New Novena Kitten

Will bring her for sterilisation on Monday… sponsored by Tuna’s guardian who feeds the Novena cats. I need my last voucher for Muddy’s girlfriend… but this little ginger girl looks already 6 months old… so cannot wait. Lucky she is tame and not heavy because I can’t carry heavy cats and traps anymore’… and it’s a long way to the bus stop.

Hope she is safe… because she likes to stay at the church grounds. Hope they don’t start trapping again!

New female

Sadie

Tipped and tattooed

Had been looking for this newly abandoned female for the past few days… the feeder also had not seen her.

Today she found her and brought her right up to my doorstep. I was worried the cat would be frightened and escape from her arms… but all went well.

Chomping grass

This guy had me worried because he still kept vomiting undigested food even after producing 2 hairballs!

Kept a close eye on him… offered grass and also syringed water and cranberry extract as he seemed to drink little. I have stopped giving him his daily raw steak and slowly changed his dry-food from F brand to Avo. He still eats the Fussy Cat can food. No more vomiting for the past few days.

Copper

Copper was given steroid and antibiotic injections to help the mouth ulcers heal and is also on a course of clavulox.

She ate some Liver Feast on her own today and Tommy is also eating more of the dry food.

Copper not eating

Went to Area 2 last week to check on a complaint of cats going up to the second floor. Offered to put up mesh at her gate which will be done this weekend. Saw Copper and was shocked that she had lost so much weight. She came running and meowing for food… then took one bite screamed and went into the drain. When I went down again with some Fancy Feast the same thing happened. Met the feeder Ah Gek who offered her rice porridge with fish. Later she told me that the cat had not eaten anything for 3 days.

I suspect FIV… will bring Copper to the vet tomorrow. Syringed her one can of Liver Chicken Feast and water… she had no problem swallowing it.

Good and cheap

This is one of my improved litter trays. The cloth pegs are there to create a gap. The newspaper works well. Ideally it should be torn into thinner stripes… I was just too lazy. Some pine pellets can be added.

Tommy looks slightly jaundiced

He took 1/4 cup of Avoderm (syringed)… will try to give him the Hepavite liver-support later. So far no vomiting.

And another kitten…

There is also a kitten with this group of cats. This orange-white kitten seems slightly younger than the other three.

Newton Kittens

The kittens are about 3 to 4 months old and very shy. All 3 are tabby-white.

Can’t find anyone willing to trap the Newton Cats for sterilization… and I do agree that it will be difficult as they are not always around. I will feed them for the next two weeks and keep a lookout for feeders but I simply don’t have the energy to do the trapping myself…

Newton Cats

The 3 Newton Cats are still there and still no tipped ears! There are feeders but no one sterilizes. Had tried to get Damy to trap them but he went there 2 or 3 times and did not see any cat… so gave up.

Saw the 2 new ones abaut 50 m away next to the main road just opposite Newton Hawker Centre. There was some food remains and water near the fence but they were really hungry.

Tommy unwell and lost weight

Tommy has been unwell for some time… he has poor appetite and lost weight. No external injuries could be seen. Was he kicked like his brother Tummy? The only food he still takes is Fancy Feast dry food but yesterday he even refused that… then offered Chicken Liver Feast but he took just two bites. Syringed some Nutri-Gel.

Today he ate about a spoonful of FF kibbles.

Oki is limping (front leg). Noticed this morning and have no Idea what happened… he was in my bedroom… maybe he fell? None of the cats ever fought with Ike or Oki.

Hairball

Have been giving him the hairball paste for 5 days but still no results. He is still playing and eating but of course has less appetite now.

Just what I needed…

Found what I had been looking for…2 more big jars for making enzymes! Feels like such a waste to throw away orange peels and such just because I don’t have enough large containers.

Flying to the Philippines next week

Going Home

http://meowies.multiply.com/journal/item/1467/Another_New_Abandonee_in_Area_1

He appeared about half a year ago and was already tipped… so I actually never named him. Met him today as he came back from the vet… vaccinated, certified and all ready to migrate 🙂 His new guardian told me that the vet estimated him to be about 9 years old.

I had heard that a lady from the Philippines had adopted one of the community cats but didn’t know which one it was…

Rain at the Vet’s

A not so white Persian…

…. after 4 days in the car park. Black oil stains all over his back.

Rain

It’s an unsterilized male. His teeth look good so I think he should be quite young. He is a big cat, look at those big paws… but not much flesh under all that fur…. he felt very light when I picked him up.

Latest Abandonee

A beautiful White Persian… but this is how he looks after 3 days at the car park! He had a newish looking collar with bell… which I took off. Very tame and trusting… so sad!
