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…

A Joyride in the City.

Just a short post today, detailing our joyride within Petaling Jaya last night after dinner. For my husband and I, it is a daily challenge to head back home after office hours because both main highways that we take to go home are always clogged with cars. It would take us hours before we would…

Happy National Cat Day!

The only downside to celebrating these National and International Something or Other Days is that Malaysia is always a day ahead of the United States, so whatever National or International Celebrated Day will always and only be known about the following day. The only way to overcome this is to constantly check the calendar on…

You Can’t “Flea” From It.

Disclaimer: Due to the excessive graphic illustrations of fleas and flea bites, I have decided not to upload an image for the following post, for concerns of shock upon viewing it. Also, I don’t particularly like seeing such horrible things on my WordPress blog. But I hope you enjoy the post anyway 😀 I hope…

A Visit to the Vet.

Having a pet is the most wonderful thing in your life, because now you have something to share your happiness with (not so much your food since pets don’t normally eat human food) and technically, your life with too. But the problem starts when you want to go on a holiday. For those staying with…

Growing Up Pains.

Here’s yet another short blog post dedicated to my cat, Loki. We have no idea what breed he is since he was a rescued kitty. Probably a mix breed considering that his mother was a stray cat herself. We have no idea what happened to his brothers and sisters either. Hopefully they were rescued and…

Tickling His Fancy.

My cat is a male but he’s still four months old. He’s not small anymore, and he’s growing up fast. Which means his appetite is growing too. And so are his energy and capability to last throughout the day. At first, my husband and I were unable to provide proper cat toys for him so…

Have Kids or Keep Cats?

I have only been married for a little more than a year and our second anniversary is in five months’ time. But it doesn’t stop relatives and friends from asking us the magic (and annoying) question: “When are you having kids?” To be fair, it’s not a crime to ask me that. To be honest,…

Cat Cuddle Sessions.

It has always been a trend I noticed with my cat. Once he’s out of his room, he would dash from one end of the condo to the other end as if being chased. He enjoys sneaking up to our washing machine to investigate the strange noises coming from it. Or he would try to…

Time for a Catnap.

A cat’s cozy corner can come in many forms, and usually depends on where it will want to be if it decides to sleep too. It can be under a wooden stool that is partially in the sun. Or it can be found wedged between a door and the wall. Or it can be between…

Permission: Yes or No?

In those days, when I wanted something, or to go somewhere, or see someone, I always had to ask my parents for permission. If I wanted to go out with some friends, I’d have to ask my mum. If I needed a new pair of jeans, I’d have to ask mum. If I was seeing…
