How To Beg For Treats

How To Beg For Food Tutorial
give most pitiful & jialat face in the whole wide world

Do a SIT-UP!

if u dun get foodie, imagine you're eatin it.
that's a consolation.
if u score... good for u! u'll be makin the exact same face too. *slurps*

grumble & whine for more from your slave.
remember to grumble like a machine gun at work
till the cam can't capture ur mouth clearly.

end off wit the super cutest angelic look to make
the slaves feel super guilty for either
not giving u or not giving MORE.

after that, go disturb big jie-jie to vent anger & possibly snatch
the bed - that would be a super bonus.

to do that (a 2 year old attempting to bully a 11 yr old)
u gotta be super lean, swift, agile & silent like a super ninja
(observe my ninja balancing moves)! super ninja-ish til the super cam can't even capture u well.
but... that's another story... for another time.

WTF? i got bullied again

2012's CNY

Happy Dragon Year to everyone and may the new year bring health & happiness to all. All was well and Mom bathed Lauryn early in the morning too before Mom's bro's family came over. Lauryn was happily barking at everyone including the lil' niece. Unfortunately, Lauryn had a fit occurance on 24012012 at 0020 hours. She had never had fits before in the past 10 years. It was a really traumatic experience for Mom & Dad... the fit lasted about a lil' more than 5 minutes and she took about 10 minutes to recover from it. She couldn't stand initially, head was also falling backwards. Although she was already up and running normally as though nothing happened (dogs actually don't know that they're going through a fit), Mom thought it'd be good to still go to a vet.

When they reached the vet, Lauryn was already very alert & active. Mom googled and thought it could be a neurological problem and asked the vet about it. The vet checked her ears, eyes, coordination movements etc and mentioned that it could be possible as sometimes with age, blood flow to the brain would not be as smooth. He looked at her bloodwork results from Oct 2011 & thought all was well so Mom & Dad were told to monitor her. If it happens again within 2 weeks then some other tests would be needed (ie a brain scan). Otherwise if it happens in like once a month or a year... just calmly let her go through the fit. No meds were given since it's the first time. He did insist that she's already very old and things like that are bound to happen. But we really don't think she's old at all seeing how she behaves everyday and ppl guessin' her being only half her age.

Lauryn's all well now and we pray it'll never happen again... or even if it does... that it's nothing major. One of Mom's friends in Facebook mentioned whether it could be vestibular syndrome.

On a happier note, on 25012012, a day after Lauryn's incident, Mom brought us out at midnight for some chilling out! We hope all of you had a great CNY! Gong Hei Fat Choy!

Sister Cat's Spay (and her 3 stillborns)

Sister cat was scheduled to have her abortion + spay on 18012012 and Mom brought her back on 08012012 since she was afraid that she can't find her before the appointment date.

Sadly... Mom and Dad came home to a VERY bloody sight on the night of 13012011 (it was also Friday the 13th!). Dried blood was all over the floor and they found a stillborn with sister Cat layin' near it. She's always very gd natured but turned aggressive when her stillborn was cleared away.

The next night, they found two more stillborns hidden away from sight behind some cupboards which were missed the night before. Sister Cat's temperament had already went back to normal by then.

Sigh... what a traumatized incident it was for both Sister Cat and Mom & Dad... Sister Cat must have felt so confused and sad at the same time. Mom said she almost fainted from the sight of all the blood and the stillborns that Dad had to do all the cleaning up. Then Mom also lost her appetite for awhile because she can't get the bloody raw image off her mind... and it also took her alota courage to snap a pix of it... but for what...? I dunno... I think Mom just likes to take pix of both good and bad stuff so that one day she'll be able to look through them all...

Mom googled & read that cats can have several mates. Sometimes, after they give birth to stillborns, they can still give birth to a bunch of healthy kittens a couple of days or so later. But that didn't happen to Sister Cat... 3 stillborns and that was it. She also had a swollen uterus during her spay due to her miscarriage... so she was released a day later.

this was her in the bloody room after givin' birth

poor thing and very confused...

one of the three stillborns =[

Ginger Cat's Abortion And Spay

Happy New Year to all our readers! We hope 2012 will be a kinder year for all animals & may you fulfill all your new year resolutions as well.

This will also be our 301th post on the first day of 2012 since our 1st post in March 2007!

On New Year's Day this mornin', our humans released a ginger cat after her abortion and spay. They had booked a stray sterilization slot (on 30122011) with the vet's some time ago and the night before, they found her with a bulgin' stomach. So they chose her for this session and brought her home.

Sterilization cost for a female stray cat is S$30 and the abortion cost was an extra S$10 (booked under CWS). Coincidentally the lady after Mom at the vet's had a pregnant stray cat with her too! She opted for an abortion + sterilization as well. It's sad, but it's for the better as we can't keep track on all the kittens & get them all sterilized when they're older as some of them may move on to other territories of their own or end up being too elusive for us. This is the 2nd time Mom's aborted & spayed a stray animal... the 1st one was Gigi the Jack Russell Terrier and luckily for her, she's found a good forever home.

Mom kept ginger kitty for a couple of days before releasin' her. She's ok & recovered pretty fast overall but they suspect that she may be havin' some underlyin' health issues because of her excessive drinkin' of water.

Anyways here's the set of pictures of the beautiful her. She has a somewhat flatter face compared to the typical Domestic Short Hair (DSH) cats... very tame & affectionate as well. Before bringin' her back, Mom sat down to play with her a lil' & guess what! She walked right in front of the crate & nudged at the door. Mom opened it & she walked right into it settlin' down comfortably. After her surgeries, she ate & again, went back right into the crate on her own to rest.
