Boy Boy update

Dr. Robin Au did the shoulder repair and stabilized the joint as much as possible. He told us that the dislocation was due to cartilage degeneration resulting in joint laxity. Anna and I were actually relieved to hear that, because we suspected abuse and worried that the abuser could strike again. Boy Boy is just too trusting, an easy target…

A big Thank You from Boy Boy, Anna and myself to the generous sponsors who made it all possible!!!

Boy Boy will have to stay at my place for 2 to 3 month until the joint is strong enough. I have put him in the big cage, but no hammocks for him this time.

The Medical bill for Boy Boy’s operation came up to $610. – (excluding the $82,- Anna paid earlier for consultation, x-ray and medication at AMK clinic). We will have to bring Boy Boy back in 2 weeks for removal of stitches and also later for monthly reviews.

Boy Boy is quite comfortable now and eating well.

Cute-Cute missing

Little Cute-Cute aka Tien-Tien (Sweet-Sweet) has been missing for 6 days now. I have put up posters but no news so far…

She was last seen at blk *26 area 1 where she is loosely owned by some residents. Cute-Cute could always be seen near Harvest Moon, together with her friend, the big ginger cat Leo (Lau Huang).

Just hope that someone took her in and she is safe…

Update on Boy Boy

After talking to Dr. Au, who readily agreed to be paid in instalments, I managed to persuade Anna to go ahead with Boy Boy’s operation and trust that sponsors will come in to help with the medical expenses.

We picked up Boy Boy from the fosterer at 6pm, collected the x-ray and went to Dr. Au’s clinic.

It turned out that there was no fractured toe…. I must have heard wrongly over the phone. I guess the vet was talking about the splintered bone at the shoulder joint.

Dr Au explained that the socket needs to be smoothened before putting the joint back into place and that a blood test would have to be done before surgery. He estimated the cost of the operation to be around $400. -/ $500. – plus blood test $80.- and hospitalization charges.

So far I have already received $200. – from one sponsor and another also came forward to help with Boy Boy’s medical expenses. Thank you very much for your kindness and compassion for Boy Boy!

Boy Boy crying out in pain…

The shoulder of his left front leg is dislocated and a toe of the leg is broken. According to the vet, his injuries could have been caused by abuse or a car accident. Anna only told me yesterday after she brought Boy Boy to the vet. He received some medication and is now with a temporary fosterer. When I called the fosterer I could hear Boy Boy crying in pain. The vet At AMK estimates the cost of the operation would be $500.- to 1.000.-. but it would have to be done at another clinic as they don’t have the facilities, Dr. Robin Au was recommended.

The vet said that if Boy Boy was not operated he could still move around on 3 legs but the dislocated leg would be dragged on the ground and may develop ulcers and need to be amputated.

The problem is the cost. Anna simply says that she has no money and I myself am already struggling as it is…

If anyone would like to help with sponsorship towards the operation of Boy Boy, please email me…. any amount will help, thanks!

Here is my earlier post about Boy Boy: http://meowies.multiply.com/journal/item/21 He was released back to 852 area with approval from Town Council.

Mother cat and 3 kittens dumped…

…at the void deck of *28 area 1. I saw them yesterday night on my feeding round. They looked bewildered and didn’t eat much. The mother is all white and the kittens are white with grey tabby pattern and about 3 to 4 months old.

How I wish that these irresponsible owners could be brought to justice…. causing so much suffering to these cats and also endangering the whole colony of sterilized community cats.

Cat with paint on her fur

The moment I reached home with Orange Boy, my daughter told me that she saw one of the community cats with whitish paint all over her belly and paws at blk *22 area 1 (where upgrading work is in progress). This tipped-ear female is actually not one of those that I am feeding. She probably belongs to someone who let her roam about freely.

Luckily the cat let us bathe her without making much fuss and the paint came off quite easily…. wrapped her up in a towel and carried her downstairs to let the sun and wind dry her fur.
