I am thankful I got to go for several walks this week. The days were not too hot and San and I walked in the mornings.
Popps: I am thankful that my eyes are no longer red. San thinks it's the dryer that we have in the house. Last Thursday the repairman came and cleaned up the whole machine and after that my eyes were much better.
Akira: I am thankful that for the whole week I got to walk about in the morning. San put Tanaka in the room where he can't disturb me. But he gets out when San comes home but San is always about and would remind him to leave me alone.
This morning the family was involved in a charity drive to provide 400 school going children with school bags and school paraphernalia for 2016. All in all everyone has had a thankful week.

Bujang at 4 weeks with grandma Bujang at 10 years old with grandma
Bujang and grandma having a private conversation
Grandma likes to tell stories about taking care of Bujang when he was 4 weeks. I brought him home in a box having rescued him from drowning in a drain. He was one of 4 kittens. as grandma was (at that time) adamant that we should not have any animals in the house, I just brought one home so we would not be overwhelmed. The other 3 kittens were brought home by my good friend, who had experience with taking care of kittens and her house had a garden which would allow 3 kittens a lot of space. Grandma likes to tell stories about feeding him from a tiny bottle, patting his back afterwards and hearing him burp. She also likes to tell stories about feeding him from a little spoon when he refused food.
Bujang loves grandma and would sit with her listening to her chat. She is the only one he allows to touch his back. At 10 years old, he is still listening to her old stories about him :)

Akira at acupuncture
She relaxes almost immediately when she gets onto the table. In Dec she would have done TCM for a little more than a year. Her fur has not grown very much but she has not bitten through her skin for many months already which was the original concern. Because she has grown so much in confidence I am able to have her in the soft collars 5 days a week. This helps as well in protecting her fur from getting pulled out when she grooms. There is a soft down on her previously nude parts which is good to see.

This morning I got to be the one who is outside in the morning. It was strange but I got to sit with San in the morning. Yesterday Tanaka hit me on the behind again even though he was told many times not to be so naughty. San thought if he understands what it feels like in the room he would be a better kitty with me.
San asked Fern to explain it to him as he thought otherwise he would be confused and not know why he was there.
Tanaka: he was mixed with guilt and some playfulness when talked to him. I reminded him not to chase and disturb A. Also I let him know new arrangement. He felt bit surprised and unhappy though he knows why. He said A so uptight. And after that he stopped talking to me. Healed him with focus more on emotion. He was quiet.
Akira: She said T was teasing her and asked if she was ok with him now? Then she got annoyed and afraid he would disturb her and then he did. She felt he never left her alone and became stressed. I told her of new arrangement. She felt relieved and thanked you for doing this for her. I healed her mind to calm her too but can feel she felt it's unexpected though not scared now.
Bujang: He said he tried to stop T by warning him but the boy just too naughty so he couldnt do anything much. I asked him try to talk to T. He said he talked to A to comfort her already.
I don't know why he is so naughty San.

Today is my Gotcha Day. I am 8 years old. I came to live wif San since I was 8 weeks. I fink I make my home much more lively as I am energetic and full of life. San said full of shenanigans but she is wrong. I am wearing my birthday gooodpetcollar but San modified some things and now the collar stays as it should.

We have been walking downstairs more these past few weeks. Bujang. Tanaka and even Popps ventured downstairs for a change in scenery. However last Saturday, Popps absolutely refused to wear her harness and I was very puzzled. I tried (probably for much longer than I should) and she struggled and scratched me. Then Bujang actually hit her on her behind and she became very quiet. I was able to put her down gently and all of us rested for a bit. However, the whole of Sunday afternoon, Popps decided to just stay in the kitchen.
Last night, as usual, they had Reiki and conversations with Fern.
Poppy: She said she wanna go for walks or in trolley but doesn't want to go back to her old place anymore.
Fern: She gave me an unsettling/reluctant feeling when telling me this. And she doesn't like to wait to go out as 2nd or 3rd. I told B has to go first as we all show him respect in that sense. She listens and softened.
Bujang: He said he was happy. I asked him if he hit p's bottom. He said yes, no one can hurt you (if he is there) He thanked you for walking him. His back feels fine.
I thought I should only bring Popps out at the end of the week to allow her to calm down for a bit. But I am grateful that Bujang feels the need to protect me and that Popps is fine. She still thinks she should be first in all things but she is learning slowly that inside living is just as complicated as outside living, although much more safe.

We have been trying to get Bujang to relax so his back would hurt less. It seems finally he is beginning to realize this.
Bujang: He told me he understands better now that he should become wiser and calmer so that the kitties will respect him. He said he would try to do that with P, not to trouble her. He seemed very gentleman-ish as he spoke like that. I told him we know he is very good and wise. On a seoarste note, he said the laundry from upstairs neighbors flew past yr unit the other day and he loved to watch it. He was peaceful before and after the healing. He felt contented.

Good Sunday Everyone. Our week has been good and non hazy. There was only one yelling incident between Akira and Tanaka and that's about it. All in all excellent.

I asked Fern to tell him that he should not bite my cheeks or my chin when he sniffs at me at night. He has taken to sniffing me before he sleeps or get ready for his night snuggle. It could be pretty painful as well.
He had this to say about it:
T said then how would u know he loves you? (if not bite)? i said kiss kiss and sniff sniff are ok and that way Mummy knows. He said you smell good he feels like biting (love bite: happens a lot in cats to their humans ).
I think he may be smelling treats as I usually give them treats before bed time.

San was surprised that the word is now in the Oxford dictionary. Its listed as
/ˈlɛpak/. Lepaking is from the Malay word 'lepak'. It means to stretch out and just relax with no worries. It can be used as a verb or adjective. However, it does not need to mean 'lazy' as listed in the dictionary. It almost always means 'just taking your time relaxing.'

This Sunday San thought she would have us tell you our philosophy. Or if we have yet to think about it, San would write on our behalf.
But first we thank San for our
This is our second week. Although we know San looks at us anxiously as she thinks we will lick our fur bald in one day, we thank her for letting us have this day.
Now for the rest of the entries.
This is because he was chased by Popps three times last week for being 'irritating'.
Cos last week she 'lost her cool' with Tanaka. She got 'fed up' with his questions.
Bujang's last say to everybody last week. He told Fern that he had already reminded Tanaka to think before he acts.
Have a good Sunday everybody.
ps. We hope our good friend Fern is in less pain today. She has a slip disc although we think it's worse than our brother Bujang's. At least Bujang can walk about. Rest well Fern.
