Chewbaaka purrs to all.

Hi! Chewbaaka made it through another day. His blood values are not very good, as his condition has really tasked his kidneys. We continue to fill him full of sub-Q fluids; he was very dehydrated this morning. But then he was a bit stronger during the day. He ate 800 grams of meat today. I stuffed it into his mouth and asked him to swallow –which he did- small amounts several times during the day. With this, we were able to get his kidney meds into him for the second day and also some vitamins.

He began grooming himself a few times today – this was great to see! And then this evening we gave him some more sub-Q fluids. His kidneys shut down some due to the trauma and we are hoping to get this under control to regulate his kidney function again to the level that he was at over the last few months...carefully guarded. So, in a nut shell, he is responding to our care. However, we continue to be very guarded as to his recovery. He is purring and seems to respond to the care we are giving him. He is a very strong and special cheetah.

Thanks for all the concern that is coming to us and I know that everyone is waiting with guarded anticipation of our next communications. I will keep you posted. All else here is OK.

Thanks everyone and many Chewbaaka purrs.



  1. Much love to him.
