Sleeping Kitties

I don’t know why but looking at my cats sleeping always bring the ‘aww’  factor in me. I know they’re not my kids but it feels like watching babies sleep. So peaceful, so restful, you just can’t help but go, “Aww….” You just don’t want to disturb them sleeping. So you lower your voice, whispering even and in some cases, tiptoeing around them so not to rouse them awake. Browsing through my pics, I have a fair amount of my cat family sleeping. Here’s some of them. Enjoy 😀

The Wonderful Bebel Bella, the matriarch

Calm between Joyyo and Lila




One Sunny Sunday with Joyyo

My cats, like any other cats, like to doze off under the sun. However there’s this spot in the front ‘yard’ (it’s so tiny it doesn’t feel like a yard) that Joyyo likes most. He likes to doze off there more so than his siblings. But of course every now and then they would join him for a grooming fest. One of my friend likes Joyyo so much that she nicknamed him Prince Joyyo. Well, he does love his camera…

Nothing beats dozing of on those stones. Ika calls that my cats’ stone massage therapy pot.  They really like it. I have amassed quite a number of Joyyo on the stone pot in various sleep poses. These were taken last Sunday, so it is only appropriate to present this for Sunday viewing  😀

His solitude is broken. His siblings want some hot stone therapy too.  The top cat is Lila, the little one we often called Joyyo 2.0 due to his remarkable similarity to his older bro.

Well now the whole gang is here minus Bella, their mother. All 4 are siblings. They have the same mom, though only God knows who their father is 😉

Even the sunniest Sunday must end. Must be tiring to look cute all the time. Have a good sleep Joyyo and Lilla 🙂 How’s your Sunday?

The View from the 33rd floor

I’m inspired by ms. Carla and her love of New Orleans. As I’m going through my photo file I realised that Babeh (my nickname for my darling husband) took a fair amount of photos about whatever took his fancy really. Upon reading this I thought why not start now? So this morning is my first attempt at photo-blogging his photos. These were all taken using his DSLR camera. I have no idea of the technical details. Hope you like it.

A cloudy morning in the office

Smog creates the grey clouds. On the rare chance of a bright blue sky it is actually very pretty.

A concert hall in a mall near his office

We’ve been to a concert a few times here. The acoustic is good and the location is not too far from our house. The mall is a different story. I wish they didn’t create the mall, just the concert hall and a food court.

The bridge to and from the TransJakarta, a mass public transit bus, connecting from various stops

Haven’t use it myself, have this innate fear of wanting to jump upon crossing bridges. Not cool.

A collection of shiny glossy skyscraper on Sudirman, the premium CBD in Jakarta

I think this one was taken in the afternoon, the sky looks grayer.

Everyday traffic through Sudirman, not at its peak.

The famous Semanggi or Clover bridge. Was build in the 60’s I think.

Joyyo, lounging enjoying life , doing what cat does best 😀

Well, I took this pic on my nifty little Blackberry camera. Can’t really have a photo blog without any of my cats making an appearance now can we?

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Joyyo si Ogo

Mama Bella dan Stella

Waktu Bella lahiran, 3 anak yang pertama dia lahirkan sendiri. Tapi karena melihat dia kok sepertinya masih rada gimana gitu, sepertinya masih ada anak lagi. Daku jadi bidan dadakan deh, ngelus2 perutnya trus kasih semangat supaya si Bella punya tenaga buat mendorong. Dan benar… keluarlah sebundelan kucing kecil yang diberi nama Stella.

Mungkin karena lahirannya aku bantu, jadi sama si Stella ini ada rasa sayang yang agak lebih dikit gitu. Dibanding sodara2nya, si Stella ini yang paling kalem tapi ‘ganas’. Klo udah bercokol mimi sama emaknya pasti nggak bisa diganggu gugat ama yang lain. Gak heran dia paling ndud dibanding sodara2nya, the Little Lempers.

Menjadi Stello

Seiring dengan membesarnya the little lempers, lama2 jelaslah klo si Stella itu…. Stello! Dah, ganti nama. Eh, pas babenya anak2 pulang haji, melihat si Stello matanya kayak pake topeng item gitu berkomentarlah, “Stello kok kayak Zorro ya?” Wah si kakak girang banget berubah lagilah namanya jadi Zorro.

Trus biasalah sama kakak kan dimanja-manja jadi ada nama kecilnya misal Bella jadi Bebel, so Zorro jadi Joyyo. Tapi si ade nggak mau kalah, emang kakak doang yang bisa ganti2 nama kucing? Menurut Ade, daripada Joyyo lebih bagus…. Jokko!!!

Zorro kemudian Jokko

Tapi sejak diganti jadi Jokko emang dia jadi lebih kolokan. Lari sana lari sini, ganggu Lila, ganggu Bella, sampai sekarang hobinya yang terbaru adalah… gigit kaki! Semua dah pernah jadi ‘korban’, kaki kakak, ade, babeh, aku… Jiaah… Selain gigit kaki, dia juga demen ngintil. Kek pagi ini aku diintilin kemana-mana sampai ke kamar mandi. Waktu mau ngaji aja masih itu kaki mau digigit-gigit.

Kucing cowok kali ya? Jadi jail bin konyol gitu. Emang si Joyyo ini menggemaskan sih, patut untuk di kremus. Mungkin juga karena sering dikremus ya jadi kolokan? Entahlah yang pasti kita semua sayaaang sama Joyyo si Ogo 😀  (kecuali babeh)
