Carrier in corridor with cats

Carrier in corridor with cats
Originally uploaded by dawnkua.

It's not a wonder that people on this floor are complaining of cat defecation - there are cats and kittens in the corridor. The resident next door told me that he had told the person to keep the cat in several times but she refused. I knocked on the door but no one answered - just hope that she takes the cats in. Another neighbour told me she has 9 cats inside the flat.

the corridor is messy and untidy. I think she has too many cats inside her flat and she cannot cope. That's the reason she let some of the cats out because there is no more room for some of them. Why don't she re-home some of her cats. Some people prefer older cats than kittens because older cats are less playful and they eat and sleep only. Hopefully she don't pick up any more cats.

such a big cat but stuffed into a small carrier. it must be very uncomfortable for him. no space to move around or stretch. Wish the owner understands the plight of these cats. Either bring them into the flat to roam freely or foster out some of these cats to good homes. Hope the owner is not the selfish and possessive type.

Sometimes one wonders what these people mean when they said they "love" cats and yet so visibly irresponsible in their actions that they really "love the cats to their death!" literally.

As you can see, the mother cat has kittens as well - so there are at least two or three cats in the carrier. I didn't want to upset the mother by going too close to see.

You mean some more kittens in that small carrier. Oh my God. I couldn't see clearly from the photo here. I thought it was a big fat cat alone in the carrier. Hope someone can sponsor a bigger cage to the owner. At least, let the cat and kittens live comfortably.

I hope she'll bring the cats IN or put them downstairs if she doesn't have space and continue looking after them. I don't think that it's particularly safe for them in a cage in the corridor.

It's a relieve noticing the cage is open and catfood outside the cage. The cat is free to move in and out of the cage and free to roam outdoors.
But pity the mother cat, as mother cat needed privacy and a quiet place, when nursing their kittens. Here mother cat no choice but nursing her kittens at the corridor where people passes by.
Best if the owner put the mother cat and her kitties inside her home and sterilised the mother cat, as soon as the kitten are weaned and can eat solid food.

I once sponsor a bigger cage as a mother cat & 4 babies were in a locked bird cage. A mth later, I found four adult cats living in filth (no litter box)in the locked cage I sponsored - the "loving owner" just took in more cats to "sayang".

Very true, sadly.

Cats and kittens living in bird cage? That's even worse. This is really physical abuse. How could the owner do this to her own cats? If you happen to see owners caging their cats without the litter tray and in filthy and smelly condition, please report to the authorities. To me, I think this amounts to physical and mental abuse. If you love your cat, provide the basic necessity and some toys. There must be proper cat food and clean drinking water, bigger room/space to walk around and stretch, otherwise the cat will be most unhappy, frustrated and miserable. You never know the cat might fall sick because of filty living condition. Hope owners know how to treat their cats properly and with respect. If I see the cats being cramped and caged in a carrier, I will just open the door and let the cats run downstairs. At least, the cats will have freedom and less misery.
