Nails on the walls of the family who trapped the kitten
Tag Archives: cruelty
No fosterer or nursing mother cat could be found but Ben didn’t have the heart to bring the kittens to SPCA. They syringe-fed them… but with ordinary milk. One of the kittens had died.
As shops were already closed I called Penny and luckily she had kitten milk. The kittens are perhaps 10 days old… eyes just opened.
Posters have been put up as the culprit is likely to be a resident of this block. The box with the kittens was found next to the lift.
Dumped like rubbish!!!
Six newborn kittens were cruelly abandoned at the void deck of block 853 on June 26. They are very unlikely to survive even with 2-hourly feeding of kitten milk.
This is Animal Cruelty, a crime punishable by imprisonment of up to 12 months, a fine of up to $ 10.000 or both.
Please call Helga at 96799966 if you know who did this!

Don’t jump to conclusions – your pet may not be the cause of your allergies

FOR years, he was the centre of attraction, a cute little puppy in a family of two elderly parents and an unmarried son.
Then one day the son got married and soon, a child came along.
The child developed a frequent running nose and she was taken to a general practitioner nearby. The GP asked if there were pets in the flat. When the dog was mentioned, the doctor right away identified the dog as the cause.
Since then, the dog has been barricaded in a small corner of the kitchen. His fur is now matted and his nails are long. There are bits of faeces stuck to the fur. He jumps and barks in excitement whenever there are visitors, but no one picks him up, pats him on the head, bathes him or takes him for walks.
I have offered to adopt the dog but the child’s mother said her husband might not be willing to part with it.
I feel sad and helpless.
I can only appeal to my fellow doctor colleagues: Please refer a child with suspected allergies to a specialist to be tested for allergies. Do not make sweeping statements.
Even if the child is laboratory-tested and is allergic to a pet, it is not necessary to so drastically isolate a pet.
There are humane ways to allow allergic people to coexist with a pet. As a last resort, find the pet a good home.
The pet is not guilty

Saw a Sheng Siong outlet in my neighbourhood and went in to see how the “food animals” such as life fish and frogs are being treated at this store. Didn’t see any frogs and the tanks holding life fish seemed not to be overcrowded…. but then I saw this fish (in the centre of the photo) still flapping about and gasping for air. The smiles of the sales staff told me that this is simply the way it’s done…
A complaint was made to CWS that a cat was being kept in a very small cage at a factory building. Penny and myself went to investigate.
First thing we both said when we saw the cat “This is not a small cage!”. The cat owner also told us that the cat is allowed into her office for some time each day.
She agreed to get the 3-year-old Siamese X “Mao Mao” sterilised and then I will help to put him up for adoption.
Mao Mao is for adoption
