Two pigs in the pot...

Howdy again, Folks!

I am writing to you with a dual offering of relief and melancholy. Bad news first:

A friend recently found a kitten abandoned in a flooding drain. After waiting from morning to night to see if perhaps its mother might return to no avail, she decided that her home is afterall big enough for another feline companion. 

Alas, the resident cat did not take to the new addition and despite several weeks on, the war does not seem to be ending anytime soon. So to halt any trauma that might haunt any kittenhood, here’s the SOS message: Would anyone be interested in adopting Kitty, or know anyone who might be interested? Kitty is probably a month or two old. She’s been dewormed and the V.E.T. has given the all-clear with two thumbs up. Anyone who would like to have more details please feel free to leave a message in the comment box and I will be glad to furnish you with more details. In the mean time, here’s more information from the lady:

8 week old female. tortoise shell colour - black with brown bits, three brown paws and one black paw. active, loving, playful, always gets up to mischief and absolutely fearless of my hissing, spitting older cat - it just wants to be friends but resident cat won't have it. 

Healthy appetite, dewormed, eats wet and dry food. purrs constantly, happy to curl up and sleep on or next to you. 

It's really quite adorable. Was hoping my cats would learn to get along or i'd have to give up the little one - which is why i'm looking to do so now. The hostility in the house is driving me nucking futs! hahaha

Now the better news:

MY ACADEMIC YEAR IS OVER!!!!! Woo hoo! \m/ 

I’ve handed in my thesis. 21, 137 words in all after 7 months of blood, sweat and tears. Final exams are over as well and its time to smell the roses and roll with the kitties once more. You know what this also means? BACK TO BLOGGING!!

No more waiting a thousand and one years for updates and random musings of the meaningless kind from The Flyer, for I am now here! Muahahahah! So to get on with it...

What’s been up with 5-Cats, I hear you say? Well, the sister has been busy with preparing for her finals as well. She currently preparing a report/expose on genetic modification in the pet trade, a.k.a. designer pets. From teacup doggies, stunted cats and zebra-horsies, to white lions and tigers and what not, and the untold horrors behind it. I can’t wait to read it when she’s done!

5-Cats and I will also be headed back to the sunny island in a coupla weeks, with me heading home first. I’ve got plans to lend a toe or two to the new sanctuary that should be opening soon (if they’ll have me) and I’ve also gotta find a part time job (ugh!) and some professional volunteer work (will I ever be paid to do what I do?). Also, have got to catch up with the community cats, and this time I promise not to lose the photos and will definitely be putting up profiles on the furlebrities!

For now, I’m gonna unwind a bit with a good scrub and a dabble with clay. See you in a while, feline erotophiles! ;)

Congratulations on finishing your course! What happened to Bombay? I have this blog marked for him. Is he still with you?

=^..^= said...

Thanks, Diamond! :D Bombay was actually adopted a few months back (possibly coming to a year, actually! Has it really been that long?) by a wonderful couple, together with Bangles. 5-Cats Style was just the foster-mum, and I, the foster-godmum! :D

su said... cat hated my new kitten too.. its been 8mths and she still hisses at her but hey are definately getting bettr.

i reccommend u try drugging ur residetn cat with Bach's rescue remedy. its homeopathic so its safe and it really really helped. its supposed to calm u. my kitty even regained all her loss fur which she had bitten off due to stress=) shes no longer on it coz things are better now. it may be difficult to find tho. last i saw was guardian at Plaza Sing=)
