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.
The other day, we were watching YouTube videos on the television, and I wanted to show Björn the video of Lorelai stalking the geese, which he hadn’t seen yet.
After that, YouTube autoplayed the next video, which was the one of Izaak sitting on top of Dashiell.
Dash was intensely interested in seeing him and his buddy on TV. And then the cutest thing happened.
He reached his paw out and touched Zak! It was so sweet, so tentative…but he definitely recognised his friend.
Then a different video autoplayed, one of Angel and Zak outside. And Dash patted Zak’s image again! I have never seen a cat do this before. I have seen them play with images on screen, but not recognise another cat that they know.
I made a little video of him…but he went behind the screen looking for the cats. I did finally capture him patting Zak.
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.
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.
The other day, a little drama unfolded right on our living room sofa.
Dashiell was happily napping in the corner closest to the television, which also happens to get the best sunshine in the early afternoon.
But Izaak wanted to nap there.
So he pulled out the super-stealth licking manoeuver. You start out with just a little friendly licking on the top of the head.
Then, when the target is lulled into docility…
…Zak starts to make his move.
And there you go: Singapuras always get the best napping spot in the house. Regardless if someone is already napping there.
Here’s a little video of Zak assimilating Dash’s napping spot. Resistance is futile!
One feature of the new iPhone 11 Pro is that when you take a regular photo, the camera also takes what Apple calls a “LivePhoto,” which is the photo you took time-lapsed for three or four seconds with a little motion. It’s kind of like those moving pictures in Harry Potter.
I thought it would be interesting to string a bunch of these LivePhotos together into a movie. So…here is what a string of iPhone LivePhotos looks like, put together into a movie.
I’ve written before about how much Izaak enjoys his raw chicken necks.
I mean, he REALLY loves them. Here he is, trying to grab a neck from the bowl.
He actually did manage to snag one!
But then Lorelai happened.
The funny thing is, Dashiell is just as mad for chicken necks as Zak is. He just expresses it differently.
Here’s the full video showing what happens when it’s neck o’clock.
