I HAVE A WEAK BLADDER

Jayson went back  to the vet again for more medications today. His leakage was still there though it had reduced quite a bit. Not sterilizing the house every hour seemed quite impossible for me daily. His leaks are still scattering everywhere he had parked himself. Well, according to the vets, it will take some time for the bladder to strengthen itself. More supplements, antibiotics and bladder inflammation pills had been given to him this time. It's indeed more stressful time for me to have to force feed him with all the pills. However, the vet's two super sized cats, Samson and Simba, did put a smile on my face. Gosh! I think that was exactly what they were talking through their actions. Their expressions were so real~ :)

IT GONNA BE ANOTHER HECTIC WEEK

Jayson has not stopped dripping all over the place and nothing I could do to make things better as the vet had said that it was due to his medications. One of the medications given was to relax his bladder to enable it to function better in the future. Well, it's real tough for me to clean up practically any hour of the day when he's awake and walking all over the house. In fact, it was also a frequent change of "bed sheets" for him as he alone would sleep on 4 different beds and having him soak in his urine was not a good idea either. Sweat~ I hope today would be better as yesterday was his last course on that medication. Less cleaning for me... I hope. His condition had improved a lot as his consumption of food and water now were super crazy. He's now the scavenger of the J Family Kitties, salvaging all the leftovers from the bowls of others. In no time, he'll be the next "Garfield" in the family.

Anyway, I'll be lying low for some time due to some personal family matters. I hope to be able to update on Jayson's conditions in due course. My Mum suddenly came down with UTI issues yesterday. Argh! I really hate that UTI. Luckily, an urgent SOS medication helped her soothe the discomfort. On the other hand my Dad is scheduled for an eye operation later today. It's going to be a hectic week for me, shuttling from house to house, taking care of the kitties, especially Jayson's remaining medications, getting ready with all the meals needed as well as getting all my work backlogs done. Phew! All the best Criz~ Sweat~

MY PIPE IS STILL DRIPPING

When I thought having Jayson home earlier, he would be in great hands without worrying more about outside threats. Well, he's for sure at peace, recuperating himself all along indoor. However, I'm the one still having that stress. Wherever Jayson would sit, there would surely be a pool of urine. He's still dripping beyond his control. I felt pity to cage him up as he should be free from that bad "caged" experiences. Unfortunately, I have to wipe clean my floor, mop and sanitize the whole house for the 12th time today. Since today is Sunday, he'll be sent back to the vet's tomorrow for another check up. Not only was his "pipe" oozing out urine regularly, both his hands were swollen from the IV tube insertions. Poor boy~ He's not going to like it at all.

HOME IN MY WARM BED AT LAST

Jayson finally got "kicked out" from the vet's about 2 hours ago. It was the worst cat case experiences in their service years. Sweat~ Well, to make matters worse, 2 out of 3 persons who tried to handle him during medication time today were injured. One with a deep scratch on the thumb and another with a deep bite on the finger. I guess we should send them some healing purrs for a speedy recovery although their treatments  might have been added into the high medical bill. Hmmm... I wonder. What amazed me was how tame he was to let me bathe his super stinky body without even screaming for help. He just stood there quietly to let me scrub his whole body without any fuss... while giving me that cosmic eyes of gratitude. It was a touching sight.

Eventually after the warm bath, he immediately dried himself off and straight went into his clean warm basket for a nice rest. His trauma was over at last and now he can sleep soundly without any disturbances from the barking dogs in the darkness.

JAYSONHOME02

It was a horrifying experience for Jayson during these 5 days at the vet's. Now he can just laze himself anywhere he wanted without worrying about being "tortured". It was hell indeed for him (so were the vets) but he was given the second chance to live on. Let's hope he'll make the best out of his life by being the wonderful cat I have in the family.

JAYSONHOME03

Thank you everyone for your support, well wishes and prayers during my stressful period. It helps... Jayson is now healthily alive. :)

JAYSON IS NOT MAKING OUR LIVES EASIER

Another day at the vet's showed havoc. Jayson desperately wanted to go home. This was the second time in a row that he diligently opened his wire cage to try to escape from the vet's place. Luckily the vets were not idiots either. They left his cage in a bigger aluminum cage house. However, he added another item in my vet bill today... a badly punctured IV tube to free himself. Yesterday, he pulled out the inserted catheter and needed to go through the whole operation procedure again to insert it back and today this new addition. What else is he planning to add in the bill next? Grrr... I just wonder how I could calm him down to finish off the treatment so that he could come home faster. Anyway, after a good wash up today, he managed to get some food into his stomach. Phew~ at least he was willing to eat some of the food i brought in yesterday. If everything would go well later without more havoc from him biting anything else, the vets would allow me to bring him home after he finishes a new bag of drip tomorrow. They said that his stress won't help him much over there and I would also think so.

THE VIOLENCE NEVER ENDS

Another visit to the vet this morning was not a pleasant one too. I brought Jayson's favorite food along to try to convince him to eat was not fruitful. All he did was to have a sniff. That's all! Haiz~ His temper was up to the max. He got violent even with me around to calm him down. I just don't understand how could a quiet and violent-free boy of mine could have ended up this way. I guessed it could be the trauma he had for being so seriously sick and admitted at the vet's for the first time. Whoever got near him has to be real careful of having their hands too near him.

