This site is dedicated to the cats that have choosen to share their lives with me, and the mischiefs they manage to get into everyday. But I still love them!

I am being very 废 today.
I woke at 9am. Slept from 12pm to 3.30pm, while it rained from 1.30pm onwards. Spencer joined me too. Kiki came at 12.30pm. Seeing that no one opened a can for him, he left.
I hope Mera is OK, with all the thunders booming. He hates thunders.
Hat appeared at 4pm, looking for afternoon tea. He gets upset just by looking at the cage previously occupied by Mera.
Mera is in medical trouble again.
He has been looking like an an-pan for a few days now, and the swelling makes his eye looks smaller. However, he still crunches plenty of biscuits.
Yesterday morning I finally decided to keep him indoors, in the cage. I gave him some antibiotics and anti inflammatory tablets, and applied ointment on the wound. He whimpered and begged to be let out, and groomed himself for many hours. After he realised that he would not be released, he sulked and pulled long faces.
Yesterday evening Sister J said she could help to bring Mera to the vet, so we rushed to the vet before the clinic closed. We were the last patient.
Mera was lucky enought to get his usual vet. The wound was looking greenish, and smelly too. Mera was purring, but I think he was feeling the pain. The vet shaved off some of the fur, and drained off the pus. Then Mera was given an injection, and the usual antibiotics ointment and tablets. The vet advised a cone. And to bring Mera back if the wound does not heal in one week.
Mera slept from 9pm to 4am, then he started to sing. And shredded the newspapers, toppled the biscuits and water bowls, bang against the cage.
I woke at 5.45am to feed him. He ate a bit, and sang again.
I locked him in Sister S's room with Spencer at 7am, and I heard him using the bins.
Then he sang somemore, until 9am, when Sister S released him by accident.
He asked for tummy rubs when I saw him at the garden. I gave him some biscuits. The wound seems better today.

Apparently Max had an asthma attack last night. He gets that sometimes. He is due for a shave on Thursday.
Spencer tried to wake me at 7.45am, by meowing very loudly.
Hat had his breakfast, and stayed in the house, under the sofa. At least he kept Spencer company. But of course dad thinks Spencer would much prefer handsome Mera.
Hat, looking alert after dinner. He was waiting for me at the staircase when I reached home. When Kiki joined us, Hat was a bit alarmed.
Mera was waiting at the void deck, as his dad was not back yet. I gave him some biscuits. His face is still swollen like a bun. Poor Mera. I bet he is having a throbbing headache now.

This is one GRUMPY looking tomcat.
Mera didn't appear this morning, I thought he was at home. Then I saw him in the garden at 3pm, so I brought him up for afternoon tea. Kiki was there too, so Mera was quite wary. He ate some biscuits though.
Then I noticed that his right side of the face is swollen. and I saw a big scratch on top of his eye.
Sigh. It must be courtesy of Hat yesterday. The vet told me whoever can inflict an eye wound is the stroner cat, because the opponent may be blinded.
Based on the amount of fur shed, and the wounds on Hat's tummy and neck, I gather Hat is also not much of a fighter. Maybe he just got lucky, and gave Mera a big claw on the eye.
Sigh. This Mera....
Kiki appeared at 2pm, for afternoon tea. He is napping now.
Spencer had breakfast, and was grumbling much. She napped from 12pm to 2pm, and she insisted on having some wet food at 4pm, before she settled down for a nap again.
Hat was here just before 10am, he is looking very dirty and worn. He had a good appetite though, 2 kinds of fish and 2 kinds of biscuits. He just kept hanging around while I did housework, until he had his fill.
The other kitties are OK. I fed Macky, KK and the weirdtom. The three of them are like the Three Meowketeers.
