Aby-a-Day – 24 Maj 2020: Walking home after taking out the recyclables (Cinema Sunday)

We’ve trained Alfred, Lorelai and Izaak to come along with us when we take out the garbage and recyclables.

And they know, when we let them out when we’re carrying bags, that we’re not just “going outside,” but we’re going out to the bins. These three all know how to walk home from the bus stop from vet visits, and the bins are just next to the bus stop.

They love it…and they do know the difference. Dashiell hasn’t had enough practice outside to do this…and Angel is happier at home.

Rory so loves to run free outside. I say she is the very embodiment of joy when she runs.

Sometimes, she even climbs trees!

Here’s the video I made on the way back (note the Swedish social distancing).

Aby-a-Day – 10 Maj 2020: Remember when we used to go to cat shows..? (Cat Show Cinema Singapura Sunday)

A friend on Facebook posted a photo of her cats today with the caption: “Is this really all we do now? We can’t leave?! When is the next cat show?! We’re tired of sitting home!!!!”

Dude…I so know that feel.

Because we weren’t able to go to our favourite show in Örebro this year, we haven’t been to a show since November, when we went with Lorelai and Izaak to Turku. It’s the one thing I really miss since the pandemic started.

So, I went back in my backlog of photos and found this set of Zak at the Turku show, after our collection of show wand toys fell over.

He was so cute, playing with the toys. We mainly only ever play with wand toys at shows, so this was a treat.

I even made a short video of it (click on the image to view it on another tab in Flickr).

Aby-a-Day – 3 Maj 2020: Just some cats outside in springtime…(Cinema Sunday)

Yesterday, we took the cats outside for some exercise. We’ve had some days of rain, but even though it was a bit cloudy yesterday, the cats wanted to go out, so out we let them…

Lorelai, of course, LOVED it.

As did Alfred.

Dashiell, as I posted yesterday, had his own kind of fun outside.

When Izaak wasn’t striking poses…

…he was exploring the great outdoors with Rory.

I wish I could be as joyful as Freddy running outside in the daisies.

Here’s a short video of the four of them outside.

Aby-a-Day – 26 April 2020: Lorelai REALLY loves sand (Cinema Sunday)

As I posted last week, Lorelai loves the sand in the play areas in our apartment område.

The other day, Rory and Izaak helped me take out some recyclables (they love doing that, and they always know what we’re doing when they see the bags), and on the way back, we had to stop at the sand at the bottom of the slide near our building.

Once again, Rory rolled around in her beloved sand.

Zak…seemed perplexed.

I made a little video of her rolling about so you could see her in action.

Aby-a-Day – 29 Mars 2020: Izaak and Angel outside (Cinema Sunday)

It seems like an odd pairing, but when we go outside, Izaak and Angel pair up together.

It’s actually pretty adorable, because they generally weigh almost exactly the same, around 3.4kg (7.5lbs), which makes them roughly the same size. Alfred and Dashiell are the big boys, and Lorelai is our tiny little girl.

You can see how much bigger Dash is compared to the two of them.

But look how cute this is! They’re almost holding tails!

Here’s a video of the two of them. It’s accidentally slow motion, but you can see how they make a sweet, if strange, couple.

Other People’s Singas: Life with Misha

Today in the Facebook Singapura Group, a Polish man named Lucasz posted a link to a YouTube video showing him trying to work on his laptop wish Misha, his Singapura.

Yeah…I know that feel.

Aby-a-Day – 22 Mars 2020: Lorelai and the Geese (Cinema Sunday)

It started with Alfred.

He’s the first one who ran towards the lake.

But Lorelai took it to a whole other level.

She decided to HUNT the geese. Who probably outweigh her. Here’s a video of Freddy, but mainly Rory, stalking the geese.
