Look at me now...

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.

The Sky Report

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.

Just Because

 San says maybe we should have special first day of the month posts. I am quite well and am maintaining a good weight. My vet advised san to try to lessen my inhalers.  San was very pleased and now I only have to breathe the steroid only once a day.

A new week; A new bug

It was cold last night because of the rain. It had been raining non-stop during the Chinese New Year period and more beetles keep flying into my house. I decided to do my best to keep my house in order as san said she could not see the bugs without her glasses. Humans are pitiful that way. I also heard a little lizard walking in my kitchen this morning but san said that was for another day. She also told me the lizard could keep the other flying insects away but I think its best I take care of the bug problems in the house. After all, I am also called Little Warrior.

NO! not for me!

 Our 7 year old sofa finally gave way this morning. San was sitting on it and it collapsed. So we are now using Sister S sofa bed while we wait for our new sofa to arrive. But san had to protect it from cat fur and could only find her batik bedsheet for it. But it was way too much for me.

I asked san if I can cuddle with Tanaka and Bujang. San said I shouldn’t try that as they can get upset and slap me
 So I cuddled with her instead. We try to do this every night before I go to bed. I think it’s pretty good.

I helped san with the boxes in the storeroom. She didn’t know she had so many from last year’s spring cleaning. So I said perhaps they needed to go to recycling. She told me that it was a good idea and I was very helpful.

Where da plants san?

Our corridor yesterday

What our corridor usually looks like

Yesterday was a quiet Sunday with no birds outside. San had removed all the plants and put them away since our neighbours are moving and they have big furniture. San promised to put the plants back again in a few days. I should hope so! It was so boring without the birds and so hot as well without the plants to give us some shade.

Just Hanging

Yesterday afternoon mama came home early and we decided to just hang out together. She read her novel (she has 2 more to read from her self-imposed quota of 9 for last month). But I got very sleepy looking at her read and I took a nap with my eyes open and my head high. This was so she would think I was with her throughout as I like sitting with her in the bed.

Our last post of 2022

We hope for a more quiet life next year with blessings for all. This has not been a good year for us but we thank everyone who had visited us this year and gave us a lot of comfort. May all of you have a very good year ahead.
