Popps and Tanaka spent the morning together enjoying sunpuddles. This was a special moment as this was the first time they had sat so closely together, if at all. It had taken about 4 years to get here!

Bujang watches cat videos on Youtube at night while I use my phone. In a sense we both surf together. Last night, he decided, after watching 2 bird videos, that he would try to catch one. So he hid his head to the side of the iPAD and waited for a bird to eat a seed. Then like a flash, his paw would strike at a birdie. He had infinite patience and did that for some time. I had to take the iPAD way from him so we both can get some sleep.

I need to complain about san. She bundles me up and then she makes me take medicine every morning. The only thing I like about this is the ice cube that she places on my cheeks and eyes. It helps with the itch. San tells me I am looking very well and indeed I feel so much better as well. I am at the better cycle of my eczema. In a few days my face will turn redder but until then I am a happy gurl. San also tells me that the scalloped edges of my eye are not getting more pronounced. When I first came to live here, the scalloped were worse and sharper. She thinks she has managed to help me take care of my eyes in my older years like she takes care of grandma's eyes as well. I dont have to use eye drops though. san thinks its my diet and all my meds that have contributed to me improved cornea.

san told me to look at the camera this morning but I didn't feel like it. This was the best picture she got. I think she was lucky to get even that as it was very early in the morning. I wanted to say that I try my best at being a good brother but I can't understand why the cats here are so still. I have gotten into trouble with them and san when I tried to persuade them to jump about (okay I did slap them about a bit). The timeouts I got were worth the fun!

Hello everyone. I was telling san that she needed to tell my side of the story with Rez. I was very tolerant for 2 years. I knew he was young and I thought he would settle down. But there is such a thing as 'a little too slow.' I think Rez is like that so I am taking a firmer hand with his education. I am glad my sister Akira is taking a more proactive approach as well. i have decided to follow her example.
I am glad to report after many firm reminders, he is no longer harassing me quite as much. I am letting my sister deal with him more and more as I know she can do it and it makes her feel part of the family to do this. It will be three years this December. When will he learn do you think?

2.5 years ago he was called Blackie, just for the color of his coat. This was Blackie after dinner. When he heard the key rings, he would yell for us to wait so we would know he was coming to dinner. he had only 2 meals a day and sometimes not even that as he would sometimes be afraid to come out if he was chased off by people the day before. Sometimes there would be feral dogs who would come for food left by others and chase him off.
This was last Sunday. He owns the bedroom now. He had been allowed full reign of the house but he decided that my bedroom was best. Now, however, little by little he has decided to come out in the evening to sit with the family which was good. It allows the otehr cats to get used to his presence and for him to figure out what living with a family is like. It took Popps about a year to figure this out. Rezki is taking a much longer time. This will be his 3rd year in the house.

Our first Easy Peasy Sunday since so long ago. One noteworthy thing was Rezki’s picture. These days he hardly ever opens his eyes when san takes his picture in the bedroom. Before he used to stare at her until she finished. San thinks he’s getting more comfortable and less wary. San also thinks that he is comfortable in the house. Now we all wish that he would stop badgering us. San says that would come in time.

This was not a picture taken today. This was taken yesterday when Popps uncharacteristically groomed so near Tanaka. I do not know if she realised Tanaka was there or she has had a change of heart about him. But it seems to me she is much more relaxed these days and would walk about the house in the afternoons as well compared to just at night when she would be out in the living room by herself.

san went to the Pet Expo last Satyrday and didn't buy us treats, like a normal human being who has cats. She bought us only ONE thing, this teepee. I think it's because she also got a gift (see the cloth doggie bone at my left). This teepee was sold by some vendors from Thailand. They had 4 cats and made their cats little teepees and since their 4 cats liked them, they made some more to sell. It was quite ok to sit in except it was very bright. I told san I might like to have the doorway closed a little so I can have more privacy.
If you look behind me, through our window, you can see a koi fish. That one san bought for Toro. Its actually blue in colour as Toro had blue eyes. san doesn't know why it looked purple but I told her its just the light. I think I am much smarter than san sometimes.

Apart from it being called DODOPET, I have nothing but joy with our new purchase. The purple-pink ride is especially for Bujang. As much as he loves the red stroller, the space does not allow him to sit up to watch the world. This new one does allow that but he was a little uncertain when he sat in it for the first time last Wednesday. We got his from the same vendor as our red one. The vendor Zinan Pan was very sweet and had asked her suppliers for something just like this for our use. She also trusted us when I told her I could only complete the transaction after delivery as I was on course for school and could not send her any money on the day of delivery.
Bujang tried to sit up when we were near home. The new stroller is collapsible and so it would be easier for me to carry it on the go when he is walking in his harness.
