Wan-Wan at the vet

At Metta Cats/Dogs Shelter:

Last night, Siew Ying sent Wan-Wan to the vet as “she suddenly got up but right side tilted to one side. Once straightened, she could walk.
I thought she would pass on in her sleep.
Xrays done showed no fracture or dislocation. Likely another stroke. She is being monitored at the vet.”


1st October 2015 update: Wan-Wan can be discharged from the vet clinic today. Acupuncture is recommended to help in regaining her physical function affected by yet another stroke.
Fund is needed for the acupuncture sessions which aided her recovery in her 2014 stroke.

Wan-Wan’s 12th post-stroke acupuncture therapy

Kitsch Kids Workshop is proud to present the METTA 2016 Calendar

Each calendar costs only $10 if you buy 5 or more.
For 1-4 pieces, each calendar costs $15.

We thank you in advance for your support!

Update on Kiara


Story of Kiara:

Update from Caroline on Kiara who has migrated to the UK:

“Kiara is very happy and healthy. I’ve just taken out pet insurance in preparation for her more senior years.
She takes it in turns each night to sleep in my bed or my daughters bed. She will lick all your toes if you have bare feet (especially if she catches you sitting in the toilet!) If she climbs onto your chest while you’re trying to sleep that means she’s hungry. Like today…”
“And she will just stare into your face like that until you give in and feed her.”

“The first time I tried to take a ‘selfie’ with her sitting on my chest like that – I accidentally dropped my phone on her head! She was not amused but it didn’t stop her from doing it again.”
