Right now, my small 1 bedroom apartment is overflowing with boxes, bags, paper, art supplies, and crates.  It’s getting so out of control that I am getting annoyed.  But with 5 events on my plate in next 45 days, I have no choice but to deal with the crazy/chaotic mess that I am creating in my living space.

A friend posted this on his FB page and of course I couldn’t resist.  Yes, it’s an actual cat fashion show.  The Gothamist had a good coverage of the event.  I showed it to John and he said, “when cats revolution come, these people are gonna be the first ones to be guillotined.”

Tigger chillin’

This is Harriet.  I didn’t fully understand the meaning of a scaredy cat until I met Harriet.  She’s so scared of everything that John and I joke about how she will most likely die of a heart attack.   Everything scares her.  The wind, the rain, the doorbell, footsteps, printer printing, clicking of the mouse, cell phone ringing, and the list goes on and on.  But somehow she has managed to survive in the Kim household as long as she has.  We love her dearie and I hope she will be with us for long, long, long time.  She’s also not comfortable showing affection or receiving affection.  She gets super tense and cringes everytime I hold her.  John says it’s because she sees me like Elmyra from Tiny Toons.  I would like to think otherwise….

Okay, I’m that crazy cat lady.  Happy Holidays from, Snickers, Teffie, Harriett, and Tigger!

Yes, I’m the crazy cat lady with 4 cats at home.  But videos like this should make everyone a cat lover.  This is kind of neat since I’ve taught Snickers to give me “high-five” over the weekend.  This kitten is so cute and this trick is just hilarious!  I have NO clue why my friend forwarded me this video…. No clue….

I think even if you don’t like cats, you would find this kind of cute.  A cat, dressed up in different costumes, and entire video is in Japanese….  You gotta love it.

teffie

This is my #2 of 4 cats.  His name is Teffie (Teflon).  Teflon was John’s nickname during college and thought it would be cool to name our first boy cat by that name.  He is a truly gentle and sweet cat, except to short people/females (long story).  Needless to say, he is John’s favorite.  It’s quite amazing to see him run to John whenever, wherever John calls him. 

As John puts it, Teffie feels the pain of the world.  Always tries to save the underdogs, rescue the needy and defend the weak.  And he also likes to be held while he falls asleep.  Here he is, gently observing the world go by.

This is Snickers. She is about 8 years old. She is a very friendly cat to everyone except to the boy cats in the house. We have several theories about her being this way. We think it may be due to the fact that either she’s upset about her bitter divorce with Teffie or she may be possibly blaming Teffie for taking away her babies. Oh yeah, they had 5 kittens together that we gave away.

She used to be my favorite until Tigger came along. But Snickers is very dear to me!

Teffie, kicking it in the dryer.  We had to wash everything in there all over again because they got covered with white cat hair.  Soon after this pix was taken, Tigger decided to bully Teffie out of the dryer and hang out there himself.  Karma is a bitch cause Tigger didn’t know how to get out of the dryer without getting himself hurt.   So he meowed and meowed until John came along to rescue him from this life-threatening predicament he was in.   Yes, the dryer is whole 5 feet off the ground.  Somebody should really take the time to explain to Tigger that he’s a cat….

the OG BFF

I heard this on NPR this morning.  Apparently, there’s been a poll about  true friendships and the average number true frienships we have in our lives.  The poll was complied by a company called “One Poll“.  And the answer is, 3.  On the average, we have 3 true friends.  That works out perfectly for our cats since there’s 4 of them.  They could all have just the right amount of true friends in their lives.

John and I pay $1200 for rent.  We have an entire floor of a house, backyard, garage, driveway, storage, porch, and washer/dryer in the unit.   And if I drive to work, it takes me 20 minutes door to door and mass-transit takes me 45 mins or so on a good day.  This may not mean much to most people, but this will be shocking figures/description for most people living in the tri-state area.

We would love to be here until we have enough saved to buy a house but our landlord just sold the property and we have been apt hunting for the past 3 weeks.  Not an easy process.  Although the rental market is good these days, we had such an incredible deal that it’s hard to beat such figures.

But here’s something couple of shocking things that we realized while apt hunting.  First of all, we are not able to find these “out-of-this” world deals that everyone is talking about.  But more shockingly, we are finding out that ALL landlords just LOVE us.  Mind you, some of them are willing to overlook the fact that we have FOUR cats that will be sharing the apt with us, even when the actual ad had said “NO PETS”.  We were experiencing the “positive” side of racial profiling. 

Yes, it’s a good thing for us, but we were also able to sort of grasp what it would be like not to be Asian, not to look yuppy, and not to speak English fluently.  This is the reality.  We are aware, but also the lack of progress we have made is a bit daunting.
