Inul - 11 months old

It puzzles me why every time I step on this cover I see water falls off the edge.

Mama Daisy's moods during the journey

Mama Daisy slept I think 90% of the journey. She's so used to travelling long distances now that she takes the long journey to hibernate!

We left Kuching around 8.30 am on the 12th of December for our 11th trip to Bintulu. This trip will add another 600 km to our record. Throughout this trip the weather was a bit cloudy and we encountered no rains.  This time we dropped by at Engkilili for lunch.

Visit to Cat Museum

While in Kuching recently, my foster parents visited the Cat Museum.
Looking very much like Einstein, but NO.
They said there was a picture of a cat looking very much like Einstein dispalyed at the museum. But we thought Einstein had a full moustache whereas the one in the picture a half- moustache.  Too bad when we came back to Kuching after the 10th trip to Bintulu,  Einstein and Macy Grey did not appear at all . Chances are we are losing both of them now.

A Watch Cat am I ?

Gave my foster parents a good surprise today. Here I am on top of the main door. " Oh, Look" they said, " Inul, wants to be a watch cat!"

Daisy having a morning stroll

Having recovered from the long trip from Bintulu to Kuching, Mama Daisy takes time to stroll around the garden early this morning.  The lovely orange ixoras were her favourite and since their flowers were low she could easily smell them .

10 th trip Back Kuching

Today (1/12) at 9.00 am we left Bintulu for the road again. On this 10th trip back Kuching, Mama remained very cool. She was a bit grumpy at first especially when we had to climb the bumpy farm road before we could hit the smooth highway. I was in tears. I loved Bintulu for its jungle and freedom to wander about the bushes, chasing after birds, butterflies, grasshoppers, lizards and giant millipede. But Mama was kind and loving today. She comforted me and tried her best to cool my nerves. Finally after about half an hour through the journey I settled down after sensing that all the rest of the company were telling me not to fear or cry too long. Everything's OK. Thanks to Mama for all her moral support.

Me taking a short nap, whereever or whenever possible.
Mama slept through most of the time, I think eight out of the ten hours journey. Her favourite 'pillow' is this notebook bag.
We dropped by at Sarikei for lunch. At a roadside stall there our foster parents bought a grilled chicken which we got to share.
Towards the last quarter of the journey i.e after Sri Aman town, we encountered lots of heavy rain .
We arrived Kuching around 7.00 pm .

Stranger in Our Midst

Yesterday we saw this stranger came into our territory. He/She?? was immediately chased by Mama.

Mama sleeping

Mama Daisy likes to sleep on the cement floor. It's much cooler here especially when the temperature is too hot inside the house.

It's a Bird!

I caught a 'pipit' bird today. But when I brought it home, my foster parent said the three big words: NO,NO,NO.
Soon the tiny bird was lifted up in the air and taken away from my sight.
Why can't I play with it?

Meet My Small Giant Friend

He's totally harmless.  Likes to roll back when touched. There are lots of them at our eco-farm. Today I had fun with one giant millipede, which moved slowly despite its million feet .

Cat's Wanna Hav Fun

Today I ran and jumped and finally got a grasshopper.
I did not kill it. Just wanna play with it.
I brought it in the house to show my foster parents my new playmate.
" OK " said them, "But don't eat or kill it".
So, I rolled happily over the floor, pretending to catch it , then pushed it. But not to eat it. It was just FUN.

Call Me Cat Woman

I am learning to be a Big Girl now. Guess you guys can call me ' CAT Woman'.
P.S. Words are circulating around the house that my face is more rounded now. Have put in lots of flesh. And soon will be as big as Mama :)

Nice Fragrance

Tired after this morning run Mama Daisy call it quits for the morning and thereafter laid her head close to the cut flowers arrangement to enjoy the fragrance of the common gardenia blooms...while starting to take her morning nap.

Mama Daisy's Morning Run( and Walk)

It's customary for us at the Laman kambatik Eco-farm to do our early morning run.  Well this morning around 6.30 am we followed our foster parent taking the first morning breeze and the sniffing the early morning plumeria blooms. Half-way Mama decided to show off her catwalk, instead of running. ( Cats too are temperamental and proud and don't care a cent about the world)

To catch a bee

This morning a bee entered our house.
How do I catch it? Here my jungle training  and instincts come in handy. First have a proper stance.  Put you left paw for support. Then lean forward a bit while holding your balance. Your eyes on the target.
On the count of three, pull out your right paw with the swiftness of an arrow and the clench of an eagle....   oops gotchu!

