It's Hard to Say GoodBye!

Kenggy became weaker but she managed to maneuvre herself to face the MeowRoom door. Our human placed a rolled-up cloth to support her head to ease her shallow breathing.
Her best friend, Winnie, came to keep her company, both staring at each in a silent communication.
Soon after Kenggy passed away on 10th June 2014. She was cremated.

Before our human could finish clearing the special 'Meow Suite', Pebble got seriously ill. Pebble's sickness was a constant yo-yo.

To replenish her medication, our human made an appointment with Pebble's doctor to pick it up the next day. Early next morning, on 25th January 2016, Pebble was found in a rigor mortis mode and a phone call was quickly made to her vet to cancel her medication.

Here Tanya, Winnie and Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK were telling EJ that they have finished saying their last goodbye. Just like the rest before her, Pebble was cremated.

It was when her ash came home that it hit EJ that both, Kenggy's and Pebble's, absence was really felt.

Yes, that 'Meow Suite' was dismantled and cleaned but EJ somehow could not clear many of their things. Perhaps our human need a little more time to heal emotionally.

So Hot!

Winnie, in the MeowYard, is making a funny face because it is so hot!
Yes, the days are sweltering hot due to the El Nino effect.

So she went into the MeowRoom and laid on the tiled floor with the fan blasting at her exposed belly.

Little Jack Corner

This incredibly bashed up and tattered walk-board is so much loved that our human is having second thoughts replacing it.

It is also Captain Jack Sparrow's favourite napping spot.

Where else can you rest with your butt secure, your paws crossed and hang your leg down leisurely?

She Wears a Bib

Bathing and blow-drying Pebble takes two hours. To cut the time down to half, our human clean either Pebble's top half or bottom half.

Cleaning the top half is often as she cannot fully control her limbs while eating and ends up in the dish; at times even toppling over. Our human end up spending more time cleaning Pebble than Pebble eating her food.

Then, our human had a little brain wave, went out, bought the smallest baby bib and made Pebble wear it during feeding time.

It worked to a certain degree and made cleaning up a little easier.

Gravity's Unforgiving Pull

Our human tried for months to take a good picture of Tanya's belly but did not want to wait anymore and went ahead to snap it.

Each time Tanya would turn abruptly and run off.

There were times when she would promptly sit down and stare into emptiness. Our human would then wonder what went through that little brain.

The little red arrow shows her grossly unappealing sagging belly almost touching the floor even when she stands. Worsen by gravity's unforgiving pull, her belly sways from side to side when she walks fast or goes into a little run. 

After these photo shots, Tanya quickly plopped down, turned and gave this laser-glare that says 'I am not happy with you!'.
