cat purrday friday post: my fascinator

Hello my furfriends. Mum has been so busy attending to Queenie’s needs. He still needs to take his medicines until end of October. Inspite of that mum still has time to play with me … One time we mum played with my pink feather cat toy. Nope, mum did not let me chase it, instead she made fun of me but i think in a cute way.

Hmm… okay.. love the feathers but does it look good on me?

weekly photo challenge: dreamy

My cattleya orchids are all in bloom. I am always drawn to them and could not resist taking photos.

And then it started to drizzle … i love the rain droplets on petals … like crystal beads that roll gently as the wind blows.

Updates on Queenie:

It was tiring and hectic and stressful the previous week. I was super busy hence i have no time to post and visit blogs. My mom’s cat Queenie was back at the vet last week due to some sores again in his mouth because of his auto-immune disease. He (yes, he’s a HE) was confined for 3 days because he needed IV fluids for hydration and shots of steroids and antibiotics. My mom is having a hard time in caring for him so Queenie is now staying with me. Other than his auto-immune disease, his liver test reading is also slightly elevated. Right now, he has 4 different kinds of medicines… prednisone (steroid), doxyvet (anti-infective), immunol (for immunity) and liverolin (appetizer, immune enhancer and to promote healthy liver). It really takes a lot of patience caring for a special needs cat. So far, he eats well and drinks a lot.

Queenie (older photo)

After all that Queenie has been through, i admire his strong will to live and survive. He is such a sweet boy and i will do my best to give him a good quality of life. He will be back at the vet after two weeks for a recheck.

 

weekly photo challenge: endurance

Only Star could endure going up the door among all my kitties. She is the most adventurous and could stay there for a long period of time. She could even take a short nap up there too. If you’re wondering how she could go up there, she uses the screen door and crawl up until she reaches the top of the door. How? click here for photos.

Would you believe that this cat condo box is almost 6 months old? I made this box last April. I wanted to replace this but this has been one of Tiger’s favorite spots. It has endured a lot of scratching, bites and rough plays, trampled upon and yet he still loves to sleep in it.

happy tummy rubs

Hi everyone.. Here are my entries to the Weekly TRT Photo Challenge.

Star just can’t tolerate belly rubs longer than 2 seconds.

Tiger on the other hand accepts some and i know just when to stop scratching his tummy.

Boots is the most patient kitty in the world. He is able to tolerate lots and lots of belly rubs and never gets angry about it.

a word a week photo challenge: window

Blissful Moment

looking out the window
i see droplets of rain
like tears
gentle rays of sunshine
forces its way
a blissful moment

window

Above photo was taken outside of a restaurant. I love the effect of flowing water on the glass. It resulted to a blurry photo but it turned out to be a nice work of art.

We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today. – Dale Carnegie

Star (3 months old) looking out the window

While i was busy looking at my flowers outside the window, Star was busy watching birds instead. For an indoor cat, windows are their connection to the outside world.

catpurrday friday post: a feral kitty named Trico

Hi everyone.. kittycat Star here. I know it’s already Saturday and mum was late in posting my cat purrday friday post. She has been busy but i promise you it was for a good cause.

Star

You see, mum has been feeding 5 sometimes 6 neighborhood kitties. Oh yes they have names. They are Big Mama (gingercat), Big Boy (orange and white male cat), Linggit (mostly white with orange tail male cat), Trico (calico female cat), Potty (ginger male cat) and Junior (white with black ears and tail male cat). Potty is one of the kitties dumped in the vacant lot and Junior is an on-off visitor during feeding time. No, i don’t get jealous if i see mum feeding other cats. She says she couldn’t stand hungry kitties. You know i think mum has a cat magnet. All the kitties that she feeds outside are aloof and frightened but except for mum. She could touch them and pet them and they even comes over when mum is calling their names. I think they all trusted mum because they all know that she is the lady with the food. 

Now the good news. The other day, mum brought Trico at the vet and she has been spayed. Yey!

Trico,  is a calico or a tricolored cat and is the 3rd generation of kitties of Big Mama. When mum found out she’s on heat, she immediately planned on having her spayed. Here’s a photo of Trico when she arrived home from the vet. Mum kept her overnight before she was let out of the cat carrier. Right now, i think Trico is doing fine, she’s eating well and the spaying stitch is looking good.

While me and mum is busy doing this post i saw my sibling Tiger asleep on the kitty bed at the cat condo. He really loves to take naps.

My boyfriend Boots is on the floor and begging for mum’s attention so he rolls over like crazy. I just love it when he does that, he looks gorgeous and cute with those big eyes.

That’s all for now. Have a wonderful weekend kitties. Til next Friday for my next cat purrday post. See y’all.

Sweet hugs and purr,
kittycat Star

 

a word a week photo challenge: technology

The other night while i was busy reading blogs, my kittycat Star was in a hyper mode. She was running crazily, chasing i-don’t-know-what-it-is up to the point that she even ran on top of me while i was in bed seated in front of my laptop. So, i decided to search a video on You Tube that she could watch to make her sit still. I found a video of birds feeding happily and noisily at a bird feeder.

Star

Success! She is finally settled and i kept her entertained. Well that’s how TECHNOLOGY works for me and Star.

cat purrday friday post: this box is mine

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

20131120_201534a

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

transform2

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

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.

Happy Friday everyone!
