Are Laptops Better than Cat Beds? Your Cat Thinks So

This one’s mine. Said every cat ever. Are you inspired to complete your thesis? Planning to finish writing that long-awaited novel? Or it’s that infernal presentation that your boss has been harping about? Whatever the reason, you brew yourself a hot cup of coffee and fire up the laptop. You’re about to do some serious…

Cats: The Purr-fect Cure for What Ails You.

Did you know… … that many studies have shown how pets can help to reduce stress and even lower blood pressure? I didn’t, at least, not until recently. I sat in the corner of the room my cats live in, cross-legged, and quietly observed them as they routinely padded around their living space. A sniff…

#TGIF Fun Fact: October… Or Should I Say, ‘Octobear’?

Hey everyone, Aren’t you glad that the weekend is finally here? Well, for those who would only see Friday the next day, don’t fret. It will be here. And when it is, you will jump for joy and cheer! Because it means that the weekend is coming and we can all relax and have some…

Cats Ahoy! Brothers, Inseparable.

Despite being the older and bigger resident cat, Loki (our first rescued cat) was the more docile and reserved cat. He didn’t behave like your regular alpha male. He preferred to sit on the floor instead, and leaned against walls with that regal, quiet expression on his face. He minded his own business most of the…

The Perfect Little Brother.

It has been a year and a half since we last adopted our first cat, Loki. When he first came to us, he was a small and timid little cat. Now he’s grown up to be a fat and rather lazy cat. I suppose that’s what all cats are like. Except that he was a…

The Last Kitten Rescue Update

Remember the little one that we plucked right off the middle of a busy residential road? The little kitten we rescued on Father’s Day? Yes, the very same. Just to be clear on what’s been going on, the little one has passed away. She has gone to join her Maker in cat heaven (and maybe…

My Public Holiday Shenanigans.

Weekends and public holidays are meant for our overworked minds to sleep in and wake up later than we normally do on working days. Which was what my husband and I did on Wednesday, 22 June 2016. It was yet another public holiday for Malaysians. We have so many public holidays in our calendar that…

A Cat Rescue Mission on Father’s Day.

Life always dishes out the most unplanned and unexpected events for you, and most of the time, there are no indications on what the events will be about. My husband and I woke up way past noon on Father’s Day. We just wanted something to eat before going to Digital Mall and then come straight…

Reasons Why We Own A Cat.

We never thought that we would actually adopt a cat one day. A friend had rescued him as a stray, had two existing ones of her own, and decided to find an owner for him. When we saw him as a kitten, we fell in love with him and decided to adopt him. I’ve never…

Movie Review: The Jungle Book.

Watching The Jungle Book movie last night brought back so many childhood memories. As a child, I had watched the cartoon over and over again. The man-cub Mowgli surviving in the animal kingdom in the forest with the comical Baloo the bear, the ever-serious Bagheera the black panther, the sneaky Kaa the snake, the vengeful…

Hoofing It.

I have always been a big fan of horses. When I was young, I used to ask my dad to draw horses for me by copying it straight off a book. Once I was able to go horse riding on my own at our annual family vacation spot, my love for equestrian was complete. But…
