Spanning 4 generations from the lady who introduced me to her household and placed in the high traffic most-loved area in the dining hall, I have heard conversations, differences and whispers on world affairs to traditions to hand-me-down secret recipes. There are many tales to tell - for the benefit of her grand children and great grands.

Good Days, Bad Days!
Immediately half sachet of tuna was warmed up with a little water.

She was quiet and lost some weight.

Our human went to the MeowYard to check. All toilet trays were clean and found Winnie in this position waiting.

Our human knows what that meow-call was for. It has been the habitual meow-calls since many years ago after toilet duties. Winnie's late roommates did that special meow-calls too.
Our human was amused when Winnie watched relaxed on the lower tier with crossed paws at the cleaning up. But by the time our human got the handphone, Winnie uncrossed her paws!

A Furry Visitor!
20 September 2020
The vacuum has not been used for years as our late Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK would hiss and swipe at it. Our human would then get down on knees to manually clean.
Yesterday our human decided to use the vacuum to clean the hard to get corners and crevices.
And Winnie's reaction to the vacuum noise?Winnie not bothered as vacuum was not switched on yet.
What's this funny thing with noise?It's getting nearer and noisier!
Winnie walked off and allowed our human clean in peace.

Since March when we had a lockdown due to the virus, our human minimised going out. And only venture out to get essentials at the nearest mini mart.
Though a little relaxed now, our human still take precautions and only goes to get groceries at that same mini mart a walking distance from home.
A new resident cat came to welcome our human but our human (standing with legs apart) was trying to avoid to come in contact with it. That kitty isn't exactly healthy as its fur had some bald patches. Our human was so afraid to carry any disease or sickness it may have back to Winnie.
Stay safe everyone.

The days are still hot.
Our human found Winnie seeking out cool spots and resting in a most unladylike fashion.
Armed with the handphone in stealth mode, our human tried to capture that scene but Winnie's keen hearing picked up the soft clickings. She turned, got up and started to walk towards our human. Photos were blurred.

It's Hot, Hot, Hot!
Weather has been incredibly hot these days. And wearing a permanent fur coat is certainly of no help.
To help cool Winnie in hot afternoons, our human wiped Winnie down with a wet towel and then fine-tooth comb her (black handle of comb can be seen near Winnie).
But Winnie could not wait and proceeded to lick herself probably she felt a little uneasy to have her fur ruffled by our human.

Each time our human comes to the MeowYard to clean, wherever and whatever Winnie is doing (except her toilet duties of course), she will instantly get into this position on her personal scratching pad and observe!
Our human finds it amusing and will always try to do the cleaning chores as long as it takes.

Winnie loves her new resting spot and our human found her holding up one of the support pillars of the hardwood 2-level podium.

New Resting Spot
Wanting to change Winnie's bedding but not wanting to disturb that fussy sleeper, our human left the towelling bedding on the bottom deck.
When our human next came out to the MeowYard to do some cleaning, this was the sight!
