Supervising the packing 🙂

Ariel must be the luckiest of those cats rescued from the hoarder. She and her new brother and sister reached Frankfurt safely and are flying on to New York right now, together with their guardian who made sure to get the best Airlines for them 🙂

New Novena Kitten to be sterilised

Went with Penny, to try and trap the 3 orange-white kittens (two males and one female). However they were too smart or not hungry enough and refused to enter the trap. We spend 4 hours trying but in the end only this new young male was trapped. As usual there was dry food lying around even though I had reminded the feeder to remove any left-over after feeding them in the morning. Very frustrating when the feeder doesn’t do her part.

We also went to visit B today. The cats looked well-fed, healthy and relaxed and B assured us that they would not take in any more. They have two more females to be sterilised…and one male. The male will be done next weekend. There are also 3 kittens that are about 4 to 5 months old.

Update on hoarder “B”

13 cats (5 females and 8 males) have been sterilised so far. B was cooperative, bringing the cats to the vet as agreed and also seemed to appreciate the help and asked us to visit him. However when I tried to confirm a day and time… there was no reply to my sms. Hmmm…maybe I wait one more day but then it’s time for another visit to check on the condition and number of cats. B claimed that the remaining 7 were still too young to be sterilised.

Rose looks a little unwell. I applied the eye ointment as there is some discharge and also the third eyelid is showing…will wait and observe. She still has appetite… ate the Fussy Cat.

Have not seen the Little Princess for 3 days and was very worried… until sms from R that she saw Princess today . Probably taken home by someone… just like Bamboo when he was lost for 4 days. Also one side of her whiskers were cut when I last saw her and she had a small wound at the other side of her mouth.

There is still the filled food and water bowl on the 13th floor and suspect that this family took her in… even though I had told them that a resident of this block had recently complaint about “many cats” to the MP.

Stroked Noisy Joe today….hopefully can nap him soon for sterilisation. A moment later he started a fight with his brother Alex… had to splash water on them.

Hoarder’s Mom and Kittens

Now in foster care… a soft bed for her and the kittens instead of a soiled cardboard box invested with roaches… receiving love and care perhaps for the first time in her life.

A new Hoarder in the making

They adopted 4 kittens from Penny and myself, pretending to have only one cat. We went to their place … the cat looked well, the flat was neat and nicely furnished.

We guessed that they just wanted to adopt 4 more Kittens because they can’t have children as the “wife” is trans-gender.

Then after two month, there was reluctance to sterilise so I offered help. When the vet told me that the kitten’s belly was very dirty we made a surprise visit. The flat was a mess and there was strong urine smell. The adopter admitted that they had hidden some cats during our first visit and that later they took in some more … having a total of 20 cats now. When we threatened to take the kittens back (we came prepared with carriers), the adopter claimed that they really love the cats and that his wife would not want to return the 4 kittens. we relented under the condition that no further cats will be taken in and all cats will be sterilised asap.

So far they have been cooperative, sending in 4 more females today and as agreed paid sterilisation fees for two of them. The next batch of 4 males will be done next week. Then we will visit again to see the condition and also count the number of cats.

The situation is not as terrible as with the other hoarder… the cats seem healthy although some are scared and shy. There was a huge litter tray in the kitchen but the cats obviously urinated on the sofa set and many other places.

Hoarder update

8 more cats were rescued and sent to the vet today for sterilisation and also vaccination.

All the cats will be vaccinated before being returned so that they can be quickly transferred to a boarding facility if the need arises… Kittens will not be returned!

Seems the old Lady had a change of heart. She asked the volunteers to bring the two female cats that she ties up to the vet for sterilisation next week.

She was also happy to have the earlier batch safely returned to her and thanked the volunteers for their help.
