I know Thumper is a cat, but I wont say just a cat. I love her like a real baby and Ive had her for 2 years. We have been through tough times too in Singapore. I cant help but worry about her for the past few days since I could not be there for her all the time. I had to go home too to my other cats.
Today I feel better though. I was able to eat more and also relax a bit.
The reason is that my Thumper has gotten better and its best news Ive heard this week. She is more alert and didnt even need an oxygen mask today. She was also able to sleep better and would respond to me like she used to do when she wasnt sick. I wanted to bring her home but its not time yet. After seeing the improvement I saw today, I thought it would be best to give the vet clinic also another chance to redeem itself. Yesterday I was pretty upset because its been the 3rd day since Thumper had been dyspneic but they have not come up with any diagnosis. Worse, they had not done an xray. Well at least today the doctor was able to offer an explanation why they had to observe her first before they randomly just did any diagnostics. They had another branch at Cainta which was 15 - 20 minutes away and they did the xray there. According to the vet and the assistant, they were surprised that Thumper was putting up a fight! She struggled while they were doing the xray on her. She lost of course but she made sure to let them know how she felt about it.
When they got back from Cainta, it was clear that my baby girl was really back!
|After they removed the top part of the carrier, my baby was "excited" to see me! She was meowing too!|
I just petted her and let her relax. This time I could tell she was sleeping well and not because she was just too weak to do anything. She still hasnt regained her appetite but when I made her smell the kibble, she was licking her nonexistent lips. I think thats a good sign! Tomorrow Ill bring wet food again and water with dropper. Today I gave her some water and she licked it but she didnt really like it too much.
Most of the photos I took was of her sleeping. She really looked peaceful unlike yesterday.
|Brushy brushy time!|
|Look at that hindleg go up|
I also brushed her today and you can tell right away that she was enjoying it. Here are some videos of Thumper resting, getting brushed and having a nightmare!
Took some photos of the other animals in the clinic today:
|Dog named Jejemon|
|Jjejemon getting an antibiotic shot. He wasnt confined. They just gave him some wound cleaning and antibiotic. He was ran over by a car but miraculously survived.|
|Trixie. she was confined for a few days now. Tomorrow she might be discharged|
|Other dogs in confinement. The one on the left arrived today. The one on top, I dont remember his name. The dalmatian is Gypsy.|
|Poor sick doggies. The belgian shepherd is Reeva, The black lab I dont know his name but he was barking loudly when he saw me. There were three other dogs on the far right corner. I think Trixie is there, also the chihuahua with skin lesions. Cesar the assistant called him Poknat.|
|There were 11 animals in confinement. Thumper was the only cat.|
|Ruba the Shihtzu|
|A pug with a tumor|
|the vet signed this one just to make sure it would look legit although this is only temporary because an official receipt and bill will be issued once Thumper is about to be discharged.|

I spent only 3 hours with Thumper today. I will be back tomorrow though with goodies. I hope she is in the mood for wetfood.
Better yet I hope she is in the mood to go home with me. Her sister Dapper also misses her a lot.
