Not only did the country celebrating 50 years of independence (and I was part of the parade), Paris gave birth to 5 beautiful and handsome kitties!
But I can't tell which are male and female just yet. So no names given at the moment.
I prepared for their birth about a week before by placing the cage in our powder room, lining the interior with layers of towels and covering its exterior with blanket for privacy. Food, drink, litter box and scratching pole were all set in there. Not forgetting some clean hand towels in case we needed to touch the kittens (can't have contact with our skin or their mommy might abandon them - so I've read).Too bad I was not around to witness their birth as I was at the parade. But glad everything went well.
As part of Merdeka parade preparation, I was up at 4.30am on Tuesday and Wednesday to make it for the rehearsals at Merdeka Square. Good thing they gave us a day off on Thursday. On the actual event, Friday, I was up as early as 3.30 am!
He celebrated his **th birthday on 2nd Sept. I can't mention his age. It's a sensitive issue..hehe!
Since he wasn't actually looking forward to this particular birthday, I planned a low-key celebration. Had this family over for lunch where his mom and me cooked his favourite dish, Gulai Ketam (Crab cooked with coconut milk and spices). And for dessert was Baskin Robbins' icecream cake...yummy!
Lastly, I treated him to dinner at TGIF and look at what he did while waiting for our food...
Happy Birthday babe! Love ya ;)
