In any multiple cats household, there will be a lot of play. At times when the cats become over-zealous or enthusiastic in mock play, it may escalate into possible aggression.
When that happens, as a prevention, our human would shout or scream, "Oi !, Hey !, Naughty Boy ! or Naughty Girl !" This usually stops the cats in their tracks and all will be back to normal peace.
Somehow with Pebble, it has never progressed to the stage of EJ's shoutings.
EJ found out why and got the evidence.
Here's Pebble hugging the leg of the hardwood podium in the MeowYard at first...
...then turned aggressive, fangs bared with wild-looking eyes clutching the wooden leg and kicking frenziedly.
Pebble must have some imagination!

Winnie says that our human has been featuring all the others and insists that it is her turn now.
Here she is, wide-eyed, very eager, poised and pleased to have her photo taken.
She wishes all a Happy Sunday and a lovely day to all mothers, humans and animals!

Animal tails are expressive. On a cat you can tell everything. You can tell if they are annoyed or scared.
But what if the tail is short or hooked like Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK? You then have to read the whole body.
In order to snap a picture, EJ waited till Captain Jack was relaxed and almost drifted off to sleep and quickly put a finger at the hooked tail.
A closer look at the hooked tail.
Though drowsy, Captain Jack automatically clawed the bench in an animal instinct safety reflex action.

Yes, Kenggy's tummy is round. She is rotund.
EJ noticed Kenggy always clean herself lying on her back with at least one of her limbs fully stretched in the air like this.
Recently EJ chanced upon a picture of a fitness exercise and thought that exercise move is similar to Kenggy's favourite pose.
It was found out that this 'Bicycle Crunch' move is one of the most effective abdominal exercises as it place emphasis on the obliques. Lie flat on your back (like Kenggy), hold one leg in the air with knee bent so that your other lower leg is parallel to the floor. Place your hands behind your head and contract your abs. Lift your right shoulder off the floor, bringing your right elbow to your left knee while extending your right leg at the same time. Return to your starting position, and repeat on the opposite side.
EJ tried this 'Bicycle Crunch' and was sore at the abdomen the next day.
Well, those who wish to have six-pack abs should try this exercise. Unfortunately Kenggy's always a one-pack!

After year's end monsoon rain, weather gets hotter with less rainfall.
It has been scorchingly hot the last few weeks.
The sweltering heat got to EJ. Rather than blogging last week, EJ preferred to laze under the fan at fullblast.
Wearing permanent fur coats the cats feel the heat more and to make them more comfortable, EJ constantly wet-mop the MeowYard and MeowRoom to try to make it cooler. When the floors are damp, the cats would lie flat fully stretched. As it dries out and get warmer, to beat the heat, they seek out cooler spots. Their favourite is their tiled toilet.
Here's Tanya hogging it with Winnie and Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK undecided whether to cramp in with her.
