A couple of days ago, my dad and I rescued a kitten! We are now proud cat-parents to 3 weeks old Sushi, the tiniest and most adorable kitten ever. We rescued Sushi from a drain on a rainy Monday morning. A wet and scared Sushi was stuck and was almost washed away by the heavy flow of rain water since he weighs only about 250g. He is so tiny! It was a speedy rescue mission and my dad attached a scoop to a bamboo pole and heaved it over the tall fence to where the kitty was. Smart Sushi jumped straight in and we have kept him warm since then.
Now that I am surrounded by Sushi and our resident office cats, Trooper and Boba, I have officially become a cat lady. All I think about every minute of every day are cats, cats and more cats. In this Curate post, Jia and I have put together a wishlist of cat supplies that we would like to have for the feline loves in our lives. Ahhh, what a wonderful world! Meowww~
1 // Giantex Pet Hammock
Sushi is currently sleeping in a huge cardboard box. Athough they say that cats love cardboard boxes, I still would like to get a cushy bed for him. I was attracted to this hammock bed the very moment I saw it. The bright and bold pop of colour somehow makes the hammock bed very inviting and appealing. Now, is this hammock for me or for Sushi?
2 // Drinkwell Pagoda Water Fountain
I was slightly taken aback when Jia told me that Trooper likes to take a drink from a running tap. Strange, I thought cats hate water. After reading around, I found out that water fountains can hydrate and entertain cats. Cats absolute love it! I can't wait to get one so that Sushi can load up on his water intake. #anxiouscatmom
3 // Cat Washroom-Nightstand Pet House
How fancy and chic is this cat litter box! I can imagine adding this cat washroom in a nice cosy corner of my future house. Now that we have a cat, my future house may have to include some cat-friendly features! I love how functional and aesthetically-pleasing this cat washroom is. Besides the fantastic design for storage, I really like how kittycats can feel safe and have their private moments while clearing their bowels. I'm sold!
4 // Cat Haven Large Cat Tree
If I can only have one wish granted from this grand wishlist, I would really like for this cat tree dream to come true. I have always wanted a tree house, especially so after reading the many adventures of Famous Five. This cat tree is such a dream for me and my kittycat! Just imagine the adventures the kitty can have in this cat tree! Major love!
5 // Whack A Mouse Cat Toy
I can see Trooper, Boba, and Sushi being entertained for hours with this toy. Anything that works up the curiosity of my two kitties is a winner and I am hoping that this would also help to sharpen Boba and Sushi’s hunting skills. After reading the reviews on Amazon, I am excited to use other smaller toys with the box to keep them pumped up and ready to pounce!
6 // NoBowl Feeding System
I first came across the NoBowl Feeding System on Kickstarter and after reading up on it, I was completely sold. It is finally produced and ready for shipping, and I am so excited to receive it! Trooper is a gobbler. He scarfs and barfs his kibble lunch at least once a month because he wants to eat all he can in the fastest time possible and then get to playing immediately. Here’s hoping the NoBowl helps him to portion his food intake appropriately!
7 // Catnip Fortune Cookies
Trooper always steals toys from Boba. He is sharper and faster in comparison because Boba is a special needs kitty. Thus, I am always looking out for toys that wouldn’t catch the fancy of Trooper but would hold the attention of Boba in the long run. This Catnip Fortune Cookies is super cute and just the toy for Boba as he wholeheartedly loves catnip while Trooper does not respond to catnip at all. I love the little fortunes written on the toys and the Chinese take-out box that comes with them!
8 // LooLoo Wheel Tower Scratch
The only real estate I am genuinely interested in is in cat houses and towers. I am always checking them out whenever I pass a pet store or when I am browsing around online for cat toys. This cat tower caught my eye because of its upgraded hamster wheel concept! Everyone has been calling Trooper a fat cat recently, so I think it is time he got more intensive exercise. Love the height and various shelves and activities on this tower too! This is most definitely a worthy investment.
Do you have a cat? What products or tips can you give to a new cat mama?
