We are still stylish!
Having received many 'get well soon' and 'healing' purrs from bloggers all over the world, both Cinders and Tommy are much better.
EJ would like to thank all for those positive thoughts, prayers and vibes, and believes that it helped greatly to put these two on the road to recovery.
Cinders' urine is not bloody anymore but is straining to urine constantly and a little each time which means she probably has incontinence.
To make it easier for her to take her medicine instead of shoving the capsule down her throat, the powder from the capsule is mixed with wet food. With that strong fishy smell of wet food easily permeating throughout EJ's small house, all the other cats clamoured to have a part of it. There were times when EJ had to give the other cats the same wet food so that Cinders could have hers with 'hidden medication' in peace.
There is still another week of medication before evaluation of her progress on whether antibiotics and other medication is necessary.
This picture shows one of Tommy's scratch wounds below his ear clearly. The smaller ones are near his eyes and nose.
These wounds healed after being cleaned with antiseptic liquid and as soon as scabs formed, Tommy would scratch till it bled and the whole cycle starts again, at times creating an even bigger wound. Temporarily, steroid cream for these wounds have been stopped to prevent adverse results, so EJ has to be more diligent in monitoring and cleaning the wounds. EJ is happy that the wounds are now getting smaller.
Even in dire discomfort and itch, Tommy relax in style with paws crossed. Cinders lost a bit of weight and is resting well on the right. That furry butt below belongs to Pebble.
