On waking up on Monday morning found the vomit of tomcat matata in the living room.I realized that he was suffering from some bout of minor "FOOD POISONING" and hence decided to give him fresh minced meat without much of fat content.Went to the butchers shop on my mobike and purchased high quality non-fat minced meat.The same was boiled with rice and fed to both the cats.I suspected that Matata was licking the "Cockroach poison" chalk marks that had been placed on the house floor but seems that was wrong. He must have ingested flakes of wall paint as he had the habit of sniffing and licking at house corners where some paint had peeled off from the walls.We banned him from entering the kitchen, his normal habit of venturing into kitchen corners and licking the paint. He is back to his normal habits and has stopped vomiting since Monday, eating his normal food twice a day.
The trouble with Tomcat matata is that he is similar to a wild animal, just can't be handled by strangers and even myself when he is in strange surroundings or in pain.akin to a tiger or lion he would have to be "tranquilized" for medical treatment, unbelievable for a small cat.Besides, most vets in Mumbai do not come home for treatment of pets.Thankfully it was a happy ending to Matata's brief poisoning sickness.
