Reversible bags (fundraising) and two more hobo bags

It was from the making of the hobo bags (with lining) that gave my mum the idea of making reversible bags!

Instead of doing just a white/beige lining which involves the making of two bags joining together as one, we could make two bags with presentable fabric so that each bag can be turned inside out and it becomes “another bag” (with a different fabric)!

Here’s how it works:

mini-P3240723

This is the bag sewn with the batik cloth.

mini-P3240719

Inside is the lining, which is actually a whole bag by itself, sewn with another fabric.

Turn the bag inside out and…

mini-P3240721

…you’ll have “another” bag, so to speak!

So, perhaps on some days, you like it batik and on other days, you like it floral.

All bags are currently sewn by my mum.

So now, our foldable bags can be done single-layered or double-layered (with lining).

Foldable bags:

Single-layered:
Small (13 by 17): RM20
Medium (15 by 18): RM25
Large (18 by 22): RM35

Double-layered:
Small RM40
Medium RM50
Large RM70

Hobo bags (all double-layered – also reversible): RM100

We will be using Mr Ooi’s cloth (lots of it) to sew all the bags, so you’ll have a lot of variety.

Thank you very much for your kind support!

Rosie and Daffodil (Day 34)

It has been 34 days since Daffodil rejected Rosie (since the day she came back from the overnight stay at the vet’s for drips).

It’s sad, but that’s the way it is with cats. They go by smell. Rosie’s smell could have changed so much because she is ill or because she had gone to the vet’s overnight.

Rosie tries to go to Daffodil, but Daffodil hisses at her and even smacks her. Even Ginger doesn’t recognise Rosie anymore.

Heidi, Tabs and Tiger do – they are still friends with Rosie.

It’s strange that her own family doesn’t recognise her.

Rosie must miss the daily grooming very much.

She used to be the apple of Daffodil’s eye – Daffodil looks after her a lot and grooms her at every available opportunity.

So, I have been trying to unite them by rubbing Daffodil’s smell on Rosie as much as I can.

mini-IMG20170324181018 mini-IMG20170324181049

Here, Daffodil is interested in Rosie’ food.

mini-IMG20170324181107

So I quickly rub Daffodil’s smell on Rosie, as much as I can.

mini-IMG20170324181127 mini-IMG20170324181154

At least there is no hissing now.

mini-IMG20170324181231 mini-IMG20170324181240

We give Rosie lots of TLC, especially so when she cannot get any from Daffodil anymore.

Daffodil even stays out on the shoe rack and initially refuses to come into the house. Now, she is more willing, but we have to bring her in.

Rosie eats more (Day 34)

So the prognosis is terribly poor, but Rosie seems to be feeling better.

Last night, it must have been in the middle of the night (I don’t have a clock in the room), Rosie asked for food TWICE and she ate quite a bit. It’s definitely more than before.

This morning, she ate on her own again. All three times, it’s kibble.

Tiger seems to be saying something here.

Animals cope with whatever condition they are in. They accept or maybe there is nothing they can do about it, so they live with it.

It is we who will relentlessly try everything possible to help them and that’s because we think we can.

I consulted a holistic pharmacist today on what can be done for cholestasis. As the vets say, there is really nothing to lose at this point. Just try.

Neutering aid for 5 cats in Kuala Lumpur (Amelia Aesha Nathan’s)

We have sponsored RM300 for the neutering of these 5 cats (2 females, 3 males).

My name is Amelia and I emailed you before on September 15th, 2016 regarding my 5 cats.
I have spayed the 5 of them on the 12th of March 2017 and attached are the collages of their before and after pictures.
* For Zara, Daisy and Sundae, the picture was taken about 6 days after the surgery as they were very agitated and I did not want to upset them further. For the rest, it was right after coming home after surgery on the same day. Before pictures were all taken before going to be neutered on the same day.
Here are the backgrounds for each animal.
Daisy (female cat)
Daisy was rescued along with her mother, Zara, and her two brothers, Denis and Timidy as a young kitten (about 1 1/2 weeks old). They were going to be kicked out to the streets from an apartment’s compound in KL.
I was going to find her a new loving home however I just found out that she has FIV even though I gave her all the vaccinations she needed. So, I will be keeping her as I am afraid that her new owners will not give her the necessary extra care she requires.
Zara (female cat)
Zara was rescued along with her three babies (about 1 1/2 weeks old), Denis, Daisy and Timidy. They were going to be kicked out to the streets from an apartment’s compound in KL.
I will be finding her a new loving home if she is confirmed to be healthy after she has been tested again for any illnesses.
Denis (male cat)

Denis was rescued along with his mother, Zara, his sister, Daisy and brother, Timidy as a young kitten (about 1 1/2 weeks old). They were going to be kicked out to the streets from an apartment’s in KL.
I will be finding him a new loving home if he is confirmed to be healthy after he has been tested again for any illnesses.
Timidy (male cat)

Timidy was rescued along with his mother, Zara, his brother, Denis and sister, Daisy as a young kitten (about 1 1/2 weeks old). They were going to be kicked out to the streets from an apartment’s compound in KL.
I will be finding him a new loving home if he is confirmed to be healthy after he has been tested again for any illnesses.
Sundae (male cat)
Sundae was rescued by my sister in front of a restaurant near her university in Kuala Lumpur as a young kitten, covered in ants. We nursed him back to health and plan to keep him with us.
We are constantly rescuing animals and deal with all kinds of problems with them like cancer, FIV, skin diseases, allergies, etc. and this has become financially difficult for us (my family and I) and therefore I am applying for the financial aid.
I hope to hear back from you soon. :)
Thanks,
Amelia Aesha Nathan

Neutering aid for 1 cat in Sentul (Suhanizah bt Zohani’s)

We have sponsored RM60 for the spaying of this cat.

To: Chan Kah Yein <chankahyein@gmail.com>

Selamat Sejahtera Dr Chan,
Saya Suhanizah dari Sentul. Gambar yang disertakan sekali adalah Bebot, betina berusia lingkungan 1 tahun.
Bebot dijumpai jatuh dari tingkat 5 bangunan dalam 5 bulan lepas. Saksi meminta saya merawat, katanya pada mulanya, dia terdengar Bebot bising di tingkat 5 seakan bergaduh. 15 minit kemudian, saksi yg sama berada di ground floor ternampak dia terlantar tidak bergerak. Jadi, dia yakin Bebot terjatuh dari tingkat tersebut. Akibat dari insiden tersebut, Bebot lumpuh.
Sebelum bawa ke klinik ini, saya telah bertanya kepada dua klinik lain untuk pemandulannya, tetapi dua doktor tersebut tidak mahu ambil risiko kerana Bebot lumpuh, dan keduanya meminta melalui proses x-ray. Akhirnya, saya terpaksa membawa ke Klinik ini untuk dia divaksin dan dimandulkan.
Bebot akan terus saya bela memandangkan dia perlu dipakaikan lampin pakai buang selalu. Harap permohonan subsidi ini diterima.
Terima kasih Dr Chan.
