Winning!

Tuesday night, I went to a Japanese meet up in London. It’s an event where people who are interested in Japanese culture & Japanese people in London meet up once a month.

So there was this Japanese guy, who has super attractive! I spotted him early in the night. Maybe an hour after getting there. However, at this meet up there are so many people it’s hard to stand still, let alone make conversation!

After attempting to make friends with other people, I saw two guys sitting at a table which can seat 8 people. I am exhasted because I’ve been awake since 5am! So I grab my friend and we sit. I turn to look at the people sitting on the table, it’s the cute guy!

So we start talking. I find out he studied some media communication course at uni, which is super similair to Journalism. Anyway, we are in a deep conversation, when we are suddenly interupted.

A girl comes up to him, only him, not his friend. ‘Hi, my friend wants to talk to you cause she thinks your cute! I’m Miss rude-ass & my friend is…’. So I am gob-smacked! How can you just come & interupt somebodies conversation?! Let alone a guy who is talking to a girl. I could have been his girlfriend for all she knew!

Anyway, he polietly but awkwardly introduced himself. But then, he turned his back on them!! =D I was so happy! Not only was I happy because he was more interested in me, but I was happy because he also thought that the way they approached him was rude!

If there is one thing I know about approaching guys, it is that you should look at the situation from a distance & wait for him to end his conversation if he is having one! Isn’t it common sense?!

Anyway, he wrote his number on a napkin for me! Which I think was cute because people don’t do that anymore! And the fact I didn’t ask for it makes it a win x2!

Wish me luck with this guy! I have super bad luck with guys I like so maybe this will work out!

Prepare for Kitty! Part 2

Please read Prepare for Kitty! Before this one!

Roari at 8 weeks!

The most important thing to do as soon as you get Kitty, is to take them to the vet. You can’t get he or she neutered or spayed until it is 5-6 months old but they need injections. Even if they are a home Kitty like Roari. So PLEASE!!! Take your Kitten to a vet!!! The price for injections are worth it because trust me, you don’t want a sick kitty. =[

(I will make a separate post on Neutering and Spaying at a later date)

So part two is going to go over things you should do with Kitty before it gets old.

I think the most important is to teach him or her its name!

The way I did this, was to say Roari’s name every time he looked at me, every time I gave him food, every time I stroked him, every time he came to sleep, every time possible! But make sure that you only call him or her by their name. No nicknames until they reply to their name!

Second important thing would be, for me, get them used to showering!

I know people say cats don’t like water, but if you wash your cat from when they are young they will get used to it. There is proof of this on YouTube. I wish that I could say Roari likes water, but I failed at this part when he was a baby!

Now, you have to be really careful. Please watch YouTube tutorials that actually show a cat! The temperature of the water must be Luke-warm. It has to be the temperature where you can’t say it’s cold or hot. Just feel water not a temperature! You also have to make sure that you never get water on the cats head or in their face. And please get Kitten shampoo for your vet or pet shop.

Also remember that Cats are naturally clean animals and they do not need to be washed as much as Dogs do. I’d say once every 6 months is fine. But I think it is also important to get a Kitten used to it so that if it gets really dirty it is not hard for you to wash it.

Third, when they climb on surfaces that you don’t want them to go on or on the curtain, they need to know this is wrong.

Now don’t shout at them or hit them. That doesn’t work with kids let alone animals that don’t know English! It took me a while and a lot of effort to get Roari to stop climbing on the curtains. But now he never does it.

What you must do is, as soon as they go onto the curtain/surface, pick them up gently, look at them, and say No. In a firm tone, but do NOT shout. When they realise that you always take them off the curtain/surface, they will hesitate a little bit before climbing up, when they get to this stage, simply say No. before they actually climb on to the curtain/surface. If you do this every time, they will get the message!

Many websites I have read suggest spraying your kitten with water. I disagree, I think that is horrible. Would you like it if someone sprayed water in your face?! They don’t understand that what they are doing is wrong. The one time my sister did this, Roari didn’t even care! He loves water! (But not showers -_-)

There are alternatives. Spraying the curtain with a spray you can get from pet shops that apparently stops your cat/dog from going to that surface that has been sprayed, but it stinks!! I got it when we first got Roari, and he hated it at first, but so did we. The smell was horrid and once it faded he was on the curtains again anyway!

You can also try a citrus air freshener or surface cleaner. This works better than that horrid spray!

Please, play with your kitty! When they are young they are the cutest!! And in a couple of months they will turn their tiny nose up at a toy and sleep for 20 hours a day! So enjoy it while it lasts!

Part 3 will be about Neutering and Spaying your cat. This will be up at a later date.

Prepare for Kitty!

For those of you who don’t know, I have a big fluff-ball of a cat called Roari! I got him when he was 8 weeks old and he was so small that he could sit in one of my hands! (and I have small hands!)

My friend (one of my closest) got a Kitten today and my gosh she is cute!!!

But anyway, I thought I would make a blog post on what things to buy and what to do when you get a Kitten! Why you ask? Because I wish somebody had written a blog post for me when I first got Roari! I was a wreck in the first month of being a new Mummy!

So first, What to buy:

A cage (to take it to the vets in);
A bed;
A Blanket;
A Litter Tray;
Food (Kitten food);
Dish/Bowl;
Litter;
Scratching Post;
Toy;
Brush/comb.

When I got Roari, I was lucky enough to have found an offer. In this offer I got the cage, litter tray, bed and scratching post in one. I got it for about £15.00 from Argos. I dunno if they still do this offer but it was so handy!

I then went to the supermarket and got a massive bag of dry kitten food. I started Roari off on Whiskers, because that is what his previous owners were feeding him. It’s important to ask the people who you got the kitten from about what they were feeding the kitten. I didn’t give Roari wet food until he was bout 5 months because I wanted him to get strong teeth (although they were already freaking sharp!). Oh and please make sure it is Kitten food because they need more nutrients than what is in the regular cat food.

I also bought a massive bag of Litter at the super market. And two bowls, one for water, one for food. I also made sure that I bought him a little ‘welcome to your new home’ toy.

I also bought Roari several brushes/combs. You will only need one if you don’t make the same mistake that I did! I didn’t want to brush Roari when he was a baby because he was so cute with his static fur!! But it is important that you start when they are young. I would say around 3 months old. Otherwise they will not get used to it!

So that is the basics. You then need:

Double sided tape

I know you are thinking what the hell?!

When Roari was tiny, he liked to chew wires. I would rap the wires in double sided tape. He hated this and learnt very fast that the wires were not something to play with! They will stay clear of anything with tape on it!

I think, this is all the materialistic things that you need.

This post is a bit long so I’m going to start a second one on things to do with your kitten to take care of them and your house!

Stay Tuned!!

Such a cute outfit!

I love this outfit. It’s a perfect match to my personality. Girly-Punk. The floral dress adds brightness to the outfit and is a great introduction to Spring!

The boots are amazing! I love that the studs are only on the platform and heel part of the shoe and not all over. It just adds that tiny bit of detail on what would be a very plain wedged ankle boot.

The leather jacket is great with the dress as it isn’t warm enough to wear the dress alone. Instead of a cardigan, the leather jacket is more edgy! And since it is a plain jacket, you can easily customise it with studs (to match the shoes), a cute flower to add colour or your favourite brooch.

The pink bracelet brings in colour to match the dress and the other bracelet and the necklace are just cute!

Let me know what you guys think about this outfit! And if you think I should put more outfits together, let me know by liking this post!
