Angry Kitty!


A trip to our local pet store is always exciting. There's bound to be something new and cute for us to go oooh and ahhh over, like a new kitty condo or some cute tees for the kids. Last weekend was a special treat as a new litter of kittens just arrived and boy, were they an adorable bunch!




I happened to have my camera with me; so there I was, happily snapping away instead of shopping for pet supplies. I tried counting them through the glass door, but there were so many kitties, and they all kept on moving about, trying to push their way through the glass door, that I kept on losing count!



Among this adorable bunch, there was a particular black kitty that was extra ferocious. Can you spot which one? He reminded me of a black Persian I used to have by the name of Marvin. A friend gave it to me. The first few times I saw it at her place, Marvin was a cute, fluffy kitten, who loved to roll over and snuggle up to you. I was hooked and agreed to take him home. The moment I brought him home, he became very aggressive and made himself the King of my cats! I had several other cats then. I saw Marvin, on several occasions, used his huge paws to fight off my other cats, which were trying to "welcome" him into his new home. He'd hiss and snarl, almost like a wild cat, rather than the soft-natured lazy, fat Persian he was supposed to be! And once, when my brother was lying down on his tummy, Marvin, for no apparent reason decided to pounce on his back and gave him a beating too!



Truly the most vicious cat I ever owned, Marvin was totally the opposite of the 3 friendly cats I have now. He was also a shade of black and brown, just like this little tiger here! All the kittens you see here are Persian mix by the way, and each one fetches from RM800 onwards. When I finally moved away to start my shopping, he would not let up, look at him go! It was as though he was calling out to me to stop shopping and buy him instead. Adorable isn't he?



We finally got around to buying the actual stuff we came for and even found a new kitty treat for the kids. And speaking of treats, here's a special one for all cat lovers out there. I found a cool site where you can enjoy great coupon treats and deals from a number of established pet stores such as Petco, Entirely Pets and PETsMART. Aptly named Best Online Coupons, this site offers a wide variety of the best discount coupons and promotion codes, which are updated constantly. Isn't it great to be able to shop and save at the same time? My main interest lies in the pet coupons of course, but there are many other categories to browse including clothing, computers, and even travel. You can also find unique gift ideas and cool gadgets from Sharper Image, Hammacher Schlemmer and Brookstone here, so drop by if you're looking for a new place to do your online shopping!



Oh and before we left the store, I took one last shot of the angry kitty. It looks like the fellow is just not giving up huh? Too bad I just don't have the space to house another kitten. Plus, if I do bring this one home, can you imagine how much bullying poor Phoebe might have to take? ;)

LJP April 10, 2008 1:24 PM

What's up with that cat? Should call him the cat equivalent of "Cujo"!

Mariuca April 10, 2008 1:25 PM

LJ!! Sorry dear, I got disconnected last night, so terus tidur!

Oh they are adorable aren't they, especially the blacky! Geram tengok dia jahat nak keluar, mcm hantu he he he!!

The shop is really clean LJ, there's an Indonesian girl who takes care of the cats and she keeps the store spic and span! :)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 1:27 PM

PS. Marvin was one of my old cats, not in this picture, but he looks a lot like the naughty black one here! :)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 1:43 PM

Raghav, ha ha ha!! So cute that you're afraid of cats, specially the Marvin type huh? Oh I was kinda afraid of my Marvin back then, but of course I had to put up a brave front and show him who's the Master! :)

Oh yes, some ppl do beleieve black cats bring bad luck, but this one here is too cute to be evil lolz... :)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 1:45 PM

RoxiticusDH April 10, 2008 2:38 PM

Stopped in to vote for you in BotB in the middle of the night. Yes, I'm an investment banker, my secret to finding time to blog is that I get very little sleep. Rex is away tonight so I may not sleep at all. Have a good one.
Roxiticus Desperate Housewives

P.S. -- I noticed you don't have EntreCard....you could have even MORE friends!!

