But generally the cats seems to like their fur short, especially when they do not get to stay in the aircon room all day. For me, its less furball lying all over the floor! So the next grooming session, Garlic will have a Lion cut again.

The photos are taken about 2 months ago, a few days after Sesame left us. It reminded me so much of him, as he is normally the one who loves flowers.

I have been thinking for a while on how to bid Sesame goodbye. My dad’s comment on facebook inspired me to finally write this post. Quoted from Facebook….
“How not to miss him ?! I still remembered the day Pepper brought him out to this world,and how we enjoyed seeing him growing up and learning how to walk. It was so amazing to see him grown up to be bigger size than his mother, Pepper, and later bigger than Garlic.
Being the youngest in the family, he had left us so unexpectedly! May be his sudden departure is to remind us that our life in this world is so uncertain and we must value all those who are close to us as one day they will depart from us too.
He had brought so much joy to all those who had come into contact with him. It would be so unfair to him if there is no life after death!
So there is life after death, and Sesame's soul had gone to a peaceful place and will reincarnate to a higher form of being in his next life; may be a human.
So let us keep the sweet memory when he was with us, but no with sorrow as always remember he had gone to a better place and better life.”
Sesame, thank you for 5 years of wonderful memories and happy moment you brought into the Spice Cats House. You came into my life totally unexpected, and you left without any warning. I have loved and cherished you with all my heart, and you have become part of my life in every single way. Every part of the house brings back memory of you. Even now, I sometimes half expect to see you waiting for me at the door whenever I come home from work.
I still remember clearly………………
……. When Pepper was at the vet after struggling to give birth to you after more than 16 hours and the vet has to give Pepper 2 injection to induce birth
…….. When I first laid eyes on you at the vet, you fat tiny thing that is happily suckling away
…….. How happy I am that you are suckling day and night when you elder sibling wont even eat
…….. How I weigh you every single day and how proud I am that you gain about 10gram per day.
…….. How excited we all are when you started crawling all over the place before you can even walk
…….. How blue were your eyes when you finally see the world for the first time
…….. How you used to fall asleep on my lap when you were a little kitten
…….. How happy I am when you started eating kitten canned food
…….. How proud I am when you first used the litter box all by yourself!
…….. How hyper active you are, always running up and down
…….. How you love to pounce on people’s feet when you were little!
…….. How you slowly grow, and eventually become bigger than Pepper, then even bigger than Garlic!
…….. How short your furs were when you were a kitten but then how long they became when you got older!
…….. How much time I have to spend to comb you and remove all the matted fur!
…….. How much you love to be brushed
…….. How you always follow me into the bathroom
…….. How you always look down the toilet when I flush
…….. How your god-mom would always carry you into the bathroom with her
…….. How you love to bully Ginger and would never stop even when she hissed at you
…….. How you used to stick your paw into the water bowl and play with the water
…….. How much noise you make when I bath you!
…….. How high you jump when you are playing with the mouse
…….. How you love to sit in front of the small standing fan and enjoy the breeze
…….. How you love flowers and is always the first to smell it
…….. How you love to sleep on my bed and enjoy the aircon and hide under the blanket when it gets too cold
…….. How you would complain even when I just accidently step on your fur
…….. How you would run and hide whenever the vacuum is on
…….. How you love when I mop the house because you can chase after the mop
…….. How you love to be carried and cuddled
…….. How you would greet me at the door whenever I come home from work
…….. How you would respond to my voice and nobody else’s
…….. How you would come running whenever I shake the Brewer’s Yeast bottle, your favourite treat
…….. How you would come and sit by me when I am having dinner alone at home
…….. How I used to show you off to my friends and everyone would be amazed by how big and furry you are
…….. How I would always bring you over to my parents’ place for Chinese New Year
There are just so many things that will continue to stay in my mind for many years to come. May you be happy at the
I wanted to upload some photos that were taken 1 week before you left us, but somehow seems to have lost the memory card..... so i posted this photo instead.
We love you, Sesame....

If you are a cat owner and lover like me, you will be able to relate to the stories. We are afterall living in the company of equals. But I personally think that Au and Target are more spoilt than the Spice Cats! And I am glad the Spice Cats are indoor cats, so they never got a chance to bring rodents (especially live ones) into the house!
If you are thinking of getting a cat, the Cat FAQs is especially useful! It teaches you how to toilet train your cat, how to keep them off the furniture, what to do when your cat’s upset, and how to have an intelligent conversation with your cats! Ellen also shares her experiences when Scoop, Au and Targets moved in and took over her life.
If you are a non-cat-lover, you will find the short stories amusing and it will give you a totally different perspective of the species! Ellen has somehow managed to let her readers relive the life of her cats! You simply gotta love her cats.
Katz Tales is selling for RM28 on our local bookstores. Go get a copy now!

So first thing Saturday morning, I brought Abel to the vet. We waited for 45mins before the vet was free to see us. To my horror, the vet shone some light into the wound and I saw maggots moving inside! The vet gave me a few options. As I did not want to take the risk to have Abel sedated (because of his age), I decided to take a slower approach of clearing the maggots.
The vet then took a long tweezer (dont know what you call it), and removed the live maggots from Abel's hind leg. She took out more than 20 maggots! It makes all my hair stand seeing the maggots squirming around. Abel was such an angel and never protested to the process, he only flinched once during the whole process. After that the vet recommended that I leave Abel there for a few hours for her to clean up more maggots (Apparently some maggots buried deep into the flesh but need to come out to breath).
How did Abel gets maggots on his leg? Well, the vet said that Abel must have a wound (could be just a scratch) and as the wound was healing, the skin around the wound was dead. So that attract flies to come lay eggs. And because Abel LOVES soggy and muddy areas, the eggs hatched and thus the maggots!
As the bandage wont stay intact, Cathy went to the vet for me and got a collar for Abel, to prevent him from licking the wound. Thanks Cathy! Don't know what I'll do without you :)
Sunday morning, I brought Abel to another vet for a 2nd opinion and for a check up. The vet took out 2 dead maggots and 1 LIVE one! Another round of medication to flood the wound and kill the maggots. Abel didnt even flinch once. The vet praised him for being so cooperative.
At 1130am, I checked on Abel's wound, saw a dead maggot, used my eyebrow tweezer and took it out from Abel's wound. I then went out and left Abel alone at home for 3 hours. He did not destroy my house :)
Abel is house-bound until his wound recovers, should be about 10-14days. His wound looks a lot better this morning, its no longer swollen. He is behaving like normal, running after his balls, chasing after the cats occasionally (the cats have decided to stay upstairs), his appetite is also normal.
I think all the maggots have been removed. My parents have agreed to babysit him whenever I am at work. He is on antibiotics, cream are to be applied on the wound twice a day. I will also bring him to the vet again for another check-up tomorrow morning.
