Tanaka doing his thing...
Tanaka went out with the boys this morning to celebrate the last day of 2007. The video is rather blurry as its from my hp. I hope you guys can see him running for his life :) The last day of the year! I really have to keep track of my time!
(never mind the fluffy tail)
Ms Akira has commandeered new premises for herself. I am glad to say she has not vomitted anymore apart from the one incident last week but we are keeping an eye on her. She is more sociable after the Bach Flowers and would actually come out of her sanctuary to mingle with the family (from a safe distance) but still she will make the decision to be in the living room when everyone is out. If Tanaka is out, she will be on top of her cage...away from the craziness :)
Tanaka's adoption Hope #01 will not go through. I had asked one of my friends who has 2 cats if she would adopt him. She told me once that her children were keen for the family to adopt another cat. However she worried that her senior cat Siren (now about 10) would be upset and the other cat Cho (now 5) would not be pleased. It seemed that Siren was quite upset when the family brought Cho into the house. She tried to find another family to adopt Tanaka but the mother in that family was not willing to do that. So I guess Tanaka will stay with us for a bit.
Cousin R was telling me that there might be another family that might adopt him. It seemed that Family X has an adult male cat who is very fierce and so they felt it would not be good for both the cats. Then it seemed a few weeks ago, a little cat adopted the family. They actually found the cat in front of their doorstep (a victim of abandonement?) and took him in. But he was sick so they sent him to the vet. It seemed that the little kitty was suffering from anaemia. After a week, the vet told them it was okie to bring the little guy home. Their older cat (to their surprise) did not protest! But then disaster struck and they woke up one morning to find the kitty dead and foaming at the mouth!!! They did not take the cat to the vet to see what had happened though. We guessed something else must be wrong with the kitty apart from the anaemia. :(
Cousin R said she would ask the family if they would consider Tanaka. Grandma worries about the foaming at the mouth episode but I do not think its the family's fault as they have a healthy adult cat in their house. We are now waiting for some news.
But I guess if there is none, I would post again at the cws site after all the festivities are over.
Only Grandma loves me...
Ms Akira is not getting used to the routine of taking both her meds with good grace. She hacks and tries to spit the liquid and has to be tricked :)) into taking her pills. I am sorry to say this morning, she threw up a soild mass of dry food :(. But she takes her canned food very well. We will have to see how the rest of the days will go. But after her meds, she still talks to me so at least I am not her mortal enemy...yet.
I think Bujang feels left out of the whole kitty and meds business. I could see the surprise in his round eyes when he watched Cousin R or grandma and I feeding Toro with the feeding tubes. So we have been making a great fuss of him and hide-and-seek is the favourite game in our household now, except only Bujang and I know how to play this game. Toro usually would give my position away to Bujang so I always lose, much to Bujang's delight. I know we can stop the game when he wins at least 2 out of 3 times. :)
