Cats on Tuesdays

People always say I’m an attention seeker who would grab every bit of limelight if I could. Even if it means stealing it from Luna. Especially if it means stealing it from Luna.

But that is not true. Although S thinks the following series of pictures are cold hard proof of the above theory, in reality I’m shielding Luna from The Camera. You see, she hates it.

Taking one for the team.

Yes I am aware there are other pictures like that and that they are all taken on different occasions.

Didn’t manage to get there fast enough for this one!

I’m just doing my part as a friend. Saving a damsel from distress.

What? We just don’t like sudden, loud, foreign noises, okay?

What is the big deal about pink paws? I have pink where everyone can see. That is all that matters.

Nuggets Part 2: Buying a Pedigree

November 14, 2009

Let’s face it, almost all of us love a good pedigree. Although many naysayers think it is selfish to buy a ped when there are so many homeless and abandoned moggies out there (and they are not wrong), I think the key is responsible breeding.

One huge advantage of getting a pedigree is knowledge of its history. I came to J & S with a complete chart of my parents and grandparents. My temperament is also largely predictable and consistent with my breed.

To get these advantages, I cannot stress the importance of doing your research well and finding a good breeder. Always ask for a pedigree tree of sort, so that your ped’s history and lineage is clear.

Do not buy from pet shops! If you are going to pay through your nose, make sure you don’t end up with a quiet Bengal, a tiny Maine Coon or a scowling Ragdoll.

Personally, I think a ped is a good addition to a household that already has other creatures. Take for example, Arthur. With the demise of Diana who was essentially the whole of his world, he has became an extremely jumpy and somewhat neurotic Cat who hates being alone but also dislikes other four-legged creatures.

As you can probably imagine, it was not easy finding a good fit. Getting a ped offered a solution, and S found me after spending many hours trawling through books and the internet.

P1050216

Talk to the breeders you have shortlisted. Ask many questions. The good ones will reply your questions with patience, because they love their Kittens and want them to go to good homes. Of course, you might meet some strange people too. A particular Maine Coon breeder actually said she would not sell her Kittens to Singaporeans. Now now, that was catty! We are pretty sure that breaks a good number of discrimination laws.

Finally, do plan your finances properly. A ped does not come cheap. The initial outlay aside, do think about whether you can afford the upkeep that often comes along with getting a ped–vet fees, grooming fees, premium food and so on. A bad economy is not a good excuse for abandoning your Cat!

This post is specially dedicated to Adrian and Kelly. Thanks for making sure I turned out healthy and beautiful without a bad-tempered bone in me, and for finding me a good home!

Penny for your thoughts

I’m often deep in thought. J disagrees. According to him, my brain is asleep. That is extremely untrue! And incredibly rude.

For that, I’m glad he missed the Marks & Spencer’s Penny Sale yesterday.

I’m not a chocolate pointed Siamese,

Or a great big Orange Tabby Cat.

I do not own a Tuxedo,

And let’s not even talk about Socks.

I’m a little grey girl,

Grey is a boring colour you say?

It’s the colour of dark skies and rainy days,

And dust bunnies that tickle your face.

But I do have paws so pink,

While Arthur’s look like they’re stained with ink!

Girls v Boys

Here is Arthur’s entire grooming routine. Talk about a lack of system. This is the reason why he sometimes Smells Funny.

The only reason why he took pains to clean his face is because that is easy and it feels nice.

I took the same amount of time to groom just my paw. One paw.

And also the mat I’m lying on because I’m a neat little girl.

J and S thinks I bear an uncanny resemblance to my Dad in the video. But I must disclaim! People always look bigger on screen. Applies to Cats too.

I hate it when Luna takes My Chair.

P1050231

P1050234

Don’t you think it is awfully rude of her to make herself so comfortable on My Chair?

P1050235

P1050241

I tried reasoning with her but she ignored me. She’s been doing that a lot lately. I wonder what it’s all about.

So I had no choice but to use the couch.

I tried my best to look really cute so that S would make Luna give me back My Chair. But she thinks I should be a man and get it back myself.

P1050244

I thought about it, but well, I fell asleep.

P1050246

After awhile, Luna finally left My Chair. She said she was done making her point, but I still don’t know what that is.

I’m glad to have My Chair back, but I wasn’t very sure if I liked it as much anymore. Luna left her Synthetic Teddy Bear Smell all over it!

P1050267

P1050266

I had to contemplate for about 30minutes.

Really, I don’t see all this hype about how she smells like a Synthetic Teddy Bear. S always turns her nose up at me and says I am Smelly Like Cat Food. But at least, that’s a Cat Related Smell.

Hello, pretty girl
