The hamster should be at least 6 months old. Quite puny. I still can't tell whether it's a boy or a girl but sis named it Pip. Pip must have never seen so much food in its life and it stuffed its cheek pouches with food (looking like a furry cobra) and run around the new house and on the exercise. Here are some cute photos of Pip:

I scanned this ad from today's Sunday Times (Page 27). It would make an even nice ad if not for the smudging of ink from the other side of the paper (Notice the weird appearance of 2 heads on the top left and right of the ad. )
I have experienced vicariously through the blog accounts of Dawn and 5-Cat Style & the Flyer. Check out their blogs under my links :>

First, we cook the rice with water and diced pumpkin. After the rice was cooked, I added half a cup of hot water into the rice cooker, a tablespoon of instant oats, some sesame oil and fish slices and pork (which had been seasoned with half tablespoon of light soya sauce and small amount of non-MSG chicken stock) and some Chinese coriander and spring onions.
The result was this! I like the not salty taste as I didn't add much seasoning. The flavour of the porridge came from the aroma of the fish, herbs, sweetness of the pumpkin. Yummy! I felt good, satisfied and happy eating every spoonful of it :>I will cook porridge for myself using the rice cooker the next time.
Hunter came a short while later.
See Dad's sexy legs and Mum's handy brolly to shelter us if we were at a hot spot.
Shadow did some stretching exercises after her breakfast.
My task @ hand is to rest, drink plenty of water. I have sort of quarantined myself @ home today. I was supposed to go for a walk with Adele and her dogs this morning but in the end, our other friends couldn't make it too and I am sick. I have also told my other friends that I couldn't join them for dinner this evening. I have wanted to visit AVA's road show @ Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza but it seems like I may not be able to go down tomorrow too.
I hope to recover on Mon. Maybe I can still make it for dinner with Joan or do some baking :>
Parents have thrown some chilli seeds and the result is the bunch of plants in the middle of the pot.

I also joined Shuhui and her family for a lovely lunch of fried noodles (with prawns, char siew) and stir fried veggies prepared by her mother before I made my way to Cat Welfare Society's party @ SMU. It was nice meeting people who care for the cats and also being able to put a face to some of the bloggers who have been commenting on Dawn's blog. Jolanda also used a cat trap to demonstrate to some of us who were interested to know.
I also helped my friend, Adele to ask 3 experienced ladies (Shireen, Sabrina and Nan Nan) tips on how to comfort the two 4 week old kittens (she picked up from Bt Timah yesterday) who keep crying. Feeding them every 2 hours, keeping them warm, using a wet tissue to induce bowel movement and burping them like a baby should be able to help calm the kittens. As Adele has a dog and recently adopted a puppy from ASD, she won't be able to keep the kittens and has emailed to CWS on how she can put them up for adoption.
I wonder what they were lookin at. Ainsley has been making lovely sounds that we don't understand. Soon she will be talking!

For the past 2 weeks, the cats have been eating Nutro's cat food. Fragrant and the cats have no complaints since they always gobble them up. I have tried the dry cat food from Friskies, Back to basic and Royal Canin but they have a strong smell and I would get a whiff of the smell when I open my bag (which I carry to work) as I will bring some cat food in ziploc bag with me if I'm meeting friends after work and want to visit the cats with some food and water before going home. Nutro's food has a nice aroma and I don't mind catching whiffs of it.
I bought this 1kg pack from Pet Lovers @ Shaw House and it cost me $12+. I dropped by Pet Kampung @ Novena Square recently and this Nutro pack is selling @ $11+. I know where to get more Nutro for the cats the next time.

After Dad finished with the wrapping, Mum and I started to transfer the stuff from one container to the another. Zip was very excited about his new home and for about 15 mins, he was busy exploring it before settling down.

That's him eating.
He looks like a small cat in this photo
Shadow doesn't seem to mind Hunter today but she made some angry hissing sound when Shrek was near and this affected her appetite and attitude towards her.
I couldn't resist taking some photos of the park.
Our house is the third corner unit from the top.
Shrek was lying there after eating more than a handful of dry cat food.
Sis commented that he looked fierce in this photo.
Doesn't Shadow looks adorable? She has such pretty eyes.
Shadow and Hunter greeted a Chinese couple in their 50s/60s who were smiling @ us when they walked past us to the foot reflexology garden (the footpath with smooth, protuding stones). The cats followed them, so Sis and I guess the couple must have be feeding them too.
I just took this photo after breakfast from our unit @ the 11 storey and that should be Shadow hiding in the structural pillar in the park (see the black spot in the centre of the photo). She sometimes hides there from no one or from this other cat that we nicknamed Hunter. He comes and goes. We see him around sometimes and he would want to eat and drink too. Shadow would run away and hide if Hunter is stalking her.
