Cinders is Better, Award Received and Thank You!

Both Kenggy and Pebble always stay nearby to keep Cinders company when she crawls in to rest in this bottom-most cubicle in the cat condo.

Last Saturday EJ felt a wave of panic when Cinders was not sleeping in her usual cubicle. She sleeps here because she cannot jump (arthritis suspected as well; part of her supplement has chitosan).

EJ went round looking and found her fast asleep on the podium where her roommates usually hang out. 

This meant that Cinders is feeling much better to be able to move up and down.

She has even started to clean and groom herself though a little clumsy and ungraceful but who cares as long as she is well enough to do it!

Oh, we received an award from our friends, Tillie and Georgia, Tiger,Treasure and JJ.
“Liebster” means dear, dearest, favorite or beloved in German.  
The requirements of receiving the award are to link back to who gave it to you, paste the Award on your blog, then choose 5 of your favorite blogs to pass the award on to that are up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers, let them know by leaving a comment on their blog and hope that the 5 blogs chosen will keep on spreading the love by passing the award on to 5 more blogs.

We are bending the rules of this award a wee bit and would like to give it to all our friends for visiting us and giving so many encouraging, comforting words and purrs. 
It's our way of saying 'Thank You'. So please don't be shy, just help yourself to this award.

Procrastination Breeds Innovation?

Few years ago, before EJ got lazy, the tiny Christmas tree was put up with full trimmings and blinking lightings.

Then procrastination struck!

The Christmas tree with all those trimmings stayed through the New Year and beyond.

When the Lunar New Year approached, instead of taking down and packing them away, EJ decided to decorate it with Lunar New Year trimmings like these mini red laterns and pink plastic Plum flowers.

Well, it did look rather cute, didn't it?

On behalf of EJ and the kitties, we wish all who celebrate this Lunar New Year of the Water Dragon, PROSPERITY, GOOD HEALTH and HAPPINESS always.

Slow Walking

Cinders vomited! She was miserable and weak. It was more than a week ago.

She refused to eat or drink. On top of that, she was behaving strangely. EJ promptly made an appointment with the vet for the next day.

Cinders lost 10 percent of her body weight which was not a good sign. After EJ explained her strange behaviour, her vet checked her thoroughly including her eyes. 

There is totally no vision in her right eye while her left eye could make out light and shadows. This explains Cinders' slow walk, plodding along walls as well as in circles. Her vet said there is nothing much we can do except to continue her usual medications/supplements, observe and make her as happy and comfortable as possible.

On reaching home, Cinders wanted to eat not the usual wet food but kibbles only. She even refused to eat her favourite steamed shredded chicken breast meat which EJ bought it raw from the wet market.

EJ laughed out loud when Cinders shoved her head into Kenggy's food bowl and started eating. Kenggy, shocked at that behaviour, just stood wide-eyeing Cinders munching away. (EJ do not know but love to visualise mentally that Kenggy's jaw dropped as well!)

Glutton Kenggy always do this to others and none has done this to her.

Cinders now has put on a bit of weight and EJ is keeping a close watch on her.

Squirrel Came a-Visiting?

Before EJ get rid of any box, permission has to be obtained from the cats.

And was rather surprised to see this!
A giant squirrel came a-visiting?

No, it was Pebble checking out the box before giving her permission for disposal.

Our Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK found it a rather cosy spot to rest in and took several days to decide.
