Haze Alert

Bujang will also have to spend more time indoors. Fern said Bujang has a little trouble with his breathing but its not so serious. This week he spent most of his time indoors or with his cat games on iPad. He loves these games and will spend at least 15 minutes on the Fishing Game or the Art Game before he decides to go do something else. He is very proprietory about the games and will not allow me to participate. Its a good thing the other kitties take no interest in the cat games at all.

We are having a very dry spell and it looks like it will last for a few more weeks. It seems it's the driest we have ever had. With the dry spell comes forest fires, natural or man-made. Indeed this morning we could smell the smoke and realised that the haze is here. So from today, we cannot open any windows nor our door. Bujang has been coughing intermittently but I think its more hairball than asthma. All kitties and people will have to stay indoors. I think if I am to take the kitties for a walk, it would have to be only along the corridors and not downstairs at all. Bujang would not be pleased but at least we could protect ourselves more this way.

Sorry to hear about your weather. A Friend of #1's in in Singapore at the moment and wrote to her this morning about the lack of rain and the haze. Here, it is pouring with rain, windy and cold.

Please stay safe!

Purrs,
The Chans

So our cats are not the only ones coughing! Brought Bagheera to the vet and was told that it could be asthma. It's very early this year (only Feb) to take out the room purifier - that should help with haze/allergy. A mask for Bujang on his walks? He will look super cute.

I am sorry to hear about this nasty haze. I do hope things clear up. You have excellent advice on how to cope with this weather. Right now we have very, very cold weather and lots of snow. By the way, Ms Akira, I just love your pretty collar. Meow, Jessica
