too colorful to eat

I haven’t blogged in ages… Luckily for today i have some spare time and be e-connected again. I am super busy the past weeks in supervising the renovation of my parents’ house. Not an easy task in choosing, ordering, buying and monitoring of construction materials down to the smallest details.

Tired and in need of some sugar rush, i picked up a box of baby donuts on my way home. TINY 24 bite size pieces that are too gorgeous and too colorful to eat.

With a happy tummy, now i could relax beside my sleepy princess Star.

Have an awesome weekend!

leis

My week has been hectic but yesterday afternoon with a SPARE time on my hand, i picked a lot of flower buds in my garden and made leis. Afternoon is the best time to pick these buds as they open up at night and gives out its sweet delightful scent.

Dainty little buds…

Sampaguita also known as Philippine jasmine is the EPITOME of beauty and elegant fragrance. More than a national flower, it is often used as garlands and corsage during graduation ceremonies and in welcoming guests as well as adornments and offerings for the altar and other religious festivities. It’s pure white color (a NEUTRAL color) symbolizes peace and purity.

And speaking of pure white… sharing with you a photo of Star as white as snow.

Happy Sunday 🙂

extremely dazzling

There’s no better way to describe Star’s eyes but DAZZLING … extremely dazzling.

I got Star from a breeder. Yes i know, i am guilty of pet shopping. It is because of my dream of having an all white long-haired oddeyed cat. Dream fulfilled, i then visited a shelter so i could adopt a playmate for her. I wanted to do my part to open my home to a rescued cat and i went home with Tiger, a neutered domestic short hair ginger local cat.  Just a short background about Tiger… he is one of the 7 litter of kitties in a sack dumped at the shelter.

I thought i would only have 2 cats. Oh how wrong i was. My family of cats expanded as i took in more rescues and even a foster. I also have a family of outside cats that i regularly feed and take care of.

Yesterday, i heard a pitiful cry of a kitten. I knew that it belonged to a neighbor who has been feeding the mama cat. Good thing that when i woke up this morning i am not hearing any kitty crying. It always breaks my heart whenever i see helpless kitties. If only i have the means, money and the time i would scoop up all the strays in the neighborhood for spaying and neutering. Sadly, spaying and neutering is not the popular option and it seems like nobody cares. My son told me the other day that i am the only person that he knew in the neighborhood who has outside cats that are spayed. But of course i wouldn’t want my 6 outside cats to multiply as it takes time, effort and money to feed and care for them.

I used to have 8 outside cats, one became an indoor cat and the other one hasn’t come home for about 3 months now. He always comes home during feeding time and sometimes he even stays longer as i see him taking a nap at the terrace. I still think about that cat all the time. But during one visit to the vet it made me realized that he wouldn’t be coming home ever because the vet told me that he is having a hard time convincing the homeowners association to have a TNR in their village which is just adjacent to ours. What the association did was they hauled all the strays and brought them to the pound. I remembered my one outside cat who hasn’t come home and maybe he was one of those that has been caught. He always comes home and never been absent every feeding time. The chances of seeing him again is dim. I know that strays brought at the pound will not have a chance on life. I still miss that sweet cat that i named Linggit.

cat purrday friday post: this box is mine

Hi dear friends. Can you guess the real owner of the big blue box?

20131120_201542a20131120_201607a20131120_205159a

20131120_205346aIf you guessed Boots, you are correct. Well actually the box is really for Boots. Mum bought this box so Boots could use it as his own litter box. I have my own and it’s colored green. Tiger has his own too and it’s yellow. Both are covered and with flapping doors. I love mine cause you know it gives me some privacy. You see, Boots don’t like covered litter boxes. Silly boy, he doesn’t even know how to use the flapping door. 

Wishing everyone a nice weekend and i hope i made you smile today.

Warm hugs and kitty kisses

cat purrday friday post: popular hashtags on social media

Hello sweeties! It’s Friday once again and it’s time for my cat purrday Friday post. I bet most of you are into Instagram or Twitter like me so you are all familiar with this thing called Hashtag. A hashtag on social media sites is a word or phrase preceded by a hash or pound sign (#) and used to identify messages on a specific topic. The following are examples of popular hashtags. Others are for humans but well, since this is a cat post i will definitely use the hashtag for kitties cause seems applicable to us too, right? Actually, you could make everyday a cat day post by using these hashtags. Here goes:

#MeowMonday – share your funniest and the cutest photo of yourself.

Star #MeowMonday

Star #MeowMonday

#TacoTongueTuesday (#TTT) or #TransformationTuesday – share photo with that itty-bitty-tongue sticking out or show photo about your transformation.

Tiger #TacoTongueTuesday

Tiger’s first day at home and Tiger today. He’s almost occupying the whole kitty bed at the cat condo. He used to be a teeny-weeny shrimp. #TransformationTuesday

#WhiskerWednesday – share photo  to show your whiskers.

Boots' whiskers #WhiskerWednesday

#ThrowbackThursday (#TBT) – show photo of yourself when you were just a kitty.

Star at 2 months. #ThrowbackThursday

#GoodNewsFriday – show photo about all things good that are happening with you right now. For example, have you been a good and nice kitty lately?

Star

Star… i did not jump on mum’s keypad today, is it okay to loaf on your laptop mum while you’re not using it?’ #GoodNewsFriday

Star has this habit of jumping on my keypad while i’m typing on my laptop making a mess of the screen and sometimes finding it hard to return the laptop screen to normal mode. – mum

#Caturday – this is similar to #MeowMonday but usually texts are written on photo thus creating a cat meme.

One of Star’s favorite hangout is on top of the stereo. That’s where i put my favorite stuffed toys but almost always i see them on the floor. Did you notice my new header? That’s how it is supposed to look like. – mum

#SelfieSunday – this is easy, just share a photo of your catself doing the most gorgeous pose wearing the most adorable smile.

cat purrday friday post: Tiger’s crib

Hello my dearest friends. I just love Fridays. Well, today i would be telling you about the new crib. Mum bought this at the petfood and supplies store for less than P40.00 or less than a dollar. So cheap isn’t it. You know this crib is really not meant for cats. Yup, that’s right… not for cats. But when mum saw these cribs hanging at the store she thought it could make an awesome kitty bed. Of course mum’s right as this has been one of my siblings Tiger’s favorite place to sleep. Did i just say that this is not for cats? I’ll tell you a secret. This is actually for hens… it’s a nest. Usually, some hays are put inside which makes for a good bedding for hens to lay eggs. Anyway, it’s now called the cat’s nest from now on or shall i say Tiger’s crib. Oh by the way, the crib is actually comfy. It is made of handwoven bamboo sheets, lightweight and most of all it really fits the cat cause we kitties really love to curl. 

Tiger

If Tiger is not around, you could find me in the cat’s nest too but please don’t tell Tiger.

That’s all for now. Wishing everyone a very nice weekend.

Lots of kitty hugs and kisses,
