They knew they had to act quickly as they suspected she had cat flu and gum disease which is serious especially for an older cat. The volunteers were advised that this senior cat had not eaten for 3 days despite the security uncle, Ah Seng, pounding and mashing all her food for her. Despite poor living conditions in the factory, Ah Seng tries his best to give the cats and dogs the best possible care. Ah Seng is 70 years old and lives in the guard house 24/7. The cats and dogs are his family; they are all he has.
|Mouth full of ulcers|
On arrival at the vet, she mewed loudly from inside her carrier, obviously showing her disdain in not wanting to be caged up. The volunteers noticed she had mucous discharge from her nose.
|Obviously not too pleased with being manhandled. Grouchy but still cooperative|
|Drawing blood to run some tests|
|Mouth ulcers and pale gums|
As a result of her diagnosis, this senior cat needed to be warded for a few days and to be put on drip as well as she was slightly dehydrated. The vet wanted to treat her for all the ulcers in her mouth before returning her to the factory.
She has been kept in isolation, away from the other cats, and needs to be syringe fed by the staff. Despite all this, she is still alert and full of character, constantly mewing and making her presence felt.
She will be returned to Ah Seng when she has fully recovered.
