Now for something cheerful

After that last horrible post, I think it's time for something more cheerful. The same caregiver who picked up the poor cat told me she was trapping cats for sterilisation the other day, and someone came out to ask what she was doing. She explained what she was doing, and the man, who owns a shop where she traps the cats, gave her $750 to sterilise the cats!

So there are still kind people around - and people like the caregiver are making a big difference to show TNR works too.

yeah, it is indeed a cheery news cos just last week, i was being told that a chinese medical hall owner has been spraying Baygon at a poor little kitten who's been appearing at her shop. Upon hearing, i couldn't help hoping that the shop would soon be flooded with all kinds of insects! hehehee :o)

Interesting you should bring this up. Reminds me of a friend who rescued some kittens - the guy had poured super glue over them. Both kittens were saved fortunately.
However, no one would testify - he ran a store and the employees were all too scared. My friend was very upset.
A little while later, she head his business failed, and his health ran into problems - so now he goes around telling everyone to be nice to animals and tells them that what he did led to all his problems.
Sometimes, what goes around, comes around.

fortunately, kitten was rescued by a young daughter & her mother & they brought kitten home to clean it up. However, they were unable to keep kitten at their home permanently & released it somewhere, thereafter.

tough job you have. i wonder how you managed to keep your sanity while sorting out all these issues. surely, it must go beyond passion and ideals?!

the imp - that's called dedication. which is sadly lacking or non existent in today's singaporean youngsters.

Would the daughter testify to the police do you think? If so, the woman can be brought up on cruelty charges. I'd be happy to speak with the daughter if she'd consider it.

Keeping sanity? :) I'm sure some people do doubt our sanity sometimes (or all the time!) especially when you tell them what we do!

"CAT Welfare Society - as in meow, meow CAT"? *insert look where the person looks at you like you're crazy*

The other day someone asked if I was from the CAP Welfare Society - I imagined a whole bunch of caps, whose rights we're trying to protect - maybe they didn't like the way they were displayed in the shop window? I think the man would have been less surprised if I was working for CAP welfare :)

true. dedication is a word not oft heard nowadays.

daughter to testify? it really depends on how strong her sense of justice is. at least speak with her? then you won't keep wondering about whether you've done enough for this. you've only so much energy for all the things that demand your attention.
