Cat Litter Tips

Got these useful Cat Litter Tips from Petscorner. Thought of sharing with you guys:

  1. Do not place the cat litterbox in a busy spot in your house. Indeed, your cat values its privacy highly.
  2. Do not place the cat litter box close to their food dish and water bowl. Indeed, a cat is a very hygienic animal and might stop using the litter box.
  3. Clean the litter box regularly. The smell which clings to the litter box itself will thus be removed. The litter box will smell fresh longer.
  4. If you have more than one cat in the house, it is preferable to give each cat its own litter box. In any case make sure that no more than two cats have to use the same cat litter box.
  5. Why not try a clumping variety of cat litter? The smell absorption is excellent and you need less.
  6. Some cats prefer a fine variety of cat litter, whereas others rather have coarse granules. Try out what kind of granules your cat prefers.
  7. If you decide to start using another variety of cat litter, mix the new and the old granules the first few times. In this way it is easier for the cat to get used to a new variety of cat litter.
  8. Cat litter is often multi-purpose. For example it can be used as a bottom layer in cages for birds and rodents, at the bottom of flower pots, for oil-absorption, in the dustbin for smell absorption or in the garden for soil improvement. Read the instructions on the packaging to find out.
Our bit of Cat Litter experience.

The best cat litter so far is the Fussie Cat lemon scented litters. We have tried several clumping brands and found this particular brand very economical (especially when you buy 10 packs you'll get to redeem a pack of the same size for free) and the odor control excellent. The litter leaves very little traces and of course, whenever and wherever you use clumping litters, make sure the surrounding areas are dry. Always make sure the litter boxes are clean at all times and ensure only 2 cats share a litter box at most.

We LOVE Daddy

Ayah bought the kids a pair of shirt - a rather statement making shirt that says, I LOVE Daddy. They definitely look stunning in the yellow T-shirt especially Alexander - yellow makes him look really like Stuart Little.

Unfortunate for Napoleon, the shirt was a bit tight fitting but he still manage to put it on ahahaha.

Constantine can just see his siblings new t-shirt as he is too small to try on. The only girls who tried was Gabby - we're planning to get another T-shirt for the girls soon. So Isabelle, Gabby and Vicky, wait ahhhh...

Enjoy the pics. More pics HERE.

Gabrielle - Beautiful Girl

This video and song is dedicated to our dear Beautiful Girl, Gabrielle...

Beautiful Girl

Beautiful girl, whenever you are
I knew when I saw you, you had opened the door
I knew that I'd love again after a long, long while
I'd love again
you said 'hello' and I turned to go
but something in your eyes left my heart beating so
I just knew that I'd love again after a long, long while
I'd love again

Buddy Pet Wagon

We've started since July shpping for our kids' supply from an online pet shop - Buddy Pet Wagon. We previously shopped at Pet Safari, requiring us to travel quite a distance, go through sometimes heavy traffic and packed parking spaces at Ikea, and carrying the stuff we bought from our parking lot to our 8th floor condo unit. Imagine doing this monthly - it could just be too much sometimes. Having to carry a 9Kg bag of Iams, 8 bags of 5 liters Fussy Cat Clumping litter sand. 30 cans of 250ml canned food and some other stuff like conditioning tables and what not.

With Buddy Pet Wagon, things are so much easier for us - the stuff is just ordered online, paid online and they will send the supply to you once the payment is cleared - always in a jiffy - very convenient minus the hassle of carrying heavy loads up to the unit.

The operator, Julienne Seet is very friendly too. Twice, she delivered my orders personally (Well Julienne, consider this free advertising for you for a job well done! Thank you!) Moreover with purchases over RM55, delivery is free. If she does not deliver herself, she would use the Kangaroo Express - also very efficient! And guess what, the prices are not too far off compared to those on the shelf and moreover, every purchase entitles you to a point where when accumulated can be exchanged for supplies AND on top of that you also get a good discount from your purchase. This is something special as I don't get this elsewhere. They have member cards in Pet Safari and Pets Wonderland but it seems discounts are given only for selected items at Pet Safari and at Pets Wonderland, worse - I just don't know what the card's for anymore.

