Chronology: Sebastian Vettel Jolie-Pitt

Gotcha Day: Nov 16, 2011

Unnamed tuxie kitty being fed mashed up softened kibble...on Mama's bosom...
Unnamed tuxie kitty sleeping on a bedding of towels....on Mama's bed.
Clinic Day: Nov 17, 2011
The morning after...notice that kitty has been sleeping (or awake) in the same position. May have internal injuries that render it unable to move about or change position.
All comfy in the PTU. That's the PTU I travelled in that fateful journey between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur...it's OK for kitty to borrow it. Just for a while....
PTU shut, food and water supply included, off to the vet's for kitty.
Vet's Report:
1. Kitty is male.
2. Kitty's age: about three months old.
3. Kitty's weight: 400 gram - about 14oz.
4. Kitty's limbs are unable to move due to, most probably, abuse or injury that didn't heal properly. Only one hind leg seems to move as kitty was scratching his ears with it. Nerve system may have been damaged as a result of injury too. (oh boy! toilet training is a no-no at present, then)
5. Kitty is mite and worm farmer (eeeuuwwww!!!) and so was given a dose of anti-worm and wipes of Frontline for mites.
6. Kitty is undernourished.
7. Kitty to be brought to vet's again in a fortnight.
Mama took kitty shopping at PLC, got him some milk and kitten food, and then to the office as it was nearer, so that he can be fed. Uncle Abid was there to assist Mama with kitten feeding. He (and wife) has 13 cats of their own, mostly strays that they rescue from all over. His wife had even appeared on TV talking about strays and rescue work.
Kitty gets really special attention from Mama. None of us, I repeat, none of us ever got to drink milk from a bottle!
Close up photo of kitty. Look at his whiskers - they've been snipped off by some irresponsible #@$&%!!!! OK....I shouldn't swear but seven million curses on the cretins responsible. Y'all know how important whiskers are to any feline.
Angelina's note: Kitty is now officially adopted by the family and has been named Sebastian Vettel Jolie-Pitt. We chose that name as the name sake is the current Formula 1 champion....and so we want kitty to grow up and be a champion too. He has fighting spirit, we reckon. Other than having a very healthy appetite and loud demanding voice too. Still, purrrlease purrray that his nerves will buck up and he'll be able to move his legs...we shudder the thought of kitty not being able to do the bathing or cleaning up after poo poo and pee pee. Let's not even talk about toilet training for now. purrr....meow!  

Addendum: Read all about cats' whiskers here. A great website, I must say.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

This made me cry...it made me cry on so many levels. It made me cry tears of joy that you have adopted precious Sebastian and it made me cry that some disgusting individual would torture this angel in that way.
I wish I were there to hug you and to give Sebastian a HUGE kiss!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Aunty Caren,
Don't I deserve a hug too? And the rest of the family? It's annoying that Sebastian gets all the loving from Mama now but we forgive him....come, let me hug you now...mmmmwwwaaahhhh! purrr...meow!

Clooney said...

Poor little sweetheart, we are sending Sebastian the biggest purrs possible for his health and recovery. Mama, you are a very kind Lady.

THE DUO said...

Baik hati sungguh Mama Angelina. The name will fit him purfectly soon enough! Just like mine....Mika Hakkinen....har..har.... Doa semoga Sebastian cepat-cepat sembuh & be a great cat.

LOL,
Mika+Yong

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Cloon dear,
Danger is not over yet.....we don't know if his nerve system will be back to normal now. As of now, he can't walk but just roll his body to move. purrr...meow!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

By the way, Sasha has been re-named Sasha Basil Potter to avoid a family feud.She and Uncle Cruikshanks/Crookshanks are best buddies.

LP said...

We have been thinking about Sebastian and keeping all our paws crossed that he has been improving slowly but surely.We know he is in your good, capable hands but we also understand that his condition was critical when you found him.Still purring for you sweet Sebastian!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Cat-from-Sydney said...

CO78,
Been a while since the last kitten (that's Brad, who's already 4 now) so Mama had to be re-trained. Don't worry, the six of us are ever willing to "assist" her. purrr...meow!
