Last few weeks, our human felt pressured and was exhausted.
Pebble was really not doing well. She could not eat or drink and had to be on assisted feeding.
Today, this morning, Pebble wailed loud and clear.
She was hungry even after her 'syringed' breakfast of mashed kibble gruel.
Our human brought out a cupful of kibbles, shaking it to let Pebble hear and dropped it noisily on to her stainless steel bowl. Pebble wobbled unsteadily towards that noise, dropped her nose awkwardly on to the kibbles and attempted to eat. She tried and tried. She was at it for a long time. Kibbles were thrown all over the floor. Our human was happy!
This photo shows that Pebble was unfazed by the camera flash and stared unblinking into it which proves she is absolutely blind. Her little cardboard cave has just been changed to a newer one.
PS: Don't you love her cute colourful diapers?

It was a hot afternoon.
To cool the Meowyard for the kitties, EJ walked in to wet-mop the tiled floor and spied tiny droplets on Winnie's muzzle furs who was resting nonchalantly.
Wanting to share this cute moment, you should have seen how EJ moved stealthily out of the Meowyard but once in the house proper the mad dash to grab the camera.
Could these droplets be her saliva after a satisfying sneeze or water splashed from the drinking bowl?

This is how Pebble looks after a DIY bad hair cut in her rear (see red arrow) with a tiny scissors by our human. It makes cleaning a lot easier after she soil her diapers.
Pebble is wearing diapers on a permanent basis and confined to her personal suite at all times for her safety.
Last week she underwent a thorough check-up, blood tests as well as radiography on her chest and abdomen. All results were fine except that she is completely blind. So the conclusion that her attacks of paralysis and seizure were due to neurological disorders.
Our 16-year-old matriarch, Tanya, too, was down last week with an infected bladder. Still on medication, she has recovered and back to her haughty self.
PS: Kenggy has passed on.

Hi everyone, says Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK on behalf of all us!
We would like to thank all of you who constantly thought of us and wished us well.
Pebble has not been well lately and is still on medication for her bad gum problems. Lately she had some attacks of paralysis. Our human is observing and making daily records on the frequency and seriousness of the attack.
To make Pebble less messy and more comfortable, our human decided two days ago to let her wear diapers. Now Pebble spend the nights in her private suite and days with her roommates in the meowyard.
