Re: Mulan-Urgent

First of all thank you for your concern. I really appreciate it.
Mulan is slightly better. Still limping and fever on and off. The vet kindly called me today to inform me that he did some research and she could have a virus which affect joints and give fever. It takes up to two weeks for the kitten to recover. So let’s pray that it is what she gets and recovers anytime soon.
Thanks also to the care and dedication of Siew Ying who not only called us last night but came around today with Vitamins B and plenty of precious advices. She is just so amazing and touch everyone’s heart with her sincere love for cats and dogs.
Thanks again to everyone at Metta for your precious help.
God Bless you all


Agnes Meurzec For those who cared for Mulan and particularly Siew Ying: I took Mulan today to vet for vaccination and she was totally impressed about how ealthy and happy she looks. Whats adorable is her face and neck have not change or grew but her stomach is very round, so heavy that when she wants to climb she often falls because her backside is not following ha ha ha
So I am happy to say that Mulan is loved and well taken care.

Photo of Sunkist taken on 8th August 2009

From SY,
“Sometime early July, a female kitten was sent to the SPCA by a lady called Julia from Blk 4** AMK.

While Julia was at the counter, surrending the kitten, she realised that there were notices displayed at the reception area that stated that animals brought to the SPCA may be put down within 24 hours .

On second thoughts, she took a cab and brought the kitten home.

Thereafter Julia contacted me and told me the whole incident. I agreed to collect the kitten from her that night.

The kitten was very defensive and kept hissing so Julia used a Sunkist fruit box to “cage” her in. That’s why I named her Sunkist 🙂

That night I left the office after midnight, after dropping off my colleagues, and got to AMK just passed midnight. Sunkist was about 3-month-old then.

I asked Julia to pay for the vaccination and sterilisation. She did.

Sunkist is the one cleaning Jiu-Jiu‘s ears and face every now and then :)”

Agnes made a comment about your photo album “Mulan for Adoption”:

“Yes Mulan has a new “home sweet home”. She has 3 big brothers and 2 big sister plus a nice doggy to play with. She will be loved and loved and loved…..
I was also happy to meet the owner of Metta Cats. She is a lovely lady and needs all our support to help her in her blessed tasks of protecting our abandoned cats. She is an angel and deserve all the necessary support.
Cheers…. have to go play with Mulan ha ha ha”

“She will keep her name as we love it. She is quite confident and making herself at home. The others are not too sure what to think about this little one. As for Champagne dog he wants to kiss her and lick her which is not to her taste ha ha ha”

“Mulan spent her first night glued to my daughter. She clearly has a taste
for nice warm confortable bed ha ha ha however her other cat is not too
happy as she had to give up her bed. Well soon hopefully they will share the
bed and cuddles….”
