Someone is torturing and killing cats in Dasmarinas Village

Cat Serial Killer Dasma 2

Arguably there are bigger, more urgent problems than the death and disappearance of fourteen cats in an upmarket gated community in Makati, but the fact that anyone thinks they can get away with torturing small animals is cause for alarm. Animal cruelty is a gateway crime. In the greater scheme of things, people are small animals.

It is impossible to keep secrets in this town, especially in a community where everyone knows each other. Start talking.

Update. We’re never going to abandon this blog. We report a cat serial killer and immediately readers name-check Murakami.

From decades of watching serial killer movies, we can try to profile the perp. From the syntax of the written note, we think it’s someone educated in the British school system. “Our village is no cat sanctuary.” People educated the American way, such as Pinoys, would write, “Our village is not a cat sanctuary.” Your thoughts?

It is useless to resist them.

Chris Hemsworth, the sea, and a bunch of cats

"The Man Who Dreams Only of Surfing" starring Chris Hemsworth from Bruce Weber on Vimeo.

Thanks to Juan for the alert. After this last weekend, we have decided to hole up in the house until the holiday madness passes. This will make us stir-crazy, so everyday we will walk to the mall and back. Walking is good for thinking, and we do need to eat and do chores. But we will not waste another hour sitting in traffic, unless we’re in a car with our favorite interesting people. And beverages.

No Bruce, ignore the primate, look here.
Get out of the shot, human, this is my close-up.
Let me go! Let me go!
Finally he’s gone. Lunch break!

Today’s reason for leaving the house: to watch In the Heart of the Sea. It’s supposed to be about the actual event that inspired Moby Dick, so we expect sober Melville.

Update: Skip the movie and watch Monty Python’s lifeboat sketch instead. The screenplay is dull, the direction is unimaginative, and while Chris Hemsworth can do larger-than-life, we suspect he can’t do life-size.

Belgians respond to terror raids with cats

November 25, 2015 By: jessicazafra Category: Cats, Current Events, Places No Comments →


When, on Sunday evening, Belgian police asked citizens not to tweet about the armed operations that were being carried out around the country, anyone could have been excused for reacting with fear.

Belgian forces – searching for suspects in the aftermath of the Paris attacks – told citizens to stay indoors and not go near their windows for safety reasons.

They also appealed for social media silence about any police action users might witness – presumably to keep the suspects in the dark.

A tense time, no doubt. But Belgium reacted – how else? – with cats.

Confirmation that Drogon is a royal cat, as if we weren’t sure.

Kneel before us!

How did he wind up on our doorstep (and we live on the second floor)? He could’ve jumped out of a moving vehicle (like Mat) or jumped over the wall of the posh ghetto not far from where we live.
