Vincent eats too!

When Rosie fell ill, actually Vincent had also skipped some meals. I was worried his stomatitis was coming back…

We had been dutifully giving him his Plague Off on a daily basis for months now and lately, I thought perhaps we could give it on alternate days. Looks like that might have been a bad idea…

So, we quickly went back to a daily dose of the Plague Off.


And this morning, he ate A LOT!

Thanks also to the can of Recovery (which I’m told, is absolutely delicious) from Connie (which was meant for Rosie) – Vincent loved it! He ate three helpings and asked for more.

Mr Zurik is hoping he would get some too.



Rosie has gone a-wandering, as she also did yesterday (had to let her out to urinate and pass motion). She came back on her own after about 2-3 hours (yesterday). Rosie is Ms Ronda. If she cannot wander, she would be downright miserable.


Meanwhile also, I think Daffodil is beginning to recognise Rosie again.

Let’s hope so….


Rosie asks for food!!!! (Day 6, morning)

Last night Rosie slept in between our pillows again. She still had no appetite and had to be force-fed.

But this morning, upon waking, she came down the kitchen and asked for food!!

I offered her home-cooked, but she didn’t want it. She looked at the kibble container, so I quickly poured out some kibble for her….


She ate!! She ate!! All by herself.


That’s Heidi with her.

Then, Rosie rubbed on the Monge box.

How smart are they, right?


At your service, madam….at your service!


And she ate Monge as well!!!

She didn’t want ID anymore. Guess that’s considered “hospital food”?

I gave her her meds and supplements for the day and let her out. She didn’t want to use the litter box anymore (no urine at all). I guess she wants to do it outside.

So Rosie went to the playground, to her usual spot and sat under the big tree.

Back to normal….we hope!

We hope Rosie will continue to recover.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind wishes, the distant-Reiki and your moral support!

Rosie’s ALT reading has come down…a bit (Day 5)

The best news of the day is that Rosie’s ALT (liver) reading has come down from 641 (on Friday) to 409 (taken on Monday, after 4 days). Although the vet hoped it could have gone down further, but this decrease is significant and is good.

The reading would have to come down further in perhaps, another 5 days or so. The normal reading is 80. We have quite a long way to go….

Another liver reading also came down. However, one of the gall bladder readings went up, though not significantly so.

The plan is to continue with the current medication and supplements and hope for more improvement.

Last night, we let Rosie go free in the house (but closed all the windows). She came up and slept with us on the bed, in between our pillows – that’s where she or Daffodil usually sleep.

This morning, I found stools in the litter box, so I really hope it’s hers. That means the Lactulose worked!

My husband also let her out for awhile this morning, and he saw her passing motion on the grass, so that’s all good. She had been constipated since Friday.


I was at work all morning and Jia-Wen said she made a racket all morning, complaining about being in the cage. By afternoon, she was all tired out (of complaining), so she slept.

I am still force-feeding her the ID (plus some Recovery as a treat). Perhaps this is because I have divided it into 4 smaller meals (even ordinarily, Rosie eats in small amounts, but frequently), so maybe she is not hungry enough to want to eat by herself.

But she sure has lots of energy to complain!


I closed up the house and let her out inside the house by evening.


Heidi sure doesn’t mind the cage (but atop it, of course).


Rosie tried to escape through the windows, but failed, so she decided to go upstairs and sleep outside Ming-Yi’s room.

One day at a time…we hope Rosie will recover completely in time.

Thank you very much for all your kind prayers!

Hello Dr Chan,

I would like to apply subsidy for Sammy , a cat which I rescued in front of a restaurant when he was a kitten.

I found him in the state manner when he was about 1 mth going 2 with a really bad flu and eyes discharge. I have taken care of his medical fees for that and now that he is old enough , he goes to neutering.
Sammy have been released around my home area where he mingles with other cats. Thank you !

Attached is his picture

Insufficient stamps…again! Put 80 sen stamps, please!!!


We have told applicants repeatedly that 60 sen stamps is insufficient, especially if you unknowingly exceed the weight, use coloured envelopes or non-standard sized envelopes, but time and time again, applicants insist on putting only 60 sen stamps.

Save 20 sen? But at the end of the day, you don’t get the RM60 aid.  Please….

This application’s receipt is dated 4th Feb 2017, but posted on 15th Feb 2017. It only arrived yesterday (20th Feb 2017), which means, it is already late.

We do not pay any aid for late applications and applications with insufficient stamps. Our mails arrive at our mail collection point which is our friend’s shop and she has to pay the tax due to insufficient stamps.  We think this is really very, very unreasonable of the applicant, especially when reminders have been issued again and again, and again and again.

So, no, we will not pay.

Each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis and depends on fund availability. Applications are only processed upon receipt of full documentation. We retain sole discretion to decide on the amount or not to provide (without need to give reasons for such decision).

If an applicant MUST post the application late or insist on putting only 60 sen stamps, please save your money and do not post it.

Thank you.

5 Please put 80 sen stamps
