Monday Mood

              ...breathe...

Fern (yesterday): He said he was a bit frustrated during the week.

Maybe its because he had very short walks because of the Hungry Ghost month and the smoke from joss sticks. Yesterday there was a whole flurry of people celebrating the end of the Hungry Ghost month with the burning of hell money and putting offerings of food under trees and along walkways. So I didn't walk him outside at night. He had a short walk in the morning when there were fewer burners being used.

I know of at least one cat that had singed whiskers and our own community cat Putih had her tail burnt by flying embers (I hope) and not from abuse by people who think its funny to burn a cat as well as hell money. We had put some medication on her tail and will continue for the week. I also asked Fern to tell her to keep away from people she doesn't know for this week at least.

Hungry Ghost month sounds like a scary time for cats. We are sorry to hear about the kitty with the burnt tail, and hope she will be okay.

All that smoke must be awful for air pollution!

We hope you will be able to walk more this week, Bujang! And that San listens to your advice.

Purrs,

We do hope the community cat heals soon. People playing with fire is never a good idea as children and kitties are too easily hurt. Be thankful your walks are short and sweet Bujang. Meow from Jessica
