Mysty Cat & Dog Calendar 2006

Discovered another news article on an animal lover project called Mysty Cat & Mysty Dog Calendars 2006. This is another animal welfare effort to raise funds to save abandoned animals.

Gosh, suddenly it sounds like we have lots of abandoned cats and dogs in Malaysia!

Fur mites & excessive grooming

We made it to the vet and Piper was definitely not very happy with the visit. The vet ran a blood test and watched a sample of her fur under a microscope. He did a check on those patches and explained that those are her own doings in the course of cleaning herself. As it turns out, she's suffering from some sensitivity from fur mites plus the effects of excessive grooming.

She got a dose of Frontline spray all over and in another 2 to 3 weeks I've gotta do it on her again. So do Prue and Phoebe; I suspect they would have them too but not suffering as badly as Piper.

Thank God there are no major complications. Phew!!!

Thanks too for you caring cats and moms out there, Piper sends her purrs.

Friends of Felix

This piece of news have been printed in several papers for a week now. Over 30 kitties are abandoned to live in debris with no one to care for and feed them. Hope the SPCA is garnering enough support from feline lovers out there to adopt them in the Friends of Felix project. The program starts on Nov 12 at SPCA.

Piper needs another vet opinion

Piper's been losing fur on both sides of her hind legs, tail and even around her tummy area. It's been more than 6 months and having seen 2 different vets, they seem to agree it's a hormonal problem.

She's obsessed with grooming herself and lately there're red patches on those areas which could be self injury or insect bites.

I'm planning to bring her to another vet for a 3rd opinion. If anyone else has seen something like this, please share your experience or rather your kittie's experience.