The Lizard

This lizard was lucky to be on the other side of the glass louvre. Inul, you can do it? Yes, but no! The sight of the lizard makes my heart hit the ceiling and my paws trembling..damn lizard.

Beautiful tree

Hi, It's INUL talking. Today I followed my master ( foster father!) wandering in the jungle behind our chalet. Look at the beautiful yellow flowers of this jungle tree. Cats do like beauty, too..meow..meow..

Inul is nine months old

It's me to narrate the story now.  This is my pix taken yesterday (25 oct) being 9 months old. I was born here in Bintulu on 25 th January'08.
Wonder why I am near the water tank?
Well, it's quite a height and safer here.  Am looking towards the jungle to see the water ravaging through the bushes and overflowering the tiny stream.  You see, the monsoon months have arrived . It's been raining for the last few days. Am happy to note that the water tank is full.
Water, water every where.....

10 th trip to Bintulu.

We had a pit stop at Sibu town's central market on this 10th trip to Bintulu (19th October).
But my foster parents kept quiet for almost the whole 9 hours drive from Kuching to Bintulu.
It's sad that during this Hari Raya trip, Einstein didn't return home . We missed him very much.  Then Macy Grey escaped out from the car as we were about to leave the house gate without our knowledge.  By the time we entered the main traffic lights junction to the Kuching-Bintulu highway ( about five minutes drive from the house) we discovered Macy Grey was not in the car. We rushed back to the house to look for her. But to no avail.
We miss them both.  We hope and pray that by the next time we're back in Kuching somehow they will be back with us. We pray for their safety and return.
P.S. LOVE from me, INUL.

Longing for Einstein

Brother Einstein is not back home yet.  It has been 11 days since we last played with him.  News is circulating in the house that we gonna be going back to Bintulu very soon.  Probably end of this week. Therefore I am hoping that he will show up soon and join us on our 10 th trip to Bintulu.

Hari Raya in Kuching

On this trip to Kuching we were joined by our foster parents' grandaughter, INA ,to spend the Hari Raya holidays in Kuching. She came with her parents from Bintulu by bus. She's such a cute girl. Loves to do posing and modelling. Here she poses almost naturally. A potential future model in the making.

Einstein has not returned home

For five nights now Einstein has not returned home.  Mama Daisy seems upset and now waits at the door for Einstein to show up.  Could it be that Einstein has found a second home? For the time being, we all miss him...tremendously.

Hooray! We gonna make it to the 10,800 km mark

Our 9th trip back Kuching in Pictures ( 27 Sept'08)
Me and Inul got da chance to sit and nap on my foster parent's lap, at the driver's seat.
Mama Daisy sits comfortably at the jump seat );
Sometimes we just prefer to be at the back seat where the leg room is bigger. Well you can say..HHmmm...
$usiness Class.
An arch which is not an arch?!!! The sign reads " Pintu Gerbang Sibu" literally translated means " Sibu Entrance Arch", but you cannot drive your car underneath it! Our car sort of swerve around it.
A short walk from the the Sibu Arch is this small park with the stone sculptures of the Chinese Zodiac animals.
Here I go, kissing the monkey.
Hey , Look here, You're on candid camera. That's me on back of a ram.
After Sibu town, we did not stop or take a rest at any of the smaller towns along the way. At Betong junction, nevertheless we stopped at the Petronas petrol kiosk to refuel and were offered free coffee.

Einstein's climbing prowress

Einstein tries to reach the very end of the slender branch to show his climbing prowress.  When I screamed from below, he answered back " If I don't blow my horn, who will?"
Unfortunately for Einstein, he got stuck on the tree. " Sis, please bring over the ladder. I don't know how to get out of this tangle. It's real jungle up here." I dashed into the house to inform our foster parents. Within minutes a ladder was brought over and our foster parents brought Einstein safely down the tree.   When I quizzed him later, he admitted " It's not easy to be a hero, Macy. But I'll try again". Then I reminded Einstein, " That's a trumpet tree*. You're not to blow your horn up there. Remember that! Try another tree." Einstein looked at me adoringly and with a flash of his handsome moustache said " OK, sis, I adore you. Thanks for being my mentor".
Note: * trumpet tree = tabebuiea rosea

Macy Grey's afternoon nap corner

This is my afternoon nap favourite corner. My size is just made for the space between the mosquito netting and the glass louvres. Oh, how I love hiding by this window.