For our first purchase we bought the Hagen/CATit Water Fountain for only RM87 when at Pet Safari it's over RM100 - same size, same brand, what more can I say? We also bought the Hagen?CATit Cat Spa for RM45 - and yes, you're right, the same item at a more expensive price at Pet Safari, a CATit Regular Sized littler box with hood and two scratch pads (One we got for free for spending over RM100).

Julienne was fast to add the Fussy Cat Clumping Litter as I have requested (the one we have been using the past year and recommends to everybody), so we purchase everything from Buddy Pet Wagon except for the children's conditioning tablets and canned food which we purchase together with our grocery every month.

So, enjoy the pics, the kids were as excited as we were when our orders arrived one fine Saturday afternoon in July.

Renovation Completed


The blog today marks the completion of the renovation to the house. Laminated flooring and new paints makes the house looks cozier with dashes of brown colour. At first, doubts circles our minds as to see if the colour fits the new flooring. Finally, we saw that it really matches everything. One week of hard work and tireless effort has paid off! Well, look at the photos of the "new" house.. Enjoy..

Boarding for the Unlucky Trio

On sunday, three of the kids were sent to the petshop at Bukit Antarabangsa for boarding. The reason is that the house will be on renovation on the following week to install laminated flooring. To ensure the kids are comfortable as we plan to lock the remaining 4 left at home in their room we decided to send these trio for boarding. Other than that, it is also to prevent from 'unnecessary' helping the installer. So, after much consideration, 3 of them were chosen; Gabby, Hercules and Napoleon, based on their sizes, level of helpfulness and of course their hyperactivity.

Upon reaching the petshop, Hercules was the one who made noise all the way from home. I think maybe because of the previous experience of him in a cage that ended up in a vet and getting the shots. Hehehe.. The cage, located at the front of the shop is where they are put. All of them didn't like the idea. Gabby were hissing to others, Hercules making the loudest noise and Napoleon getting himself as low as possible to hide from others. It's kinda sad since this is their first experience out of home and in a cage. But, this is for their own good too.

Anyway, the flooring process were completed within a day (which we earlier expected to be done in 2 days). Today, they will be taken back to our hands and to our "new" home. Hehehe.. New home. Not yet, still got some painting to be done. Anyway, enjoy some photos of the kids at the petshop.

Letter to our son Troy at the Rainbow Bridge

Dearest Troy in Memory - One of his last photos taken

Dear Son,

Only God knows how much we miss you. Whenever we look at Hercules, we'll definitely remember dear you. How loving you were towards him. He's a grown up strong black kitty now you know - thanks to your taking care of him, he is now as loving as you are towards our youngest, Constantine.

We didn't write this earlier, not because we have forgotten you but we were bogged down renovating the house for your other siblings to live comfortably. Yes, we have done a lot to the house and many changes has taken place butthe one little spot of love you left in both our hearts and of course your collar and tag still hung in the car with bro Sid's. It shall remain there till the end of our lives.

Dear Troy,

We're sure you remember Gabby, your sis - the one who took care of you. After you left, she hasn't really been the same. No matter how many other kids we brought home, she never treated them like she treated dear you. We're sure she misses you as much too.

Funny Troy that we really miss you attacking and sucking our earlobes. You're definitely one of a kind.

Abah and Ayah hope you'll take good care of your self. Do send our love to Sidney up there in Rainbow Bridge. Do pray for our well being and the well being of your siblings at home.

A Special Message from Abah


Abah has never told you this but I was really sad when you left even though I didn't cry that night of September 1, 2006. Abah was so shocked and disappointed with myself for not taking you to the vet earlier, for ignoring your symptoms. Sometimes I blame myself for your passing. If only I had been more sensitive. Seeing Ayah that night was devastating, the way you left us on his lap, the way you breathed your last breath. I kept seeing that moment over and over again and I promise to myself that I won't let that happen again to anyone of us, to Ayah and to rest of our children. I'm sorry Troy.

We love you Troy.

Abah & Ayah

p/s Troy left us on September 1, 2006.
