The neighbourhood is clean and tidy. This is because the cleaners have swept up all the litter from the residents. Sometimes I even see flyers all over the void-deck when the bin is just beside the postboxes!!
Of course cats are much cleaner and have no use for paper and litter, like Minah who is seen here spending her time just relaxing after kibble :) She is looking healthy and fit and I'm glad the residents in the block are very fond of her. Some of them even tell me that they think 'my cat' is very pretty. One old uncle even asked me when she was going to give birth! I have to tell him she is spayed and well she is just a fat kitty :)
Saturday finds everyone rather sleepy. I thought the cat show was today and got ready for it only to be reminded it will be tomorrow. So I went out and bought some guards for the cabinet doors that would prevent megat from opening them. They are kid -proof so should be cat-proof too. Will put the pic up later.

I have never seen a conversation about cat toys without Da Bird in prominence. Cats universally seem to love Da Bird, and when our cats are happy, their human slaves are happy too. The feather action inspires cats to bigger and better play ideas, and a bit of human trickery can make the game even more exciting for your cat. Expect hours and hours of play from Da Bird, but be careful not to wear out your kitty. He will play until he crashes, if given that option. For that reason alone, it's best to hide this toy when not in use. (But don't be surprised if your cat leads you to that secret closet, with an irresistible expression on her face.)

The amigos are all asleep right now much to my surprise. Toro is on the low table next to this laptop, Megat on the sofa behind me, Bujang on the Marukan and Ms Akira on top of the tall cupboard in the computer room. So nobody is trying to muscle in to sit on my laptop as I am typing :) I think they were all tired out from watching me wash all the bins and cleaning the bathroom.
It was a little smoky when I went to feed the wildbunch. I fed only 3 today - Minah, FatBoy aka Johnny and Cal. The woman with the pet tortoise came home early from work and she swent to feed Putih - her favourite kitty. She told me that FatBoy's other nick was Johnny. We both tried to call him by that name and he ignored the both of us! I told her about the complaints to the TC. She was horrified and told me that her father had seen the two kids. She told me she would get her father to speak to them about feeding responsibly too. I hope all this would work on the two little kids!
I saw Cal quite early. She was hiding under a blue car. That made me very nervous as the man who hates cats has a car just like that. I kept trying to entice her to get out from under the car but to no avail. I was afraid the man might come back and hurt her or something. Finally the owners of the car came by. They were an Indian couple but they didn't see Cal. So I had to tell them about her being under their car. The man told me not to worry as he would make sure she was out from under his car before he drives off. He said "the sound of the engine would drive her away." Then I saw him making sure that she was indeed out from under his car before he drove off :)
Another man came by the void deck and he spoke to FatBoy. FatBoy answered him so I knew the man was a friend and indeed he gave FatBoy several scritches before he showed me the pic of his very clever one-year old cat. His cat actually does his business in the toilet bowl! WOAH! He said he didn't even have to train his cat. He just climbed onto the bowl and did his business! That is one very clever Tux!
As I was on my way home, I saw the man who hates cats! He was burning incense and hell money and making quite a mess himself. I don't think he saw the irony of him accusing the kitties of creating a mess and he himself doing just the thing that he hated. I don't think he would think he deserved the death penalty but he was more than willing to send the kitties to their deaths!

Huh? What did you say? We have to move what?!
Oh! That's ok then. I don't mind standing guard...
After all, all the books are about me :)
You don't say? I have to move now?
Let me think about it. Its time for a nap...

I guess the litter left by the primary school children is what will ultimately be the undoing of Putih. The kind-hearted children who love her leave her food but forgot to think about her safety. I'm sure they love her as they had used their pocket money to buy her food every school day. Some days are worse than others and I have had to clean up some real messes. So yesterday I decided to tell the shop-keeper to remind the students not to throw the cat food around and to clean up after themselves. At first the man was quite taken aback but promised to help me remind the children. I also told him that if they keep throwing catfood around, Putih might not be around much longer to love!
