Romeo from a void deck in Pasir Ris, healing up from a fight wound

A well-loved community cat from Pasir Ris got himself bitten under his tail, and worried all his human friends when the wound festered and got infected. They brought him to the vet for treatment, where he stayed for two days.

Romeo

His infected bite wound under the tail

The vet had advised them that his wound would need daily cleaning and topical medication, and he would need to finish a course of antibiotics. If the wound didn't heal up well, he would need surgery to close it. The residents who brought him to the vet couldn't find a way to foster him while he needed this rehabilitation time. Thus Romeo came to us when we had space freed up.

When he first came to us
Lounging on our couch
Romeo is a sweet boy, and responded well to medication and treatment from day one.

Getting his wound cleaned
After he finished his antibiotics our vet examined his wound and found that he wouldn't need surgery to stitch the wound close; as you can see from the above photo, there is almost no more raw skin left! It is now a mere abrasion, and he can soon go home to his void deck and meet all his beloved humans again!

Looking forward
It hasn't been all that wonderful for him staying with us to recover, he misses his freedom, looks out the window grilles wistfully, wants to walkabout and get lots of physical affection. We hope to get him back home as soon as possible! Cheer him on on our updates on the cats through our social media channels - links below.

Pretty Momo from Farrer Road - her story

| Momo currently recuperating with us |
Momo first started attracting unwanted attention by a condo management in Farrer Road, where she had then been unsterilised, finding boyfriends in the condo grounds, and giving birth within. She has since been sterilised, abandoned her boyfriends in the condo, preferring to hang out at a safer location outside the condo's perimeter. She was sterilised with a microchip under one of our volunteers' names.

Recently she was discovered limping by a resident in the area, who then called SPCA. Because of her stray cat microchip, our volunteer's name came up and was contacted by Cat Welfare Society. Momo was bailed out by our volunteer and brought to us to recuperate from her leg injury since we had the space.

Our vet prescribed cage rest and stretches for her, as it was not an injury that needed surgery or a splint. She however also came with a slight flu' and needed medication for it. She came to us on 5 June, and just completed medication for her flu'; her sneezing and nasal discharge are gone.

We need to check that she can walk properly now, and thereafter she can return to her favourite spot.

Momo being comfortable back home
You may recall that a litter of kittens was rescued from the same locale - yes, she is the mother of Leo, Lennon, Laney and Louie.

Help us help other cats like Momo and family, through becoming a monthly Boarding Fund giver. Through a budgeted recurring gift from you every month, deducted automatically by your bank, we can ensure the cats that need a temporary home have one with us where they can receive the rehabilitation they need. Young kittens without a mother can find foster parents in our volunteers till they are trained and rehomed. Injured kitties can receive care and rest till they are well enough to go back to the streets. Sick kitties with serious illness can have a final resting place where their physical and emotional welfare will be taken care of.

About a sick kitty found in a drain and soaked with rain

This is Scarlett's story as we know it, and her journey with us receiving the medical care she needs.

Scarlett was found in Chip Bee Gardens. A resident there heard about a cat sitting in the drain, soaked through after a few days of rain. The feeder in that area didn't recognise her, so she might have been abandoned there, we won't know for sure. She was brought to the vet and found to be hypothermic, apart from other things.

When first sighted in the drain
En route to the vet
She was found to have kidney failure and would need subcutaneous fluids daily. She was hospitalised for 4 days. When she was ready to be discharged, she came to us.

Then we realised Scarlett is blind. Dilated pupils, unable to see someone approaching her. We were initially applying topical medication for her eyes because her first vet diagnosed eye ulceration. After Scarlett saw our vet, it turns out she has no eye ulcers but it is indeed blind. We stopped her topical eye drops.

Kidney failure cats often have high blood pressure / hypertension, which leads to blindness that is usually irreversible. We got her blood pressure tested and it was indeed very high. The standard medication for kidney problems is Fortekor which is also good for hypertension, so she needed to only be on Fortekor. We started her on it straightaway.

Giving Scarlett her fluids and meds are so easy because she is such an agreeable cat. However, she gets easily stressed out because of her high blood pressure. Her heart sometimes beats very fast, and just today, she had very heavy breathing and needed oxygen.

She will rest at our cattery to get her treatment and care necessary. Follow Scarlett's journey with us on social media!

[Adopt] Freckles, kitty rescued from Seletar Farmway (where there are lots of stray dogs!)

We got an appeal for help for fostering Freckles from a couple who found her along Seletar Farmway. That road has a lot of wild stray dogs, and Freckles was the only cat in the area. We are unsure if she was dumped there, but it was a very dangerous place for her to be in.

Freckles when she was found

Unfortunately, they were unable to foster her because of space issues and asked us for help, while in the meantime they kept her in a pet carrier. It was very uncomfortable for Freckles, and stressful for the rescuers.

We normally don't take in kittens that are too old, and Freckles was already 3 months old in the picture. But because the rescuers had nowhere else to house her away from the situation, and the place she was found was really dangerous, we made an exception with Freckles. They in the meantime got her vaccinated and vet checked. She was docile at first, but owing to her already past the ideal socialisation age, and because she began having teething discomfort not long after, she started to be more aggressive towards her rescuers not long after. When she first came to Love Kuching, she was all fierce and unfriendly.

A week later, we managed to break the ice with her. She enjoys cuddling with humans and playing with other kittens (after she makes sure she has her say!) now that she realised she likes companionship.

Freckles now, now 4 months old

She really likes her foster brothers, and plays as rough as they do.

Turmeric: "This Freckles be cray-cray!"
"Am not scared of you! I am the Kitten King!"
"Wait - this. THIS is our real enemy! This noodly thing!"

Then she has her sweet girly side to help her get away with mischief. With a pretty face no one can say no to.

She still maintains some of her old quirks. She definitely hates dogs after being where she was from. She still needs to be told not to use her mouth to nip people, especially now that she is teething - kittens' adult teeth start growing out between 4 and 6 months of age. She may be cuddly on your tummy and sweet that way but is still a feisty girl. Sure to reign in any household!

She has been vaccinated, vet-checked and is litter-trained. Currently 4 months of age. To adopt Freckles, see right side bar under 'How to adopt' or click here.
