Maomao not happy vetvet pokepoke her today :p #catlife #maolife

A photo posted by Andy Heng (@asliceofheng) on


Today was the 3rd visit to the vet, where Mao underwent “fluid therapy”, and an additional Hartmanns Solution and Vitamin B12 injection. She really dislikes being poked with a hugeasslong needle - as would any human being, I suspect - where liquids are physically injected into her skin, as the vet had found her to be extremely “dry”. Silly girl has not been drinking enough, alas.

Vet has suggested that we inject her ourselves, possibly to save on costs, and when queried “how long do we do this?”, he’s answer was “long term”, which understood is to the day she passes … understandable as we have currently chosen not to euthanize our Mao.

And less the 10-minutes we are done, and a cab ride home later, we spent less than a hour out, and the silly girl is ravenous for the canned “Hills Canine A/D” food! Funnily enough, once I opened the cage (where we carried her in), she came out and went to meow at me for food - which either proves the liquid inject works, or that she is smart enough to know gong to the vet - while painpain - also meant yummy food! And she nom-ed on the canned food immediately when I opened it up LOL

Silly girl … meowing so tenderly these days, and both mum and I are able to pet her comfortably, whereas in the past she would immediately snap at us, for the past decade too! Diva cat! Silly cat… xoxoxoxox

Every Monday we have a "caretaker" that comes into our house, to do the vacuuming, mopping of floors, and general cleaning duties. And for a long time, Mao constantly hides away, totally out of sight, which we all assume is her fear of the sound of the vacuum cleaning machine's din when switched on and used.

For the past few weeks, Mao no longer hides, and could be seen perched in her sofa spot, staring at the caretaker auntie's movements - eyes wide open and alert! The past couple of weeks, Mao has turned quite nonchalant to her existence.

Today, Mum carried her (lying in her carton box) to the sofa, to be raised from the floor as auntie mops it ... the cat probably did not like the idea, and jumped down from the sofa, as weak as she is ... not too long after, when the cleaning begun, Mao probably senses the need to be on a raised surface, and came back to the sofa, where Mum carried her back up, and where she slept for the entire day!

It was only until the evening time, when Cindy returned, and whole we ate dinner, did she wobbly jumped off the sofa, and casually walked back to her box in the kitchen.

Time now is 12:13AM on a Tuesday morning, and Mao has decided to sleep in the bathroom, lying on the bare ceramic tiles ... not flinching as I pet her head, but not focusing as much either, choosing to literally looking away ... I think she is in pain, but she does not "meow" about it ... Mao is a strong cat, although sometimes a scaredy cat, but stubborn in her ways, and stoic in her decisions. I don't know what to do for her, except sayang her, before leaving her alone in her spot.

"Why can't you leave me to my enjoyment, human?" #maolife #catlife

Truth be told, I've since long forgo receiving any words of gratitude for my efforts - be it online or offline - but having the silly girl choose to sleep in the box I made her, leaves me with an overwhelming sense of achievement and that comforts me more than anything I'd imagine, actually. I've always felt "actions speak louder than words" and have tried to live my life as such, although ironically the past few years had been a constant struggle to be able to stab by such a notion with my constant lack of physical and financial ability, but this is what "life" has dealt me, and I will continue to life thru them, and relish whatever little joys that greet me - like seein the cat in a box this Sunday afternoon :) #maolife #catlife #henglife

Her appetite ah, aiyoh! Constantly hungry, will eat almost anything but not necessarily finish everything ... as sickly as this silly girl is, she is also picky on what she eats, so there's no way to pull a quick one over her LOL

This is the second visit to the vet this week, to give her a 5-minute IV Drip (which cost over $25 this visit), which is frankly doing her wonders. The vet had commented earlier during her first visit (on Wednesday) that she was "dry", and that we were to return every other 2 days to give her the IV Drip treatment.

She had been pretty grumpy this trip tho. Growling endlessly, very unhappy indeed. She even pissed the table top where she was out on for her IV Drip treatment. No doubt scared as well, but it was a 5-minuter and off we go!

I've haven't been able to grab her, as I have physical problem with bending down on my knees, so Mum has been catching her since Wed, without issue ... but today, since she's gotten a bit feistier and more energy, she nearly bit mum too! Looks like next Monday/Tuesday's IV session might be a challenge :(

She seems to be more awake, and as well energy level higher ever so slightly, and am getting her appetite back, quite ravenously so too! Must be the canned liver food / feed gotten from the vets! Regretted I did not getting more cans (two cans lasted 2-3 days only, oh gosh the hungry girl!).
