I grew this grass from a grass-kit as I could not get any viable wheatgrass seeds myself. It took about 5 days for the grass to be this height. Tanaka likes eating grass in this way as he has a hard time trying to adjust his whiskers for cut grass. Bujang prefers cut grass. Skywalker is curious about grass. She may not have been given any previously. She likes the smell but she is confused as to why Tanaka enjoys eating it. So she scrutinizes him every time he eats grass.

Today we had a kitchen cabinet contractor who came to measure our kitchen cabinets. After 20 years I thought it was time to redo them all or at least change the laminate. As usual Sky was very excited when we have guests. She followed him about. He was very taken with her beauty and wanted to get a picture of her. He called her ‘Manja’ which is Malay for ‘affection’ or I guess Princess. There is no English equivalent for the word.

Is there a sadder pose for a little kitty?
Sky pranked Bujang last night and it turned out poorly. Bujang had a shock, ran out of his room, jumped onto the couch and immediately fell on his side to land in the open space between the couch and the table. He is not fully recovered from his IVD and still walks unsteadily and still tilted to one side so he fell on that side.
I was not able to help him as he would have turned my arms into ribbons (I have a lot of experience with Bujang’s panic). I waited for him to right himself (it was full of anxiety for both of us). But once he righted himself (he fell onto the floor and then managed to turn himself the right way round), I scolded Sky for doing such a thing. Bujang was quiet and watched.
Sky was quiet and when I told her to go into her room, she meekly went in and sat on her bed. No meowing at the gate and no pounding at it. She knew she was in trouble.
Then the whole house turned in as it was bedtime. This morning she acted cute with me but I told her it would not be so easy. But I did pet her a little as I was leaving so she would feel a little better as Bujang was not hurt in the prank. But I will only know later when he sees his osteopath.

What’s this san? Why can’t I see the outside clearly?
Ok. I can see outside and feel the breeze. That’s something at least.
I decided to put the mesh against this window as well eventhough we have cat safety grills. She had pounded on the mesh at the window next to her cat gym when she saw birds flying past yesterday. I thought she might pound on this window as well and if there was no mesh she would get hurt. We live on the 9th floor and the danger is real.
