they see him as part of the family.

On hindsight, I wouldn’t recommend anyone to do what I’ve done- it was very selfish and inconsiderate.. it was understandable why my parents were upset. Things could have turn out much worse, and I’m glad it didn’t. I’m extremely relieved and thankful for this outcome; all the hardships and heartaches are worth it.

Even though Kitty is just a cat, he is a blessing in my life. Together, I want to fill up the future pages of Life with him.

Watching over me..

I used to blog late at night.

Things changed after we moved in with my Father-in-law.

One evening as I was typing, the wind started howling… the doors creaked.. and I heard footsteps.. The thought of my late mother-in-law dropping in for a “visit” petrified me.. Quickly, I whispered a prayer and went to bed.

Since then, I blogged in the afternoons.. It wasn’t solely because of that incident, it was partly because staying up was disruptive to Kitty’s sleeping patterns- he would only sleep when I’m done, much to our dismay.

In the afternoons, Kitty would be sitting in a corner watching me blog, taking a nap, or secretly plotting to destroy my laptop. 😛

At the entrance of the room.. Now you see me, now you don’t.

He is my go to friend, when I’m taking breaks between my stuff. The work colleague that you always hangout with? Yea, Kitty has become that person. 😉

When I’m stuck in a blogging rut, I would paced around the house for ideas. There he would be, watching me silently from the corners of the house.

Hello! From the entrance of another room..

From conception of an idea to completion of a post, Kitty is my witness throughout the process. In many ways, he is my inspiration. 🙂

He is always there watching over me..

.. or is there another?

Ps: Sorry for the absence. I was down with nasty gastroenteritis.. and it took time to get well. Hoping to get back to the routine!

Furever in Season

Hi Humans,

Today, I would like to share with you some fashion tips.. These tips will guarantee you to be fashion forward in any season.

1) Wear black

One of the classic colors of all time; it is very important to own black suit or dress. Black is classy and figure flattering, and it makes anyfurrybody look timeless.

It’s also a smart choice of color.. May it be color or black and white photography, you’ll still look purrfect! Your fashion statement will not go unnoticed.

Fads may come and go, but black is furever.

2) Smile

Smile with your lips and with your eyes too.. Most importantly, smile with your heart. 🙂

Did I make your heart melt?

See, a smile never goes out of fashion.

3) Strike a pose

You are dressed in black, and you’ve your best smile.. What’s next?

Update your body language- strike a pose!

Cross your paws and pose.. you will be ready for the Mamarazzi.

Anyfurrybody can wear a black outfit. Only wearers with the right poses can transform an average clothing into a fashion statement.

Your attitude gives life and personality to the clothes on your body.

Some poses that worked for me are- seating in a box, clawing the scratching post, meditating on the bed.. Keep posing until you find your purrfect pose.

If in doubt, close your eyes and just do it.

Hope you enjoyed my fashion tips!

Kitty’s forbidden area..

Dear Humans Friends,

Recently, Mummy told me I shouldn’t be Gramps room.. she has zoned it a “Forbidden area”.

But the more Mummy disallows me to enter, the more I want to go.

“Why can’t I enter the room? What is inside? Is Mama hiding a secret from me?”

I’ve many questions, but no answers to them..

.. an insatiable curiosity bubbles inside me.

The only way to find out, is to enter the Forbidden area..

.. I will not stop until I find out what’s inside the room.

Shh! Don’t tell Mummy and Gramps!

Lots of Meows and Kibbles,

Kitty

Eyes on the prize..

It was a hot and humid afternoon.

Kitty was sprawled on the bed, taking his usual afternoon nap.

“What a perfect opportunity to take pictures of him,” I thought. As soon as I whipped out the camera, Kitty woke up..

“Who dares to awake me from my slumber?”

The death stare.. Anyone who incurs his wrath will be executed. Luckily for me, I’ve been spared from that dreadful fate. The King still needs his humble servant to prepare his daily meals.

I didn’t go empty handed. With trembling hands, my peace offering was presented.

