So, here I am again,filling in, for Mama just couldnt bring herself to string a few sentences to oblige her daughter's plead to update this pitiful blog of hers.
I am not so well myself, to tell the truth. I think age is finally catching up with me. I got this dizzy spell quite regularly now, and it only happens post meals. When they, Mama and Adik , first saw me wobbled , has difficulty in righting myself and finally, fall over, they screamed and then, cried. Typical! They grabbed me, called me baby and hugged me so tight as if I was going to die there and then!!
After witnessing a few more episodes of my losing balances, though they are still very concern , they quit screaming, but they continue making lots and lots of fuss over it . Really, I cant understand these two. They call me fatty, lazy bum,sleepyhead and all sorts of degrading names ( none of which describes me ), but at a sight of me being well...just dizzy, they totally lost it!
Mama of course, googled away my condition and came up with the diagnosis of Feline Geriatric Vestibular Syndrome. Mouthful huh?( I especially detest the word geriatric, I'm not that old okay!) At least, its better than being labelled epileptic as she first presumed!
Well, I tried to tell her that I am okay and I dont have other symptoms that cats with that awful syndrome have, but to no avail. Not until she read and read and read and observed and observed and observed . At one point, she deduced that I eat too fast and scolded me, reminded me of eating ethic of an aristocat. Indeed, I only have these dizzy spell after having meals, never at other times. So, that rules out epilepsy, as well as that mouthful diagnosis! Adik is worse, she thought I am outrightly obese, my head is not in proportion with my body anymore, thus causing me to topple over during mealtimes sometimes!
Well, I'm lost for words to tell them that I just have vertigo like what Abah used to have. And it is far better than what Abah had as I dont vomit and it lasts only less than a minute. Plus, I could run as fast as usual right after. So, I just let them worry and the result is, I got more pampering!!
Nowadays, I enjoy extra tender loving care and more frequent treats of my favourite cans of sardines and salmons. Hmmm...didnt I always tell you that there's a silver lining in every cloud?
Anywaysss...enough about me ( though I know all of you wants more and more of me,right? And oh, for those of you who wonders, rest assured that I still look as good and fluffy and cute as before).
As for Abang and Adik, they are well and doing fine with their respective studies. Abang is still in syahadah class and hoping to graduate by the end of this year. Adik is preparing for her PT3 which will take place soon...and she grumbles a lot about being made guinea pigs.
They went for umrah for the second time in late February as a long overdue promised gift for Abang for having successfully committed 30 juzuks of the holy Quran to memory. The journey was postponed before because of our late Moktok being sick. It was a joyous and meaningful occasion for them both as they now understand deeper of the spiritual sides of the journey compared to their first umrah. Abang got to fulfill his dream of reciting the whole of the Quran in front of the Kaabah while Adik said doing tahajjud infront of the Kaabah was priceless!!
Back from the holy lands, Abah, Mama and Adik went on to visit Cik Tie at her new abode in Patayya where they had wonderful holiday with Cik Lah's family.
I cant be bothered to find their numerous photos there...
And I'm getting tired writing this...so I guess I'll just stop here.
Till then,so long....and gear up for Ramadhan all of you,you hear me??
p/s I am never good at giving titles to anything,so...