 JAYSONVET05 

What I hated most was his swiftness. Before I could warn the vets that there was a danger of him biting off the catheter, he pulled the whole 6" tube out from his "ahem" within second! Gosh! Let's hope he would not require that in him again or there would be a second operation charges for sedating him and inserting back the tube. Bad Jayson! He's not helping me here at all with a tight budget. Moreover, I just gave the vet a call and he's still not eating anything yet. :( It could also be due to some signs of inflammation in his mouth. Luckily all his medications are done by injections. If not I would have expected more scars on the vets and helpers. I do hope to hear more news from the vets this evening.

JAYSONVET06 

I'm actually in a very solemn mood now as I just found out this evening that my jointly adopted and handicapped cat, Panther, had gone over the rainbow bridge barely 12 hours after Jimmy's sudden death. After numerous visits to a few vets for second opinions, he died in the arms of my very supportive friend after being hard hit by a seizure from the old nerves related complications. I guessed my friend, even in sorrow, had to keep this news from me for putting me into more emotional stresses. I'm going to miss that chubby furry ball now. Rest in peace Panther... we gonna miss that cuteness in your face now.

I WILL BITE YOU IF YOU COME NEAR ME

A visit to the vet today shocked me! I can't recognize Jayson much as he was in a totally worn out and dirty stage. He got rather agitated with the vets and they almost got themselves wounded. He refused to be touched. He refused to be cleaned up and worst of all, he refused to eat. Even I could not convince him to put something into his empty stomach. Luckily, he was on drip or he won't have withstood the hunger for so many days. I just don't understand what could gone wrong with his temper. It was as if he were another cat in the wild. He wasn't that wild in actions before. Moreover, he smelled like someone bathe him in a sewage tank! Gosh! Let's hope he calm down and get cleaned up as he would be hospitalized for another 5 days or more. Ka-ching~ Ka-ching~ Sweat~ 

JAYSONVET03

At least, his kidneys and bladder are performing better now with the visible endless streams of urine. I really hated seeing this familiar catheter procedure in him. I can see the pain he had in his eyes. Haiz~ What a suffering! :(

 JAYSONVET04 

Janice also paid a visit to see how his brother was getting on. Well, she sure don't like the smell at the vet's. However, Jayson indeed felt a bit more at ease now having his sister around. His mood did switch to a brighter side but that did not make him want to eat too. I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow for better news.

I DO NOT WANT TO BE PLUGGED

Another confirmed case of FLUTD~ Grrrr~ Luckily I spotted the problem fast or I would be hard hit by another heartache moment. These bad luck streaks are beginning to get into my nerves. Even planning to take him to the vet at the earliest possible time was tough as my car had decided to "die" on me this morning. Jayson's visit to the vet was delayed by 2 hours after the mechanic came to fix the problem. He only got to visit the vet at 10.30am. At least now Jayson is safely in the hands of the caring vets. By now, he would have gone through the operation procedures of inserting a catheter into his "ahem". Let's hope the vets are successful in draining out all the toxic in his bladder and get him back in top shape. I also hope he would get something into that hungry tummy of his as he has not been eating since dinner last night. I'm still waiting for the call from the vets now with good news that he has passed the critical level. I'll be praying real hard these few days for his speedy recovery. I can't afford to lose another cat as these 2 weeks has been real stressful to me... 

JAYSONVET01

UPDATE 6.15pm: The vets managed to flush out Jayson's urine from his bladder. The test results on the urine was not really good but at a safe level. Lucky I got him there fast. He has some crystal build-ups as well as traces of blood in it. Moreover, both his kidneys had swollen up. He's now on drip with the necessary antibiotics to speed up his recovery, some pain killers and some B Complex to boost his appetite. I hope I can see him the first thing in the morning looking better... Still praying that he won't have to suffer so much pain~

NOT THE LAST MALE IN MY J FAMILY KITTIES PLEASE

It has been a devastating few weeks with Johann stolen and Jimmy's passing away and now this? Why has God been so harsh on me again? Is He trying to wipe out the last male in my loving furry family? When I thought Jayson was behaving weird screaming nightly since the night of Jimmy's wake but I might be wrong. The scary "F" word was slowly lurking into the lives of the J Family Kitties again. The familiar "standing" pose was back! Can't the veterinary world find a solution to these FLUTD issues once and for all? It hurts me a lot having to see Jayson going through this process again. I need peace... I need help... I need lots of prayers to release me from this insanity that had hard hit me recently...

TOUCHING MOMENTS AT THE WAKE

It has been a week since Jimmy had gone away from my life and it still hurt a lot. Tonight right on the dot at 11.01pm, I had a wake where he took his last breath. It was a touching moment seeing all the J Family Kitties, namely Mama Jessica, Janice and Jayson, bowing down in respect for the last time. My tears almost wet my shirt. Of course, I had to make his favorite chicken dishes, Chicken Pie and Fried Chicken Wings. I'm beginning to miss his cries, "Daddy, please give me more chicken please." It's something that I have to endure in silence for years to come. Although the trio got restless after the wake with nonstop of cries, the house got super quiet now.

I missed that pair of eyes now...

JIMMYRIP

Though he has gone, I can still feel his presence yet so near…
He was everything that assembled how I feel, I see and I hear…
Now that his spirit is free from any suffering on any physical part…
It would now be the best for him to remain alive forever in my heart…
