Felicia

I put down a cat today. It wasn't my cat. It was a stray cat that a forumer found. He took it to the vet and posted for anyone to take over the care as he couldn't support it anymore. I went down to the vet's. The cat was very very affectionate. Even though it must have been suffering with the long list of problems it is suffering from. Her rescuer named her Felicia. I wanted to help. But in the end I couldn't. She was suffering from some neural problems, her head is tilted and she walks around in circles. She was dehydrated and had a very bloated stomach. She also is yellow, sign of jaundice. The diagnostic tests itself would cost more than a thousand dollars. Her condition will require surgery to her brain, which will cost somemore. She also require treatment for her possible liver problem. Not to mention the fip possibility. :(

So after discussion with her rescuer, we decided to let her go. I only knew Felicia for the last hr of her life... but, she had already endear herself to us.

Rest in peace Felicia darling. May you be in a happy place now free from suffering. I am so sorry I couldn't do much except accompany you in your final journey. Say hi for me to my darling Feodora at Rainbow Bridge,ya! Remember that you are loved. Will miss your loving spirit.

Winter Wonderland Cat show aftermath

Had a very very long day at cat show yesterday. Doll Doll was BEST CAT IN PREMIERSHIP!!!! The little queen was interviewed on Suria too! Haha... Our new girl Hermies did us proud. She did lose to her sister, but her calm and friendly nature at the show indicates many more shows to come.

Had a really good time chatting with viv, viv's dad, bast and ernie.

Will try to be more ready for next show. New show curtains, perhaps!

Long Live the Queen

Just went to M&Ms to extend Cuppy's stay. My mum aka the Queen, has decided to stay long. Cohen kindly offered to take in my mum for boarding so that Cuppy can go home. Well well... hahaha.... reluctantly I have to decline. Haha... just joking mum! just in case you are reading! :P

Visited cuppy. He looks ok. A bit sad when I leave. He didn't even want to chew his raw hide bone... :( poor boy. He must be feeling lonely and thinking that this 'camping' trip is too long. Sigh... Good news is, Cohen said he is walking quite well with him. This saturday will be my turn to try. hee...

Really looking forward to weekend. Cuppy can have a good run then. No rains hopefully.

Cuppy is going for Obedience training

That's IT! I am sending cuppy for obedience training. I have asked my sister to send him for ages. Even offer to pay and ferry them to the trainings, she and her bf still procrastinate. Now that she is happily in US, I am stuck here with a super strong and NOT TRAINED dog.

I was told Cuppy was vaccinated early this year. I went down to Mt Pleasant at Sunset Way to collect a duplicate copy of the cert since they lost the original. I was told his last vaccination was 16 Nov. I confidently told the nurse 'No Lah! early this year. can you check again?' she printed out for me and YES! IT's 16th NOV 2006! *(&@%^*#*) i called my sister in Buffalo... she verified, ya, last nov.. DAMN DAMN DAMN. the clinic takes last walk in at 4pm. It was 315pm and I was there Cuppy-less. I drove home down Ulu Pandan at 90km/h. Pissed and driving like an angry woman. Opened the door, leashed a desperately happy Cuppy and drove at 90km/h back to clinic. The clinic was empty when I left it at 315. when i go back at 330, it was filled!!!! I am not joking. in the 15 min that i was away, 8-10 people arrived at the clinic, all with small dogs or cats. Cuppy was mad with joy! the dog owners instinctively shield their dogs from cuppy. I couldn't hold on to him in my heels. Luckily the staff at the clinic helped me. 3 strong men. that's the number of pple requred to hold him down. I am pissed because

  1. I was there with Cuppy just last week. If I had been informed that he has not been vaccinated, I could do it at the same time, and not waste another trip.
  2. Cuppy is a VERY VERY strong dog. It's not his fault for jumping on every single person or dog. He is just happy but doesn't know how to express it in an acceptable doggie fashion. It's the owners' fault for not training him since young. And I HAVE BEEN OFFERING AND OFFERING TO PAY AND CHAUFFER YOU THERE!!!!!! You just need to be there with cuppy.

If my sister is reading this, I do love Cuppy very much. He is a very nice dog. BUT, I HAVE MY OWN WORK OBLIGATIONS AND MY OWN BABIES TOO!!!!!!

This time, I am sending him for behaviour training. I WILL SEE TO IT PERSONNALLY! And this time as a punishment, it's NOT FREE! You better pay me back when you come back. I hope it will help you learn to be responsible for your own dog.

Regards,

From a VERY ANGRY sister

p/s: a very very sincere thanks to all the staff at mt pleasant sunset way. Thanks.

Random quote

Samuel Butler said: The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but will make a fool of himself too.

Introductions

Finally... after close to a month, Honey Cuppy and Spartan are getting along fine. Honey is the alpha dog, followed by cuppy and lastly spartan.

