Easy Peasy Sunday Thanks

Today's post is about giving thanks. San said I should be the first to post as I was a little naughty and had fought with my sister Akira on Friday night. As a result Akira had hurt her eye a little ... not much at all. Ok I should not have fought at all. I am sorry Akira. 
San put some antibiotic cream on it and now it is ok. San asked me why I did it and I told Fern that I was bored. San was surprised and told me that being bored was just part of life at home and violence was not the answer. She told me perhaps I could find my own entertainment or think about how to keep peace in the house without using violence. Hmmmmm... that sounds like a lot of mumbo jumbo. Then she said she would take me for a walk and give me my red cube back. I was sorry and really, I am thankful I have a home as she told me that being bored was any time much better than being chased and hurt by other cats downstairs. And so I should stop hurting my family as I knew what that would feel like. I told her I would think about it again. 
This is our family photo of the week. I went outside for abit yesterday as san wanted me to have a more varied day so I won't get bored. But I didn't like it much and so we went home quite quickly. My brother Bujang spent much of the week lazing about as he said he wanted to rest. My brother Tanaka, whom I also tried to aggravate last Friday decided to use his time wisely to supervise the weekend cleanup. Lastly my sister Akira spent the whole day outside. She was very happy and I did not disturb her at all. I spent my whole day here tranquility
       On grandma's bed napping and resting. 
We said we had some news about Jeffrey but we are afraid to say that he was very shy with the potential adopters and spent much of the visit under the cages. He ran away from them and did not even sit with them for any time at all. San thinks he may not manage a trial stay with these people who came to see him but she told him that there would be other people and other chances. Maybe later, he may learn to be a little more sociable. This month, he has 3 events to go to where he can learn to be with strangers and get better. San is glad that all the events would be indoors. 
I considered all this, especially the part about Jeffrey still having to look for pawrents who would love him. I already have a family who loves me. I must agree with san that my life is now very good with my family. So I think I should say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone. I am truly happy to be here except sometimes I just get a little bored and my family is just there for me to bully...errr play with. 

Saturday Easy

Bossy Boots had been up to many shenanigans involving karate moves like Bruce Lee. But today she decided to call a truce. 

Friday, May 29, 2015


    Phew! Thank goodness it's Friday

Today I think I will stay away from warrior princess Akira. She is learning bad habits from Bossy Boots. Last night I was just curious to ask her to play and she yelled at me and jumped down from her seat. I was shocked! I cringed and tried to make myself as small as possible. 

There was also chaos as Bossy Boots started to growl as well in the study and Bujang came to see what the fuss was about. San did not want grandma to be upset or even Bujang and so she advised me to go into the bedroom as it was eight o'clock and time to rest. She switched off all the lights and told everyone to go to bed. Phew!

I spent the rest of bedtime here, near the door in case Akira decided to come in and beat me up!

            I am no pushover !

Easy Peasy Sunday

This week is one of changes for me. I am glad I still get to sit here whenever I want.
 This is my new sleeping quarters. This is the study or Akira's room. San told me that since I am calm and can learn new routines quickly, I should sleep closer to everyone else and not be too far away in the kitchen. There may be other changes as well as San thinks I might like to have my cage back in the living room as well but I am glad she will leave that for later. So now at night, I walk into this room by myself to sleep. I get a snack and then sleep on san's computer chair. The next morning I walk to the kitchen for breakfast like the beans. But I told Fern to tell San and the kitties this message from me.

Poppy: she said she's fine with yr arrangement and said the kitchen's still hers at night too. :))

The rest of my family is much the same. San finally went for a walk with my brothers. They were pleased. Bujang nearly bit the acupuncturist yesterday. So San had to remove one or two needles at home. Tanaka is learning to be more disciplined and to leave Ms Akira alone outside for longer periods of time. But this is always under san's supervision. But at least Akira gets to be outside for longer with him outside as well. 

We will be able to post some news about Jeffrey later this week. The house visit went well. The house has grills at all the windows and the potential adopters don't open their windows at all as the area is pretty busy. They have air conditioning. So it looks promising. Now all that is needed is some quiet time for Jeffery and his potential people and that will happen at the end of the week. San is praying that they do not change their minds before meeting him and giving him a chance. 
He is not going to the adoption event at Cat Wu this morning as it's far away at Yio Chu Kang and San does not want him tired out again. San was looking at his before and after pictures and was shocked at the change in a span of just 1.5 months of going to and from from adoption events so she thinks it's best he stays at the boarding house this week.

     Time to rest and leave it all to san

Thursday Tweet

San posted this picture earlier of us together. It was ok. I wasn't upset as I got the bigger share of the bed. And as you can see (but Bujang did not) I was secretly doing press ups.
Then I saw this! I was surprised. 
For those of you who asked if it was ok, the answer is NO! So yesterday when he came to the kitchen and he stared me down , I growled and yelled at him. I had not done that for many weeks. 

san came to see what the screaming was about and told Bujang to leave me alone. Since I was already in my cage, she closed the door and told me to rest. Then she told Bujang to leave the kitchen. Bujang was not a happy kitty but he did as san wanted him to do. 
Phew! I am so glad I have my own bed and blanket and Popps doesn't sit here at all. I prefur yoga to press ups. I heard the commotion all the way to the computer room I was in, But Ms Akira was ok. She just minded her own business.  This Popps is one scary Bossy Boots!!

ps san had posted 2 of these pictures already this week. But she thought she needed to again to make a good story. Thank you for the questions.

