Manja’a final vet bill

Many thanks to the kindhearted people who sponsored part of Manja’s medical expenses! They are Crystal, E, AB and Crystal’s colleagues. the total sponsored amount so far is $2.250,-

And not forgetting to thank LK, who had borrowed $500.- from a friend when the $4.000,- deposit was required. Manja was very lucky that Crystal found her and that LK happened to pass by… and that her owner was willing to do all he can to have her treated.

As Crystal says, if one of us was missing the deposit could not have been payed…

Appeal for Manja who fell from 7th storey

We managed to find the owner and they showed their love and concern for their cat… and also agreed to mesh all their windows. They have settled the bill at AMK and payed $800,- down payment at Mt Pleasant Hospital… where the surgery will be done by Dr. Dennis Choi. The problem is that they can’t really afford the estimated $6.000,- payment for Manja’s surgery.

The sum of $4.000,- needs to be payed before they start on the surgery… which would be in 2 or 3 days time… when she has more stabilized… there is also injury to the lungs.

In order to save the cat’s life Crystal (who found the injured cat) LK and myself have agreed to give $1.000,- each, although it’s hard on LK and myself. One of my own needs to go for surgery soon… My friend AB is also contributing $300.- .

I hope that more people will find it in their heart to help Manja. She is very sweet and only 6 months old. Manja is now at Mt Pleasant Whitley Road registered under Manje, owner Azman.

Manja has 2 broken legs… one with the bone sticking out and her hip is also broken. They were unable to do this kind of surgery at AMK.

Injured cat in the letter box

Sms from cleaning supervisor: Please come to blk *26 a cat run in the letter box body with blood.

I called M… and luckily she was just downstairs! So we went together.. not sure what to expect. First we saw the pool of blood behind the letter box then the Persian cat who had jumped into one of the boxes when the postman had opened the back. I quickly went to get my carrier while M watched the cat. M then used some paper to push the cat from the other side of the letter box to make her walk into the carrier.

Brought her to the nearby vet who suspected a fall. He also said that probably one of her front legs and one of her back legs are fractured. Luckily the jaw was not broken. The vet also scanned her and found a microchip. The blood was from the mouth/nose. Brought her home for observation and to decide on the further treatment. She looked alert and could even walk.

Put up notices and then decided to check on the units right above the letter boxes. I found the owner on the 5th floor. Yes, one of their 2 cats was missing… they described the collar and bell correctly but didn’t know that she had a microchip. They said they would bring her for x-ray and necessary treatment. I think both cats are not sterilized… sigh! The other cat is the daughter of the one that fell.

This is the sad part of being a cat-sitter… all I can do is advise and make sure windows are closed while I am there.
