Picked up Good Boy from the vet and on the way home saw a girl sitting at the void deck with a large cage holding 5 cats and an empty carrier. I approached her and found out that they were going to release them. Then I saw cat number six walking around and asked the girl to place him back into the carrier. Made some calls while waiting for her mother. Thankfully the cats were accepted at a cattery. The mother gave me $300 after I told her the usual boarding fees and requested that she should give at least as much as she can for the boarding. She said they are shifting out to stay with her sister until they get their new flat… in a few months time and that she would then take the cats back also would visit them at the cattery… we exchanged tel. numbers
They had already called the AVA and SPCA before decing to abandon the cats downstairs….sigh!
I had also called the police just in case… at least there is a record and her particulars were taken. I was taken aback when one of the officers said that abandonment was actually not a crime unless there was abuse. This cannot be true!
The daughter helped me to bring the cage to my place and then came back a while later with cat number 7. All the cats are sterilized and tipped.
Later at night Damy came to collect the cats, to board over night and then bring them to Metta cattery the next morning. The cats were very tame and very frightened… didn’t make a sound while they were here.
