Pika2 and Brownie

Marilah bercerita pasal the new addition of anak bulus this year. Not so new la. One of them was dikutip on March 2014 and the other August 2014.

Kite start dengan Pika2 dulu la. On my way to work I use the AKLEH and from MRR2 I will need to lalu Petronas Ampang tu just before going up to AKLEH, so masa driving tu my eyes caught upon this kitten who is cowering beside the road. So I quickly turned onto Petronas and pick up the kitten set it beside the kedai Mesra stesyen Petronas. Then I head back to work.

I sometimes picked up kittens in the middle of the road ( because kittens are dumb and that is why you see a lot of kittens being run over ) and set it on the side of the road when I chance upon them while driving, but this one kinda sticks on my mind. I was feeling like I don't think so she can survive at the station. No one will gives it food and the station is right in the middle of a very congested and busy road. I am doubtful it will last a week.

So masa lunch time tu I made up my mind to take her to my home. I picked up an A4 box from the office so I have something to put her in while in the car. Went back to that petrol station and found her cowering underneath one of a parked car there. She looks so pitiful. I tried to grab her but she ran away to the drain, so one of the car wash guys came over and help me to pick her from the drain.

Put her in a box and I asked to stay quietly and not pee nor poop there. She decided to explore the car. Naseb baik tak membuang

So away we go. I set up one of the cat cage I have at home as any new cat as per usual have to be quarantine first to make sure any penyakit tak kena to the other cats. I have to set it as fast and as comfortable as I can make it, put up some food and water and off I went to work again.

Bobby sniffing the new arrival. 

She got some pretty bad case of mange (kurap) and skin issues. Actually up til now her skin is very sensitive. We got her to the vet and the vet gave ubat kurap orally. That is a relief that only the vet have to do it but if she is not better the meds will be administered again in 2 weeks time, so I have to take her to the vet up to 3 times before the kurap goes away.

Muka kesian. Telinga sangat berkerak. I wear gloves when I touched her. 

In daylight you can see her skin issues. Masa ni I baru mandikan die before going to the vet. Just so I could get the dirt off and kerak2 off her. I did the best I could with the condition I was in.

Ubat kurap administered orally. 

I have no idea what to call her. Kurap was already taken . Heh. But after about 2 or 3 weeks in the house I found her sitting contentedly on a Pikachu chair. So I called her Pika2.

Sitting there peacefully

while looking at Aziz. 

Right now she is quite healthy and had already been spayed. Masa spayed tu pon banyak songeh gak, sebab her stitches did not heal quite as nicely so it took longer than the other female cats I had. Naseb baik ade my husband to help apply her antibiotic cream. It took usually one or two weeks for my previous cats to be OK but her stitches needed 3 weeks to heal. Maybe its the vet, maybe I didn't take better care of her. But I am glad anyhow she did get better.

Looking much better now

At this time her fur looking quite nice, this week not so nice partly sebab I step on her then I think she overgroom that part I pijak jugak. Emo aje ko ni Pika. 

She is mostly quiet, don't like to go out much, prefer to be alone, though if she wants something she will stick by your side like glue. Selalu sangat kena pijak sebab she likes to be so close and quiet that we didnt notice she is there. Baru je minggu lepas I terpijak die sampai a huge chunk of her fur tercabut. Haha. Dahla die memang ade masalah with fur. She likes to overgroom herself and maybe there is some too much shedding going on. Also she pukes a lot that I grew quite tired of cleaning it. So we changed her food to Cat's Eye recently and after a few days no more puking! Her fur also seems to be improving somewhat. I think. I am still figuring that out, though she had stopped her overgrooming. Hope it will only get better. Tension aku tengok badan die ade part togel2.

Oh. Did I mention that right after I picked her up to my house, the next day tu I found out I was pregnant. Haha. Pening kepala nak handle problematic cats while pregnant. During those first days tu memang I wear gloves when I touched her and washed my hands regularly. And prayed that all will turn out ok. Actually that should be the practice. Always wash hands regularly people. Especially if you are exiting a public toilet. Euww much? 

