Momoy : The First Cat I Ever Have

Posted: November 26, 2008 in The Purrrrs

Momoy was the first cat i ever have. I never liked cat. But since i found her, she changed my perception about their species.

It was midnite and heavy rain. And i was creating new best record – staying awake for 66 hours to finish my freelance job, designing the interior for Kepala Batas Hospital. I heard a kitten’s cried from outside. But since it was raining, i couldn’t trace the cries. I fall asleep around 5am and when i woke up at 7am, i still heard the cries. The rain has stopped. I walked along the corridor to find the kitten.

Opposite of my house, there was an empty unit. I tried my luck, stretched my neck into the pantry area and found the kitten was there! She was abandoned in a box and was so dirty. I took her home. Mr Am was disagreed about keeping a cat in our home since we have a lot of hamsters, chipmunks, squirrels and a rabbit. But who could insist a helpless kitten? The eyes were not yet opened, the umbilical cord was still there. She was soooo young to be abandoned! Poor kitty 😦 I assumed she was less than 3-days old when i found her.

But since i was too sleepy (yeah, successful creating a new record!) and tired, i couldn’t focus on her. And knowing that i was too lack of knowledge about handling or caring a kitten, i sent her to a vet for a few days. Instead of boarding her, Dr T helped to feed her and taught her to suck the feeding bottle. Soon as i regained my strength, i took her from the vet and since then, she lived with us! My first kitty! And i named her as Momoy. Was it a cute name for cute kitty? πŸ˜‰

I fed her with Troy Animalac formula 4 times a day. I sacrificed my lunch hour to rush home everyday and fed her milk until she was about 6 weeks old and can eat the soaked Royal Canin Babycat food by her own.

She was spayed to remove her pyometra on 9 Nov 2008.

Since that day, she couldn’t eat by her own. I have to hand feed her. Her condition became worse after she got a jaundice. There was a fresh bruises on the shaved area, but the vet couldn’t tell why.

18 Nov 2008, a day before her death, i took to the vet. The vet cleaned her wound.

Can see the bruises clearly?

The vet said she was getting better and we thought she’ll get through. But we was wrong!

Momoy left us forever πŸ˜₯

I went home and see her in this position. I thought she was sleeping, but she's not breathing!

Momoy’s Post Spay #2

Posted: November 19, 2008 in The Purrrrs

I took Momoy home on 11 Nov 2008, 2 days after she had been spayed. Actually that day, i was supposed to help the vet feeding her medicine. Since no one dare to touch her and the vet couldn’t inspect her stitches or clean her, so i brought her home.

At home, i realised that she wasn’t eating at all. She wasn’t eating since the surgery! And she was vomited almost everyday. She couldn’t eat at all. So on 13 Nov, i took her to the vet again. We were at the vet’s place for almost 2 hours. She was given 250ml IV fluid and force-feed. Before fed her, the vet gave a tablet to stop her from vomit.

On the same day, the vet told me Momoy got a jaundice. The eyes and gum looked yellowish and pale. According to the vet, the pus had entered her liver and caused the jaundice. And since she wasn’t vaccined, it is easy for her to get the jaundice. The vet said this can be cured, but takes some days. Momoy had to take additional medicine to cure the jaundice.

At the same night, i notice there was a flabby part near her right front leg.

Can u see the flabby part in this photo?

I asked the vet to comfirm. The vet said it is normal for the cat to looks flabby a bit after given IV fluid.

She passed stool on Saturday morning, 15 Nov, 5 days after the surgery.

I feed Momoy with Hill’s Prescription Diet, 3 times a day.

Smells yummmm..!

I mix it with plain water before pump it into Momoy's mouth.

Furrybutts and Tru-Luv Rabbitry have broke the rules! Instead of giving the gold cards to 5 chosen blogs, they clonned the card and passed to everybody in their blogroll! Errr… Does it legal here?

Since The Fluffies is listed in their blogroll, so we want to claim our card too.. Err.. does that mean we got 2 gold cards here? :mrgreen: We can buy more food, accessories, toys, build a bunny-condominium and plan our holiday trips to their place too :mrgreen: Blissful!

