Losing Sayuri

  How do you even grieve when you lose a pet you love so much?  Is it even normal to feel your heart break into a hundred tiny pieces and know that somehow, a piece will always be missing no matter how many years have gone by. Until now, I am still coming to terms…

Tales of Sayuri: Have you ever tried to bathe a cat?

I didn’t know when I started to be a cat person. For as long as I can remember, I have always been in love with dogs. I owned a good number of dogs growing up — the oldest was Nick who lived to 70plus in human years. Nick’s whole name was Nicholas Carter-Mesias, yes —…

The day Sayuri got fixed

We finally brought our cat to the vet last Friday to get her fixed. It was no easy feat: she shrieked and wailed — her meows sounded between pleading for us to let her out of the carrier and then changing to growls full of hatred and desperation. In the cab, she rattled the carrier,…

The little things that matter (Day 41, 42 & 43/Project 365)

There are little things that makes us smile. For me, it’s my family, my hubby, my cats (especially Sayuri), my toys and comic books, my clothes, shoes and all my fashion accessories. While I was working last Saturday, Sayuri kept on hanging beside me — I don’t know why. I kept on asking her why…

Giving a piece of my heart away

Scarface or “Scarfy”, our little bundle of energy went to her new home today, and I feel like I have died inside. We call her Scarface due to the distinct pattern and mix of colors on her face. She is one of Sayuri’s kittens out of her second litter and she was the one who…

Kitty Love (Day 33/Project 365)

Sayuri gave birth to a healthy litter of 4 kittens — as usual, the kitties are a mix of Sayuri’s (and whoever maybe the danged father)colors. But what made the hubby elated–so elated in fact that he called work to say he will be absent last night–is the fact that his spoiled, little monster finally…

Day 24 and 25 (Project 365)

Day 24 Day 25 The lack of a post yesterday is due to the weird internet connection we have here at home. The firewall kept acting up thus limiting access to the internet. And wow, did I tell you that I managed to be sick again following three days of being confined in bed? Yeah,…

The Cat and the Blonde (Day 1/01 January 2012/Project 365)

Starting my own Project 365 and it’s Day One. I’d love you to meet Sayuri, the other member of my little family with the hubby. I’ve written a lot of things about this cat and obviously, I love her to pieces. I got her almost three years ago as a kitten – saw her wrestling…

Living with Sayuri, the imperial house cat

Being married for almost two years now and still waiting for the blessing of a child of our own, The Hubby and I have adopted a year ago two foundling kitties which we have rescued from the streets. We planned on adopting only one, an orange stray which we found crying on the street corner…
