Chocolate has a facial wound

Met the owner on my way back from cat-sitting. He said the cat has been fighting again.. how much is the powder? I said never mind I have some… He insisted I take $20.- Is it serious? I asked. No, no…not serious!

Passed by the mamak shop to check… looks quite bad! Chocolate is not the friendliest… he cannot be pilled! Gave him some wet food with antibiotics mixed in… and quickly dabbed some powder on the wound!

I’ll send him to SPCA!

Met Chocolate’s owner and he said that he is going to send Chocolate to SPCA because he is going on holiday for 2 months. When I told him that this will most likely be the end for Chocolate … he looked unbelieving and said “Killed ahh?… Then I give you food and you feed him for me”.

Chocolate has been abandoned

Heard that his owner has stopped feeding him and asked his customers at the Mamak Shop block *19 whether they want to take him. Poor Chocolate was so hungry and finished up 2 plate-fulls.

The E-collar had to be removed as the owner had stopped taking him home at night…

By the way, I just found out that this type of breed is actually called “Chocolate Burmese”.

6 teeth extracted

Nushi was wide awake when I picked her up.

She pawed at her mouth a bit but then settled down to rest. I would normally have caged her for a day or two but all the cages are occupied so she is now in her favourite hiding spot under the bed. A big thank you to E for sponsoring Nushi’s dental work!

So relieved that it is finally over and done…

Had a look at Choc on my way back. He looks good but there are still some scabs. Will probably take the collar off and remove the stitches in a few days time.

Snoopy is improving … able to get up more easily now. Hopefully she will make a full recover soon and can be released. But Snoopy is not complaining, contented being in her cage… a very sweet cat!

Choco had to be stitched again

The owner called saying that the stitches had come undone…

Brought Choc back to the vet to be stitched up again and also borrowed a big cage from M. Choc’s owner is willing to keep him at home in the cage until the wound has healed. I know that he actually is quite fond of Jumpok… he just dislikes spending money on him. Anyway, he did reimburse me almost the full amount for the second stitching… the vet had also kindly given a good discount.

So hopefully all goes well now…told owner to keep Choc in the carrier over night as he is still drowsy and not to give him any food or water until morning.

Chocolate injured

Received sms from M “Noticed a big bleeding wound at right stomach of Choc. Notified his Indian shop-keeper owner. Just hope she will do something.” M had also noticed that choc had been missing for about 5 days.

Sadly, I have reason to doubt that they would bother bringing Choc to the vet.

Went down with a carrier to lent them but made it clear that I would not be bringing him as they had refused to refund me when I had Chocolate treated for urinary blockage 2 years ago… and had also refused to change his diet.

The wife phoned the husband and after I made some noise he agreed to bring Choco (he calls him Jumpok) to the vet. Later the vet called to say that he did not even get to see the cat as the owner told the clinic staff that all he would be willing to pay was $50,- and to just give him some powder to apply… sigh!

I went back to the shop to collect my carrier and also gave Choco food mixed with antibiotics. I voiced my frustration and anger even in front of his customers… told him what is the point of going for pilgrimage (His family went last year) if he is not willing to provide the necessary veterinary treatment for his cat! Allah would surely see his actions! I also threatened to inform the SPCA…

Finally he asked me to bring the cat to the vet and that he would join me there in 10 mins (waiting for his wife to come down take over the shop). When I said I would rather wait for him… he gave me $60.-. Of course he didn’t turn up… the wife cooking…lah!

Decided to go ahead with the surgery to stitch up the wound. When I asked the owner wether he could take Choco home to let him recuperate, he said he could not, because he scratches the sofa… but maybe he would take him home at night.

I requested not to put E-collar on Choco as he will be out and may get hit by a car if he can’t see properly… or may get stuck somewhere. Just hope that he will be good and leave the stitches alone!

Going to collect him now…
