I just entered my bathroom to shower when i saw this HUGE cockroach on my mirror!!
I screamed, ran out of the toilet, grabbed the insecticide, and opened the toilet door stealthily and took a peep at the cursed roach. It was perched on my mirror, above my toothbrush. As quietly as i could, i took my toothbrush out of the toilet. Then i took a breath to calm myself down, and opened the toilet door again.
I aimed the nozzle of the insecticide at the roach & sprayed at it! WAH LAU EH! Guess what happened? IT FLEW!! So i had a huge roach, with hairy legs, and wings that work!! @%&*)#
I slammed my toilet door again and sought solace from my fren on ICQ. Mustering up more courage, i opened the door a slit to peek into the loo again. Scanned the toilet but i couldn’t see the damned roach. Then i saw it! It was on my window!! I quickly sprayed more insecticide on it and the wretched thing flew out of the window. Phew!! Talk about diehard…
Anyway, i closed my windows as fast as i could… slammed them shut in case the roach was lingering somewhere on the sill… at least that would ensure that it’s squashed. (“Crush it like a cockroach!”)
Now my toilet stinks of insecticide. Darn! How to bathe like that? Jialat… argh… i hate cockroaches!!!
Pinky – refusing to eat
Pinky’s not eating nor drinking. Had to coax/force him to take in some food yesterday and he ate – approx. 10 celery leaves, 6 strands of hay, and 2 shreds of carrot the whole of yesterday. That’s very very little. A celery leaf is like 2cm x 1cm in size… and a shred of carrot… think the small pieces u find in your popiah.
I called the vet for advice just now. The vet asked whether Pinky pooped or peed. Well, he peed once the whole of yesterday… and he dropped 1 small pellet this morning. How to shit & pee if u’re not eating nor drinking? But this is a very bad sign because a rabbit needs to eat constantly to keep his digestive tract working. Once it shuts down, that’s the end for the rabbit.
So things are looking very bleak right now. I picked up this powder mix from the vet. (Didn’t take Pinky down in case the car ride freaks him out more.) Supposed to mix it with water to form a paste & force-feed with a syringe. Managed to get 1ml of the mixture into Pinky before he nearly jumped out of my arms. The recommended dosage from the vet is “0.3ml a few times a day”. Great. I’m only getting him to take 1/3 of his dietary needs.
Told my dad that i’m left with no choice but to FORCE-feed Pinky every hour. Even if he drinks only 1ml of the mixture, that’s better than nothing.
Please pray for/that:
1) Pinky’s appetite to return to normal
2) Pinky doesn’t die.
3) Speedy recovery of the wound.
