Cat has great impact in history of art

My current work deals a lot with Continuous learning journey for adult particularly in art, ensuring the philosophical narrative  of the exhibition accessible to general public. It’s been a great pleasure to read through the curator’s thematic thesis and researching about the artists presented in the exhibition that I realised Cat has great impact in the history of Art!

Artist like Tsuguharu Foujita from early 20s who love to paint his model with cat.

Art book such as “The Book of the Cat” dated in 1903, by Mabel Humphrey and Elizabeth Fearne Bonsall, illustrated by Elizabeth Fearne Bonsall documented the earlier century cat in Arts, it’s interesting to see the subject matter focus more on cat. I was lucky to find the online copy of the book to read, it’s also a great book to share with the young ones, to appreciate cats. click here to read the book online. and also, link to rare books and special collections of children’s literature

Wobbly journey: not so Wobbly


He’s been quite active lately – dashing around the house, snapping at gecko (tat eeks me alot) and exploring the house. He will do kangaroo hop when he can’t walk backwards, occasionally will fall from the bed side when he stick himself too near to the brim. Wobbly just making my daily life more exciting hahahaha. This dude is litter trained and he knows where to find a good spot to sleep that is my bed! Totally a home boy – he must be feeling super low when he’s dumped at the void deck area.





Wobbly found me


Just a week ago, when I was  feeding Whitestar, this tiny cat, wobbly knock behind my back with a weakened meow.  “Woooo, where is this little fellow came from”. Whitestar has been quite a territorial kind of feline so it is impossible for other cats to be around his area, especially those small and weaker one.

He’s been walking slowly, wiggle left and right, struggles to walk in a straight and slam himself on the ground just to catch his breathe. My heart drops when I see him walking wobbly, what happen to him, oh dear, what if he get into fight with Whitestar? HE CAN’T SURVIVE HIMSELF JUST OUTSIDE THIS NEIGHBOURHOOD. he has been in my thoughts for few days….

Couple of days later, spotted him sleeping underneath a bin, I brought my camera along, just to record his walking situation and posted online for help… Ended up, I get more “opinions” than help, dishearten and was not sure what to do. As everything progressing so fast, managed to get help through Cat Welfare Society (Thanks Felicia and Cat welfare Society), Felicia a volunteer trapper contacted me and help to trap wobbly, and brought him to vet, who specialised in acupuncture and professional experience with animals that are paralysed. The consultation was diagnosed that Wobbly might be falling from great height and hurt his lower back, was given with couple of medicine and injection and that’s it. I told myself that I can’t just leave him back to the neighbourhood and decided to bring him home to give him some food and a place to sleep in peace…

This wobbly little fellow found me, he is giving me a sense of home, where I will look forward to going home as I knew someone waiting for me, He found me and a place in my heart.

In conversation with wawa

Finally, I get a chance to record this down, my many conversation with wawa, the cat who don’t meow, just a simple wa…erwaaa….wa wa.

He is always there whenever I shake the dry bowl container, he will wiggle out from the car lot and come to have a chat with me. He’s not eating today, I guess he’s full from morning feeding rounds.

this chap love his butt scratch
