The GIGANTIC Litter Box

When the kids were small we had them share three litter box but some people (namely Alexander and Victoria II) doesn't know how to do their job properly, every time there would be litter sand all around the bathroom making it difficult for us to clean. Gabby to would sometime do her thing outside the box because it had somehow become to small for her. 


It's 1/4 the Size of the Bathroom

So as a solution, we bought a really GIGANTIC litter box, not from the pet shop (they don't have this kind, really) but from the local plastic-ware shop near KL zoo. It has costs us RM70 and everyone now shares this huge poo-poo box happily ever after.

I wonder if they get any bigger (not impossible especially for Napoleon) would we need to build a pool-sized litter box in the batroom instead?

Constantine...A FEMALE!!!

Ok, setelah sekian lama delay nak hantar si Constantine sunat, finally last Saturday, me and Syah went to DBKL Vet kat Setapak. Setelah semalaman dikurung dalam bilik reading, si Constantine nih mesti pelik tetiba kena bawak keluar. Tak pernah keluar rumah la katakan..Setibanya di vet tuh, kitorang drop Constantine dan pergi breakfast kat Jusco. 
Dalam pukul 12.00, we went back to the vet to pick up si kecik nih. Tiba2, the doctor tuh bagitau yang si Constantine nih rupanya female.. Hehehehe.. Terkejut kejap. Mana taknya, amik masa kecik tak nampak apa2 pun lagik, then bila dia besar sket, dah penuh bulu tutup satu badan. Tapi takpa, Constantine tetap menjadi antara kucing kesayangan kami. So, bila dah bawak balik, since dia kena bius, masa utk amik gambo la.. Hehehehehe...



Love,
Ayah from His Blog

Constantine - A Lady?!!??

We have over a year thought and treated our youngest Constantine as a boy but when we took him (her) to the DBKL - SPCA Neuter Clinic in Setapak recently we were told that he (she) is indeed a LADY!


We were both surprised but it is rather too late to make any changes to her name so Ayah had dubbed her as Miss Constantine or simple Che Constantine in Malay. Wakakak we have another daughter eh? Well, don;t blame it on us, Abah though he saw a pair of testicles when Miss Constantine was a kitten and now, being that furry, no one could actually see what's underneath the coat of thick persian fur.


Sorry girl for mistreating you as a different gender hehehe...


Here's a video of Miss Constantine after the surgery, still confused and under the influence of anesthethics.

Pet Population Control
Thousands of stray pets face euthanasia monthly or are suffering on the streets so, please spay your pets and help prevent this problem.

Health Benefits
Females
  • Decreases the risk of mammary tumors (breast cancer)
  • Eliminates the risk of uterine infections (pyometra)
  • Reduces the risk of TVT (Transmissable Venereal Tumour), a sexually transmitted cancer

Myths and Facts about Spaying and Neutering Your Cats/Dogs

Got this fact sheet from the DBKL - SPCA's Neuter clinic recently. Would love to share this with pet owners wherever you are. It is indeed very important to control the pet population, otherwise we'll keep seeing stray cats and dogs being discarded like garbage and end up in foodcourts around us. When they are stray, they are exposed to many health threats and the danger of being run over by cars. Pity these animals.


If my pet is spayed/neutered...

Myth: My pet will get fat an
d lazy.
Fact: The truth is that most pets get fat and lazy because their owners feed them too much and don't give them enough exercise.

Myth: It's better to have one little first.
Fact: Medical evidance indicates just the opposite. In fact, the evidence shows that females spayed before their first heat are typically healthier. Many veterinarians now sterilize dogs and cats as young as eight weeks of age. Do check with your vet for the appropriate time for these procedures.

Myth: My children should experience the miracle of brith.
Fact: Even if children are able to see a oet give birth - which is unlikely, since it usually occurs at night and in seclusion - the lesson they will really learn is that animals can be created and discarded as it suits adults. Instead, it should be explained to them that the real miracle is life and that preventing the birth of some pets can save the lives of others.

Myth: I want my dog to be protective.
Fact: Spaying or neitering does not affect a dog's natural instinct to protect home and family. A dog's personality is formed more by genetics and environment than by sex hormones.

Myth: I don't want my male dog or cat to feel less of a male.
Fact: Pets don't have any concept of sexual identity or ego. Neutering will not change a pet's basic personality. He doesn't suffer any kind of emotional reaction or identity crisis when neutered.


Myth: But my dog (or cat) is so special. I want a puppy (or kitten) just like her.
Fact: A dog or cat may be a great pet but that doesn't mean her offspring will be a carbon copy. Professional animal breeders who follow generations of bloodlines can;t guarantee they will get just what they want out of a particular litter. A pet owner's chances are even slimmer. In fact, an entire litter of puppies or kittens might receive all of a pet's (and her mate's) worst characteristics.

Myth: I'll find a good home for all the puppies and kittens.
Fact: You may find homes for all of your pet's litter but each home you find means one less home for the dogs and cats in shelters whp need good homes. Also, in less than one year's time, each of your pet's offspring may have his or her own litter, adding even more animals to the population. The problem of pet overpopulation is created and perpetuated one litter ata time.


So, think about neutering or spaying your cats and dogs. All you have to do is love them till their last breath and protect them with whatever you have. We are proud to say that all our seven children are neutered and spayed.
