Repost Friday: House Arrest

House Arrest

kuching cat city
We went to Kuching in Sarawak, Borneo for two days this week to attend the wedding (Hi Dylan and Felicia!). As usual we had a ball. Kuching really is one of Asia's finest destinations.

While we were there, Scoop and Au were under the care of our neighbour Lillian whom they love. She spoils them rotten and they bully her unmercifully.

Although we were away for a very short time, both cats rushed out to greet us when we came back, and acted as though we had been gone for a year.

They're now policing our every move, just in case we disappear again.

Scoop is downstairs, snoozing on his chair by the front door while Au is upstairs keeping an eye on Tom in the office.

I think we're under house arrest.

PS "Kuching" means "cat" in Malay. Kuching city has taken the nickname Cat City and has decorated town squares etc with big cat statues. Here are the fishing cat family that stand in front of Sarawak Plaza...

The kitties didn't want to lose you. LOL! Did you visit the cat museum?

I'm sure Au would let up on the house arrest if you told him you've run out of roast chicken!

Here the weather is not so good, it's raining a lot, it's also cold outside, so that it's time to be inside the blanket and take long naps.
Happy weekend for you all

OMG! Kuching is awesome! Au, next time, make sure your mummy takes you there. Or else, put her under house arrest again. purrr...meow!

Hannah and Lucy said...

These humans aren't to be trusted -our mum always says "won't be long" when she goes out but she's gone for hours and hours.
Mum here - I'm perhaps gone about half an hour!!
