zzscats daily cat updates – Hunter Update & Ben’s Adorable Sleeping Pose

It’s Day 5 since Hunter arrived at our house. We are happy to report that on day 5 he is now fully adjusted and running around the house exploring and sleeping at ease.

While still keeping some distance from his roommates(Plato & Sesame), they have pretty much stopped hissing at each other if kept out of their personal space.

On a side note, check out ben’s sleeping pose today. Can it get any cuter?

And sweet pea.


zzscats daily cat update – Sweet Pea still at vet, day-3

I went to see Sweet Pea after work this evening and was told he was doing much better. But because he still had some difficulties passing the urine, the doctor put a temporary catheter in just to help him empty the bladder. He will remain at the vet for several more days 

When he was being taken out of the cage, Sweet Pea complained a bit. But as soon as he was in my arms, he started to purr and cuddle with me as usually. But before long, I felt something hot on my pants and then realized it’s Sweet Pea’s pee, lol. But it didn’t matter. The vet’s assistant was so kind and brought me a towel so sweet pea and sit on it on my laps. And we cuddled for another 30 minutes until the vet office is closed. Sweet Pea never had the patience to cuddle with me for such a long time. And I think this is at least something I can do for him these days…

zzscats daily cat update — Sweet Pea is hospitalized

Our sweet cuddly eight and half years old Sweet Pea has been hospitalized since yesterday. We first found him having difficulty urinating late Monday night. He would go and sit in the litter box for minutes, trying to pee but later came out with no urine clumps in the box. We thought Sweet Pea had the common urinary tract infection and syringed him some parsley water, an effective home remedy for UTI. But later on during the day, Li found Sweet Pea in much discomfort and began to try to urinate in many odd places inside the house. So he took Sweet Pea to the nearby house, and was told that he was completely blocked and had a super full bladder. Sweet Pea was lucky because he was brought in early when the condition is still treatable. A ruptured bladder is unimaginable… 

We went to see Sweet Pea this evening (Wednesday) after 24 hours he was admitted to the vet. But when we got there, the girl at the front desk told us that the doctor was actually working on him because the catheter was blocked! Thankfully the procedure didn’t take long and we were able to see Sweet Pea in just a few minutes. 

Our big boy was lying on the table while we were talking to the doctor. But soon he reached his paws to me and I realized he wanted to cuddle with me. So I picked him up and sat on a nearby chair so we can cuddle, just like what we usually do at home. Sweet Pea was obviously happy to see us. He was purring, kneading and drooling on me. We cuddled for about 20 minutes, the longest we’ve cuddled, until the vet office is closing. We were lucky because Sweet Pea was diagnosed of struvite stone, a more treatable form of stone and he was diagnosed early. He will remain in the vet for a few more days until is condition is stable. It was hard to say good-bye to those eyes but we know he is in good hands. 

Daily cat — Dali

Dali is one of the community cats we feed in our backyard. He appeared around house four years ago already with tipped ears. He wasn’t afraid of people to begin with, and has grown more and more like a house cat. Every night when we come back, he will almost always show up in the front, curl up and demand belly rubs. 

Daily Cats — the gang

So we skipped yesterday’s daily cat posting… what a shame to do this on a second day of daily posting! But to make it up, here are three photos of Sweet Pea, Fluffy and Benjamin, in their best weekend napping poses!

Cross-eyed Siamese Cat Benjamin turns 7

Our dearest Benjamin turns 7 this month. We do not know his exact birthday as he was rescued when he was around 2 months old by a friend of C.A.T.S. in 2008. We were lucky to become his family. We gave him the name Benjamin because he looked like a serious old man when he was a kitten, just like Benjamin Button depicted by Brat Pitt in the movie. Following please enjoy some pictures of our Ben over the years. We love you Ben!
