Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
That's right, there is a new kid in town and his name is Sushi. He is absolutely good looking - with clear blue eyes which he may soon outgrow, dusty fur, brown ears, nose and paws, and a long straight tail. And part of the honey&gazelle Design Studio's induction programme for new employees, we prepared a small cubicle space for him in the next room, complete with kitten friendly toys. We got to admit that his presence in the office has successfully slowed down all operations this week. He has us all wrapped around his tail, and by all, I mean the resident cats too.
Sushi is playful, part-whiney-part-independent, and maybe 300% crazy. As much as he adores his hand-me-down cat toys, courtesy of Trooper and Boba, he clearly loves playing with his long straight tail too. The resident cats are probably very confused with the scent of a new kitty, but we hope that in time to come, the two cats will adore Sushi as much as we adore him. And perhaps grow to enjoy each other's company in the future!
Min: The last time I nursed a young animal is approximately 13 years ago. My family rescued Junior, my late black dog, when he was about 3 months old. He was our best friend and the best pet we ever had. After he passed away, my parents decided that they are done with the heartache and refused to keep another pet. I, on the other hand, have been looking for another furry companion to love.
It has been a crazy journey since we made the decision to adopt Sushi and we cannot be more blessed to provide a home filled with care and love for this hyperactive kitty. Sushi is growing so well and I'm elated to see the amount of love and attention he is currently getting. I guess that fella is just making up for lost time, yea? So yes, there's a new kid in town, and I'm officially a proud catmom. Welcome to your new home, Sushi-Choy Chia!
Jia: It has been close to three long years since I nursed and cared for a little kitten. Trooper was only 3 weeks old when we rescued him from a crazy man who wanted to cook him! He is now a fully grown spoilt crazy cat and one of the loves of my life. I had totally forgotten how tiny a kitten can be until Sushi showed up at our studio this week! And, let's cue all the past memories of baby Trooper. Combining my past memories and photos of baby Trooper and the now current state of baby Sushi, this week is a complete cuteness overload!
I have spent the last week in a super joyous mood because of a new kitty and my boyfriend's birthday. Kittens are just so so adorable and their tininess really entraps all your time and attention. Even my boyfriend is deeply enamoured with Sushi and we spent a whole Sunday afternoon at Min's place, just playing and spoiling the kitty rotten. Aw, Sushi, you are such a heart-stealer!
How has your week been? :)
With Love, Min+Jia.
