Orphan kitties from a school: Iodine and Bromine

Update 8am 21 Aug: Bromine faded on Tuesday morning, cause of death Fading Kitten Syndrome. No sign of respiratory distress. Iodine faded at 1020pm. Same cause of death. CPR was administered.
| Bromine, tabby and white male; Iodine, black female |
Two 2-week-old orphaned newborns came to our foster home yesterday. Their mother is a feral cat around Temasek Secondary School and some humans separated her kittens from her, leaving them orphaned. There were three kittens at first, one has been fostered/adopted, and the remaining two are at ours now.

Their eyes haven't opened yet but their canines are starting to bud, which puts them at about close to 2 weeks old. They are drinking well, but having a touch of diarrhoea. Iodine is smaller in size and weaker, and we hope she pulls through and does not fade. Both of them are relatively healthy so far, if a bit hypothermic when first arrived.

Bromine, also with a milk moustache
They are currently on 2- to 4-hourly feeds of KMR milk with vitamins B, C, colostrum, CoQ10, probiotics, glucose. When they are healthy and on solid food, vet checked, they will be put available for adoption. For now, paws crossed for them!

Sunkist arrives at our foster home

On 23 July we received an email from Lydia, telling us about an abandoned kitten found in Marsiling. The kitten's eye was severely infected and she brought it to the vet.

Worried it might be flu', we advised Lydia to keep the kitten hospitalised until the infection was better because we fear there might be cross-contagion with Lenny, one of our foster kittens who is a chronic flu' carrier.

Sunkist was hospitalised for 2 weeks before he finally arrived at our foster home on Friday, at 14 weeks old. His eye is much better now but not completely healed yet. Being past 3 months old he is at a lower risk now of being spread the flu' by Lenny too.

Looking almost completely healed now!

The area where Sunkist was rescued in Marsiling has no unsterilised cats, so Sunkist is an abandoned kitten. Whether his eye was injured accidentally or he is a victim of abuse we are not certain. 

He is currently on topical eye medications which need to be applied three times a day until his eye is completely healed. It has some signs of redness still especially under the eyelids. He is also on supplements that help with mucous membrane health (mullein) and inflammation (tumeric, fish oil). We will be bringing him for his vaccination this coming week and after he gets well he will be available for adoption.

In the meantime, Lydia has posted Sunkist's medical bill on Cat Welfare Society. Do see if you can help defray the cost. Lydia is a caregiver of stray cats in Marsiling. Thank you.

#Pawcircle | Update on Calipod

Calipod is a stray cat that contracted cancer. She has a tumour in her cheek area and is now being cared for in our foster home until her time has come to go.


Calipod has a tumour on her cheek, affected her eye


She is currently on cyproheptadine to stimulate appetite and Tramadol for pain relief, as well as piroxicam which slows down the growth of the tumour. Unfortunately, despite this, the tumour has extended to her shoulder area. Tramadol is still sufficient for her pain management and she is coping well in spite of the tumour.

Having a warm bath. Tumour visible.

She is quite comfortable, and is still eating, albeit very little. She is happier now that she doesn't require regular injections too: our vet Dr Chong advised that if her eye cavity was bigger, the pus can flow out on its own, minimising swelling of the tumour. So we enlarged it and now Calipod doesn't need needles to get her eye cavity flushed, just direct from the saline vial. Likewise her ciprofloxacin antibiotic eye drops. Her stress level has gone down a lot since doing away with needles. We are going to get retinoic acid cream to apply topically on her tumour, starting tomorrow - we found out that it is good for Calipod's type of cancer, squamous cell carcinoma.

For supplements she is on very little because she doesn't like being fed them, and rejects a lot of supplements, especially herbal and TCM ones. Syringing her with the supplements instead of mixing it with food makes her very stressed out, so when she does eat canned food, she gets supplements care from that as we mix it in for her every wet food meal.

Her medical expenses are still minimal, owing to donations in kind and veterinary discounts. She has only spent $62.04 in total from the Stray Cat Fund. We will continue to tweet any updates on Calipod's health, just look out for the #pawcircle hashtag on Twitter.
