Rue is Growing Up!

•November 10, 2009 • 2 Comments

Remember Rue, the little kitten I found on a dark street?  (story HERE)

She’s now as clever and as quirky as a happy little kitteh should be!  She’s growing to be a real beauty.  Her markings are that of a classic tabby (swirls on the sides, parallel lines along her spine).  She also loves to parade in costume, is comfortable wearing a shirt, walks on a leash, and plays FETCH!  (see video HERE)

Rue just charms everyone, even the Vets in Practice vets!  Oh, and the best part is, Rue & Qish (my Siamese) are just inseparable 🙂

from TINY —


to a little bit grown-up

This blanket serves as her surrogate mother — she sucks on it until she falls asleep.

with her best friend, Qish.

MacBook Pro is ♥.

For a long time, I have been contemplating on getting a Mac.  However, for economic reasons, I decided to settle for a sub-notebook (HP Mini) which I was supposed to get as soon as the bonus gets to my account.  Since it’s not powerful enough to process my photos, I will have to upgrade my desktop as well, which would probably cost as much as the little laptop.  So upon further pondering, I considered Mac again.  And I will never regret it!

Since the start of the week, I have obsessed about the new MacBook White (unibody) which will be released in November.  I love how it looks and I love that everything’s white on it.  It just looks so fresh and clean.  I’ve also considered the MacBook Pro but the $300 difference makes me rethink my option.  Not that I mind the extra power of the Pro, but I also want an iPhone, you see.  So my heart is all for the white, which should go well with the new white iPhone.  Then I saw the SALE.

Maybe to lure people to the mall instead of going to the cemetery, SM Megamall announced its 3-Day Mallwide Sale.  I’m no fan of sales anymore, mainly because I now balk at picking items from crowded areas.  And I don’t like spending on impulse buys that I end up NOT using (I still have a closet-ful of that).  But then, low EQ-ed that I am, I chided my mom to go visit the PowerMac Center again.  We were there on Wednesday night and that’s when I decided that I will just wait for the new MacBook White unibody.  But when I saw the small, partly obscured announcement that they are on 10% off, my heart stopped.  That means the MacBook Pro is only P65K, from P72K!  That means it’s only a few thousand peso more expensive than the soon-to-be-launched MacBook White unibody!  That means the MacBook Pro is now affordable!  And that also means that the money has to be spent NOW rather than in December!  So yeah, to cut the story short, my low EQ ruled and my mom’s bank account was raided and I have a “loan” to pay to my mom while I enjoy my MacBook Pro NOW!

So yes, I am in love.  Very much.  MacBook Pro is love.  PURE LOVE ☺

Kitteh Purr-ito!

I Has New Kitteh!

•July 27, 2009 • 1 Comment

I was walking on a Friday night along Lapu-Lapu St. (Makati City) when a tiny orange feline greeted me.  She looked like an orphan, and when I petted her, she responded in the sweetest way she can.  Then when I started walking again, she started following me.  She was so small that she was running feebly to catch up with me, with her itty-bitty paws almost tumbling on the pavement.  I took a second look, and decided that it will be a hassle to Qish to keep this tiny fellow.

But a hundred steps and a few minutes later (I couldn’t see/hear the kitten anymore), my conscience was bugging me.  This little fellow will surely die without the warmth of a home!  So I decided to walk back to pick her  up.  By then, she was following two students who were discussing whether to take her home or not.  When they said that they couldn’t bring her home, I knew I was destined to be her keeper.  So we went straight to Vets in Practice to make sure that she is healthy enough to co-habit with my big cat Qish.  Doc Melay advised me to put her in quarantine for one week while taking her antibiotics, so that she does not infect Qish in case she is sick.

When we got home, the big cat was not a hospitable host.  He started hissing and was disturbed the whole night!  While the kitten is still in quarantine (she still is not allowed to interact with Qish), I hope Qish will get used to the kitten’s smell.  I told him it’s his decision if we will keep the kitten, but I’m really hoping that they will get along well.  If not, I will have to re-home the kitten or bring him to CARA or PAWS 😦  But I think he is slowly getting more comfortable with the kitten around, who is still confined in a cage.

The kitten is the cutest thing!  I’m thinking of naming her Rue Noire (nickname: Rue) or Mata-leão (nickname: Leão), or Deuxième (nickname:  Deux).  I know, I know.  I’m such an OC when it comes to naming pets! 😀
