Gotcha Day Purresent

My Gotcha Day is 31 December but san bought me  this lovely and soft blanket. I really like it and yesterday I spent the whole rainy day on it. My 2 bruffers have theirs and this is mine. I am the only one who sits here (although I sometimes sit on Tanaka’s blanket).

Just Because

Kari asked us if Tanaka’s legs lack strength because of his sedentary lifestyle or age. I think some of it is because he is more sedentary. He used to be on the go all the time. He is 10 and still very active. Adrian thinks that he had never had  to run away from others and so he had used his muscles in a different way - to stalk and prowl. But now suddenly with Rez he has to always be on the lookout and always has to run at sometimes no notice at all and so his muscles are finding it a little difficult to adjust. So he has stiffness and his muscles are ‘jumping’ because of non-use. I had to feel his muscles and they seemed to palpitate. Adrian said it was because of the great amount of stress the muscles are under. But in the long run, they will be better as his muscles would have figured how to move in response to a predator-type stimulus. 

Also when I play with him I have to make sure he does no somersaults on a hard surface so we play more on the bed where he twists and turns and jumps but he will always land on a soft surface to minimalise injury to his joints. We had played like this for a long time as he had stressed his hind legs and hurt them from jumping onto hard surfaces before. 

Nowadays because Rez is always out and about, he sits here, way up from harm. 
Therefore Adrian advised that I make sure Tanaka has some respite from Rezki everyday where he can relax and his body will not always be tight and in fear. I have to put an ice pack on both his hind leg muscle joints so his muscles will ‘open’ up and relax. 
I think he appreciated the very hard massage that Adrian had to give him last Friday as he had presented Adrian with his hind legs to massage and he stayed still and allowed Adrian  to do the necessary manipulations. In a month he has to go back again for osteopathy and Adrian will see if his muscles are less stressed.

Rezki decided  the best place that would show off his good looks was here- in the rec chair. He was right. 

Tonight he decided to sit with me as all the other kitties were resting. 

He also decided that watching tv with me was okay as well. I had to stop him from going into the bedroom to disturb Tanaka as Adrian said Tanaka’s legs were very stressed today at his appointment. He had to massage both the hind legs and it was not the usual stiffness that Tanaka has had before. So Adrian thinks it’s probably due to Tanaka having to always run away from Rez and his muscles as not used to the movement. He advised that I should not allow Rez to run after  Tanaka a lot and it should always be under supervision until Tanaka’s muscles learn the new movements.

Sunday Sleep-in

Both Tanaka and The Chairman decided that Sunday was for sleeping-in and didn’t feel like moving out of bed at all. Silly kitty!

Just Because

Rezki has his own pillow and blanket. Actually the blanket belonged to my rainbow cat Toro but now it belongs to Rezki. It gives me comfort.

Just Because

He spent the whole afternoon here away from Rezki. It’s very hot these few days even though it’s the end of October and we should have had more rain.

Relaxicating on Deepavali

A helping paw

I felt that I had to help san with her work. She was still trying to finish this at this hour. It's already bedtime so I thought if I can hold onto the paper, she would just need to put the red ticks and we can turn in.

Just Because

I told san that she can always take my pikshur but she has to tell me first. It's only fair that she gives me time to compose myself. Here I was just relaxicating and her. We try to do that every afternoon when she comes home from work. Sometimes it's just for 5 minutes , sometimes more.

Just Because

San says she will try to post Just Because pictures of each of us this week as she has not done so for many weeks. San tricked me into looking at her camera by shaking treats. I was quite willing (don't tell san that) as I knew if I do as she wanted I would get crunchy treats in return. Yum!

Look who's coming to dinner

Rezki decided to see if he liked dinner with family. He sat under the table and ate his dinner like any other cat in the house. Popps usually eats dinner in the kitchen but that evening Rezki was there first. Tanaka usually eats by himself in the living room away from others as he eats slowly and gets nervous when so many cats are about.

Today we remember Megat

If there is any such thing as reincarnation we hope that you will have a much happier life when you come back Megat, full of good eats and love.

Best of the week

       Rezki and Popps this morning at the window

               Rezki and Tanaka yesterday

            Rezki and Bujang yesterday afternoon

Everyone is either too fed up to chase him off or Rez is too tired to encourage anyone to play. Whatever it is, he is learning to let go and just get into the family routine.

Relaxicating at home

Yes. I had to be referee yesterday and the boys had a relaxed time on the bed together...before Rez decided to find a more interesting activity elsewhere. I suspected it was to find a hiding place before medicine time as it was nearly 4 in the evening. 4 is medicine time before dinner at 5.

The white on my belleh

See? These are the two white spots on my belleh. I have another one. Only 3 san says.

This is my...

Bed! It is not Rex's bed and should NOT have his scent on it san! 

I had to turn over his bed last night or else he threatened to sleep on my blanket and on my pillows. Rez sat here last night with me as he was on timeout and took a nap on Bujang's bed. When it was time to sleep Bujang just sat up beside his bed for some time and then decided to make himself comfortable on my side of the bed. It was only after I had turned over the bed and gave him my red and white neck pillow to rest against did he go back on his bed to rest. He slept the rest of the night comfortably thank goodness.

Just Because

We'd just brushed his coat the day before and so he is shining under the faint sun rays. He is an all black cat with black whiskers and black paw pads. He has 3 small white spots under his belly which always surprise me every time I see them.

A special family moment

This second picture has everyone in it. Popps was hidden by the scratcher which was a pity. But for a moment I saw that it could possibly happen for us- that all the kitties can have moments of sanity and quiet together in the same space and time.

Rezki at the window

Rezki sat by the window and enjoyed the cool Breeze after rain. There is no way he could have done this if he was still at the carpark so the both of us are properly grateful.

Saturday Silly

                  Big Boss and Mini Boss
Rez stepped on the plastic spikes and settled himself down in the chair. The plastic spikes were there to protect Bujang from him in the first place. He's a cheeky fellow to be sure.