Mariuca April 10, 2008 3:06 PM

Hi Hazel, I'm actually at ur blog right now, thanks for the tag dearie! :)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 3:10 PM

Ha ha, so cute of u Roxy to come vote for me in the middle of the night! Oh I'm a night owl too and do most of my blogging then. Come to think of it, I get very little sleep sometimes too he he... oh thanks for reminding me abt the Entrecard, I'm still not too sure what it's all about though! :)

Bobby April 10, 2008 3:30 PM

Hola Marzie...hehe:) I just love that snarling little black kitty, he looks vicious! Entrecard is easy to use and has given me an extra 25 or so visitors per day. It works a little like my top spots but is a little better. I haven't actually used my earned points to buy ads on other sites, but will one day...I'm too tired this week:)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 3:53 PM

Oh isn't he adorable Bobby? Ha ha ha!! I bet you would like to take him too yes?

I'm at ur blog now Bobby, let me see if I can figure out this entrecard thingy if u have it at ur site, thanks! :):):)

J@n!ce April 10, 2008 3:58 PM

Marzie, so fun...I can imagine all the kitties rushing towards your camera. I'm scare of the black one. There is this particular white one (see your last pic). Look so innocent lah.... as though saying "bring me home... bring me home..." awwww... so cute :)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 4:02 PM

Janice!! I knew you'd be afraid of the black one muahahahahhahaha!!! Yeah, this one is nothing like Benji or the rest okay, this one is garang huh? Still so cute though!

I'm over at your site now woman! :)

LadyJava April 10, 2008 4:15 PM

No wonder lahh.. suddenly you went so quiet!! hahha... smokey is hitam tu.. but the gentlest cat (or at least with human lah) I've ever seen.. so manja!!!

Cian si hitam tu dah kena panggil hantu...lolzz//

Eh I want to hire this girl to clean my hse lahh...heheh

Mariuca April 10, 2008 4:26 PM

LOL! Hantu yang comel LJ!! I bet this blacky would make a fun active cat! Yeah some black cats are really manja kan? So not the evil ppl think they are cause of their color! ;)

Oh before the girl can come over to ur place to clean up, might as well she drop by my place first, since I'm so near he he! :)

LadyJava April 10, 2008 4:30 PM

yelah cian tau smokey.. actually he was supposed to be sold at the shop that we put him when he was a kitten (you know i used to breed and sell them kan?)..Anyway.. tak laku you know.. and the store suruh kita bawak balik.. he said black cats pple scared...lolzz.. now i tell you if i'm giving Smokey away.. berebut org nak dia coz he's so big and fluffy and manja!!

Mariuca April 10, 2008 4:37 PM

Alamak ye ke? I knew u used to breed and sell cats but I didn't know Smokey the Bear kena reject, poor thing! Anyway, good thing jugak u brought him home, cause now he has a very happy home and you get to enjoy all of his fluffiness and cuteness! :)

LadyJava April 10, 2008 4:40 PM

Ah ah.. you should hear him when he meow.. so cute ..very high pitch.. tak macam kucing langsung... eh I voted for you at Blog Battle already...actually from there lah ni...

Oh pasal maid tu.. ok pass her over here once she's finished at your place..lol...main pass2 pulak eh...

Mariuca April 10, 2008 4:44 PM

I'd love that LJ. Phoebe and Smokey should have a meowing contest to see which one sounds more alien!! He he..

Woo hoo, thanks for the vote woman...come on Botb! LOLZ... Eh, kesian the girl kita jadikan maid kita ha ha ha ha!! :)

LadyJava April 10, 2008 4:48 PM

GP! I also just entered the BotB..vote for me ok.. thanks!!

Ah ah nanti one day if i can I will record his voice and post and let the whole know how my "macho" smokey sounds like when he meows...!! loolzz

Mariuca April 10, 2008 4:52 PM

Kesian Smokey takde suara. But that's what make him unique yes? :)

LJ, consider it done! Launching my rocket now to vote for u!! :):):)

LadyJava April 10, 2008 4:55 PM

Muahssss... thanks woman :)

Farah Deen April 10, 2008 6:32 PM

GP, ye la memang cute la those kitties. and yes, i could point put the black fierce one from the bunch! LOL

i have never entered a pet shop and I really have no idea where they are or what they sell in there. From you pics, I could see some interesting thingy pun. Just like I shop for kids stuff and know a lot abt them, you shop a lot for the kitties!

snack hairball caught my attention. seems like it comes in various colours??those are food or toys or something else? and this particular pet shop looks good, i mean, mcm VIP gak la all these pets in there kan? :)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 10:00 PM

No worries LJ and looks like our battle is still not over yet! Slow kan today? :)

