cat purrday friday post: hello furry friends! i’m back…

Hi everyone! It’s really good to be home and there’s no place like it. Well, i don’t like it in the pet hospital. I was so sad when i was there because i missed mummy. And it’s lonely out there because i saw some furry friends who are sick too just like me. But some are really very ill. Sometimes it’s hard for me to sleep too because i always hear the doggie who is a labrador just below my cage who is crying in pain. Oh how i wish i could help her.Then there’s a cat at the other side who has dextrose attached on her leg and it must be painful and even if i said hi, she wouldn’t even glance at me. She is terribly sick. But more than anything else, i missed my mum and i’m sure she missed me too. I don’t want to be at the pet hospital again, ever! 

(Note: on the day when Star was discharged from the pet hospital, i looked for the labrador as her cage below Star was empty. Sadly, she passed and gone to the Rainbow Bridge. Sshhh.. i never told Star about it.)

I so love mummy. She sees to it that i could take my medicines on time. She even had to set her alarms so she could be reminded. All in all, i have 3 medicines which are to be taken at different time intervals so she has 3 alarms for the day. Well, i hate the medicines especially the pill (yuck!) but if those could make me really well then i don’t have any choice, do i? Hmm.. i think i’m really getting well. I eat a lot now, i’m more active and sometimes grumpy if my lil brother Tiger bugs me. I would say i’m back to being myself.

I will be back at the pet hospital on June 15, 2013. Did i just say i don’t want to ever go back there? Sigh! Mummy said that i have to. They will count my blood again. I wonder how they do the counting, it is liquid isn’t it? Oh well, again i must do it. I really want to be well and good and i want this anemia to get out of me forever. Mum said anemia is having a lower than normal number of red blood cells. Oh this medical terms are giving me a headache. Anyway, thank you all for the well-wishes. Mummy is very happy that i have so many many friends who sent their love, thoughts and prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love and kitty kisses…

Please be with me again on my next Cat Purrday Post.

xoxo,

my e-journal: Star’s passion flower, kitty Star is home, i’m happy to the nth power

I received a text message this morning that kitty Star is now eating and i could take her home today. I am so happy. No words could ever describe my extreme happiness. I thanked God that my kitty is getting okay.

I also noticed this morning that the passion flower bud has opened. I already have the red variety and this one has purple flowers. I will be calling it Star’s passion flower because it bloomed today as i was about to take my kitty home. My kitty Star is doing okay and for the first time i saw my plant’s flower so it’s a double happiness for me today.

When i arrived at the hospital i saw that Star is still eating and that’s a great sign. Her doctor explained to me how to administer her medications at home. Here’s her photo, she’s in the carrier and ready for home. What a great joy!

As soon as i arrived home, i wrote a big reminder which i posted on the fridge about her 3 medicines that are to be given at different time intervals. When i asked her doctor as to what really went wrong with Star, she says that she is anemic. The disease might be hereditary because of her breed or it may be caused by viral infection. The 3 medicines are prednisone for the management and treatment of her immune system, antibiotics for viral infection and iron supplements to aid in the production of red blood cells. She will be having a recheck on June 15, 2013 for complete blood count again to see if the medications are really working for her.

Kitty Star and I are truly grateful for all your thoughts, prayers, concern and well wishes. Well, she will really have something to say on her Cat Purrday Friday Post so please watch out for that.

Sending love and thanks to everyone.
