Old photo of Clover
Clover was sterilized 5 years ago. He and his friend another community cat (White with black patches) have been missing since Saturday. TC officer denied that they have been rounded up but of course we suspect… just as we strongly suspect that Floppy Ear and Lau Hei were removed by cleaners/ pest control. Lau Hei was found in in the eastern part of the island but Floppy was never found…
Just about a few weeks ago CWS contacted me that someone saw an injured cat at Blk 850. But this is probably a coincidence…
I informed CWS that this was Clover and that he was fine. I also called SPCA to inform them about Clover and that he is coping well with his old injury.
Please everyone look out for Clover… easily recognizable by his deformed left front leg!
Have not seen Silver since Thursday. She is pretty and friendly…could someone have taken her home?
Anna’s Clover (the cat with the broken front leg) has been missing from area 3 blk *52 for more than 2 weeks. Yesterday Sylvia found him just a few blocks away, he was hungry but otherwise he seemed alright.
I noticed that Boy Boy is walking with a slight limp. Will get the joint support formula for him…maybe Anna had stopped giving it to him.
Clover has returned after 4 days. I find it a little strange that several cats of that area keep moving from one place to another, or disappear for a few days. Garfield who had moved from *78 to the nearby condo, suddenly appeared at *32 Area 3 yesterday night. Then there was Sylvester who was lost for several days and then found, looking very frightened several blocks away. He has returned on his own – to his best buddy Billy Boy.
Anna called that she had not seen Clover (the cat with the broken leg) for the past 3 days. He did not show up at AVA or SPC. Will put up some posters later…
Shasha was sterilised at AMK and everything went well. Her ear was not tipped because we are keeping her as an indoor cat.
Little Garfield was successfully trapped and also sterilised at AMK, using a SPCA voucher for her.
4 more cats were scheduled to be sterilised under CWS on Nov. 18. I followed the Pet Taxi to the clinic at Serangoon and had the opportunity to be present during the operations. Quite scary….the part where I had to take the cats out of their carriers and hold them down for the injections.
One of the 4 male cats is Clover. He has a broken leg. It’s an old injury, one front paw is bent back. The good news is that Clover doesn’t need to have his leg amputated. The vet said the tissue looks healthy and that in time a thick layer of skin will form for protection. He has been done and is doing well but needs a 10 day course of antibiotics and cream for his leg. Poor Clover has to stay in the pet carrier for the time being as I have run out of cages and he is the smallest of the cats. I am trying to get another second-hand cage and Anna offered to pay for it as Clover is “her cat”. I will probably have to keep him for at least 2 weeks.
The giant ginger cat “Leo” was also done and put on antibiotics. He is really huge and muscular and has very big cheeks. The Vet suspects swollen glands due to some infection or disease. His nose started bleeding during the operation but it stopped after a while and he recovered well. Leo is an older cat.
The Burmese named Chocolate was the only one without problems, but he was also the fiercest. I released him at 1 am as I had only a small pet carrier left for him and he was not happy, refusing to eat. Checked on him yesterday night and he is doing fine and eating well.
The Siamese “Shadow” is a big cat and a big headache for me. He could not be done as he had quite a bad wound at his armpit. I have no problem giving him the antibiotics mixed with food but I can’t manage to clean the wound and apply the antibiotic powder. He bites and scratches without warning. Purring one moment and then snapping at my hand. Really don’t know what to do. He also sneezes, hope he is not coming down with cat flu… Tried again today, a quick splash, dab and powder… but the aiming was a little off. Will try again tomorrow…
Crystal will be next. I have made an appointment for 2nd Dec. She is probably pregnant and will need to have an abortion.
Right now I have 9 cats in the house and may have to take in Little Garfield on Monday, so that she can rest a little longer… I prefer to keep the females in for 6 to 7 days after sterilisation.
