Feeling Hot

It’s really hot here in Korea. Like fry-an-egg-on-the-pavement (sidewalk for the Americans) hot. Our walks are limited to super early in the morning before the pavement heats up, or late at night when it has had a chance to cool off. The rest of the day I stay inside, but we can’t run our aircon 24:7 and no it’s not because of fan death (according to Koreans, you can die from using your fan too much)

So we have to find alternative ways to keep cool. Here is my list of things you can make your human do for you to keep you cool during the last, overwhelmingly hot month of Korean summer.

1. Eat Watermelon~ Yep, you heard me. Make your human buy some delicious watermelon for the two of you to share. But don’t eat too much or you’ll regret it on your bathroom breaks.

2. Make your Human freeze you some ice to lick. It will keep your drinking water cool all day. The human can even use stock cubes to add delicious flavours to your ice. If your human does it in an ice-cube tray, they can be added to your drinking water. But what my human usually does it reuse pint-sized cardboard milk cartons. Once it has frozen she can peel off the carton and I have a block of ice to lick. Unfortunately she has no photos of this because she is stupid and doesn’t plan ahead so here is a photo from the internet of stock flavoured cubes.

3. This may sound counter-productive,Β but try closing the window and pulling down the blinds. If you run the aircon for an hour before your human leave then the apartment stays cooler because your blind is keeping the heat from the sun out. (We have to close the blind too or the foster Kyo goes behind the blind and then forgets how to get back off of the window sill)

4. When your human is not at work, have them set up a paddling pool. We use an old bottom of a cat litter tray (thoroughly cleaned first, thank you) Now, I haven’t actually used this one. But I like the effort my human goes through in filling it up for me.

5. If, like me, you mostly eat dry food- consider adding more wet food during the summer as it will help you to stay hydrated. You can also mix half wet and half dry together in your bowl and leave it in the fridge for a while for a nice cooling meal.

So those are my summer tips, yes I realise summer is almost over-but you wouldn’t know it from the Korean weather. 32 degrees today- that’s just my room temperature. Do you have any tips or tricks on staying cool in the summer? Let us know in the comments πŸ™‚

Pamper attack!

I’m not sure whats going on today. The human got home really late last night so we got to have lovely snuggles in the morning~ but after our lovely bonding playfight on her bed she made me have a shower~ not cool

image

This is me post bathβ–² and this is the kittens trying to work out why I’m not playing with them β–Ό

image

image

image

They wouldn’t leave me alone so I went and slept on a different bed~ minus the towel now that I was almost dry

image

image

image

They really love this bed of mine~ can’t wait until they have homes and beds of their own and I can reclaim all that I have had to share ^^

Although the human has been cleaning and tidying the whole apartment which usually only happens when we have guests or when new fosters come in. I hope its a guest because we are definitely at full capacitu animal wise.

Speak soon ^^

Panda and the Green Eyed Monster

Yesterday we had another amazing play date with Leeloo~ we played on my roof for SO long! It was amazing~ Leeloo can jump so high and I can run super fast πŸ˜‰ but I know she wanted to play with the kittens…

The kittens are getting a lot of attention at the moment and they are taking over my life. First they shared my bed

image

Then they pushed me out all together

image

So that I had to sleep in my crate πŸ˜₯

image

Then today I was all snuggled up on my human since they had decided to nap in MY bed AGAIN, when Maru decided to sleep on my human too! And he got her neck! My favourite snuggly place!

image

image

Can you see me on her lap? And now when it comes to dinner… Tonight the kittens get tuna! A shop keeper gave the human free tins for buying cat litter

image

image

They aren’t sharing either πŸ˜₯ Cats are mean. I’m not saying that because I’m jealous either!

