Little Tiger Johnny

Simone sent me this picture of Johnny the other day – she and my housemate Arlyne are helping me babysit him while I’m here in Germany. They’re really superbly awesome for helping me with Johnny, no words can express how grateful I am for their kindness; they know how much I love him and this trip back was a last-minute emergency.

I really miss my baby.

Johnny Gonsalez Grows Up

I initially got Johnny Gonsalez from TJ, who found him in front of his then office. Since TJ wanted to keep Pistol Pete, my first rescue kitty, I decided to take Johnny off his hands because that time it wasn’t possible for him to have two cats.

He was such a scrawny kitty then, with bald patches all over his body due to a skin infection. The vet gave me some lotion, and the rest of his infected fur started to drop off to make way for new, healthy fur.

Now he’s a super naughty boy who keeps me awake most nights…and I miss him so.

A stay-at-home Saturday

Well, my plans for Saturday went out of the window, woke up sick today. No surprise really since I got sick in the plane on the way back to KL and didn’t recover properly.

The view from my balcony. The red roofs belong to the Orang Asli settlement right behind our area, there’s a fishing pond there that we used to go to. The Orang Aslis like to burn their rubbish nearly every night, and since we’re on the first floor, we get the full stench of smoke. I wish someone would tell them to stop it as it affects my breathing, but then again they probably do it because they don’t know any better and I’m not sure if MPPJ goes there to collect their rubbish (or whoever’s in charge of collecting rubbish around this area). The top right hand side are the condos at the end of Damansara Perdana, and the top left hand side shows more housing areas being built. Everything from old buildings to forests and trees are being razed down in PJ & KL to make space for more condos, more houses, more office blocks and malls.

I’m just going to spend the rest of the day resting and doing more work. Later on we’ll go out to buy stuff for dinner and a DVD to watch. I shall leave you with my darling naughty cat.

*His tail is quite short, it was already like that when we adopted him from the streets so we think it must have gotten cut or bitten off, by accident or something, when he was born.
