Playtime for Mira

Mira loves this green toy (daddy calls it monster). She had it since she was a kitten and it has been her friends since. She loves wrestling with it which provides endless laughter for us.

Mira at The Vet

Mira was all excited on her visit to the vet here. The first time she went, she was only 1 month old and I brought her in using my handbag.. Now she’s all grown up and ready to explore.

Aggie Crossed the Rainbow Bridge

Today at exactly 3pm, our furkid Aggie crossed the rainbow bridge.

Aggie was diagnosed with kidney failure a week earlier and upon the diagnosis have been treated at the vet with IV drips and immediately placed on renal diet. On 16th August, the vet was satisfied that she was doing much better and armed with her meds and more renal food, Aggie was allowed home with an appointment to see the vet on 22nd August.

Aggie’s trip to the vet

Once home though, Aggie didn’t want to eat her renal food. She wanted her normal food and it became a challenge to coax her to eat and drink. She would follow me around asking for food and each time I feed her the renal food, she will eat a bit and just walk away. She I had to force feed her each time especially since she still got to take her meds after food.

On Sunday, 17th August, she ate her food herself. I was relieved. She slept most of the day.

At 2am in the morning, I fed her and had a few hours of quiet time when I changed her bandages (she had sores on her feet that the vet had attended to and needed bandage change daily). I spoke softly to her telling her how much I love her and that she will survive this and be strong but she need to eat and take her meds. She purred and it seems she was listening.  I placed her in her cage after that (she was kept in a cage at night because of the sores and because she was peeing all over the house – kidney patient cats do that).

Aggie loves boxes!

Around 7am I woke up and check up on her and saw that she was sleeping, I stroked her head and I went back to bed. I awoke again at 2pm to feed Aggie once again and to give her meds. I saw that was lying down and that she was salivating badly. She was also having a had time breathing and so Azwaj suggested holding her head up so she can breath. We were in a dilemma at to what to do then. We could bring her to the vet and have the vet do all sorts of things to her or we could let her go.

Me and Azwaj took turns holding her. There were times when it sounded like she stopped breathing but then she gasp for air again. I was changing into fresh clothing (Aggie peed on me) when Azwaj called me and asked me to hold her. The end was near. We could see it and we could feel it. I took her into my arms, spoke to her to let go of the pain and just run free to the other side. It looked then like she looked at me and said her goodbye. She took one last long breath and then she was gone.

I sob, uncontrolled sobbing as she was our baby. We went through her skin eczema, her food allergies and her two eye surgeries and she had always been strong and her spirits high. But this time she was defeated. She was no longer young and she was done fighting. In a way we were glad that she didn’t suffer as long as her sister Anja, who also suffered from kidney failure.

Azwaj buried her alongside Nina, who we lost in July. Aggie was 13 years old.

Hello Baby Mir

One month ago, Azwaj found four bundle of kittens joy on his way to the shop downstairs. Unfortunately three of them passed on one after another that same week which caused both A and me such grief and that left me with puffy eyes for almost a week :(

One of them, we named her Baby Mir (short for Miracle) survived through a bad eye infection and an abscess that burst under her right ear and is now thriving at 200grams. She is a very well behaved boy and is not fussy at all unless she is hungry (we all do right?.. lol).

Baby Mir is growing up so fast and we are enjoying each stage of her growth. From a dormant little thing, she is now walking albeit shakingly (we can’t help but laugh at him) and letting us know what she likes and what she doesn’t like. She loves sleeping under the blanket with daddy, listening to daddy playing the guitar and watching the mouse move as daddy checked out guitar centre, and she loves snuggling with me after a full bottle feed. Ahh such joy.

Here’s a picture of Baby Mir with the bottle (thanks GP!)
