I left the house past 12pm and had lunch first at Jollibee. I walked again from the Cathedral all the way to the clinic. It was vert hot but I didnt want to waste my 20pesos on a tricycle for that short distance. Besides, I also had fun sightseeing. I even ran into two familiar people. One was Cesar the vet assistant, he was riding a bike. He said he was going to buy lunch. Then I ran into Jess, the agent that tops up my phone loading business. He was surprised to see me that time of day in town. I told him I was visiting my cat in the clinic. He seem amused by my story. I told him I may not be able to tend the store for a few days because I have to look after Thumper. He also warned me not to use my phone in that area because a lot of thieves hang out by that area of the road where we were chatting. Ironically though he was holding two handphones and was texting when he pulled over to talk to me. Silly guy.
While walking I saw this mobile store with something cute and furry hanging out on one of its shelves:

|store with something extra! 2 cute kitties!|
|Thumper @ 1PM today|

One of the animals from yesterday's visit was back. Ruba the pregnant Shih Tzu had persistent fever and pus was coming out of her nipples. She was confined today. Believe it or not but the woman who brought her stayed there until around 6PM then another woman showed up to visit Ruba and 2 men came over also to look after her when the two women left. In total, 4 people came by to visit her on her first day of confinement.They really love that Dog! In fact the guy who came by around 7PM today said that the owner of the dog wants him to stay for the night. He didnt want to and was relieved when I told him its not allowed anyway. WTH? that dog is spoiled!

The next woman who visited that dog was equally loud, inconsiderate and they kept poking their fingers to check on Thumper. I had to tell them to stop it and I shushed them because they were being too noisy already. They were turning the clinic into some wet market meeting place. Fuck! If my cat could talk she would probably say the GTFO Fat Bitches Im sleeping! They were very very annoying. I know they loved their dog but I also love my cat and Im not trying to cause anyone any inconvenience. Their presence was overkill. I even joked that they should have brought the dog to Unciano Hospital (its a hospital for people) instead so they can stay overnight to look after it. They laughed, but I was actually sarcastic=)
Other interesting characters on today's visit were the following:
|this puppy has been confined for a few days also. it was crapping blood|
|they put some tube on this dachsund's ass. they called it "labatiba"|
|Reeva the Belgian shepherd|
|Gypsy the dalmatian|
This time they turned on the tv set too. although I dont really care too much about tv, since it was on, I checked out whatever was playing. I was able to watch an episode of 4 different drama anthologies. I hated all the crying of course but I was a little amused by the variety of stories. I watched Sabel, Juanita Banana, I love you so (korean telenovela) and Malparida (an Argentine telenovela) . Im not a fan of drama series as such but I got curious after watching these episodes. I think I want to watch this one in particular. hehehe
And again it was time to go home. At 8pm I had to kiss and tuck my baby in. Although she was asleep for most of the day, she is too weak to do anything right now. It was so difficult for me to see her helpless and almost lifeless like that. I miss coming home to my baby girls and finding all of them huddled by the door waiting for me. Now its one cat short..

I uploaded some videos using both my phone and camera.
This video was taken at 113PM. Thumper's oxygen was temporarily removed because they were cooking something in the kitchen and it was near the sick bay area where the animals are.
This video was taken at 156PM. Thumper still not wearing an oxygen mask
This video was taken at 206pm. Finally, Thumper has the oxygen mask hooked up.
This video was taken around 6PM while we were watching the news. Quality is not too good. Used my nokia phone for this one.
This video was taken around 7PM. The dog wailing in the background was Gypsy the dalmatian.
This video was taken around 740 PM while we were watching a basketball game. Notice how Thumper raises her hindleg when I stroked her belly.
I am still hopeful that my cat will recover..Im aware that after being confined for 5 days, she seems to have not improved at all. In fact, she was fine until the second day. Her condition seem to have worsened since Wednesday afternoon. Miracles do happen sometimes.
Tomorrow I will be going back to the clinic again. I wont get tired doing this until she gets well. Im just worried though that I might not be able to afford her fees....God will provide. He always does.
I feel sad that Im also neglecting my other cats at home. I fed the 3 cats in the room and also the 5 cats downstairs before I left for town today. When I got home around 9pm, it turns out that no one fed them for the evening. So I had to open a can of sardines. I also had to cook more food for the cats and dogs breakfast later. Now Im really very exhausted.
Its going to be another long day tomorrow. Time for me to rest. Im excited to see my Thumper again later..
Hang in there baby girl!
