Family

Popps has become increasingly curious about the goings-on outside of the flat. We now have cat-safe 2 inch grills so we open the windows to allow for the breeze. So she also gets the breeze that flows through the house with all the attendant noise of people walking past, vendors bringing groceries and me ringing the bell. She usually meows to welcome me home when she sees me at the door and then she would immediately get down and go to the kitchen for a little snack of raw mackeral. She doesn't do this for anyone else though. She associates me with fish :)

These days she would watch amost of the people and would be curiously looking at them walking past. Before, she would just sleep on and she doesn't care about what happens outside of the flat.
She is also much more fond of Tanaka and they sometimes share the same space. In this pic, Ms Akira is under the table watching the both of them. Tanaka makes sure that when he is outside and Rez is about, that he stays close to his sisters as they would protect him and make sure he gets to sleep safely. Sometimes Popps would reprimand him if he has the zoomies as she finds it 'irritating' that he runs about the house. She has also taken to reprimanding Rez when he does the same. She told Fern last week that she feels more like 'family' these days. Also she knows that we have been trying to accommodate her preference for pine litter. Pine litter is dusty and as a result both Bujang and I keep sneezing for months and even Rez keeps itching because of the dust (we suspect). SO now she is trying to use another pine litter that is less dusty and she knows that we are using tofu litter in the bedroom. She doesn't like tofu as 'it smells funny' and would pee just outside the tofu litter box. But we told her that she has 2 other boxes with pine that she can use and please not to pee outside the tofu litter box. She says that she will 'try'. Hmmmm.

We're glad that Popps is feeling like one of the family! We sure hope you all figure out that litter issue!

We simply love the pic showing Popps and Tanaka snoozing close to one another.

We are glad that everyone is coming more into the family spirit. Of course, family also includes the occasional spat. Over here, Tama could be heard screaming at her Beebs this morning when he tried to chase her!

Purrs,