It's quite funny to watch. Cuppy will actually wait for honey to eat first. the size of his head is enough to push honey away, but he will only eat when honey walks off. If he trys to steal a bite or two, honey will snap at his face and he will run off and watch from a distance! My little honey dominates over big Cuppy! Way to go girl! hahaha... it was quite sweet to watch when cuppy protected the 2 CHH at the west coast dog run last sunday. some other dogs were happily chasing them around. Honey was getting a bit irritated and started growling. And that is the cue for cuppy to the rescue. He playfully chase all the 'invaders' away! aww....

Introduction to the cats went ok. The cats want nothing to do with cuppy. Everywhere cuppy goes, cats scatter... well... no fur is lost... i assume that is alright. It will be ages (if that day ever comes) before I can let cuppy and the cats be together unattended...

2 long years


Tomorrow, it would have been 2 whole years since Feodora passed away.

Time heals all wounds, but the wounds heal so slowly.

I can talk about her now casually without crying. But writing this post brings back such raw pain that I cannot really explain. In a way, I do want to move on. I have my other babies to love, but a part of me does not want to let go. I don't want to forget her. I wonder where she is now. I wonder if the Rainbow bridge really exists. I miss her so much. Her soft fur, her gentle purr, her playful growl, her cute chirps...

If only I have the chance to spend another day with her... I will tell her how much I love her.. and how much she is missed.

Work... doesn't matter. If only... ...

PS3 vs Fuzzy Babies

Just spent a bomb grooming my car. Cuppy peed on my car seat on the way to the dog run last thursday. I could have bought myself that PlayStation 3 many times over now, with all those money that I spend replacing chewed cushion, grooming the 'Dirtiest Lady Driven Car' as my trusty car groomer would say, and replacing my mom's chewed slippers....

Well... but the PS 3 will not wait patiently at the door for me to come back home everyday, and be so desperately happy to see me. Haha...

Ok... PS3 0: Fuzzy Babies 1

Tiring morning at West Coast park dog run

Bring cuppy+honey+spartan out at the same time is not easy. Thanks to my hubby who volunteered to go with me.

Cuppy was running around the house with a ball in his mouth, the squeaky kind of ball. I was like... ya ya, i get it. dog run.

The moment he was released from his leash, he was like a prisoner given his freedom. He ran and ran and ran. There was a lady with a french bulldog, and a guy with his cocker spaniel. It rained quite heavily this morning, so the ground was really muddy. The dogs had a hell of a good time. Before long, they were all brown and caked with mud. Cuppy even lay down in the middle of a puddle. ULTIMATE GROSSNESS!

But seeing them run about so happily, i can't help joining in the fun. I ran like a crazy woman on the field, with 5 dogs racing with me. It was muddy, but fun! Super fun! that's a dog's life.

I am really exhausted right now. Cuppy is still full of energy. Oh well!!!!! Honey and cuppy are still not best of friends. They can tolerate each other, but the comfort distance is around 30 cm. Any closer, they will start barking!!!! hope things will be better soon.

Life is so fragile

There are so many what-ifs in my head now.

Last weekend, MS and I brought Cuppy in for a blood transfusion for a dog named Candy. Due to some complications, the blood wasn't taken. But Cuppy is to be on standby.

This morning... I received another call. This time it's really urgent. I told my boss i need to take urgent leave and rushed out of the office. Just when I was stepping into the lift, I received another call. Candy had passed on...

I frozed. I didn't even speak much when her owner called to inform me of the bad news. My brains just hanged.

What if Cuppy had been there earlier, would the ending have been different?

All these reminded me of Feodora. All those days spent waiting at the vets, not sure what is going to happen, whether she can make it through... It will be 2 years.. coming nov 29. The pain is still so raw... i know how candy's owners must be feeling right now. But, there's nothing I can do to help.:(

I feel so lost now. Life is so fragile.
My heart goes out to Candy's owners.. God Bless.

Cuppy

It was a nightmare come true. Someone complained about Cuppy, and he will have to move. WITHIN 1 WEEK! :(

And I have to be the bad person, to take him away from the person he loves most (MS).
To be continued... ...

Lots of thanks to Vivian and Anderson for extending their much needed help at such a stressful time. Hugs.

Grieving... still

Does the sadness ever go away?

Been clearing my computer of old files... and came across some pictures of Feodora.. which I have even forgotten I have taken.

I really miss my baby girl... wonder where she is now? and how she is doing...
and going through the photos.. the tears roll down again..

Memories of our happy time together, memories of her falling sick.. memories of her at the operation theatre.. memories of collecting her urn from the vet's...

The good memories are bitter sweet, but the bad memories.. they are still so raw... i could still remember the helpless look on her face when she was on the drip.. the cries of pain she made when the nurse tried in vain to take blood from her paw...

Why does my little baby have to go through all these pain?

Cats... the misunderstood souls

Why do so many people 'hate' cats, without even touching one, or even interacting with one?
