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.

There Is Hope

There Is Hope

After speaking to Jidz Mohamed of Tesco Malaysia, I can confirm you can donate cat food and cat litter for my 5 cats. Their usual brand is Smartheart Seafood Flavour and they are costing me a fortune currently. I have had them since rescuing and adopting them as orphaned homeless kittens.

My revenue is reduced with my recent medical condition. My mobility is affected too and shopping for heavy stuff is challenging, I worry constantly about their food and other burden but is cheered up when I see them play with me.

Cat Roar

Cat Yawning

One of my cats getting up on a lazy Sunday morning. I saw him yawning in front of nice window light and went to get the camera.

To make him yawn again for the camera, I pretended to yawn a few times as he looked at me sheepishly.

Eventually, he yawned again. Don't know if it is contagious yawning or he was bored by the whole thing.

Is cross-species contagious yawning even possible? Some scientists believe, in the case of humans, it is triggered by empathy.

Didn't spend too much time wondering. We went back to sleep.

The Junkyard Dog Sleeps Tonight

The Junkyard Dog

The faithful junkyard dog finds a comfy spot different from the usual rusted metal, cardboard and other junk.

Saw this dog during my exploration of Hulu Bernam area recently. The junkyard dog is a popular movie trope often used to set up a scene with impending sinister activity or hostility.

For all its movie reputation of aggressiveness and alertness, it possesses a less-recognised attribute in real-life. Unconditional loyalty to owners who provide scant creature comforts.

It's A Jungle Out There

The Orang Asli Dog

The inhabitants here are of the Temuan tribe and indeed there is a dog at every turn. Aboriginal dogs were originally kept as hunting dogs and were lean and mean.

Acting also as guard dogs for those staying deep in the jungles, they alert human companions to approaching wild boars, bears and other aggressive wildlife. Importantly, they provide endless fun and companionship for Orang Asli children growing up without toys, gadgets and electricity.
