Life for Nine

Update posted by Samantha Erica Yap On Mar 10, 2020

I want to thank everyone who donated for and shared Nine’s cause. Nine, now renamed as JAW, is in the good hands of the Island Rescue Organization. Further rehabilitation and treatment will still be needed. 🥺

  • Nine was discharged today.
  • The doctor gave last updates that they fed the cat and we could see that it could not totally swallow the food so that’s why it would drool out. It just needs to be wiped after feeding.

Nine Pick-Up at the Vet

  • Then, they did a last cleaning up and placed the cat in the carrier.

  • We had to pay the outstanding balance of 3,802 pesos. The total amount is 6,802 pesos. The deposit of 3,000 pesos was made at the beginning when the cat was first admitted.


  • This is the breakdown of how we paid for Nine’s hospitalization fees:
    • Donations (so far) - 1,662 pesos
    • Me - 2,550 pesos
    • Borrowed money - 2,590 pesos
    • TOTAL = 6,802 pesos
  • This is the breakdown of how we paid for Nine’s other needs:
    • Crate - 980 pesos (borrowed money)
    • Singen Recovery (food) - 340 pesos (borrowed money; The receipt for this was not given and I forgot to ask for it so I’ll just pay back this borrowed money myself.)
    • Nutriplus Gel (We decided not to buy because we already have one for our dog so we’ll just use that.)

  • Nine needs to be back by March 12 for a follow-up check-up to monitor the jaw and eyes.

Nine is in a relatively stable condition and ready for discharge. The right eye is no longer responsive. And it’s mandible is still not working. It has to be fed by hand. According to the vet, the food is placed on its tongue and it swallows the food.

I plan to get Nine tomorrow and foster it for a while. We can’t keep Nine ourselves so I contacted some animal rescue organizations for help on this.

The vet noted that Nine’s right eye was no longer responsive to stimuli. The right side of its face was still swollen. They can’t confirm anything yet until the swelling goes down.

Nine’s mandible could move slightly and they would feed it small amounts of food. And the vet mentioned that it did it’s best to try to eat even though it may have hurt.

Though this is a small bit of progress compared to its condition yesterday, it’s still not ready for a head x-ray. They still can’t determine how badly the damage was done to it’s head. They would have to wait until the swelling goes down or when it’s not as painful for Nine to undergo an x-ray.

Nine was still in slightly critical condition. The right side of its face was still swollen. The vet suspected that it’s mandible was severely damaged. It also started to nosebleed profusely. They needed to do an x-ray of its head but it wasn’t safe to do that yet. They were able to x-ray its body and found that there wasn’t any terrible damage in that area. They continued to provide it with antibiotics.
