Rest in Peace
Received Dr Bryan’s call while on the way to the clinic. He doubts that Manja will make it… said that he is breathing heavily. The blood tests didn’t show anything. Manja’s tail still responded but his eyes didn’t…
Cali is doing better… she ate some Liver-Chicken Feast.
Brought Stoney to the vet… no mites, no fungal infection. Actually the Watermelon juice may have worked. Dr. Bryan commented that the wound is dry and the colour has changed… which means there is granulating tissue. Stoney will have to wear the E-collar for two weeks and also taking antibiotics.
Cali has flu but the good news is that she has started eating. Will probably take her home on Monday.
Manja had vomited several time, either right after feeding, drinking water, or a few hours later… no choice but to hospitalize to give him a chance. He looks weak, pale gums, dehydrated. Manja was put on drip and the vet will do blood test on Monday if he is not improving. Manja had passed 2 or 3 small lumps of hard poo but the vet still felt some lumps and gave him an enema.
Mary came with 9 large containers of chicken, she had made an extra portion of chicken for Cali. The 8 cats from the closing-down shelter are getting better… but still look very thin. Gave some of the soup to Manja… then had to rush off.
Cali has been warded and on drip. She sneezed several times at the vet’s.
I took Manja home. He had an injection and will be on antibiotics for a week. He drank water after return from vet visit and immediatedly vomitted a large amount of liquid. Syringe-fed him a while later and it stayed in so far….
According to the feeders both cats have not been eating for about a week… and Sylvia told me only yesterday. They look very thin and are also dehydrated.
Sylvia couldn’t find Manja (Area 3) but he came to me when I shook my bunch of keys… surprised he still remembers me after all this time.
I had seen Cali (Area 2) only a few times… she was abandoned (already tipped) about a year ago. She looks half the size now… Ah Gek led me up to the 3rd floor corridor but then could not find her… I walked to the other end of the corridor and picked her up.
Managed to syringe Manja 1/4 cup of diluted Avoderm… but could not do so with Cali… as she growled and hissed.
Will bring both to the vet tomorrow.
Manja’s wound looks much better now. Hope that Az and Sylvia can find the attacker and will manage to chase him away before Manja is released back. They have seen a new cat there…
Stitches is terrified of the grey -and-white male at *14 area 3 and will stay away from that place. Nowadays I find him at blk *11/*10. He must have been in another fight as his cheek wound was bleeding again.
Sophia is becoming less shy and has started walking around in the open space. Sylvia and myself always give her a treat of a can of Fancy Feast, which she likes very much. Hope she will put on some weight soon…
Last seen by Sylvia more than a week ago at about 11pm. He seemed not well… walked very slowly. We searched for him and put up posters. Az said she would pray that Manja be given back to us.
Yesterday received a call from Az that she had found Manja at blk *50, which is quite some distance away. She brought him back to *32 area 3.
I reached there only at 1am and couldn’t find him. Sylvia went looking for him at *52 while I fed Fern, Sue and Fighter. Then suddenly Manja appeared…
I noticed a wound at the neck that looked quite bad…. not a fresh wound, partly closed but with some pus…and also two small puncture wounds near his ears that have already healed. He must have been in a fight…maybe the same cat had chased him away the first time?
I brought Manja home to let him rest and recover, washing the wound several times a day and applying cream.
Sylvia just called that they found Manja as he was walking towards Billy Boy’s area. He looked ok but thinner. Poor Manja, must have been so hungry those 5 days… Half an hour earlier Sylvia told me that some children saw Manja run away very frightened by the 7th month activities on the day he disappeared. Az had also seen him on that morning and he seemed very scared.
What a nice surprise! Who says midnight calls are always bad news 😉
Manja from Blk *32 Area 3 has been lost for 3 days now. Went to put up some posters today and also cycled around the neighbourhood. Still hoping Sylvia will call to tell me that he is back. Az is also helping to look for him.
