Steven the Vegan

A humourous video about a chef explaining his veganism…

Haha…sometimes you get the most ridiculous questions.

Met with another caregiver at the hawker centre yesterday. When she asked me to share in her char-kwe-tiau, I explained that I am a strict vegetarian, who doesn’t eat meat, eggs, milk….

Hmm…but what about seafood? Do you eat fish, prawns? 🙂

Then she told me her theory that we can eat the flesh of animals that have already been slaughtered… as long as we don’t do the killing. I explained about demand and supply…

Xiao Qiang caught by AVA

I received an sms from Juliana at 4.30pm that Xiao Hei’s son Boy Boy aka Xiao Qiang was caught by AVA this afternoon.

Terry was supposed to catch him for sterilisation but he did not see him on the day he came down.

When I called AVA I was told that the dog could not be claimed, as it was a police case…he had attacked someone. All I could bargain for was to keep him alive for 2 days until Friday.

I talked to the police and also to the lady who was bitten. She herself does not want the dog to be killed. Seems Xiao Qiang wanted to play with her handbag and bit her calf when she didn’t let go. She said that the bite wound is not serious and that it looked more like a cat scratch.

A Tribute for Old Ginger

From Eslina’s blog:

Pawprints in my Heart

My lap is too too empty, and cold
the soft resting head no longer there to warm it.
No comfort to be found, no furry body to stroke
my quiet companion gone….

My heart is broken, there are no other words
to write it – this empty ache, this space
you filled, loving always, never judging…
My friend has left, and my hands, arms, all
helpless to stop it.

Little one, fly free, where the fields are green
and filled with friends gone before. I will
carry you always, your pawprints ever beating,
running joyously to greet me whenever I call
and memory stirs in my heart…

Ooops…Bunny is a boy!

Bunny wouldn’t let me handle him until he was released. Then the next day I lifted Bunny up to check the wound…and there was no wound and no belly hair shaved. Puzzled, I looked at his back again …and on closer inspection it looks like a very underdeveloped male. Good that the vet double-checked 🙂

Cinderella has developed an abscess. It started draining yesterday and now the swelling has subsided. She is on antibiotics and I will have to keep her for a few more days. It already looks much better now, starting to dry up.

Old Ginger

Old Ginger is growing thiner and weaker. He has stopped eating on his own. I try to make him comfortable but he likes to curl up on a small stool in the corner most of the time.
