Selayang In His New Home

Picked up Selayang at 11:00am this morning. He had become afraid and gave me a small hiss when I opened the door of the cage to put him into his carrier. However, after I took him to Jimmy's and we fed him with Snappy Tom's whitemeat tuna with salmon flakes, he allowed me to pat his head and stroke him again. 

He has been prescribed antibiotics for a week, and has to have his eye checked and stitches removed next Saturday.

Yum-yum....enjoying his whitemeat tuna with salmon flakes

Still gobbling away......

Pausing to pose for a photo.......

P/S: Selayang is NOT for adoption.....sorry.

Selayang is looking much better now! :)

Err, Selayang's food plate is exactly like my camping food plate! Same colour as well.
Glad he's at Jimmy's. Am wondering why the vet didn't use the dissolving ones for stitches.
May drop by for a quick visit if time and weather permit.

hehehe is is so cute with that thing around the neck to prevent him from scratching right? :)

thanks to angela. Selayang is a sweet temperament cat, and I'm just so happy for him that he doesn't have to go hungry and be exposed to the elements anymore.

oops...that might have been jimmy or angela's's a bowl in the kitchen by the sink, hahaha.

I'm sure the vet has their own reasons for not using dissolving stitches. I remember that time when I called Dr Prem to enquire about the cost of neutering Blackie, he also required Blackie to return in a week's time to remove the stitches.

That thing around Selayang's neck is called the E-collar, short for Elizabeth Collar. Yes, it's used to prevent Selayang from scratching his eye.

Oh, he definitely will be fatter after a month or so at Jimmy's. All their rescued cats put on weight after some time there.

Aw, this is a sweet story.
I'm glad he has a good home now with you :)

Blackie Bond said...

Ahh....Brad, he's not with me, but with my friend. She is the one who volunteered to take him in if I could catch him and take him to a vet for treatment. :)
