I took a video of the tricycle ride but the quality is poor since I just used my nokia jurassic phone.
The other cats in the house were meowing loudly when I got home. I think they havent had their dinner yet. I fed them some kibbles before I left for town though. One of the new cats named Ingay, rushed to check out the carrier. Thumper didnt like him and hissed. She knew he was an impostor. Very true! Ingay has a collar and Im sure someone owns him. He just showed up one day ( a few weeks ago) in our house and was very assertive in demanding to be fed. Well I dont turn cats away and just fed the little bastard. So from then on Ingay has become a part of the family. He isnt allowed inside the room though. Squid, Maki, Glory, Pretty, Pepper and Ingay are only granted access to our living room and dining area. My brother told me that Pretty snuck in their room last night though, with her damn boyfriend. Slutty cat. So in total there are 10 cats in the house. Four lives in my room namely Thumper, Dapper, Enchong and Boomer.
|Thumper went under the bed right away when I opened her carrier|
|The first thing she did after her short stroll under the bed was to climb her scratch post. No help from me!|
|Enchong looking curiously at the "new" cat.|
|Thumper relaxing after her tour of the room.|
|I put a clean pillowcase on the bed to make her comfortable.|
|I think she was really tired. She dozed off again.|
The vet on duty recommended a dextrose solution that can be taken orally. This is in case Thumper still refuses to eat.

|250 ml water (already poured in the container with the solution)|

A little after midnight I heard some commotion outside the window. Ingay tried to climb the window by the side of my room. That crazy cat. I think he wanted to snoop on my female cats.
|I heard some noise and some rattling sound so I looked out the window|

Some of the videos I took of Thumper
Here she is cleaning herself
And here is my favorite, Thumper scratching my yoga mat. Along with her are her sisters Dapper and Boomer. Enchong is under the desk playing with one of his toys.
And lastly, here is the damn culprit that almost toasted my baby girl
|the power strip|
I have the Lord to thank and also people who have prayed and even donated forThumper's bill! Lastly, I think I need to thank Boomer, my blind cat.
You see, Boomer was supposed to have her surgery last February 10. However, she was refused again because according to the vet, she is still too small. Her surgery was postponed for another month.Her eye swelling has subsided and I just wipe her everyday and instill artificial tears. Ive stopped the antibiotics temporarily because her eyes arent having any purulent discharge as of the moment. Also the vet told me not to let her be dependent on antibiotics because the germs might become resistant to it. Anyway a month ago, some good people chipped in to shoulder half of the surgery bill. I have put away just enough money for the remaining half.
|Boomer's artificial tears|
Thumper got sick around Valentine's Day. I had to make a deposit at the clinic. Also, my store wasnt making enough money anymore and the cat food has run out. This is when I decided I had to borrow Boomer's money (technically it belongs to her). I promised I would give it back after I get my pay. I realized also that if Boomer's surgery pushed through, then I probably would have been really hurting for money because those daily trips to the vet was also draining my stash.
Things do happen for a reason. Although I was initially upset that they kept putting Boomer's surgery off, Im kinda glad that they did. Somehow this has saved me and Thumper. I didnt compromise my daily visits and I was able to afford to feed the other cats also.
So Thank you Boomer! I will make it up to you next month=) As for Thumper, Welcome Home Baby Girl!
