BULAN has left us. and this is forever.

I have noted that many have been visiting us this past few days.  And I'm sorry that I'm not ready to talk.  He's gone. and I'm not used to saying that yet.

Dear m.q.,
BULAN is ok now.  and eternally, he will be ok.

Dear nadyazgal,
he did respond to treatment, but..... guess it was time.

Dear Kak lia,
thanks for your support kak. Nana dpt rs akak faham

Dear Meowwmania,
I think he is all healthy over there.

Dear Crystal,
I think you've heard the news and perhaps the story too. thanks, dear.

Dear si tEDI,
I think, now, dia akan sihat selama2nya..

Dear lupie,
thanks. *sigh* what more can I say. I knew prognosis was poor to grave.  Actually, grave, but I believe the vet made it sound better by adding 'poor' to it.  I suppose I was hopping for a miracle, but didn't want to say it out.  unfortunately miracles don't work that way.

Dear Blackie,
yups, the reality that i'm still trying to live in.  the news that I have yet gathered enough strength to spread, what more to talk about it.

thanks to those who have been supportive and understanding.  I'll be updating when I'm ready.

But to those, who are here to tell me that, 'he was just a cat'.  YOU CAN GET OUT OF HERE, BECAUSE YOU'RE JUST A HUMAN AND I DON'T MIND LOSING YOU FROM MY LIFE!

slap me and tell me this is not real!

UNFORTUNATELY, this is for real :(

it's a matter of days, before we are scheduled to fly off when THIS happens.

BULAN's blood test result showed that he is suffering some kidney insufficiency.  It's quite a story that I haven't been able to share.  I'll do so when things cool down a bit.  Moreover I'm not in the best emotional state to find proper words to put together on here.

now, BULAN has been hospitalized.  His result came out today and he went in today itself.  the next blood test is in 3 days.  and I'll have to see his condition before deciding whether he should fly off with us or not.  I'm waiting to find out how he's responding to treatment and what the prognosis is.

I've cried enough over the result of the blood test, I've cried over having to leave him on his own there.  Now I'm crying over uncertainty.  How will he respond to treatment? what is the prognosis? will I have to leave him behind?  of course I'll come back from him, but how long will it take? and I wouldn't be able to be here for him.  this is driving me crazy.  I have to keep distracting myself if I don't wanna end up spending the whole day crying.

We got a cage of this size 75" x 35" x 60". (not the actual pic) heee.. the cage will be assembled once we reach home. can't wait to see how it looks like, and how my cats will fit into it.

a small size cage, this is for drying the cats after their bath (which reminds me to go on a hunt for a pet dryer).

BELLA and DONNA spayed :)

My 6th & 7th cat sent for spaying/neutering.  I'm no longer as anxious as I used to be about it, hence I could send 2 of them at one go =).

2 more cats to go.  I've got to decide when to do it.  I have 2 males to go SUNNY & MJ.  and our traveling date is just around the corner.

Is one week (exactly one week) enuf for the recovery?

Frontline COMBO Spot On vs. Frontline Spot On

Frontline COMBO Spot On (with green pipettes)
-contains: fipronil & s-methoprene.

-It is a broad spectrum insecticide that disrupts the insect's central nervous system.
-It is used in Frontline as topical flea and tick control.
-It kills adult fleas before they lay eggs (within 24 hours).
-It can be used as an insecticide that acts as a growth regulator.
-It does not kill adult insects.
-It mimicks natural juvenile hormone of insects, which must be absent for a pupa to become an adult.
-So, with the presence of methoprene (acting as juvenile hormone), pupa will not change to an adult, which breaks the life cycle of the insect.
So next time, we'll be sure to get Frontline COMBO Spot On Cat :)

**Nadyazgal, thanks =)

Update on the import permit

The permit is in my hand.  It is a 'Veterinary License to Import Birds and Animals'.  It is one license that cost RM11, and within it are the details and microchip numbers of my cats. Weeeeeee....We're so near to getting everything done =)

**It reached me over a week ago, it's just that I had been busy with work and the cats =)
