… but it won’t be the end of the world as NIC, left in pic with best pal Jurgen, a doubly blind old bear rescued from the cruel bear bile farms of China show. Both NIC and Jurgen are of course in the safekeeping of animalsasia
It does seem that, in a month’s time, Pierre will most likely lose his right eye:
Bui Bui has been to Dr Heng this afternoon. We were happy to hear that his left eye’s water pressure is under control. Unfortunately, the eyesight from his right is not looking good. He could be blind in the right eye. Dr Heng has kept trying to test his response from his right eye, but sad to know that there is no response at all. Dr Heng has decided to give him a final chance before removing his right eye. Bui Bui has been given some eye drops for a month. His right eye will need to be removed if there is still no response at the next visit which is one month away.
A gentle reminder that Pierre (and his friends in the existing colony of 8, especially Pumpkin) needs help and would still like to have a home:

Save 9 x 9 Lives!!
A small angelic mummy cat with 8 little devilishly cute rascals in tow need homes urgently.
Mummy cat is a ginger white lady, affectionate, trusting and angelically kissy.
Her family are 8 kittens, feisty 2 month olds with a serious case of the CUTES. She has 2 ginger boys, 2 ginger girls, two tabby girls and 2 calicos, girls of course. The rascals, affectionately called “little devils” for their lively play and antics, are about 2 months old. The whole family are savvy with the litter box.
Homes needed for all of them, preferably in pairs or more. Genuine adopters only please.
Please contact Cynthia Loh at 81800158 or Phyllis at 97348329.
To see more of the family’s pictures and read the details of their story, click here.
The loving ginger mummy cat and her brood of 8 were callously abandoned in a carpark where stray dogs are known to roam and attack cats. Property management threatened to call “the authorities” if they were not removed. So the caregiver turned to blessinghome for help. The family is now safely ensconced, so mummy cat can concentrate on overseeing the constant wrestling and acrobatic antics of her 8 dearest little devils. Mummy and rascals are all awaiting their real forever homes.

Order Chinese New Year goodies and do a meowing good turn
Please help the kitties of Blessing Home. Click the cutey pic above or here to view the goodies on offer and ordering details!
PS There is a Chinese belief it is bad luck (imho it’s bad form too) to go into the new year owing things. This minion has been more than behind in updates to our kitty supporters. Mea Culpa. The tumbling weeds through tec bears witness to the chaos I’m struggling with. I WILL get up to date before the month end. Please bear with me.
Though I’ve been shirking my minionly online obligations, I have not stayed away from doing my usual lurking and photo-mo stalking.
While I sort through my thoughts on our efforts for the clannies and homeseekers, I’ve continued to snap pics of them all, including the slackers of course. But I have also been getting my virtual fill of kitten p0rn via avenues like trailing after the True Blood six, who are in the wonderful care of one familiar with love and hisses. It’s addictive, to say the least. But it’s also wonderful to see such dedicated effort, and I’ve been cheering for them. It doesn’t hurt that their foster is an adept of snugglecore.
Rheilly (right): … aren’t we cuteness enough?! Meowr!
Philly: Yeah, it’s not exactly easy work you know. The things I put up with.
But of course, events kitty have continue to evolve. Updates will be trickling online.
Of course this is no guarantee that following what Dawn said guarantees your TNRM to work, but having positive contributors to the situation surely add that much potential for success than disincentives. But well, it can be rather discouraging and sometimes feelings of indignation, injustice and wasted effort and hopelessness wells up. Especially following the recent spate of kitty letters and articles in the press, online and some RL issues.
Dr Henna-Jekyll contented after a good breakfast and some attention from btmao, still going strong after 5 years and who knows how many litters before her mojo was finally stolen. Ms Henna-Hyde will return shortly.
For a wild child like Henna, who still is wary of close contact with people after years of btmao tlc, one must ponder: Adoption – always the best thing for a cat?
But whatever the current situation, we must not forget it’s about the Tipped Ear Ones that we minions do what we do – feed responsibly, care for and sterilise them aka TNRM because real progress has been, and is being made, even though sometimes it feels like running on the spot. So here’s a timely refresher on TNRM, with emphasis on M=management.

[EDIT: Gretel has passed on in the evening of 30 Mar.]
Just got this in the mail:
Do you know that FIP can actually affect older cats? I didn’t know it until now. According to the vet, FIP can stay dormant in a cat for quite a long time with no signs and symptoms to show. When it’s in the body, it starts mutating. Once the cat stresses, there’s an outbreak and that’s the end of the road.
Gretel, now 5 years old, was rescued when she was a little kitten. Fiona board her at the cattery as Gretel is just too timid to survive on the streets. Now Gretel has contracted a weird virus that is attacking her red blood cells and her mouth is full of ulcers, hence she couldn’t eat. Our 1st thoughts was FIV and FELV so we sent her to the vet. After teeth removal, some blood tests, oxygen and drip, the vet bill for the 5 days or so of stay came to $800+. Fiona pleaded with the vet to lessen the bill because 5 days amounting to $800 is definitely alot. We want to bring Gretel back to the cattery if possible so that she can spend her remaining days at the place she grew up at. But until she is able to discharge, the bills are still adding up and I would like to help raise some funds for Fiona to cover the bills, considering that she spends most of her income on stray cats. She would definitely have trouble with this sudden hit.
To start the ball rolling, I’ve already contributed $100 to Gretel’s vet bills. I hope you will be able to come up with a bit of contribution to help Gretel out as well. I know times are bad and the cats also suffer along with us. If you can help, you can contribute by either of the following methods:
1) ATM / Internet Transfer to Fiona
2) Write a cheque payable to : “The Animal Doctors Pte Ltd” and mail it to Blk 108 Ang Mo Kio, Ave 4, #01-96, Singapore 560108
Thank you so much.
There is no cure for FIP. A survivor of FIP is very rare. We can give the cat supportive care which will make her more comfortable and possibly extend her life for a short amount of time. Because the dry form of FIP progresses more slowly, cats with this form can sometimes live longer than those with the wet form. This is especially true if the eye is the only organ affected by granulomas. Cats who have an appetite, no neurological signs, and no anemia usually respond better to the supportive care.
