Looks like we made it, Pole!

Today is the last day of Pole’s Cystaid Plus, so it’s been 30 days since her last FLUTD.

I open up the capsule and mix the powder with Cindy’s mousse. Initially, she licked it up herself, but after a few days, she refused, so I rub the mixture onto her mouth and she quite […]

Pole’s updates after 1 day

Yesterday, Pole was eating Coco&Joe’s already. But by night time, she “suddenly” remembered that she was supposed to be boycotting Coco&Joe’s.

Still, I just offered her Coco&Joe’s whenever she asked for food throughout the night. She merely licked a little bit each time and the other cats would finish it for her. I finally relented […]

Pole’s updates

Pole seems fine now, though she is not back 100% yet.

No more crouching, she can stretch out now.

Then, something unexpected happened in the late afternoon. Pole asked for food and I decided to just offer her Coco&Joe’s.

She ate!!!

Believe it! She ate. This […]

Ginger’s visit to the vet’s

Ginger wasn’t eating as well as he usually is yesterday and by this morning, he was snorting and sneezing out cloudy mucus.

I nebulized him first before taking him to the vet’s with Pole.

Ginger could not eat his regular food today. I think it’s because his upper respiratory tract is all congested so […]

Pole’s emergency – seizure or spinal spur?

Pole gave me a fright this morning.

I found her lying on her pillow, looking visibly sick. She did not come to the grille to wait for breakfast as she always does every single morning.

Something was definitely wrong.

She looked very sickly too. I could not for the life of me figure out what […]

Pole’s check-up at the vet’s (blood pressure and thyroid under control)

We took Pole along with Smurfy as her check-up is due as well.

To recap, Pole is 14 years old, has CKD (chronic kidney disease) which is exacerbated by her hyperthyroidism (on transdermal Methimazole) and recently, she was diagnosed with high blood pressure (on oral Amlodipine) and she is also prone to FLUTD (urinary tract […]

Smurfy’s vaccination visit to the vet’s

Today is Smurfy’s second vaccination at the vet’s.

We took him together with Pole (due for check-up and blood test).

All is good for Smurfy. He got his second 4-in-1 vaccination and his second FeLV vaccination too. He was also dewormed and given Revolution spot-on.

Smurfy weighed 2.1kg. I think he might overtake Pole in […]

Minnie’s check-up at the vet’s today (liver readings normal)

This morning was Minnie’s appointment at the vet’s.

She’s getting braver now so she made noise in the car all the way there.

The good news is….Minnie’s liver readings are back to normal now!!

It started with an ALT reading of 394 when first rescued on 18th April 2020. Then, it went down to 329, […]

Pole’s eating dilemma

Pole has not been able to eat back her staple diet of Coco&Joe’s ever since she was diagnosed with gastritis.

She has been eating canned food with Primal sprinkles.

I still haven’t given up, though and I’m still trying all sorts of ways to transition her back to 100%, if that is possible.

So […]
