Their final resting place outside of my window, near grandma's jasmine. The fragrance of jasmine wafts over them in the evenings.
The amigos now at rest together, used to play together as well.

Bujang went to the bridge today at 1120 am. He had been sick for some time and had suffered from IVD as well as the debilitating effects of buprenorphine. Even so, it was the suddenness of his going that made us all sad. He passed today of cardiac arrest. Goodbye my best cat Bujang. He was 19.

San has been chatting often with my vets as I had some issues with my medicines. But I think they have it all sorted out. Today I am seeing Dr L, my osteopath. I like him and he respects me. I am a senior cat and respect is important. I may not show san respect sometimes as I will bite her if she tries to give me medicines but she knows I love her.

On 2 February 2023, Bujang fell off the coffee table. He managed to jump up onto the couch so I assumed nothing serious had happened. In the early morning of the next day, he went into his litter bin and could not climb out of it. I helped him out but he lay on his side quietly and I knew it was time to go to hospital. In the same day, he got an MRI and the vets said there was no bleeding in his brain, nor tumors nor polyps. The hospital diagnosed an inflammation of the inner ear and sent him home with 3 weeks of antibiotics and 1 week's worth of pain medication the next day. Thier only instruction, "In a month if he doesn't improve, tell us."
Since I was not one to wait a month to see if he recovers his mobility from merely antibiotics, I went immediately to his own vet and discussed his meds and the advice given to us, which was 'monitor' his condition. Needless to say, that was not very helpful. So after 1.5 months of weekly visits to his vet to monitor medications or change medication, twice weekly visits to his acupuncturist to strengthen his legs and hips, visits to his osteopath and almost daily chats with his ac, he is now able to do many things by himself, walking being one of them and yelling another. Of cos he is still not strong and still walks unsteadily but this is a long way from him not even being able to turn over or stand. He still has a long way to go but things are looking up.

San said I am a very good Staff Nurse for my brother Bujang who has been unwell for 1.5 months. He fell off the coffee table because of an ear inflammation and is now learning to walk again. But I am a good helper and Bujang is now able to walk in the house quite well.
