Rain, rain, please go away

It’s been so terribly cold these days with the frequent rain.

Between hot and cold, for the sake of the cats, I prefer “hot”.

When it rains, the cats would come into the Bunny’s Room and they have cushions, blankets, towels to keep them warm.

But lately, Bunny has decided that he wants to stay […]

Bunny’s Poopy Gallery

It’s been 15 days since Bunny underwent the manual evacuation of his bowels. And it’s been 15 days of meticulous monitoring of his bowel movements plus a strict regimen of extra water, supplements and laxatives to help Bunny.

I’ve also started a “Poopy Gallery” to monitor and keep track of Bunny’s bowel movement and the […]

The ongoing cold war

This has been going on for years.

Ginger would sit in front of the grille and taunt the alphas. Usually it’s either Cow or Indy who would go crazy.

But now, Cow, Bunny and Indy get to come out to the patio every day, so this changes the dynamics. They […]

Tabs fur grows back

It has been a month since Tabs’ balding problem started.

The vet said it was an allergy problem and Revolution spot-on should do the trick.

Her fur is growing back in all three spots on the head and back of the neck now. We applied the spot-on again yesterday and there will […]

Bunny’s ongoing challenge

This month has been a very challenging month for me. It started with Tabs’ sudden balding problem, then Indy’s GI issues and this was followed by Bunny’s constipation problem.

To cut a long story short, Bunny needed a manual evacuation of his bowels as he was too constipated until the enema did not even work. […]

Indy’s milestone

I have been force feeding Indy for half a month now. It started with him having some GI issues and that was settled after about a week. Since then, he has been his usual active self but the only thing is that he refuses to eat by himself.

It was no longer a medical problem. […]

Bunny’s magical poop!

Yesterday, I was a totally crazy cat-lady, watching Bunny all day, waiting for him to defecate. The thing with Bunny is that he doesn’t have a fixed place to poop. He uses the whole of the back garden to do it. So I had to watch him as much as I could.

The vet had […]

Getting Bunny to drink more water

Bunny drinking chicken broth.

I started yesterday to explore ways to make Bunny drink more water.

So far, what works is to flavour the water.

Bunny likes virgin coconut oil, so I tried dropping some oil into water and he licked it all up! Virgin coconut oil is also a traditional […]

Bunny’s constipation problem and the manual evacuation

It has been two days since Bunny’s enema on Thursday. Since then, there has been no poop from him.

We palpated him and if we are palpating at the correct place, there seems to be a long, hard piece of faeces in his colon.

I was really hoping he would be able to defecate on […]
