Daffodil’s new house

This is Daffodil’s new house. It’s a very small box in the kitchen.

She loves it and spends most of her time in it.

Daffodil’s tumour ruptured yesterday and there were blood stains all over the floor. But other that that, she’s okay. The tumour is shrinking and drying […]

Tiger’s abscesses Day 7

Today was Tiger’s check-up and the vet was very pleased with his healing.

No more flushing is required now. Only the oral antibiotics (one more week) and topical application of povidone iodine and the Polybamycin ointment. Hopefully, there will be no secondary abscesses.

The vet shaved a little bit more upwards just to check […]

Tiger’s abscesses Day 6 (the soft mass is also an abscess)

All the wounds are healing.

And finally, now we know that the soft masses on the side, which joined up and became one big soft mass, is also an abscess.

Either it ruptured or Tiger bit it.

I noticed some liquid oozing out of a tiny puncture hole this afternoon, so I dabbed […]

Tiger’s abscesses (Day 5)

Now that the wounds are healing, Tiger must be feeling much better. He goes upstairs at night and sleeps at my […]

Tiger’s abscesses (Day 4) and Vincent’s monastic lifestyle

Yesterday morning, I was really happy when I saw that Tiger’s wounds had dried up. That was first thing in the morning.

But before I could take a photo, I guess Tiger bit his wounds and one of them started bleeding again. My guess is, perhaps when it is dried up, it itches, so we […]

Tiger’s abscesses Day 2

Thanks to a well-behaved Google Maps, we found out way to the vet’s and back home safely today!! For someone as severely directionally dyslexic as me, this is quite an achievement.

So, how are Tiger’s abscesses today?

Thankfully, according to the vet, it is showing signs of healing…quite well too.

I sent a photo to […]

Tiger’s (hidden) abscesses

Over the last 2-3 weeks, we’ve noticed Tiger hunching quite a bit, but thought nothing about it. His appetite had been good and he seemed happy enough.

“Leave well enough alone and don’t be paranoid” – I thought this would be a good motto to adopt. Trips to the vet are always very stressful for […]
