Pebbles is gone…

Rest in Peace dear Pebbles!

Saw Pebbles yesterday morning and felt that she was weak… The vet called in the late afternoon but by the time I reached the clinic she was already gone.

They had given her oxygen… but then her heart stopped. There must have been more internal injuries.

Penny helped to bury her at midnight… near Old Ginger’s resting place.

Pebbles is better… there is hope

Pebbles’ face still looks terrible and the vet said that her jaw is loose which probably means fractured, but she is alert and can walk. she kept purring and kneeding and wanting to be stroked.

Pebbles badly injured

Maxiejane found the injured Pebbles and brought her to the vet. At first I thought it was Benny and even when I saw her at the clinic it took me a while to realize that it was actually Pebbles.

The vet said that her temperature was very low and he doesn’t think that she will make it. Pebbles was given a hot-water bottle and put on drip (receiving pain medication)… The vet called at 8pm to say that the drip was set up and her temperature went up a little.

Will see Pebbles in the morning when the clinic opens…

Pebbles

Sandy, Pebbles and one of the very few unsterilised cats in the area. Since Pebbles was returned she has become the ‘top cat’ chasing Sandy… previously it was the other way round.

Pebbles has cancer

I took her home… will try to make her comfortable… but according to the vet she still needs to be on drip for a while. The vet prescribed a course of antibiotics (metro)… and some appetite stimulant.

Biopsy and operation would be very costly and just buy some time…and I won’t put her through chemo therapy. The big fat bill was almost $600.- (blood test, ultrasound, catheter, etc…) and one day hospitalized.

I always looked forward to feeding her… she would meet me at the other end of the block (often together with Sandy)… wait for me to finish feeding the cats there and then we would ‘race’ back to her end… the two of them running next to my bicycle… then she would roll about for a while, wanting to be stroked, before eating her food.

Pebbles is ill

Pebbles walked slowly towards me and then plopped down and didn’t move. I brought her home… she vomited liquid and kept trying to pee and poo.

Brought her to the vet in the morning. Pebbles had high fever and was also dehydrated. She was given injections but so far no improvement…more dehydrated… refuses water. She will probably have to be hospitalized tomorrow…

Raining Cats and Dogs

It has been raining almost non-stop for the past few days. As I was going to feed the cats yesterday night, neighbours told me about 3 large dogs. Shortly after, I saw some policemen and then the dogs. Two of the dogs were big while the third one was HUGE! Reminded me of a calf, but bigger…I have never seen a dog this tall. Anyway, I was worried about my cats who would be waiting for their food. True enough, the huge dog went after one of the cats, but he gave up the chase as the cat hid under a car. The dogs were not afraid of humans, so the policemen just kept following them and calling for back up. I am quite sure they managed to capture them, as the dogs seemed to be friendly.

When I was finally ready to go on my feeding round, it started to rain again, quickly escalating into a heavy downpour. I gave up halfway as the cats would either not be there or come running through the rain and get all wet. My poor Pebbles, who has been coughing for a few days, rushed out into the rain when she heard me. Then she sat there meowing and looking confused before hiding under a car.

I brought Nushi to the vet today, probably a urinary infection. She will have to take antibiotics for 8 days, and I am adding a little Vitamin C to her food. Later I went to pick up Pebbles. She is now happily snuggled up in a soft towel in the cage. I also started her on antibiotics and give her Nutri-plus as she is not eating.