Brownie entry into this house is not that dramatic. We just got back from raya and I can't remember what I was doing late at night, but all my cats are at their 'kandang' and I kept on hearing this persistent little mewing sounds. Sekali at my front door. This tiny kitten wants to come in because it is a rainy night and somewhat cold, and I think he wants some warmth. He was and is still the cutest little thing.

That first night we found him or rather he found us. Ko tengok la tahap kecomelan tu

We let him in for a while played with him because that seems like what it wants, then him outside again with some water and food. He was wearing a collar and a bell, and I thought it will go back to wherever he comes from. So day after day he is still there at our home and always frantic to go into the house. He wants to be an indoor cat with occasional playtime outside damnit!

Very the demanding

We asked around but nobody seems to know where he comes from dan almost put him up for adoption to one my friend but that fell through. Rupa-rupanye after about a month later we found out he came from right next door. Rupanye our next door neighbour ni baru je kutip die, but my neighbour the sort of people who put their cat outside. Die kate die kesian tengok kucing ni berkeliaran kat kedai mana tah so she picked him up and brought to her home. Haha. Kite orang tanye selang 4 5 6 rumah but didn't asked orang sebelah. We never thought it could be her sebab I thought I already know all her cats. Lupa pulak die pon in the habit of picking up strays ( but not exactly spaying and neutering them which kinda irks me ). Since she saw I kinda claimed Brownie as my own, she decided to let me keep it. Anak dia kata kira ni present untuk Aziz la. Haha. Ok la tu. He and Aziz seems ngam together pon. Husband memula nak push jugak suh I adopt him out but after Kurap died die malas nak push. I kinda like having Brownie around too.

And occasionally we found him asleep in the cutest of pose

He is not that much of a hassle. Cuma bile datang sini, cirit birit lama la. New cat adapting to new food tu biasa la, but Brownie ni lama sikit. Tapi2 lama I taw kenapa, sebab orang sebelah bagi die makan gak, so he have to adjust to that food too. Haha. Also at first I thought Brownie was a female kitten, tapi minggu ke minggu macam makin besar lak balls tu, so lepas tangkap gambar tunjuk kat my cat group in Whatsapp konfemla Brownie ni jate. Nasib baik nama kinda unisex. I named him Brownie tu pon sebab there was this female cat in instagram I follow who looks kinda like Brownie.

He is the cutest kitten dan sampai skang my niece masih menaruh harapan mommy die bagi die bela Brownie. Tapi selagi die tak setuju untuk scoop taik kucing no cat for her. Hehe. Brownie ni nakal and active dan suke gile duduk atas laptop. I can't do any work if I he is around sebab he likes to jump on the keyboard. Very active (typical kitten), go crazy when we are eating so eating time we have to kurung him for a while or he will shove his nose on your plate but sometimes can be very manja by jumping up and sleeping right next to you while we are watching tv. 

Bincang ape tah. 

Aziz tengah nak tujal2 kepala Brownie

Aziz likes to pick and manhandled him but he seems gentle enough with Aziz. Selalu gak kena reprimand Aziz. Budak kan, ape die taw, but also we need to be very stern if it looks like Aziz is hurting the cat. We are blessed with very gentle cats. The only cat yang tak gentle is Kurap, but Aziz knows to not mess with her then and she kept her distance with Aziz too. Rindu kat kucing Kurap gemok.

Bestnya ada kitties baru! My kids have been harping at me to go pick up new little kitties since ours are geriatric already. But how laaa...the new (temp) maid is not cat friendly (this is an understatement)...payah bawak diorg pi wet market...nampak kittens je nak kutip bawak only consolation is the traders at our pasar ramai yg sayang kucing. Selalu jumpa cat food/ fish in bowl for the strays.
