Still on the subject of beds, this is my new bed. I don't sleep in the Muji box anymore as it's now too small to fit me and Mr Donkey. So now I have this cave in fresh spring colours. Now it fits me, my orange and yellow blanket and Mr Donkey. Of cos I only allow the boys to use it (the girls have shown no curiosity whatsoever). Bujang and Tanaka use it sometimes but I am the only one in it at night because it's my bed.

Our commcat Girl2 was in a fight with a 'stranger cat' that had been roaming the area for a few years. No one could catch him as he visits our area at night and is not a regular. We tried to catch her 2 days ago but failed.
At about 5ish yesterday, Cousin R and I managed to catch her using a sack. We tried to keep calm even though we nervous.
I had to keep her in the carrier outside the kitchen so Rez can rest. She was quiet. The amigos were also quiet although they know that something was up with the strange cat. But they did not make a fuss and Girl2 became much more calm herself. Both of us waited for about 5 hours for Regine to get her. Regine is part of Petwagon and she is a humane trapper and also helps to take care of injured cats. Both Rez (when he was a commcat) and Girl2 had gone to Regine before for injuries and recuperation.
Both the boys were helping me to keep her company. Right after Regine came to take Girl2 away, all of us turned in. After a short grooming session...
both Tanaka and Bujang fell right to sleep. They had both stayed up after their bedtime and were really tired.

I got this for the amigo yesterday to put in this corner. Tanaka the QC officer was the first one in it.
I think Bujang was surprised he could fit in it. I had first thought I would have to give it away to my Sister whose cat is smaller.
This morning Bujang tried it again for size. He seems comfortable in this igloo so it will stay so everyone can enjoy it. Popps doesn't like igloos, preferring open cat seats. Akira has not tried it. I think soft collar would get in the way. The Ninja has also not tried this yet. But it seems comfortable enough.

Bujang and I went to the bigger park this morning. We went out later than usual so it was beginning to get hot when we left. It was pretty quiet though as the exercise centre was cordoned off for renovations. Bujang was meowing for someone I guess so I had to tell him he was the only cat there. He walked to the playground but there was no one there as well.

On 2 April 2016 we took him in thinking that it would be just matter of SubQ and meds for a month and he could get back to his old life. This was his first day with us. He was a commcat that suddenly appeared in the carpark, most probably abandoned as he knew how to play with cat toys and likes treats. Our other commcats would ignore treats.
We tried to put him up for adoption.
But he had other plans

Last night I decided to sleep on san's blanket and used both her pillows. Tanaka wanted to play but I didn't feel like it as I was feeling a little unwell. So san used the a/c which made me feel better. But I stayed here for the whole night as I knew san would try to sleep here if I vacated the space. I had a restful night and felt better in the morning.
Note: this was the first time Bujang had a slight fever. His ears were hot and he was not as insistent on walking as he would be if he was well. He did not move at all, even to go to the bins for the whole night. He felt very well in the morning and had his breakfast and took his meds with good grace.

Today I sat near the window next to Poppy. She was asleep so she didn't see me here.
I also went into grandma's room to see what it was like. It was cool and quiet. No wonder my bruffer Bujang likes it a lot.
But I like sitting here best of all as I can run into my room if the gurls decide to chase me off.
This is the safest place. No one comes in at all and I can sleep in peace.

The love and hate relationship between The Ninja and Tanaka. This morning Akira rescued Tanaka from Ninja Rezki. Rezki is calmer these day and Tanaka not so afraid of him. It will still take some time but at least they are trying to negotiate space and behaviour.

The torn mat is all Rezki's handiwork. If he does not get his way, he would yell and tear the mat apart. Then he would mess up his blanket. After some time he would relax and play with his toy by the window. I usually wait for the storm to pass before letting him out.

He went for a walk yesterday and we saw this. It looked festive until the workers for the Town Council came to clean it up. They brought one of those big blowers and scared Bujang. So we went to the park.
Thank goodness he was dressed up with his black and red bow tie that I got him from Catopia. It's a gooodpetcollar so he looked good and the shelter gets 5 tins of canned food as well. Bujang cares a lot what he looks like (from his conversations with Fern. But I am glad he thinks that whatever collar or harness I put on him makes him look good).
My favourite photo of him in a small hidey-hole that allowed him to be hidden and also allowed him to see everything else.
Bujang enjoyed himself tremendously. He didn't even mind when we had to leave for home. We spent about an hour there before the sun got too hot for him and for me.

We celebrated Akira's birthday yesterday although she was gotched on 21 Feb. She was gotched from the SPCA. When she came to the house she was fearsome and independent and fell in love with Bujang, who admittedly was my only other cat. Now she is well on her way to getting her groove back with the help of many people and cats alike.
I got her this collar just for her birthday. She looks like a sunny sunflower and it goes well with her calico markings.
She loves this tuna mousse and she would eat almost anything if she gets this at the end of it. So she now eats all her tcm and not spit any of it as she gets the mousse at the end. So she swallows her meds as she swallows the mousse.
Yummy Yum Yum
The tuna mousse that she simply loves. When it's time for her to take pills I know I can pull her if I put it in this mousse, that is if she still likes it then.

Here Rezki is leading the way to the kitchen where he sleeps at night. Every one of the amigos has a special place to sleep so they feel comfortable. Rezki knows the routines of the house very well.
When it's time for bed I will call him from wherever he is as he is usually either napping on top of Akira's cage or in one of the cat napping areas in the living room. I will shake the Friskies treats pack and he will very calmly lead the way to the kitchen, his tummy swinging. He will wait by his kibble bowl and look at me, inspect the number of treats he gets and then get down to business.
It's his fav time of the day.

Bujang told Fern that he wanted to walk more and that he misses walking downstairs. So this morning, after his walk at the usual place, I brought him to the same park that he goes riding in. Then he decided that he wanted to walk.
He walked along the ixora bushes as well. He loves the smell of ixora flowers.
He had quite an adventure and did not want to come home. But I had to carry him back into his carrier as some people were cleaning the dead leaves in the park using a big blower. I knew he would be scared and upset so we went home. He had more than an hour walking about so he was happy.

Finally I found this collar at a pet store when I was online. It is not a virtual store but it did offer online purchases. It came yesterday and I immediately make Akira wear it.
I was afraid it would be too heavy as Akira goes to Adrian for spine alignment as well as her muscles. But I saw she was able to manipulate the collar by herself and this collar does flop down on her body if she hits a wall. This means she can move around quite freely and won't be hindered at all.
This pic shows that she can sit on my lap quite comfortable and rest her head on the petals. It's also soft and pliable but not floppy. I am hopeful that we have found a solution for Ms Akira.
