One month ago, Azwaj found four bundle of kittens joy on his way to the shop downstairs. Unfortunately three of them passed on one after another that same week which caused both A and me such grief and that left me with puffy eyes for almost a week
One of them, we named him Baby Mir (short for Miracle) survived through a bad eye infection and an abscess that burst under his right ear and is now thriving at 200grams. He is a very well behaved boy and is not fussy at all unless he is hungry (we all do right?.. lol).
Baby Mir is growing up so fast and we are enjoying each stage of his growth. From a dormant little thing, he is now walking albeit shakingly (we can’t help but laugh at him) and letting us know what he likes and what he doesn’t like. He loves sleeping under the blanket with daddy, listening to daddy playing the guitar and watching the mouse move as daddy checked out guitar centre, and he loves snuggling with me after a full bottle feed. Ahh such joy.
Here’s a picture of Baby Mir with the bottle (thanks GP!)
and here’s one from today just after he woke up from his very long sleep.
Happy One Month Old Baby Mir!

Nina wasn’t looking well the week before and after a visit to the clinic, the vet told us that she may not be eating well because of her teeth. The thing is Doc Sharon can’t do anything to her without doing a blood test to make sure she will be able to handle being put under. She gave Nina some antibiotics and told us to monitor her changes. She also suggested we switch her to wet soft food.
We did as the vet suggested and Nina looked to be responsive. Whenever I put the bowl of food in front of her, she will respond, licked a few pieces but then stopped eating. So I had to force fed her which was not easy as she would push my hand away. The next best thing that I could do was to mash the food with water, put it in a syringe and give it to her that way. It was ok for the next few days but then she refused to even feed that way anymore and she would clamp her mouth shut and spurt our whatever I fed her.
She got worse on 3rd July refusing to even drink the water I syringed her with. By that time we sort of knew the end was end. We put a pretty romp on her to keep her warm and made her as comfortable as we possibly can. Azwaj would lie with her and the other kitties would come and keep them company.
However, Nina is pretty stubborn and strong. She would just lie for a bit and then she would move away preferring to be alone. So we placed her in the kitty room (with door opened) as she looked to be more comfy there. We kept checking on her making sure she was ok.
Nina passed away peacefully on 4th July at around 8am. Our baby turned 14 years old on 21st May.

When we adopted Tia in February, we told ourselves, that was it. That makes ten furkids and we thought that is about the right number for the kitty room. Little did we know that come June and just a week after Tia was spayed, these four bundle of joys would come into our lives.
The story is much the same way as how we got Awal. Azwaj was leaving for the downstairs shop when he called me to the corridor and said he heard newborn kittens meowing. I didn’t hear anything and just dismissed it as the jungle sounds and close the door when he left. Not a few minutes later, he came back and told me that there were indeed four tiny lives in the gate area of an empty apartment near the lift and there was no mommy cat in sight. If we were to leave the babies, they would probably die from the cold or be eaten by other male cats for sure. I immediately got the torchlight and asked A to get some fresh milk from the shop downstairs.
The rest as they say is history.
And.. here they are. three white and one orange/brown little bundle of joys. They don’t have any names yet coz we’re not sure of their gender. But seriously though we can’t think of any names at all right now. Any suggestions?
Aren’t they simply precious? My heart is overflowing with love for them despite their feeding every 3hours and peeing all over me causing me shower at 3am in the morning.. lol..

Artificial grass is one of the most popular types of outdoor products on the market nowadays and for good reason. There are numerous benefits to artificial turf. Artificial turf that is installed properly can help increase the value of your properly by making it more aesthetically pleasing and charming to look at. This is especially advantageous for people who have yards that don’t seem to want to grow grass now matter what they do. Rather than having to settle for a bare lawn, you can simply invest in artificial turf that can provide you with the green yard that you desire and that is likely to help increase the value of your property at the same time.
Synthetic grass also expands your living space. Many people live outside in their yards just as much as they do inside their homes. For instance, you might enjoy lounging in a lawn chair outside on your lawn, grilling outside and eating around an outdoor table. You might even want to have picnics and family games outside on your lawn. Synthetic grass provides you with the backdrop to do all that on.
Not only that, synthetic grass helps you conserve water. This is especially ideal for people who live in areas where water is a scarce resource and where there are water restrictions. Some cities have ordinances that mandate when people can water their lawns and between what hours they can do so. If you choose to implement a synthetic turf on your lawn, then you can help cut down on the amount of water that you need to help keep your lawn looking the way that it’s supposed to.
Synthetic lawns also don’t require as much maintenance as real ones. They tend to be environmentally friendly as well since they don’t require as much water consumption and don’t require the use of harmful chemicals to keep bugs and other elements from attacking them. Additionally, synthetic lawns tend to be more ideal for children and pets. You are able to play on a synthetic check sooner than a real lawn after it rains because they tend to drain water faster than real grass does.
Regardless of the reason that you want to get a synthetic turf, doing so is relatively easy. You can purchase them from a variety of home improvement stores as well as online where numerous retailers sell them at discounted prices.
