I Miss U, Moris

Posted: July 23, 2011 in The Purrrrs

I had her for only 8 weeks.

I wish i can have her for at least 8 years……

She was an easy-bonded kitty.

Sweet, but little grumpy.

The coolest one. The quiet one.

Everything was so quick and now i lost her.

I used to lost many pets before. But the pain is still hurting me the same way.

Why? Why can’t i have more years with her?

MY FOREVER PET
There’s something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart — it needs to mend.
Though some may say, “It’s just a pet,”
I know I’ve lost a friend.
You’ve brought such laughter to my home,
and richness to my days.
A constant friend through joy or loss
with gentle, loving ways.
Companion, friend, and confidante,
A friend I won’t forget.
You’ll live forever in my heart,
My sweet, forever pet.
— Susanne Taylor

Farewell, Sweet Moris….

Moris was pregnant.

I only realized it after touched her tummy 2 weeks ago. Can felt the nipples bulging and bigger than usual. The tummy was getting bigger and bigger each day.

Thursday nite (14 July 2011), i felt her tummy is suddenly smaller than the days before. Panicked!

So on Saturday morning (16 July 2011), i took Moris for ultrasound to check her tummy.

The result : Moris and the babies were healthy. I saw the 2 babies – bones and skeletons and their heart beatings. Crossed my fingers that Moris will delivers her babies safely. And hope all the babies will born healthily.

I didn’t took take any photo of her in the vet’s treatment room. I was too busy helping the 2 vets holding her for the ultrasound process. I only have her photos during our 45 minutes journey home after the treatment:

Boring..

Are we home yet? No?

Nothing amused me

*idea.. idea*

Ahah! Maybe i shud explore a bit

Wowwww.. too fast too purrrrious!

Hey! Don't talk on the phone while driving, human!

*rubbing the human*

Helloooooooo~

Ok, he won't listen to me, mommy!

I better sit on mommy's lap

Eh??

Ehh?? I can't see more view from here

How about here?

Ok, I think here is better spot!

Prrrrrrrrrrrss~

That was last week….

Yesterday when i reached home at 8pm, i saw Moris was soaked with blood. I called the nearest vet, but she was not available. I drove to Gills Vet Clinic in Penang Island, but there were too many pets looking for treatment. And they have some emergency cases too. So i called the vet who performed neutering to all my bunnies. He accepted the emergency surgery. So i went to him.

She was calm when i saw her soaked in the blood.
She was calm on the way to the vet. Rubbing her head to my hand.
She was calm when i put her on the surgery table.

She was a bit nervous when i left the room to go to the toilet.
But calm again as she saw me came toward her and sat by her side.

The vet did the emergency surgery to save the babies. He gave the injectable anesthetic and Moris vomited twice before she passed out.

Blood was everywhere.

She vomited. Vomited her pain. Blood was everywhere….

The vet said the is an infection in her uterus. One of the 2 babies soaked in pus. Both were not survive 😦

I see 2 beautiful babies. Beautiful, but pale and cold.
I buried. I buried them deep inside of my heart.

We reached home around 11.30pm.

My heart ripped seeing her lying like this 😦

But she didn’t recover from the anesthetic.

She left us at 1.10am.

RIP, my sweet Moris. U will be missed…

My heart is still aching.

I can feel the severe pain inside.

Hurt like hell.

Dear God, please take this pain away as i can’t bear it anymore~

Ouch!

I got new a tattoo after bathing one of the schmelly Purrrrs last weekend.

Really ouch!

And who did this to me?

My veeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrryy schmelly Jebat Cullen!

Thanks, boy!

While i was searching for my DIY Littertray Idea photos i shared in a local forum, i found a lot of Shiro’s photos in that forum too…

My post on 10 March 2010. I believe i haven’t upload these photos in my blog before :

Who is more handsome?

Of course la my 'Si Budak Bucuk' πŸ˜€

We miss u, Budak Bucuk!

A new rabbit owner was asking me about my bunnies littertray. So i have to dig some photos i shared in one of the local forum i joined last 3 years.

I have 12 bunnies in 10 separate cages in the Rabbit Room. I cant afford buying expensive littertray with grill on top, so I DIY them myself.

These are what u need for your DIY littertray :
♦ Cheap plastic trays, RM2-3 each from Kedai RM2 or HappyHome Shop nearby.
♦ Wiremesh/net. U can easily get it from hardware shop, RM6-8/meter. 1 meter can make 6 littertrays depend on the tray’s size.
♦ Wire cutter to cut the wiremesh/net

Cut the wiremesh. Make it bigger than the littertray.

Bend the each end of the wiremesh. This is to prevent your bunny from step into their urine.

Taraaaaaa! A simple littertray with grill on top! Easy rite?

I don’t use any litter material or bedding in the littertray.But if u’re using bedding material like Woodypet, u can use a wire net and put it on top of the bedding to prevent the bedding from kick out of the tray.

To maintain the littertray to be as clean as new : Soak the littertray with vinegar for 10-15 minutes once a week or at least 2 weeks once to get rid the urine stain. Then scrub and wash with mild detergent πŸ™‚

"Naaahh.. I'll let the boys do the job," *lazy mode*

The New Purrrrs?

Posted: June 5, 2011 in The Purrrrs

Last few weeks, Memon was missing AGAIN in the midnite. But this time i know, she must be got into the house downstairs who found her before. My neighbour was not at home, so i left a notice under my neighbour’s door the next morning and off to work. I posted up a new poster on the notice board at the lobby lift, incase people find her outside.