Things took a turn for the better.. (His eyes was on the prize!)

The treat caught his undivided attention!  Upon seeing it, Lord Grouchy completely forgotten what happened moments ago.

My offering was devoured with satisfaction.. Even though no praises was given, I shall not murmur under my breath.

Cat treats are my saving grace.. because of them, I get to live another day in peace.

Kitty’s sweet victory..

Kitty loves to curl up on Blueberry’s blanket.

One evening, Blueberry left his blanket on the side of the bed. Sensing a good opportunity, Kitty leaps unto the bed silently and made his claim on the unattended blanket.

Soon after, he drifted off to sleep.

Far away in dreamland..

When we saw Kitty, he was fast asleep.. we tried waking him, but he refused to budge. Sigh!

I think our boy scored a sweet victory. 🙂

Kitty’s bath time

There is a handful of things to do, when you have a cat.

Feeding, trimming the nails, changing the litter, playtime and bath time.. I enjoy doing everything for Kitty, especially giving him a bath.

Water. Soap. Bubbles. Scrub. Wash. Lets get you clean and fresh again. Soak. Lather. Rinse. Dry. Comb.

Bath times are special.. the fortnightly baths helped me and Kitty form a closer bond together.

Kitty doesn’t adore taking baths, but he doesn’t hate it with a passion either. He is more cooperative, when the water is nice and hot.

(I guess we both share the same pet peeve for lukewarm baths/showers.. 🙂 )

My cool cat.. Kitty is calm and collected, even in the bath. Ps: I prepared the usual bubble bath for him, but the studs disappeared as soon as Kitty was put in the sink.

After a few pictures, I put the camera away quickly.

It was time for a final rinse.

Thank you for showing me how wonderful bath time can be, Kitty!

My sleepy Kitty..

It was a hot and humid afternoon.

Tucked in a corner of the bedroom, Kitty was fast asleep on his tower.

Fast asleep, Kitty looked serene, peaceful and adorable. While he snoozed, I admired his facial features. Kitty's fine whiskers, tiny nose, tightly shut eyes and "botak" (bald) eyebrows.. He looked so cute! I had to restrain myself from giving him a squeeze! :D

As I took a handful of pictures from different angles, Kitty woke up.. The sound from the camera shutter must have woken him.

“What are you doing, Mummy?” he blinked sleepy at me.

I didn’t want to startle him, so I pretended I was taking selfies.. Lol. Kitty didn’t like to be photographed while sleeping (he would either move to another spot or meow in protest, if he realised what happened).

Not sensing anything amiss, Kitty buried his head into the fleece blanket and went back to sleep. Phew!

In “stealth” mode, I carried on taking close up shots until there was a sudden toss in his bed.

Hrrrgh! Annoyed and trying to sleep in peace.. the sound from the camera is getting on his nerves.

Ops.. so much for “stealth” mode… 😥

I took a last picture, before Kitty awakens with rage.

Wait, where did the props go?

Where the treasure is, there your heart will be

Yesterday, I was taking pictures of Kitty’s favourite treats.

While waiting for good picture, our photography session was interrupted by an intruder..

Within seconds, my props vanished into thin air..

Our “party crasher” ate all the treats.

My session was forced to end abruptly. Lol.

My jealous little kitty..

Let’s talk about Kitty today.

From time to time, Kitty gets annoyed when I give something else more attention than him.

Kitty was sitting on my pillow and I seized the chance to take a selfie. Look at his face! He looks like he's plotting to destroy my phone.

The death stare I woke up to. On the morning of my birthday, I decided to sleep in. Kitty wasn't happy about it.. he came and woke me up. According to Kitty, spending too much time in bed is prohibited.

When I was doing a photoshoot for the Weekly photo challenge, Kitty came and sat on the white background.. I couldn't use it because it was crumpled. The culprit quickly walked away before I could snap a picture of his face.

Chill that jealous streak, Kitty!

No matter what you think of me, I will never stop loving you.. 🙂

I LOVE you to bits!
