This Sunday was cold and gloomy. The kitties spent much of the day sleeping on warm blankets. Popps on the other hand slept on her purple woolen bed sent to us by our good friends The Poupounette. She slept on it yesterday and much of today as well. She really loves the purple bed.
We were very excited when we got it as not many know us as The Amigos and so we suspected that it would be our good friends The Chans and we were right.

We begin our Sunday Thanks with Bujang. He is doing very well and had gone for SubQ at the vet on a weekly basis. I think the vet does it much faster and so he is less stressed. Of cos it would be better if we do it at home but it always takes a longer time and he gets easily upset. So for now he is on the Friday SubQ timetable at the vet's.
They are also doing well and had a quiet week for which I am grateful. Popp's face is still a little red but she is not itchy. I have taken her off raw chicken altogether and we may be able to keep her from needing her steroid shots for a little while longer although she may need it next week. The recommended protocol for the shots is 4 times a year only.
All in all our week has been uneventful, which is the way we like it and we give thanks for that.

Ms Akira relaxing with a guest on Hari Raya.
There are many things for which I should give thanks for and I have yet to do. It has been a long time since I have posted a Sunday Thanks post. It is time to begin our weekly thanks and gratitude post again. We will like to resume this by posting one about our kitty Ms Akira.
Ms Akira began her journey with us 11 years ago. She began fiery and bold but due to some trying circumstances she grew timid and lost a lot of the sparkle that she used to have about 8 years ago when we adopted our miracle cat Megat. They had a bloody fight and she retreated into herself. Then she began to overgrooming due to stress and loneliness.
It was only 4 years ago that she began a course of osteopathy to correct her spinal curvature from years of crouching and hiding. She also began acupuncture and TCM 1.5 years ago as well as Reiki and chakra rejuvenation. I also began a course of behaviour modification for her as well as Tanaka (who used to chase her for fun and boredom). We had given her conventional medication like steroids to help her grow her fur before.
It was therefore a breathtaking sight for us when she decided yesterday to sit with a guest to celebrate Hari Raya. This was the first time in 11 years that she had been with us that she actually did this!
Cousin R snapped several pictures quickly in case she ran off but she spent quite some time leaning against the leg of our guest.
So it is quite fitting that we begin our Sunday Thanks with our little girl Ms Akira and with gratitude and hope that at last she will come to herself again.
We would like to thank her TCM vet Dr Oh Soon Hock, her vet Dr Jean Paul Ly who sent her to her osteopath Dr Adrian Lalani, her Reiki friend Fern Kulpreechia, her Reiki and Chakra consultant Craig MacLennan at BlissfulLight, her furbrother Bujang who loves her unconditionally, her sisfur Popsicle Popps who taught her courage and of cos her nemesis turned brother Tanaka who came to see her as his sisfur in the end.

Fern gave the kitties Reiki yesterday and asked them about how they spent Hari Raya :)
He said he liked the festive seasons and he is happy and everything is great! He's also calm and relaxed. I praised him that he's a very good boy helping his Mummy to receive the guests. He showed me his joyful mode as he's walking around the house, looking after everything.
I asked her how did Hari Raya go? She said it's not as noisy or busy as she expected. So she's fine with it. She said she was just observing the people.
She said she was shy during Hari Raya and just wanted to keep to herself. I said she must have been adored by the visitors. She gave me more shyness. She showed me some sound and some images of lights.

Popps was not much bothered by the guests. She sat here and allowed them to talk to her and even touch her. When she got tired she turned around and showed them her back :)

We would like to wish our friends and visitors Selamat Hari Raya. Today is the last day of Ramadan. We are all wearing our Hari Raya collars except Bujang. He will wear his tonight as he has hosting duties tomorrow. Rez is in boarding as there would be many strangers in the house and it may frighten him. He will be back next Wednesday with us.
Fern: (Bujang) He also said he knows some special and important occasion is just around the corner and he knows there are gonna be visitors in the house. He likes to play a host like he always does!
Rezki : I told him about boarding and he said he would not feel safe if there are going to be a lot of strangers at your place, so he's okay to go boarding, no problem. He just emphasized that must pick him up after that (sounded a bit worried).

Tomorrow she is going for her ultra sound since her calcium is in the high range. The vet said that we have to see if she has cancer as that is the number one cause of a high calcium indicator. She is now resting but she won't be pleased when she is not given any breakfast tomorrow morning. We hope for the best and we need as many good thoughts as we can get.
UPDATE: the vet found nothing suspicious in anybody her organs. She was pleased that all her organs are as they should appear except her left kidney is a little smaller than her right. He said this was normal as kidneys have different functions. Her bladder though had echoes and he could see several spots but they could be just a blood clot or crystals. He said the antibiotic that Dr Tay had given her should help out in this case. He finally said he saw nothing alarming and there were no masses that could indicate cancer.

I have eaten some tuna and also Bujang's kibbles. Then I jumped up on the bed and sat here like this for some time. I think I was too full to move much.
The human gave me an orange bow as she said that it was difficult to photograph a black kitty.
