Is my Engrish no gooded?

Misty is this adorable cat which had spent her kittenhood in the void deck with her sister and brother. The trio was generally wary of strangers except towards this Lady Feeder and us. LF would be feeding them almost daily and we would try to supplement if she was late or absent. When Misty’s sister and brother disappeared mysteriously last year, LF scooped up Misty and kept her as a house pet. That was really good news for Misty as she would now be free from cat haters and psycho nuts who would abuse defenseless animals.

Then there was this Saturday morning a couple of months later when the Wife spotted Misty wandering in the carpark again when she was staring out of our place. We rushed down, picked her up and promptly sent her back to LF’s place. When I advised LF that she should fence up her main gate and windows to prevent Misty from escaping, she replied that would impede the wind flowing into her home. We told her those meshes from DIY shops would help and hoped that she would do something about it.

And last week, we saw Misty sitting in the car park again. When we sent her back to LF’s home, we found the main gate and windows not meshed up again. Is my Engrish no gooded? Cannot understand what I am saying? LF, mesh up your main gate and windows please!!!!

Received a tag this morning from 5-Cat Style & The Flyer. This is the first time we received a tag.

Here are the rules of this tag: The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself ". In the end, you need to choose 5 people to be tagged and list their names. The people who get tagged need to write a blog about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

So here goes nothing.

Kim Kim's weird habits/things

KK #1 - Funny sleeping pose
(stupid blogspot screwed up again. I can't link my pic)
I sleep in this position quite often, exposing my round tummy to the world. Sometimes my Daddy might ka jiao (meaning disturb) me by rubbing my tummy when I am fast asleep.

KK #2 - Suckling habitThis is a must-do everyday when Daddy or Mummy is home and lounging on the sofa. I will meow and meow at them until they relent and place me on their lap. Then I will begin suckling my own tummy until my fur is all wet and yucky. This is the best part of my day.

KK #3 - I am Master YodaEnough said!

KK #4 - My favourite pastimeKK #5 - I am Queen Mother of the household and also the most obedient of the lot :)

Xin Xin's weird habits/things

XX #1 - I can jump very high. There was a time I like to lounge on the top of the door which is only 2 inch thick :)

XX #2 - I am always the first one to greet Mummy & Daddy when they reach home.

XX #3 - I have the sweetest mew. It's soft, sweet yet very demanding. Everytime I do it, Mummy or Daddy will never be able to resist it. They will have to stroke my small head while I purr in bliss.

XX #4 - Timeout with Daddy (#%$^&*, can't post pic again so no pics from this point onwards). I like to lay around Daddy's legs when he is napping.

XX #5 - I don't like Bon Bon. If no one is looking, I will run to her side and pok her head. :) Yay!!

Bon Bon's weird habits/things

BB #1 - I know this is going to be unbelievable. But I don't know how to fight at all. I have no mean bone in my body. Everytime the rest tries to lay their paw on me, I just meow very loudly and Mummy/Daddy will rush to my aid.

BB #2 - I am very intelligent, perhaps the smartest of the lot. I know how to open drawers, push open sliding doors and dig things out of bottles etc.

BB #3 - Xin Xin doesn't like me. :( Mummy said that if I were a little human girl, I would probably be the cutest sweetest girl in school which no one wants to befriend.

BB #4 - I can sleep sitting down with my back leaning against the wall and with my legs wide open. I know, it's not a pretty sight but I like it.

BB #5 - No one can wake me up from my morning and afternoon beauty sleep. When it's around 5pm, I will wake up automatically for food.

Chang Chang's weird habits/things

CC #1 - I do not like my hind legs touched so clipping my hind claws are really difficult. Daddy has to resort to clipping them when I am really deep asleep. But he's not very successful most of the time.

CC #2 - I like to accompany Mummy and Daddy when they are reading their newspaper or at the computer. I know they adore my company although they keep pushing me away. :)

CC #3 - When I am on the bed or sofa, no cat can share the space with me except for Queen Mother Kim Kim. I am afterall the Crown Prince.

CC #4 - Have I ever told you I am OBB, one ball boy?

CC #5 - I love to lay on top on Mummy or Daddy when they are preparing to sleep. I think they like me purring on top on them.

Yuan Yuan's weird habits/things

YY #1 - I don't like bath time. I will scream my lungs out continuously until they bring me out of the toilet.

YY #2 - I do not like to be petted or hugged or carried. My short chubby legs can carry me fast away from danger whenever Mummy/Daddy approaches me for a hug.

YY #3 - Xin Xin is my adopted surrogate mother. I love her so much. :)

YY #4 - I demand play everyday. If Mummy/Daddy does not play with me, I will keep pestering them or turn on my cute face until they relent. Or sometimes, I will even fetch the fishing rod to their side to demand my quality play time.

YY #5 - I have a short kinked stubby tail like a bunny. Daddy thinks it's really cute.

Wow, this is not easy especially with blogspot playing punk with me. @#$%$#^ Stupid blogspot!
