Opium For Nga Nga

Catnip

Elizabeth Chong being the nice person and cat (and dog) lover she is, brought a calling gift to my house. She told my mom it is Meow's Ah Phian in Hokkien; meaning cat's opium. Haha.

In Chinese it is known as cat mint or catnip in English. It is really addictive like a drug to cats, it seems. When I was out, my cat Nga Nga raided the pouch, tore it and ate half of it. But then, he is a compulsive glue sniffer all along and has always been attracted to any glue smells such as adhesives on envelope flaps and stamps. He even licked a jar of Tiger Balm once.

Introducing Nga Nga

Nga Nga is our lonely and bored indoor cat. He holds a special place in our hearts. Eight or nine years ago, my mom saw a tiny kitten trapped and crying in a water logged and deep monsoon drain that he must have fallen into..

Mom summoned me and I jumped in without thinking. The drain was so deep I could not climb back up. Had to walk a mile before finding a way to climb out, with the wet, dirtied and frightened kitten in hand. Nga Nga means baby in Cantonese. Was the name registered at the vet when he was sent for check up and vaccinations.

A Valentine Day's Gift

A Valentine Day's Gift

While not intentional, it was a pleasant Valentines Day's gift for me and my cats, since it arrived today.

She is not only generous but, at my request, helpfully screenshot part of the purchase process to keep me in the loop. It will help me understand the process and to troubleshoot should other new donors have questions. So far it seemed simple and dependable, if you use a Malaysian issued credit or debit card.
