christmas 2017

From my family and furmily,

 

Marwind, a german shepherd who will soon turn 3yrs
Rafraf, a native local aspin dog that i adopted from the province. He is 2yrs old.
Tobi, a shitzu who just turned 5yrs
Kristina, my very first pet who is already 11 yrs old. Don’t let her age fool you, she is still a puppy at heart.
Star, (white persian cat; middle photo) my princess… my first cat. She will be turning 6 yrs at the end of 2017.
Boots, (gray persian cat) a foster fail.
Tiger, (white and orange cat) my 2nd cat. I adopted him from the shelter to be Star’s playmate. I just celebrated his 5th year adoptversary last October 2017.
Kuting, (gingercat) previously one of the outside cats that i feed but made him an indoor cat because he is just too sweet to be an outside cat.
Ashton, (tabby) i rescued him last 2015 as a teeny-weeny kitten fitting the palm of my hand. Now, he is a big boy who loves to eat.
Goldie, (black cat) a rescue. From a skinny, baldy, hungry, scarred cat he turned out to be a beautiful cat and i was surprised that he actually has semi-long coat.
Puti, (first photo) my special needs cat. Because she is deaf, sometimes her meows are so funny.

Also, from my outside cats (last photo),

Big Mama, Big Boy, Trico, TepTep and Lily.

and………………………..  lastly from AKI, a brand-new addition to my furmily. As in super brand-new as he just arrived at this very moment,

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Side Story:  While doing this post my son arrived home and surprised me with a new kitty…  his Christmas gift to me. Oh my gosh, truly unexpected and i cried with joy.. Here he is… AKI, a cute addition to my big furmily. Welcome home sweet baby.

 

Peace, Love and Happiness to all.

meet the new addition to my furmily

My About page contained just a snippet about myself but a lot about my furfamily. I guess that’s how crazy pet parents are. I have two new doggies. When my beloved Johnny (a german shepherd) passed last May 2014 i was not in a hurry to find another dog. It took nine months before i began searching for another dog who will not only be a loyal friend but also a loyal guardian of the house. So, in February 2015 i got Marwind. He is now a big and handsome dog at only a little over a year old.

When we visited our relatives in the province, we got Marwind a playmate, a typical Aspin or local dog and i named him Raf-raf. He is such a goofy and playful dog. Today, he is about a year old now. Marwind and Raf-raf are the best buds and are partners in crime as they both love to wreck my potted plants and chew on almost anything they could find. Today, almost all my plants are eradicated by these two mischievous dogs hence no more plants to chew on. But still i love these guys.

And here’s a photo of Marwind on the day he went home with us from the breeder. A cute and tiny pup who is now more than 30 kilos and still growing.

There are also two new kitties that i rescued. Meet Ashton. I found him at the memorial park when i visited my brother’s place of rest. He is so tiny and thin that he fits on my palm. He is so wet as it has been raining during that day. I just couldn’t stand leaving him there all alone because i knew he would not survive on that place. Even if i already have a lot of cats in my home i just need to rescue him. So i scooped him up and put him in a paper bag. After a lot of TLC’s and medications for diarrhea, colds and swollen eye he is finally healthy. He has grown and gained a lot of weight and is now happily neutered.

And then came Kuting-kuting (kuting is kitten in English), a Puspin or a local domestic short haired cat. This kitty is also a rescue. Early last year, i’ve been noticing him outside at the vacant lot in from of my house for about a day and the next day he just came inside and joined the group of cats that i regularly feed. He must be really hungry. I noticed that he is a sweet kitty, actually the sweetest among the strays that i took in. He is very calm and doesn’t hiss. The group of cats that i feed (8 cats) all started as wild and they hiss. Today, i could touch and pet them and they know their names. But Kuting-kuting is different. He is sweet since the first day i took him in.

One day, i noticed a wound on his tail. I am so sure that he was bullied by another cat. I treated the wound and several days passed i noticed it has healed or so i thought. Although it is healed, the end part of his tail has died. So off to the vet we went. The vet prescribed antibiotics and after three days he was scheduled for tail docking to remove the dead part of his tail. Yes, he was also neutered. Here’s Kuting-kuting now, about a year old, a happy and healthy cat and now an indoor cat. Sigh! i now have 5 indoor cats. Oh well, for the love of cats.
