Pray for Tom

This was posted on Thursday, May 12. Somehow it was lost when Blogger decided to go AWOL, along with comments that were published for this and other entries. Somehow they're still in the gmail inbox. Bear with us. Blame it all on Blogger.

Tom is sick.

We took him to the vet.

Excessive shedding of fur because of fungus infection. And laceration, and slow healing (insolent) ulcer, and itchiness. And even ear mites.

So, there are tablets for the next three weeks, and bandage, and cream and liquid medication. He even had his annual injection and deworm. We're all gonna have fun watching Mama and Dad try to feed and apply those on Tom. 
Hey Tom...I think red suits you, warrior! Get well soon.
Angelina's Note: Mama said there rest of us would have to "visit" the vet next week! Oooohh...I hate needles and thermometers. It's for our own good, she said. purrr....meow!

Be nice, stay healthy, and come see us when you can. And please visit MikiCato who's guest-posting over at House Panthers Blog at http://housepanthers.blogspot.com.

Oh dear, that sounds nasty. Why and where did Tom get it from? My cat Kinny is ill too. She lost her appetite, lost weight and nampak lesu. She's 13 years old. Yesterday, we saw her trying to pee/poo but nothing came out. She's got the urge but couldn't release it. Today, my father is going to take him to vet. What do you think is the problem? Kidney failure? Kidney stone? One thing for sure, she is dehydrated.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Yessss. We hear you Uncle Roy! We do want to take over the world. Kitty Rules!!!! purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Nana,
Tom has always been a little bit "manja". Lucky it's just fungus and not fleas or else the rest of us would suffer too.
As for your Kinny, it could be old age.... purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Abang Puteh,
Nama je sakit, tapi selera makan macam biasa je. Nak makan ubat pil bolehlah tipu, gaul dengan wet food. Tapi time nak sapu kat badan tu bukan main susah lagi. Ngada-ngada budak besar ni. purrrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Rosmawati,
Kita semua pun harap dia cepat sembuh...dah Mama asyik layan dia je...kalau dah baik, layan kami yang lainlah pulak kot. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty DC,
He walks funny with the bandage on. Nak panjat meja pun susah.... purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
I have been supportive. In fact I'm the one who's been telling him: "Be still Tom, Mama wants to put ointment on your paw." He is my brother after all..... purrr....meow!

Alamak.. Angelina takut pergi klinik ke..
Macam orang dolu dolu ajer..;))

6. From m.q.
kesiannya....rajin2 makan ubat tau...

7. From CO78
Poor Tommy! We will purr hard for him and keep our paws crossed for his speedy recovery. Maybe this is caused by the stress of travel and reestablishing himself at a new place? I know the hot weather has made my Rowdies overgroom themselves. Poor furries!

8. From IA
Where did you get that fungus from Tom? Not from that "over the sea cat" aka Angelina ????

9. From Aunty Gina
Poor Tom...I pray that you will get well soon. Stebie too has some fungal infection on his body and ear. The vet said that this may be due to stress. Err...Stebie stressed?? Yeah...due to too much sleep perhaps.

Get well quick Tom. Take care.

10. From Aunty Carolyn
I hope Tom doesn't try and bite the bandage off! Poor little guy :( Hope he recovers soon.

Hi Tricia,
Welcome to our crazy world. Thanks for the big purrs...Tom is one very spoilt big boy....sigh.... purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Ezza/Abang Puteh,
Memang dia liat makan ubat. Anak sulunglah katakan.... purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Rosmawati,
Aminnnn..... purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
I've been supportive and give him encouragement (hic!) whenever Mama tries to feed him medicine. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Ayoh Wang,
Mana ada kita takut. Kita suka naik kereta pergi vet tau. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

m.q. dear,
Itulah masalahnya....liat nak makan ubat. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

CO78,
Errr....it's not Tom who had to travel and re-establish himself, that was Brad and I.... purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Mother of Ilham,
Ish! Why are you blaming me? He's the only one with the problem. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Gina,
The vet said Tom's a hygiene problem. It's difficult to handle him so he didn't bathed as much as other people. So now he needs regular baths, fortnightly. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Carolyn,
Tom walked funny with bandage on and he tried to kick it off. Luckily it stayed for the required three days. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty DC,
Bandage dah buka dah...kalau tak tu kelakar je dia berjalan. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Pat,
Thanks for the purrayers. Tom is healing quickly it seems....no prob with his appetite at all. purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Nana,
Maybe we should send him to your lab to be examined. Mama was unhappy coz the regular vet took his blood and skin samples and said there's nothing that they can detect when it's obvious he was suffering. So we're now with a new vet. A little bit further but....you know my Mama.... purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Uncle Roy,
We visited MikiCato at HousePanthers but couldn't leave any pawprint there....you know....naughty Mr Blogger.... purrr....meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

MKG dear,
No mouse in this house, no fun. Any mouse in your garden? purrr....meow!
