The paw looks badly infected… and he feels feverish. Looks like a new abandonee, unsterilized young male. Luckily he was hungry enough to come close. He was quietly sitting watching me feed Ginger Girl, no sound… almost didn’t notice him. Had to call LK at midnight as I didn’t have a carrier with me.

This Persian cat was abandoned. LK thought he was lost and took him in.
Today she saw a Chinese couple with cat-food. They seemed to be looking for a cat. LK was very happy until they told her that they didn’t want the cat back because he urinated on the son’s bed. They just came to give him some food…
The cat is very friendly and uses the litter tray. He will be sterilised before adoption.
Cycled by Blk *24 and saw a woman carrying a basket and the boy trying to look into the basked… I turned round and observed. True enough there was a kitten in the basket. The women told me that her son found it and assured me that she would take it home and that she had cat-food. I am not convinced…
The kitten has a pretty white and light-grey colour and long straight tail.
Told her to put the kitten up for adoption if she does not want to keep it and asked for her tel. no. in case someone is interested in adopting.
I guess he is about about 5 month old. Only noticed when clearing the plates of Timmy, Little Black and Choc. The little one was too frightened to come out from under the lorry but so hungry that he called out in a very pitiful voice. I couldn’t see anything as it was dark and raining but I followed Timmy’s stare and placed the food under the lorry. Soon a black head popped out from under the lorry… finished one big plate-full and a second helping.
Clean soft fur, scared but tame… clearly a case of abandoned home cat. Saw him between *28 and *29… so hungry!
Kiki has been released today. The new Burmese kitten is now less shy. One of her eyes looked a bit watery… asked Sylvia to keep an eye on it and let me know if it gets worse. If she is ok then i will get her sterilized next week.
The cleaning supervisor told me about a complaint that a cat is going up to the 3rd floor at *27. The complainant has phobia of cats. She said that the cats (Cloudy and another young cat or kitten) used to hide behind the flower pots. Now she has moved them closer together and has covered the gaps between the pots. She will try the vinegar, mothballs and spray bottle method to discourage the cats from going up. Told her to let me know if she sees anyone feeding upstairs… once someone had placed cat food right in the middle of the corridor outside her unit.
He appeared about half a year ago and was already tipped… so I actually never named him. Met him today as he came back from the vet… vaccinated, certified and all ready to migrate 🙂 His new guardian told me that the vet estimated him to be about 9 years old.
I had heard that a lady from the Philippines had adopted one of the community cats but didn’t know which one it was…
This male appeared at the same time as Fifi. He has not been eating for 3 days. I suspect fish bone. He is at the same block as Beauty who had 4 fish bones removed from her throat! http://meowies.multiply.com/journal/item/735/Beauty_unable_to_eat… He has not been named and sterilized yet…
Lala went to her new home today.
Brought Oki downstairs today for a while… where he met Fifi, Coco and Jumpy.
WITH THEIR LIVES
The proliferation of stray animals in our communities is a human-created problem. They are here as a direct result of human-driven activities – a thriving live pet trade, irresponsible breeding and pet abandonment.
An average of 10,000 cats have been put down every year for the past 10 years. Yet we continue to let breeding and abandonment go unchecked year on year, killing the excess when it becomes embarrassing.
Isn’t it time we face up to the root cause of stray proliferation?
EVERY 24 HOURS, 27 CATS ARE CULLED
Saw a group of children with a small black cage holding 3 kittens at the void deck of *23.
Sensing abandonment I asked some questions… every single reply was a lie! I In the end I gave the boy a choice to bring me to his home or I would call the police. He stays at block *16, 5th floor corner unit. The mother said she let him bring the kittens downstairs to play as she was cleaning the house.
My gut feeling is that the mother had asked him to throw the kittens at *23! Why else would they carry the cage all the way there and why bring a big bowl of dry food along??? I was in a rush so I left it at that with a warning that abandonment was a crime.
The new abandonee first seen at Blk *22 on Dec 4 is now at *23. He looks healthy but has lost weight.
Any kittens dumped at my door will be sent to SPCA!
I have long made up my mind about this! I will also investigate and make a police report!
Town Council is checking the camera recordings… Time of the crime has been narrowed down to between 6 and 8am this morning.
This could be the work of feeders or pest control workers because the 3 kittens are of different ages and only one of them seems invested with mites. They were in a brownish carrier with a damaged door secured with two rubber bands.
The older one has been sent for sterilisation and will then be released… Actually she looks only about 4 to 4 1/2 months old but has a very bulging tummy… which could be due to either pregncy or worms.
The other two would have little chance of survival outside.
Sophie is going for sterilisation tomorrow…
Someone has already rescued the mother & 3 kittens on the 3rd floor corridor of Blk *05. I had forwarded the sms from town council to whoever I thought might be able to help. There is actually a feeder in this area and someone does TNRM there. It must be a pregnant home cat that had been abandoned…
By the time Auntie G turned up to show me the pregnant cat I already had her in the carrier. She is very tame and hopefully early stage…
Had planned to take either the pregnant cat or the siblings…so had brought only one large carrier. Ended up doing something quite stupid… put the male cat into a cardboard box and tied it onto to the front basket. Had to press on the box lid while cycling back to prevent escape. All went well but on hindsight it was too risky…
Also saw another new young male cat (tabby/white) at the same area…sigh!
