It's Been a Long Time!

Many things have happened since the last post. Mostly happy things (marriage, pregnancy - the works), I am glad to say.

While the thought of writing something comes to my mind each time something life-changing happens, something else will crop up, I will get distracted and the posts I have in mind never quite made it here.

Now that the baby is here, I have more time to stay at home but sadly, dramatically less time for the cats.

Anyhow, some of the cat kids' stories are not so happy though. Keeping the long story short for now:
  1. Shiro escaped through a hole in the window mesh in February last year and gave us all a major heart attack. I was a wreck but thank heavens we found her after a few days.
  2. Mikan's perennial affliction with UTI took a turn for the worse earlier this year, when he developed a urinary blockage and was hospitalised for nearly 2 weeks.
  3. Maggie is such a thin cat right now (despite a hearty appetite), the stress of having 3 cats (Mikan, Becksie and Cutie - sigh) who do not like him must be getting to him.

The other cats are nicely plump, and we have recently done some renovations in the cats' room; installing more shelves along a wall to provide more elevated surfaces, and covering the parquet with rubber tiles so that it is easier to clean.

Shall attempt to elaborate at a later time. I just hope that won't take another few years.
