Snoozle-Bug Fluffs

The monsoon started last week. It's been raining every day which is great as all the fires the farmers set to burn down the forests in Indonesia and Malaysia have been doused. We saw the morning sun for the first time last week in ages!

The cats are quite enjoying the rain.

Au takes it in turn to snooze in his downstairs and upstairs boxes. His outside box got drenched and has to be replaced. His majesty's ears were set back with displeasure when he realised this morning I haven't been able to set up a new one yet so I'd better hop to it tomorrow.

Target decided he wants to be a bed pig. He spent all of yesterday in bed and has been in bed since 6AM today. When I walk in, he wakens, shows me his tummy, and yawns luxuriously. I call him my little snoozle bug fluff while I pet him, both of which he adores. It's just as well nobody can see or hear us; it could kill a diabetic.

One good thing though is that as Target has no intention of getting up, I have no intention of making the bed. Now we're both winners!

Katz Tales is out in the print version of The Star tomorrow. Check it out and read all about Tam's visit to the vet, and a new cat I meet called Za who is up for adoption.

Za (pictured left) is cute, lively, very friendly and looking for a good home. She's staying with Naemah who was Target's foster mum. If you are in Malaysia and want to adopt her, buy tomorrow's newspaper for details.

Ee Lynn is also looking for a home for three adorable kittens nicknamed the Mouseketeers. Check them out at her blog.

If you're looking for dogs, check out these pages: one and two.

In the meantime, here are some great resources about cat inoculations:

This is a great excuse for not making the bed. Wonder if it will work at my house? Probably not, just the kids would be able to use it. Even though Sassie sleeps on my bed and not theirs!

A monsoon! I love the rain! But it hasn't rained here in this part of California since April!

Oops! Wanted to say that Za gets adopted! Nice photos!

Is that Target's big yawn? Haha! We love it.

Za looks like a cutie, we hope she finds a furever home quickly. The Mouseketeers too!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

I think someone may be a bit bored by all the rain!

it's been raining day and night right now. Hope the cats and humans have a lot of good time snoozing or lepaking at home while it rains outside.

Nothing better to do when it's raining but to nap! We hope Za finds a furever home soon!

Thank you so much for the shoutout for Tabitha and Rafferty, dear Ellen! Really appreciate it. Am thinking of bringing them home from the SPCA for a bit to help them get bigger and stronger again. They became really skinny after 2 weeks at the SPCA, it just breaks my heart.

Za is beautiful, like a younger version of my Shadow. I really hope she finds a home, too. Plus the doggies. If people neutered their animal companions and treat them as family members and friends-for-life, we wouldn't have the problem of trying to rehome so many.

Please get a new box for Au ASAP. I will try to get sturdy big ones for him too. Target is simply adorable! So manja. Both of you are so funny! I do syrupy-sweet talk with my furbabies too.

Oh dear. Looking at the photo of Target yawn makes me all yawny and sleepy.

We need your rain here. I think everyone close to the burned area are getting "preparedness" meetings. The dryness and the hot temperature is not helping solve the situation. I heard about the fires in Malaysia and Indonesia. We just have to take care....P.S. What a cute description of "bed pig", ours is one...

Thank you for visiting my 500 post, kitties! It's nice to meet you!

Je kunt in ieder geval genieten van iets koele temperaturen :)
En de katten genieten er ook van !!
groetjes en een fijn weekend :)

We're glad the fires are out! And we love the photo of Target. (Our mom uses the excuse "Dobby is sleeping" almost every day so she doesn't have to make the bed.)

Sending big purrs to Za and the other cats and dogs who need homes.

We are going to get some rain tomorrow, but it won't be a monsoon, that kind of sounds neat.

All of us kitties in my family were strays before they came to live with my mom and dad. Madison and Cecilia are still a bit feral, meaning they still have a wee bit of that wild streak in them. Cecilia has it more than Madison, but he's much older now and he was more skittish when he was a young mancat. They try and post every Friday, but sometimes someone else in the family takes over.

I love the picture of the big yawn. I have a picture somewhere on my blog of my chihuahua yawning.

The cat you liked on my blog is Marshmellow. He was left in a park to fend for himself when he was just a baby.

Our sky seems to be holding its fist tight as to withholding the rain. It is only showing us some threats but would never let go its tears from above. Night rain or early morning shower was never enough in the last few days.

Anyway, sounds like you are a full time feline journo promoting homeless gorgeous cats. With my experience, when they are properly trained and tamed, they do make loyal pets and valuable companions.

Thanks for the visit. :)

i love the way cats look at you and slowly blink and yawn...

there is just something so endearing about it!!!

i'm hating the rain quite a bit... i can't go out trekking with my uni mates...

lol... it's a nice change from the haze, just that i don't want it to be wet every single day...
