Kitten fell from 6th floor

The seven-month-old kitten was rescued by Penny and had been adopted by a family staying near her place. They meshed their front gate but DIDN’T MESH THEIR WINDOWS.

Penny called at 8.30am as she didn’t know what to do. She said the kitten’s paws felt cold and as she was also supposed to bring another cat with kidney failure for x-rays to Mt. Pleasant (Springside) this morning, she decided to bring both cats there.

The kitten has a fractured jaw and was hospitalized. According to Penny the family refused to pay any part of the vet fees and suggested to let the kitten die. Later on they said they would pay half of the medical expenses…

Penny will not return the kitten to them unless they wire-mesh all their windows.

Jasper (now called Orange) suffered a broken pelvis and collapsed lung. Still, he is lucky to be alive! The windows were meshed but seems there was an opening at the top…

Get well soon, Orange!

Genie in the hammock



Found Genie in the hammock yesterday…no idea how she went up. We had not removed the 2 hammocks because we were so sure that she wouldn’t be able to climb up.

Later I placed the box there to help her climb down.Genie went up and down several times and also changed from one hammock to the other… although she still can’t walk properly (crawling with body touching the ground). I think this is good exercise to get back her strength.

Genie went home with Maxiejane this afternoon. She is now in a slightly smaller cage but also with hammock. Genie will be transferred to a big double-storey cage, once she is stronger…

Genie discharged today

Genie was no longer on drip so I thought might as well nurse her at home where she will be more comfortable. The only medication that she is taking now is antibiotics. We will bring her back for review on Friday and then decide regarding the acupuncture treatment. Dr. Oh thinks that he can help her and also do something for the liver.

Genie still needs to be syringe fed. No special diet required so I give her Avoderm. Maxiejane will make fish and chicken soup for her. She cannot get up but manages to turn herself from one side to the other. We also noticed that she curls the right her hind paw when stretching her left leg. Ranztan suggested giving her B complex and I am thinking that adding a little

liver would be good for her as she is also anemic…

Update on Genie

Photo by maxiejane

More bad news… her right side is paralyzed.

Maxiejane visited Genie in the afternoon and I went in the evening. If I understood correctly, she had another visitor in the morning.

The hospital bill so far is $ 400 plus…. If anyone would like to sponsor part of Genie’s medical expenses, please send a cheque directly to Mt. Pleasant Animal Hospital 232 Whitley Road S-297824.

The vet says that she won’t fully recover and since nothing much can be done for her at the hospital we will probably take her home after the weekend. I will ask Dr. Oh if acupuncture could help her…
