I miss Bob

I was looking at these photos of Bob this morning. It has been 2 weeks since I boarded him and Cinnamon at Kittycare Haven at Lim Chu Kang. We have visited them last weekend and will do so tomorrow and every weekend. Angel who is low maintenance stays home. Mom had to go for hysterectomy and be hospitalised. Dad quit his taxi driver job so that he could take care of mom, do housework and cooking. Our worst fears come true when the doctors recommend that mom go for chemotherapy. This also means Bob and Cinnamon have to be away from home for a longer duration until mom is well. I miss Bob sleeping with me, head butting, enjoying my hugs and kisses.

The Chinese Spinach phase

A few weeks ago, I was in love with Chinese Spinach and cooked it a few times for my meals. However it could not be a daily affair as preparing the vegetable for cooking is quite tedious. I need to peel the outer thin "membrane" of the stems so that they will be softer after cooking. Some of the leaves may have tiny white spots (aphids?) so I have to be alert and removed these leaves. I must really crave for Chinese spinach (hoi cai in Teochew) and in the mood to cook it.

Angel our big boy

Angel looked like he had made a mess with the paper balls and went into hiding :) He likes Mom to throw paper balls at him, before she heads out to feed the community cats in the morning, and he will run after them.