Don’t want to be such a greedy, so we just take one gold card only :P. Here it is!

Owh, Gold Card!!

Owh, Gold Card!!

And we would like to share it with the others who listed in our blogroll too :mrgreen:

Err... Is that mean we can claim our individual cages, Mom?

Owh, our Achilles demanding his own cage. He made some fuss last nite. He bullied the others and tried to hump all of them including our male, Alfie! So i put him and Alfie in an individual cage. The females are using Mickybell’s cage for temporary until i get them a cage. Mickybell? Heh, she’s happy because she can shares Mocha’s cage now!

Monday’s Midnite

Posted: November 11, 2008 in Inside The Playpen

Since we just got our food restocked, so i gave The Fluffies extra feed. I spent 3 hours in the room, hand-feed the juniors and grooming and cleaning their cages. It is molting-month. There’s a lot of fur behind the shelf and everywhere.

It was midnite, around 1 am and i was about off to bed when i found something interesting about The Fluffies.. i mean, the adults.. Let’s peep on them…

I opened Daddy's door all the night, but he spent all his time inside his cage. Homey bunny, huh?

Dinky stucked her face between the cage bars for hours, facing Daddy's cage.

Momoy’s Post Spay #1

Posted: November 11, 2008 in The Purrrrs

Momoy was spayed on last weekend, 9 November 2008 at 5.00pm. We came to look at her condition at 6.45pm.

Dr T showed us the removed womb. She said, normal womb is pink in colour. But Momoy’s contained pus in her horns.

graphic photo, Tim? Hehehe..

graphic photo, Tim? Hehehe..

Momoy’s pyometra case is at early stage. We hope she’ll recover sooner.

Dr T called me at 3.30pm yesterday, asking me to come over because they didn’t dare to touch her. She’s a fierce fighter! Especially to strangers. But that time, i was in a meeting. I left office at 4.30, soon as the meeting over.

I reached Dr T’s place at 5pm, with our little Memon. Memon tried to lick her, but Momoy pushed Memon away. I fed her medicine and patted and talked to her. But she didn’t stop growling. I think because she was really in pain. She refused to eat, but this morning Dr T told me she ate a bit. Owh, at least she’s eating.

Dr T told me maybe we can bring her home today, depending on her condition when i go to visit her this evening.

Pyometra in Cat : Momoy

Posted: November 6, 2008 in The Purrrrs
Our first kitty, Momoy

Our first kitty, Momoy

Our 13-months old Momoy had her first contraceptive jab on May 2008. That time, she was 7-months old.

In the mid of July 2008, Momoy showed some sickness symptoms. She had diarrhoea, vomit, lost her appetite, and her stomach was hard. And there was some discharge from her private parts.

We took her to our regular vet, Dr P. Dr P said maybe Momoy had eaten something poisonous. So he gave some jabs, and anti-diarrhoea medicine and charcoal.

But after a week, her condition didn’t get better, so we brought her to Dr P again. This time, Dr P suspected Momoy having an enterhitis. He said there was discharge coming from her anal. So he gave another jab, said it is for her liver. But after that, Momoy was constipated, she can’t pass stool for 4 days, distended stomach and everytime we touch her stomach, she cried loud. Dr P gave 2 types of tablet, including laxative to soothe her bloated stomach. We have to monitor Momoy from time to time. Everytime she can’t pass stool, we’ll give her both tablets.

(

Look at her distended stomach. All this time we tought she is obese 😦

Now, after a few months, she never shows any sickness at all. But the brownish discharge still there. And she’ll cries when we try to hold her. So last week, we took her to a young vet, Dr T.

Can u see the the brownish discharge from this photo?

After diagnostic, Dr T confirmed me that Momoy is pyometra positive!! And the fluid was discharged from her vulva, not her anus! What a shock! 😯 Dr T said maybe it was the side effect of the contraceptive jab she was taken earlier. And Dr T said we must remove her ovary as soon as possible (spay her) to stop her suffer πŸ˜₯

She spends most of her time laying like this.. And she loves being alone, hates to be disturbed