Mariuca April 10, 2008 10:04 PM

Ha ha ha, cute kan this blacky Farah? Garang gila! ;)

It's a pity you can't visit a pet store Farah (cause of ur allergies), some of them are really cool. My fave one is Pet Safari at IKANO. It's huge and filled with so many different pets and stuff. All sorts of toys and baju there, it's like a mini zoo! You can also bring your pets to the store but must clean up any mess they make. A bit pricey but once in a while it's nice to shop there! :)

He he that hairball snack is food. Its to help reduce the furballs that our kitties sometimes throw up! :(

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives April 11, 2008 12:38 AM

Zoomed in on a rocket...LJ sure has it all over me as top commenter here...
EntreCard is another way, like BlogExplosion, to drive traffic to your blog. You use credits to "advertise" on the EntreCard widget on Other People's Blogs (OPB) and when visitors to those sites click on the EntreCard widget they come to you.

Speaking of LadyJava, I also just signed up for SocialSpark and blogged about it...check out Roxiticus Desperate Housewives for the details. I'm kinda hooked on all the IZEA stuff, more sleepless nights!

Emila Yusof April 11, 2008 4:18 AM

Aiyoo garangnya! Tapi comel ya amat!

phatelara April 11, 2008 4:29 AM

Hello Marzie! Wahhh almost 30 minutes spent just reading your comments. Hehe I love kitties but I for sure cannot afford imported breeds. Hehe my friend used to have a black kitty as ferocious as the one in the pic. Suka gigit2 jari kaki kita! Anyway, happy Friday and happy weekend! Dropped in from BE today. =)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 4:51 AM

Hey Roxy, it's 4.47am here, wonder what time is it at ur place! ;)

Thanks for the explanation, I got some info from LJ as well. In fact, I am in the midst of registration right now lolz..

Social Spark is by invitation only right? I guess I will have to wait to be invited first before I can get all excited abt it! Nite nite Roxy! :)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 4:52 AM

He he, cute gila kan Emila? Kalau Yassin nampak, I wonder if he'll be brave enough to try and catch this lil kitty! :)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 5:03 AM

Yay! Debbie is here, how're u feeling now? Better after the soup? ;)

Another garang black kitty! Kalau gigit-gigit jari, dia tengah bermanja tu! This one here, no matter how garang, is still so cute yeah? Happy weekend to u too dear! :)

Bobby April 11, 2008 6:05 AM

I gave you 50 ECard credits to get you started Genie Princess (only because ur my friend)!!!! Have a great day:)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 6:14 AM

Bobby!!! I see it and I'm so happy to get this pressie from you YAY, you're da best la Bobby! I'm gonna have a wonderful day now, thanks so much! :):):)

Nessa April 11, 2008 8:35 AM

Whoa, Blackie's mean isn't he/she? Macam nak cari gaduh je... hehe. I like that cute kittie next to Blackie (2nd pic), looks so adorable :)

I think Blackie didn't like his pic taken! LOL

EC April 11, 2008 9:27 AM

hey thanks for coming by my blog! I love your header as well, and voted for you earlier :-) love the cat pictures as well!

Take care!

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives April 11, 2008 10:12 AM

I see the beautiful Mariuca EntreCard! I have a new one, too, courtesy of my friend Matt over at Meltwater. Torrents. Meanderings. Delta.

SocialSpark is by invitation only, but you can sort of send yourself an invitation to join us in the club...stop by Roxiticus Desperate Housewives and click on the SocialSpark links in my post about Moooooooommmmy Bloggers...it is still fairly current so you shouldn't have to scroll down too far. I think Social Spark gives me credit for the clickthroughs. I signed up for the Beta test about a month ago and the invitation from Social Spark came yesterday. I've already done a few posts on IZEA's various services and no joke $$ aside I really like them. Just wait 'til I start my Roxiticus Desperate Housewives e-mail newsletter through Zookoda...you'll be jumpin' on the bandwagon!

So that you can be fair to LJ and others with your SocialSpark traffic, I think I clicked through from any number of sites' SocialSpark links and signed up again and again for the Beta test because their automated system never seemed to confirm that I had registered. Probably just my nasty Windows Vista system and Bill Gates' Dog at work.

It is 10:00pm (Eastern Daylight Time) on Thursday night in the Roxiticus Valley as I write this comment...have a Happy Friday!