Just Because

            I should be in pictures!

I sat here yesterday to remind San that there are other things that were inpawtant in life like walks outside, even though it was raining. San was very busy and told me she had exam papers to grade. I was undaunted by such a silly excuse. In the end she promised me that she should be less busy mid-week and we could walk then. Beans need to be reminded about the impawtant things sometimes.

Monday Mood


Bujang: he asked where you had been today (Sunday) and said he missed you. Then he said don't worry, he made sure everything at home was fine and under control. 

I told him you helped Jeffrey find a good home, he was quite sympathetic about Jeffrey.

Easy Peasy and Jeffrey

It is my duty to do today's post as it concern Jeffrey. I knew him from the time I was a commcat myself. 

Jeffrey went to his 3rd adoption event at the 'Old is Gold' do.  San and another friend C got lost because of poor instructions given by the organizers and got to the event one hour from the time they were supposed to be there. It was very hot by this time and as they were under a tent, it was just trapped heat. 
Jeffrey was panting by the time he was put in the cage although there were cooling gel packets and ice in the cage. Later on , at about 1.30 or so he was better. 
He wore the special collar San bought for him as well. 

San gave him Bujang's tag COURAGE cos San thinks he needs it most of all.
What was wonderful was the potential adopters came to see him and his potential 'mom' was very pleased. San will be going for a house visit next Tuesday to see if the house is cat-proof.  We are hopeful that he doesn't have to go to another adoption event at the end of this week.
Our Sunday was Easy Peasy. We are grateful we have a home and pray that Jeffrey will get a home by next week. Please pray for him.

Just Because

Popps is fine. She is managing Bujang very well and has not antagonized him at all for the past weeks. She said to Fern that 'Bujang is easy.' So Bujang is much calmer and less stressed. She likes her raw skinless chicken and her times infront of the door for the breeze. Her favourite place is still grandma's bed though. But she knows Bujang gets it first and would wait patiently for her turn. 


       The weekend is here...finally

We planned some naps and treats today. san says she bought us some freeze-dried Norwegian cod. She seems very pleased but we are not so sure. We're the Friskies gang when it comes to treats. We shall see.

Thursday Thots

    Relaxing by the door for the breeze

It has been a very hot these past few days and everyone is feeling it, cat and human both. But we try our best to get as much breeze as we can. There have been loud thunders but no rain where we live although in different parts of the island there was heavy rainfall.  

The kitties are all well and thankfully there were no spats. We have not been blogging as there are exams and I have hurt my wrist a little with too much computer work.

Also we have been communicating with a potential adopter for Jeffrey and are optimistic except there is a 'landlord' problem that we need to solve. So whether Jeffrey has a new home by the end of this month is dependent on a landlord agreement. We do not know how this will end finally. We hope it would end well for Jeffrey as we found that he is also FIV+. A senior kitty who is also FIV+ is more than difficult to place. He has 2 adoption events this month and two next month. This weekend for the 'Old is Gold' event, his potential adopters will be there to see him in person. I hope all goes well then.

Happy Mother's Day

We know that san is our mom! When she comes home from work late, grandma tells us "your mom is late". So today we would like to wish her and all moms in the world a Happy Mother's Day. Our osteopath once told san that we must be the luckiest catses in the world as we have a reiki master, an osteopath, an acupuncturist and a vet. What more does a cat want? Hmmmm...I think maybe more tuna!

Saturday Easy

For me only as I will be the only one not out to the doctors today. 
Bujang da Boss man will go to see Adrian for his back. He will NOT like that.
      Akira will go to acupuncture
          And so will Tanaka. 
I will spend my time at home quietly with no disturbances. That is the life!

Friday, May 08, 2015



Popps behaved extremely well the whole week. She was calm when Bujang tried to intimidate her and she turned her face away every time he sat near her. But it must be exhausting work!

Thursday Tweet for Jeffrey

                 Is there more tuna?

We were supposed to meet with Jeffrey's prospective adopters today but they decided to adopt one of their friend's cats instead. Although we were disappointed, we are looking forward to his next adoption event on 17 May for senior pets. There we would get a video of him doing his thing and we can put his pictures and video up at the Cat Welfare Society adoption board. We are also thinking of making some cards with his picture and information that we can give out as part of his adoption strategy.

The recipe for a good nap is a toy and a good soft breeze by the door. Oh and of course being undisturbed by the flashy thing and pesky family members.

Monday Mood


I realized that my life is a good one and I should spend some time in reflection and gratitude for the good life that I have. So even though my brothers and sisters sometimes irritate me and I have to go for acupuncture, take TCM and have osteopathy sessions, I have to take a deep breath and think peaceful thots. 

We didn't have our Easy Peasy Sunday post yesterday as san brought Jeffrey to an adoption event. He had one inquiry and san will follow up during the week. Keep those good thoughts coming guys.

          The calm after the thunder
Even the boys got a little nervous at the sound of thunder 
            There was some rain but I was very brave and didn't hide at all.
