Hi, new cat owner!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi, my name is Quek, and I'm from Malaysia (which is a country in South East Asia). Recently, a friend of mine, Albert, adopted this pregnant, stray cat (he named her Gabah) that happened to wander into his room. Soon enough, Gabah gave birth to a litter of 3 beautiful, baby, kittens (on the 5th of March). Unfortunately one of them did not manage to survive, I don't know whether it was due to my friend's ignorance, but, I guess that doesn't matter anymore.

Anyways, Albert had to leave the country for good, very very abruptly, due to some family problems, and he left me to tend for Gabah and the remaining 2 kittens, tentatively named Skinny and Fatso, for obvious reasons.

I found out about this site when I was trying to get some feedback on an eye problem that's affecting Skinny. I have a post on the issue here :

Oh yea, one more thing. I've never owned a pet before, so taking care of Gabah and her 2 kittens is a very new, and exciting experience!

I hope I get to know all of you soon!

Welcome Quek! Thank you for giving Mom and two babies a home

If you cannot see anything that might actually be in the kittens eye, then please try to find a way to get it to a vet. I have a cat that has a similar problem and the vet said that sometimes kittens are born with a herpes type virus that can cause this. The vet just gives me some eye drops and it clears up in a week's time. If it is conjunctivitis , it can be passed on to the other two . It could be that the kitten just got scratched on the eye by the mother or the other kitten which the vet should be able to help treat, too! Good Luck and let us know how how she is doing!

Welcome! Good luck with the new kitties. What part of Malaysia are you from? A good friend of mine is also from Malaysia and he's told me a lot about it and shared a lot of literature from Malaysian writers with me. I enjoy learning about other cultures.

Sorry for the late reply. Got caught up with college and stuff. I'm glad to report that both the kittens are happy and healthy. They're about 5 weeks old alraedy, and they're running everywhere! It can get tiring to keep up with them.

The smaller kitten (formerly known as Skinny) was renamed to Dash, but I haven't got a good name for Fatso. Anyways, thanks to everyone for the warm greetings! The people here are all very friendly, and helpful. One of you said that you guys would enjoy some pictures, so without further ado :


Dash and his mommy, Gabah


Dash


Fatso

Sorry if the pics are kinda fuzzy. I'll try to get some higher-res stuff for you guys. Nice to be part of the family!

It is so nice to have you! I did not need to know where Malaysia was because I have been there and I enjoyed it very much. We have other members here from Malaysia, just look in the upper right hand corner of posts and I am sure that you will soon find some.
