Well, Iza is a different breed, tends to get fatter while Ayla is slimmer, with a narrow head,  a siamese cat?

Wow!  Have I been over-explaining about Iza and Ayla here or have you been visiting my blog?  Or do you just know about Tonkinese cats?  Any is OK, and I do love new visitors to my blog.

Well, thank you for visiting and liking my cat blog.  Did you also follow the link to my personal blog (not required in any way, just curious)?  Not many people know about Tonkinese cats .  Iza is a Tonkinese and indeed, pretty "hefty".  She follows me around constantly.  Talks like a Siamese but way bigger.  Where did you you learn about cats?

Only followed the cat blog, I missed the link to yours but shall explore later.
I learned about cats & dogs from personal experience, I do like them.
I have been around a long time and visited a few countries.
So I came across quite a few in my time.

I never kept pets as I was moving around a lot, besides in cities is difficult to have pets.

This is Solo, not my dog, but I am walking him every morning for an old lady (95) who is housebound.

Thank you.

Shame about my intolerable political views. Can't help it. :0)

Homegrown vegetables, herbs, salads & potatoes on a first-floor balcony (the year 2009)
Installed a self-watering system on a timer.
The green tomatoes made a few jars of chutney.

also those peppers look so nice.

The bamboo fencing or cover, I've noticed a neighbor with something similar for their garden, seems to becoming popular,

Outstanding garden, PR!  My spinach didn't grow worth a darn this year.  I thought they would like the sifted compost. but I probably should have mixed it in before planting.  Fixing that with new plantings soon.

I love spinach. But I buy them frozen. Cheaper and less work.
In fact, most of the vegetables I buy are frozen. Microwaved, the lazy option.

I like most of my veggies raw or (as a Chinese chef once told me) "cooked just til crisp".  You can't do that with frozen ones.  It may be a reaction to my Mom's cooking.  She never met a veggie that couldn't be boiled into submission...  When I went off to college and discovered lightly steamed veggies, it was the 2nd best day of my life!

My mother's mother taught her that any veggie should be "mushable" with sauce!  When they visited me, Dad always asked for crisp stir-fries. 

Happy walking...