….honest…

For Potential Kitten adopters

So as you know, the human and I are fostering a pair of super cute kittens, with the aim of finding them a forever home.

image

As you can see I’ve grown quite attached to them ^^ but we hope that they find their own homes soon before they become to attached to us.

image

In light of this I’d like to tell you about them a bit more^^ At the moment the daily routine of the kittens is as follows~

7.30~9am play time with me (the human empties their litter box during this time) 9~9.15am the human gives them breakfast and fresh water

9.15~5.15pm the human is at work so they are kept in a pen. In the pen the have a crate with a pillow for snuggles, a cardboard box with a pillow and towel for snuggles, a litter box, food and water, and some toys.

When the human gets home she lets me play with them until they need a nap then it’s time for my walk ^^ when we get back the kittens are still sleeping but the human opens their pen so they can come play if they want to.

They usually have dinner sometime between 8 or 9pm and bed time is between 10.30~11.30 The kittens are so playful! They play with each other, with me, with the human and sometimes they will play with their own tails ^^

image

A lot of times I dont want to play with them so I will snuggle with my human or sit on the stairs but the kittens eventually find me and meow at me until I play with them.

image

The human is training them to allow her to touch their paws and mouths, and to get them used to cleaning their ears (I actually LOVE having my ears cleaned) so they are super ready to find their forever homes ^^

My friend Lucy wrote about what to expect and what to purchase for your new feline friend so I’ll just give you the links~

Playdates with Kittens!

Friday was the best day EVER!

When the human returned she played with me and the kittens and then gave the kittens a nap break and snuggled up with me to watch a Korean drama~ I was a little disapointed tjat we hadn’t gone on a walk but I love snuggles ^^

image

Next thing I know I’m being woken up and she is getting ready to leave! I did my best to let her know I wanted to come to by dancing around her legs and running to the door to whine. But instead of getting me ready, she put the kittens in their carrier!! I was so confused, was she taking away my new toys? Or were they getting a walk while I was left at home?!

image

Finally the human began getting me ready and soon we were off. After a quick potty break we were soon in a taxi ~~ the kittens were sooo noisy that I felt bad for them and tried to calm them down by letting them know that I was there too ^^

Soon we had arrived~ I could barely contain my excitement~ Leeloos house! I had a great time, I raced around and played with Leeloo and got some snuggles in with Leeloos mummy~ my second favourite human ^^

image

Then it was kitten time. Slowly the humans took the kittens out and let us get used to them. Leeloo fell in love with Nare (λ‚˜λ ˆ) whereas Maru (마루) is still my favourite ^^

image

It was so good to see the kittens be playful with another dog, especially one as active as Leeloo~ the human and I were worried that it was only because I was so nervous of the kittens that they played with me. They also did well with Leeloos mum, λ‚˜λ ˆ especially enjoyed her snuggle time.

We took them to the vet today just to get a checkup and they are healthy but the travel stressed them out a little too much so the next playdate should be here, and we wont put them in a taxi again until its time for them to go to their adoptive homes ^^

image

Leeloo’s mummy bought the kittens some new toys but they have been so tired from our busy schedule and so only played for a minute before curling up together in their box.

Me? I’m tired too! Heres my new toy which my human bought in the hope that I would like it as much as Leeloo’s rabbit

Paws and Purrs

Saturday was a very strange day. When we woke up the human got me ready for a walk~ Yay! But it was raining 😦

image

I had to wear this rain coat over the top of my tshirt. γ…Žγ…Ž
When we came back from our walk the human started making a new pen downstairs. I was really confused because my bedroom is upstairs and she used weird things like a cardboard box and something called a “litter box”

image

image

But she closed it off and I wasn’t inside so I didnt think it was important until….

image

Can you see them? Hmmm, how about a close up?

image

Thats right~ there are 2 foster kittens! The human is making them profiles tonight and hopefully they will be adopted soon β™₯ they are very strange though, they are so tiny. I feel so big next to them, I like to herd them onto my bed~ I’m hoping for snuggles but they are too excited about exploring to sleep with me πŸ˜₯

image

image

^forever alone πŸ˜₯

Maybe they will relax with me tonight? I’ll have some videos of them uploaded tonight so expect another post, until then~ Anyeong! (bye)
