Cat Heaven Needs Siyong More Than Us, RIP Siyong

Please scroll down for English version

Tanggal 10 Feb 2015, masuk laporan mengenai seekor kucing muda di Umbulharjo yang menderita rectal prolapse. Melihat kondisinya dari foto yang dikirimkan dan mengetahui bahwa prolapsed rectum harus segera ditangani secara medis, 2 relawan menuju ke lokasi. Tak diragukan lagi bahwa si kucing malang ini harus segera mendapat perawatan, apalagi sudah 2 minggu dia tidak mendapat penanganan apapun!!

Kami namai si tampan ini Siyong. Dia adalah salah satu kucing jalanan di Umbulharjo. Beruntung ada ibu pemilik warung sayur yang selalu berbaik hati memberi mereka makan. Hingga satu hari Siyong muncul di warung dengan tonjolan aneh berwarna merah yang menyembul dari tubuh bagian belakangnya! Sejanggal penampakannya, masalah kesehatan seperti ini adalah serius dan butuh ditangani segera. Ketika ada bagian dalam tubuh yang keluar tidak pada tempat seharusnya, ini dapat menyebabkan penyumbatan aliran darah dan matinya jaringan. Jika dibiarkan tanpa perawatan, jaringan yang mati dapat membuat kucing sakit dan bisa berakibat fatal.

Sang ibu sangat sedih melihat kondisi Siyong, tapi apa daya yang terbaik dapat beliau berikan untuk Siyong hanyalah memberinya makan dan tempat di warung untuk Siyong beristirahat. Sang ibu pun harus menyembunyikan Siyong dari orang-orang yang merasa jijik dan berusaha menangkap lalu membuang Siyong!!

Siyong segera mendapat perawatan medis dari drh. Andre Lisnawan. Prolapse dikoreksi dengan pijatan lembut untuk mengembalikan ke posisi asalnya. Penanganan tanpa operasi ini awalnya berhasil. Tapi saat Siyong masih menjalani observasi untuk mengidentifikasi penyebab penyakit agar bisa diberikan pengobatan yang tepat, rectal prolapsed Siyong muncul lagi dan lagi. Siyong sangat mudah stress, dan tiap kali Siyong merasa tidak nyaman, dia cenderung akan mengejan kuat-kuat.

Siyong harus menjalani dua kali operasi karenanya, tapi sayang ada jaringan rectal yang sudah terlalu rusak sehingga bagian yang sudah bermasalah itu harus diamputasi.

Operasi ke dua dilakukan tengah malam tanggal 23 Februari 2015. Larut malam, Siyong mengalami prolapse lagi setelah mengejan terlalu kuat saat mencoba BAB. Dan kali ini, keadaannya menjadi lebih buruk. Segera setelah mendapat telpon dari kami, drh. Andre bergegas datang ke rumah relawan yang merawat Siyong.

Paska operasi, setelah siuman penuh, Siyong terlihat jauh lebih tenang dan nyaman daripada sebelum-sebelumnya. Siyong bahkan mengeong minta makan dan terlihat sangat menikmati seporsi kecil makanan lembutnya. Akhirnya pun Siyong sudah bisa buang air kecil tanpa masalah. Siyong masih terus dimonitor dan diberikan perawatan intensif termasuk infus Intra Vena untuk mencegah dehidrasi dan kekurangan nutrisi karena Siyong belum boleh makan terlalu banyak.

Namun, meskipun kondisi Siyong sepertinya sudah lebih membaik, hari ini 25 Feb 2015, siang hari, Siyong tiba-tiba mengalami gangguan pernafasan. Sebelum kami bisa membawanya ke klinik, Siyong menghembuskan nafas terakhir.

Ada pesan dari Siyong untuk kamu semua yang telah menjadikannya bagian dari hidup kamu meskipun hanya sekejap saja: “
“Jangan menyesali semua yang sudah kamu lakukan untuk membantuku meskipun mungkin tidak sesuai harapan, kamu sudah melakukan yang terbaik buat aku, tapi surga kucing adalah tempat aku mau berada sekarang. Masih banyak teman-temanku di luar sana yang membutuhkan bantuan, jadi jangan sedih aku pergi karena kamu bisa ada untuk mereka seperti kamu ada untuk aku…”

Terimakasih untuk Anda semua yang tanpa pamrih memberi bantuan langsung untuk satwa yang membutuhkan, dan bagi Anda yang mendukung AFJ untuk terus memperjuangkan hak-hak satwa yang tertindas. Perjuangan belum berakhir, tapi bersama pasti kita bisa!

On Feb 10, 2015, someone reported about a young cat suffering from prolapsed rectum in Umbulharjo. Seeing the horrible condition from the picture sent and knowing that a rectal prolapse requires immediate medical attention, two volunteers checked on the cat on the next day. There’s no doubt that the poor cat had to be taken to a vet right away! He’d been like that without getting any treatment for 2 weeks!!

We called the handsome cat Siyong. He was one of the strays roaming around the area. Luckily, a caring lady who owns a grocery shop feeds them. Until one day Siyong came with a strange red bulge pushing out from his behind! As cringe-worthy as it is to look at, it’s also a serious medical issue that requires immediate attention. Anytime an internal part of the body protrudes outside the body, it can result in blood restriction and tissue death. If left untreated, that protruding tissue could die, which can make the cat ill and ultimately be fatal.

The lady felt so sad seeing him like that, but feeding him and letting him rest at her shop were the best she could do. She even had to hide Siyong because some people who felt disgusted tried to catch him and throw Siyong away!!

Siyong immediately had his first medical treatment from Vet Andre Lisnawan. The prolapse was corrected through gentle massage back into place. It was successful at first. However, as Siyong was still being observed so that the underlying cause can be identified and treated, it was happening again and again. Siyong was very easily to get stressed out, and every time he felt uncomfortable, he’d strain too hard.

Siyong had two surgeries; unfortunately the rectal tissue was already damaged too severely, so the diseased portion of the rectum had to be amputated.

The second surgery was conducted in the middle of the night on Feb 23, 2015. Late at night, the prolapse happened again after Siyong strained too hard as he tried to defecate, and this time it was worse. Upon receiving our frantic call, Vet Andre rushed to the volunteer’s house where Siyong was looked after.

Post surgery, fully awake, Siyong looked calmer and a lot more comfortable than before. He even asked for food and enjoyed his meal. Siyong could finally urinate without any problem. Siyong was still closely monitored and given intensive care.
However after the progress he made, today at noon Siyong suddenly had breathing difficulty. Before we could take him to the clinic, Siyong said goodbye

A message from beloved Siyong to all of you who have made him part of your life, even if it was only for a short time:
“Don’t regret all the things you’ve done to help me although it didn’t work out as you expected to be, you’ve tried your best but the cat heaven is the place I want to be for now. There are still many of my friends who need your help, so don’t be sad for you can be there for them as you could for me…”

Our deep gratitude to all of you who have always been there and actively helping the animals in need, and also to all of you who keep on supporting AFJ in our effort in fighting for the rights of the animals. The fight is still continuing and sometimes it seems endless, but we are sure that together we can keep the fight and make this world a better place for all species!
