Kiki's update - 22 June

Kiki's right leg's been amputated yesterday. The nurse updated me that the he's gotten back his appetite today and he's been such a good boy! Medicating him is a bliss, she said. "He'd open his mouth big big when you medicate him! He's very cooperative!" He'd be warded till his wounds are completely healed, then we'd have to board him at a cat shelter till he gets adopted. The vet bill till today is $1107. Funds gathered so far: $1307

Thank you everyone, for the funds and most importantly, the encouragement all of you had given.

Our hope right now is to find a good home for Kiki. Please do spread the word again. Trust me... he's a good home cat to keep, despite being 3-legged.

Kiki's Update on 16 June

Kiki's left leg is recovering slowly but his right leg is very swollen and had stiffened. If the condition worsens, we might have to get the right leg amputated. Meanwhile, during these few days, Kiki is under observation... they will try to flex his muscles, and hopefully, it'll loosen up abit for better recovery.

Will update again this week.

Kiki aka Lego - Victim of irresponsible pet ownership

Kiki, a 1.5 years old male Tabby was 1st seen by a caregiver from Holland Village, wearing a collar, roaming the void decks in early 2007. Concerned, she asked around for the identity of the owner. Turns out to be a 13 year old girl.... whose mother had probably picked up a stray kitten back then to keep her daughter company.... just like a toy. Kiki is a sweet but timid boy. He dodges people yet want to come near, yearning the affection which he was
deprived of. He was unsterilised, and free to roam.

After much convincing from the caregiver, they agreed to pay HALF the sterilisation fees.

However, they were still unable to keep Kiki indoor. He went missing for 1 week after sterilisation...

Kiki was found on the 7 June with parts of his skin and flesh from the hind legs ripped off, and rotting away. God knows what happened to him during his disappearance. Perhaps, it was a car accident? Perhaps not. He was probably too hungry when he gathered enough strength to come out for food when the feeder was feeding on 7th June 2007. However his injury was serious. Kiki was then rushed to the vet. While putting him into the carrier, some parts of his flesh fell off.

According to the vet, Kiki needs at least a month or even 2, to recover.. Many parts of his skin and flesh were ripped.

The "owner" is unable to afford his medical bills and had suggested to put Kiki to sleep.

Kiki is a strong cat, he's not sick or paralysed, there is no reason to put him down. The caregiver is appealling for help to save him and to move him off the streets and the harsh environment. We need contributions to pay Kiki's vet fees which is going to be hefty.

KiKi, has been renamed "Lego" at the clinic.
