I called Dr MP this aftrenoon to discuss the possibility of chemo. She said she had spoken to her colleague about the case and as it stands we need to do a hematology test to see if Megat is a good candidate for chemo. If his FIV is not active, it would be possible to do the chemo. She would also speak with Dr FP about Megat's condition as they work closely together and as she herself is leaving the practice, she nees to ask Dr P if she would take the case. Dr FP had done Megat's first ultra sound and so she would know his case a little. Dr MP would update me about her discussion tomorrow.

Maybe I should get it san..what do you think?
Thanks Anoymous for the information about Milk thistle. I got this from a site http://www.petwellbeing.com/cat-liver-disease-p64.cfm
Milk Thistle for cats: Nature’s treatment for liver disease
Milk Thistle is a highly effective herbal remedy, well-known as an effective treatment for liver disease in cats, dogs and humans alike. It has no equivalent in conventional medicine.
The active ingredient in Feline Milk Thistle is called silymarin. It effectively:
- Prevents toxins from binding to the cat’s liver
- Helps the cat’s liver to regenerate
- Scavenges free radicals
- Stabilizes liver membranes
Milk Thistle also stimulates the production of new liver cells in cats, replacing damaged cells. It is an excellent restorative, any time your cat is ill. It supports her liver and helps her recovery. As an anti-oxidant, silymarin is even more effective than vitamin E.
Feline Milk Thistle helps combat the toxic side effects of drugs like:
- Chemotherapy drugs
- Chemical heartworm medications
An all natural, herbal product, feline milk thistle is safe for long-term use.
There were also reviews from pet owners who had found milk thistle to be effective for their cats. However, it seems the liquid form is better than the pill form. How do I go about getting some for Megat? Megat is getting fibre from pumpkin which also regulates his bowels.

I fink it is the best decision for the old aunty
Thanks for all the advice you gave about the incident that concerned the aunty. We decided that the old aunty should not at any time confront the man as she is always on her own and she goes about feeding the cats after everyone has gone home. So if he shouts, she should ignore him. Then we will all go to the police to make a report. We wish to thank st and all the help with the TC. The auntie is greatly relieved and knows that she has help when she needs it. The 4 from the wild bunch are of course clueless about the saga and all are well and fat. We now have 3 as from te original 4 - Minah, FatBoy and Putih. We have our sometime guests Billy Boy and now the gargoyle of a cat Lala. But Lala has since disappeared and Billy Boy does not come as often. He is a little thinner but not skinny so I think all is still well with him. He has either decided to hang out in his old precinct or maybe his owners have decided to sequester him, which would be better. Gargoyle Lala I am not sure about.

Totoro finding calm and comfort under my old cupboard...
Well the drama happened yesterday. The old auntie was harrassed by a man who told her he would 'sue' her if she feeds the kitties. He also asked her why she didn't just bring the kitties home instead of feeding them downstairs. To her credit, the auntie told him that she has been feeding the community cats for a long time and since she didn't litter and always picks up after herself, she didn't see why he should be upset.
The community cat downstairs would be Minah- a quiet and sweet-looking calico although she has a 'devilish' side as well. Sometimes FatBoy would come to dinner and breakfast downstairs as well as he is always hungry and has long decided to go where the food source is and not wait for the food to come to him:)
It ended with the auntie asking the man for his name and reason for him to be there. But the man just took her picture with Minah and left saying again that he would 'sue' her if she continues feeding. Of course she became quite anxious.
Since I was not able to feed the cats these last few weeks, it was Cousin R who had related this incident to me and I had told Cousin R to tell the auntie that no one can 'sue' her for anything and she was not going against any law of the land. Instead the residents should thank her as she would sometimes (and all of us would do this as well) pick up all the litter left behind by others as we are afraid the cats would eat something dangerous and get sick.
Of course I became rather anxious too and had asked ST if there were complaints about the cats around our set of 4 blocks and was greatly relieved to be told that there were no complaints at all. I had advised the auntie and had volunteeresd to bring the auntie to the police station to make a report as she was the one harassed by the man and would be able to tell the policeman what actually happened. She was greatly relieved as well as she is very fond of the 4 cats and all other sometime-guests that we have. However she told me that she would not want to make the report at this time. I do not want to make her more anxious but told her that the next time, we would all go to the police as we do not want anything to happen to her and the cats.
I hope that this was a one-time incident but we have decided to tell the other residents to look out for this man as well. The residents here are very fond of Minah as she is very pretty with a sweet voice and they are familiar with her. I think they would be on the lookout if they know that a total stranger has been around threatening an old woman and a harmless kitty. I do not think the man is a resident in this block as well.

We would like to wish our good friend who has been working long hours during these trying times of the flu to rest well and to recuperate under the watchful eye of Dowager Spencer :) She would make sure that all is well under her watch.