Posted-up poster

Within a few hours, my neighbour called and said he already put Memon inside the house thru my open cat-room’s window and he closed the window too so Memon cant escape again.

I forgot (lazy actually) to remove the poster. Until….

It was Sunday morning, 29 May 2011 and i was sleeping in my room when u heard a loud noise outside my apartment. It was my neighbour, knocking my kitchen windows, calling if anybody inside the house. When i opened the door, the aunty said “I found your cat. My husband managed to catch it. Come and take your cat,”

I told my neighbour that all my 4 Purrrrs were inside the house. No cat was missing. But she asked me to see the cat first or else her hubby will send the poor cat to the nearby market. She said the cat was stealing food in other houses so they have to throw her away.

It is her first photo. Cute isn’t she? How could someone abandoned and neglected this sweety?
Notice the collar around her neck? It was worn out. Looks like she had been by herself for months?

Looks like a long haired? Semi long haired? Mixed Persian?

Skinny, dusty fur... but soon i'll make u pretty with nice warm bath πŸ™‚

Moris' old collar

I gave her a bath with pest-free shampoo and quarantine her. I named her as Moris πŸ™‚

She is very behave, looks good and healthy. No sign of illness, but very picky on food. She doesn’t know how to chew kibbles, so i have to soak the kibbles for her. Today i took her to the vet. The vet assumed her age is around 4-5 years old based on her teeth worn out. And the vet said she is a blue cream mix-persian. She is 2.72kg, dewormed and vaccinated. I’ll find a good home for her soon. I will only pass her to a new parent who willing to spay her. If u’re interested, email me at nicoty_yne at yahoo dot com for for interview πŸ˜› Haha.

A few days after i got Moris, i found a limping female cat near the food stall i went for dinner last Thursday, 2 June 2011. She was crawling in front of my car. I took out some dog kibbles (Sorry, i only carry dog kibbles that time), and fed her. I told my Mr Am, “If she is still there after we finish our dinner, I’ll take her home,”

And yes she was there, crawling under the car who parked beside mine. So i took her home and named her as Cimoneng (Si Meow Kuning / The Yellow Kitty). She was very skinny, dirty, crusty, smelly. Typical stray cat, huh.

The 4 Purrrrs are kept in their own room because i have no other place to quarantine Moris. Moris is caged in the dining area so i have to put Cimoneng in the playpen at the kitchen entrance. Sori, Cimoneng. Hope u’re ok with that.

Cimoneng is a very quiet cat. Since she cant move a lot and cant jump, i just placed her in the playpen. Furnished her with littertray, feeding bowl and a sleeping basin. She picked up her littertray very quickly. No need to train. Good girl.

On her 2nd day, she got diarrhea, so i cant bath her. I gave her 3cm of Benebac probiotic and fasten her for about 8 hours. The diarrhea gone. Very fast! πŸ˜€ Benebac is very useful. I would recommend all pet owners to have one in their first aid kit. It cost about RM35-45 per tube and very hard to get in Malaysia. It has a very short expiry date, but worth to have it during emergency. U can also use Lacto-5 probiotic as alternative, and it contained the same bacteria as in the Benebac. Lacto-5 can be found in most of the local pharmacy. It costs RM45 per bottle/30capsules.

A must have 1st aid kit! Benebac Probiotic πŸ˜€

Lacto-5 Probio

Most vets will recommend u to feed yogurt, but please remember to find a non-dairy and non-sugar plain yogurt. Most of the cats cant tolerate dairy products.

Ok, back to Cimoneng…

I already bathed her yesterday, scrubbed her crusty ears and head with a small towel and disinfectant all the towels with mild bleach.

After a warm bath

A little close up

I took Cimoneng to the vet today, together with Moris. The vet asked if i would like to vaccine this one too. But since she looks too weak and receiving her Ivermectin jab and deworming, i think she will get her vaccination next week on her next follow-up mites treatment. The vet checked on her legs and hind part and said it is untreatable. It was caused by her old age. The vet estimated Cimoneng is about 8-9 years old. Fuh…! She is damn skinny. He is about 1.78kg and has no muscle to support her hind/joints. The vet said the calsium supplement is no need. He doesn’t believe in supplement. Said it will burden the liver.

Has any of u experience this in your old cat? Share with me please..

All the 6 kitties are sleeping now.

Flubby has a mild flu. I sent her to the vet last 2 weeks. She got tummy upset during the 1-week medication. She finished her antibiotic, but her flu comes again. I’m thinking about taking her to the vet again soon. Please send some positive vibes to us. Hope everything will turn out ok soon πŸ™‚

Have a great Sunday πŸ˜‰

Farewell Chepard

Posted: May 9, 2011 in The Little Critters

Remember our chipmunks, Chepard & Chip?

Chepard was not feeling well since the last 3 weeks so Mr Am took him home so that i can nurse him. I’ve been force-feeding him for the last few days, but Chepard’s condition was getting worse day by day due to his old age, i guess. He was about 7 years old.

He lost his appetite and badly dehydrated. His tears kept coming from his eyes before his passing.

He left us on 1.40am, 2 May 2011, with me beside him all the night..

RIP, little Chepard ~

He was the longest pet lived with us. 7 years with full of joy and great memories. Hop free to Rainbow Bridge, little one. You will be missed.
