Last night Megat was uncharacteristically quiet at dinner. He did not spring out from under the table to run to the kitchen and neither did he complain loudly at our tardiness and infinite slowness at giving him his dinner. I was surprised and a little anxious as eversince he came to live with me, he has always been very noisy at dinner time (eversince his Screaming Banshee days).
He ate his food + pumpkin but did no finish all of it (oh dear) and did not hang around to check out anyone else's food dishes (more oh dears). Then he decided to rest in the cat basket (and not disappear as he knows it would be time for supplements). It was very eay to catch him. He did eat almost all of his supplements with good grace and spat only 1/4 of them out.
His body was a little hot but not his ears and his nose was not dry. I decided to wipe him with some cool water and then put him in his night cage to rest. Later I then placed the cool water cushion (I had first placed it first in the freezer for 30 mins or so) against the side of his cage and placed his toy next to it so he can rest on his toy and still be cool.
At about 11.00 pm I checked to see if he was alright and he indeed he was resting close to the cool mat but this morning I saw that he did not eat any of his biscuits and not even his night treat. Oh dear....
However I gave him some wet food to eat before I went to work and eventhough he did not finish his wet food, at least he had quiet enthusiastically eaten what he could. I left him napping on my bed, at his favourite place which is next to my pillow :)
He was just a little warm and I hope when he drinks his usual Dora cup water with ice, he would feel better later. Grandma said she would see to it that he gets his water for the morning.
I do not know why he has fever as we did not go to the vet as we would usually do as he is on 2 weeks off. He would usually get a temperature right after his vincristine but this was not the case yesterday. I will just have to see if he is ok and if not, we would have to see the vet.
Get Well Megat!