RoxiticusDH April 11, 2008 10:13 AM

P.S. -- sorry for not being more enthusiastic about your cats, but I am deathly allergic.

Anonymous,  April 11, 2008 11:54 AM

Hey Marzie. Marvin must be one angry cat dat no one understands. Dat's why he's sooo vicious. ;)

I wonder what happen to him ... did u send him to Mars ? :D

Naz

Farah Deen April 11, 2008 12:58 PM

GP, I think I know where Pet Safari is- it's on the same level as Brand Outlet kan? LOL I used to go there for the kids branded-factory outlet price. Kalau tak salah, pet safari at the end tu kan?

ya la, it's cool to see those things they have for pets. Tapi, kitties ok lagi, jangan hamster! ya allah, i tell you, i will run my life off if I saw one terlepas! hanster/tikus sama je for me! LOL Once, I cried like a baby because my stupid cousin tricked me and put a hamster on my hands. really GP, takut maut I time tu!

Mariuca April 11, 2008 4:05 PM

Ha ha ha Nessa! Kesian Blackie la he he, he's just a bit active mah... and curious wan to follow me home! Some more, here I am happily naming him Blackie! Anyway, yesterday we went to the store, and Blackie has been sold oredi! Good luck to his new Master lolz.. ;)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 4:09 PM

Hola EC, it's great to see a BE member here, thanks so much for stopping by and for voting! I will definitely visit your beautiful blog more often! :):):)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 4:14 PM

Hi Roxy and yay for winnig ur last battle LOL! I was getting my Entrecard ready till almost 6 am this morning, but before I went to bed, I made sure to quickly drop by ur place and LJ's to drop off my card!! He he...

Oh thanks so much for the explanation. Again, LJ also told me a little bit abt Social Spark. I will register for the email updates, hopefully that will push them to send my invite sometime soon lol!

What a pity u're allergic to cats, but I totally understand your indifference towards them. Allergies can be terrible, I know cause I get sinus attacks once in a while and it really sucks! ;)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 4:19 PM

LOL!! I like the sound of that Naz, Marvin was terribly misunderstood poor kitty!

I had to give him away, cause by then my cat gave birth to a fresh batch, and I had 10 cats & kitties all running around in my room, it was a cat farm! And Marvin was chasing all of them out, so I had to give him away to a friend. This friend actually sent Marvin back to me after several days cause he also couldn't tahan Marvin ha ha .. finally I gave him to a friend's sister who was looking for a Persian and he's still staying with them! :):):)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 4:23 PM

Farah, almost there... it's at the end, but it's on the 2nd floor! Dekat dengan Popular Bookstore.

Aiyo!! I also geli dengan hamsters la dear! Same, to me it's just a tikus. I once had to catch my brother's hamster which terlepas keluar his cage, and nobody was home, so I had to do it all by myself! There I was, screaming away and closing my eyes, trying to pick up the little fella, geli!! Thank goodness my brother came home and he caught the hamster lol... :):):)

Jacques Pierre April 11, 2008 5:18 PM

Wow! Marvin is quite a character. Glad dat someone finally understand and accept him now. :D

Cat farm with 10 cats & kitties? Must be a handful to handle then. I salute you Cat Woman!! ;)

Have a Purr-fect weekend .. meoww!
Naz-ty Cat

Jean Chia April 11, 2008 5:45 PM

marzie, one of the reason i prefer dog to cat is because i am afraid of the kitty hissy sound when they gets angry. And the thought of them jumping on you with their sharp claws freak me out! the black cat looks so scary lar!

i need to see more of benji, chubbs & phoebe! they are what i called adorable pets! :)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 10:35 PM

LOL, yeah la kesian Marvin but I had no choice. He was chasing every single cat out of my house and I didn't want to lose the one that I brought back from US! So bye bye Marvin but I'm sure he's very happy now! Happy weekend Naz! :)

Mariuca April 11, 2008 10:40 PM

Hi Jean! Oh... but dogs barking more scary mah LOL! Okay okay, I will definitely have more adorable Phoebe, Chubbs and Benji pics here, wouldn't want to scare u away from cats now would I? Happy weekend Jean! :)

Mariuca April 13, 2008 6:07 PM

FloDawn April 15, 2008 3:27 PM
