Every day is a roller coaster for Mega. He had two blood trusfusion, persistent high fever and his pcv is also dropping. Subsequently he developed flu and gum problem which he could not eat. Pain relief is given. The clinic have done everything but it seems he did not improve. They suggested us to discharge him thus we board him for palliative medical boarding hoping for the best.
On 7/10, Mega has left us. Thank you everyone that helped.
Life as a stray has always been precarious. It’s a
careful balance of staying alive and staying out of trouble. One wrong
step, a stray finds itself in a life and death situation. Sadly, there
are still many cases that slip past us everyday.
we have Mega. He is an affectionate resident at a restricted Changi
area and all his life he’s only know that to be his home. Never
difficult to feed, always lovable but alas, he was forced to evacuate.
He was one of the lucky few that found a foster home quite quickly due
to his lovely temperament but that turned out to be a nightmare when he
escape out from the gate(cat proofed house) and fell from the corridor.
Mega had fractured his leg.
we went to the vet to fix the negligence. Very unnecessary indeed, but
we dont have time to look back as treating Mega is our top priority for
To fix his
fracture, a pin was inserted into his hind leg. Mega was on the mend and
we were most happy that he was going to be alright at the end of the
day. However, things took a turn for the worse that very same week.
pin was not accepted by Mega’s little and already weak body. The site
begun to turn red and soon, the pin pushed itself out of the body and it
was a great deal of trauma for little Mega. To make matters worse, the
vet was not available immediately to do the removal and there will be a
delay of 48 hours.
took a gamble and switched vets the same day. An X-ray confirmed our
suspicions (and worst nightmare) that the bone that the pin was suppose
to hold up, had splintered and he seems like suffering from a bone
infection. The placement of the pin was off. So we did an emergency
removal of the pin and Mega spiraled down to the rabbit hole.
we looked on anxiously, his blood count dropped to a dangerous 6% and
was at risk of dropping lower. He was listless, there wasn’t a sign of
life in his eyes. We knew the infection had got him and we were
wrestling with the grim reaper to get him back.
a quick round of discussion, blood transfusion was arranged. This
expensive procedure turned out to be the best one we made after
switching vets. His blood count rocketed from 6% to 22% and slowly, he
was regaining consciousness.
a FELV+ cat, Mega is not out from the woods, he’s at MP JG for close
monitoring and the plan is to fix the fracture with a plate so that he
can regain his mobility once he is stabilised. Estimated cost to be
around 5k. His caregivers cannot sustain his bills any longer and is
asking for contributions from public to help Mega.
is just a 8 months old kitten, the amount of mishaps were far too much
for one cat to experience. We would really like the community to band
together to help save this precious life.
Every bit counts, no amount is too little to save Mega.
Thank you for allowing us to be your workers to spread your love and kindness to this needy kitty.
