Visit to Alley Cat Allies
I dropped by Alley Cat Allies again yesterday - they're going to help sell our "Real Singapore Cat" book on their website.
They're hard at work with the cats down in the Gulf Coast because of all the cats displaced because of the Hurricane. I did speak with Donna and Kris from ACA for a while - realised that the situations we face may be in different countries, but that people around the world behave the same!
For one thing, she mentioned that they have problems getting vets to do early spay neuter too. Donna took two years to convince a vet to do it - and now he says he really likes it.
We were also talking about people who won't sterilise and keep saying they'll find homes for them. One lady Donna spoke to had 27 cats by the time they got her to sterilise them.
I've always thought that if you took caregivers from all over the world and put them together, they'd find they have far more in common no matter what their culture or background. We all speak a common language - cat :)
Cate from Humane Alliance also wrote. She has said that she would be willing to come to Singapore so share how to start up a clinic! That would be great - now we just need to get funds to get them over!
