He said that stray cats are able to live on their own. And if they were to be back on the streets, they would be grateful that for whatever time we have kept them, they had a home.
Now, is that what most people think when they abandon their cats? That they are stray cats by blood, and thus able to take care of themselves, navigate the traffic, defend themselves against stray dogs... etc. And that by keeping them for a week, a month, and then letting them go, that is doing a good deed?
I feel so demoralised after that conversation with my father.

With heavy heart, I would like to announce a death in the fuzzy babies family.
Lobbie wasn't fuzzy. He was a really cute and healthy lobster. (technically, it is a crayfish). He religiously eat up the algae in his tank, and spends his day sitting on his log, finding blood worms to eat.
Last night, Lobbie decided to be adventurous. He climbed out of the tank through the air pump tube. After that he climbed across the table and fell on the floor. Doggie_honey found him... and... Lobbie... migrated to Lobster heaven. I found him in Doggie_honey's toys this morning. Among the teddy bears, I found Lobbie. He looked ok, I put him back into the water, hoping for a miracle, but it was not to be.
The lid was on. I really don't understand how Lobbie could have escaped. I think I will not have another lobster again. I shall bury Lobbie tonight.
Rest in peace, Lobbie. I am sorry. You were a good lobster. :(

Doll is now Premier Nicsha Sheza Doll! Premier at her first Singapore show! Yeay yeay yeay yeay! She is such a show-off cat.. other cats stay IN the cage, she sits ON TOP of the cage! Oh well... hahaha...
Overall, the results are quite good. She was 2nd best, 3rd best, 4th best and 7th best for the 4 rings respectively. Not bad at all, considering she is in her summer coat! Yeay yeay yeay! Well done, Doll!

The sweet thing was, the cars to his front, left, right and back all stopped and the drivers came out to check if the motorcyclist is ok. The cars formed a protective ring around the fallen man. The scene brought warmth to my heart. Maybe the world is not as bad as I thought it is.
There is still kindness . :)

It is not easy to get over death. When Feodora died, I wanted to give up all my cats, because I didn't think I could invest my love and experience another loss again. I am so glad that I didn't. Taking care of my babies was actually part of the grieving process, but Phyllis has to handle this so often. In many cases, the cats/kittens were abused and they suffer such pain. How Phyllis can have the strength to handle all these, plus to shoulder all the paramount vet fees is beyond me. She has my utmost respect.

Went over to my friend's hostel room to have a look at her new found kitten. OMG! It is soooo uber cute lor! It has a really cute tail. I brought over my birman Doll, and he was all puffed up, trying to act aggressive! The tail was like a brush! Hahaha... it was so so funny. Doll is so much bigger than him. Tiny fearless boy! ahhahaa... the bigger ginger is the handsome loki! i wish Baby can be more masculine, like loki. Hmmm...
I can't help gushing over him... what a cute baby... really want to bring him home. BUt.... oh well....
He is really clever. He knows how to find the litter box automatically. He also suckles Loki. kekekekeke....
He will be up for adoption soon I think. Please spread the words. This cutie really deserves a good home.
All photos copyrighted of PimPbABy3. kekeke.. thanks dear! I love baby loki!!!! oh ya.. and loki too, of coz! hahahah....

A friend who visited my cats the other day commented that Latte is a bad ass. Well, I have to admit, he is quite aggressive. He will come over to play, but after awhile, he decides that he has had enough and will swap with his paws and bite really hard.
It would be really hard to imagine this agressive little creature... ok.. fat creature... hahha... used to be the sweetest little cat on earth. He would let people hold him forever, carry him in an position, stroke him... anything. He really tolerates any kind of handling.
However, one fateful Chinese New Year, my father's friends kids played really rough with Latte. They dangled him from his back legs. Latte is quite chubby, that must have really hurt! Nobody did anything to stop those kids, by the time I took Latte away, harm is already done. Physically he is alright, but mentally, he is no longer the innocent, friendly little cat.
We saw a 180 degrees change in his behaviour. He became very agressive. If you touch him when he is moody, he will bite. If you walk pass him when he is in a bad mood, he will jump on your foot and bite. When you carry him to his room when he doesn't want to go back yet, he will bite. Occasionally, he will display he usual sweet self, coming to you for a pat. But he is far from the sweet cat that he once was. That was 2 chinese new year ago. Today, he will initiate play, but once it gets too excited, the agressiveness comes back. I believe he no-longer trust humans totally.
It's rather sad to hear people comment that he is a bad cat. He isn't. Cruelty made him mean. And to think it happened in my own home! I hope with kindness, Latte will be back to what he was.
