Caregivers in Hougang?

I went down and did a presentation for a town council. Almost twenty TC officers attending the meeting. The sad thing is that there are only 5 or 6 caregivers in the area and it's quite a large area. They're quite keen to start up cat cafes and to have a more organised programme. The problem is that while we've been trying to find volunteers we haven't been very successful. Anyone on this board care for community cats in Hougang? It does criss-cross three different town councils but we're hoping to find people who are within this precint.

Is the TC bold enough to put up posters in every block to "recruit" care-givers?

They did ask for flyers (the ones we slip under doors) to paste up.

sorry for posting here, but people have been calling up my mobile phone and looking for Cat Welfare Association's personnels... it's utterly irritating and I pray real hard for the distributor(s) of the phone numbers to check their "records" first.

my apologies to Dawn for this irrelevant comment. =) just hope they visit your blog to see this.

Sorry Anonymous! How did they get your number? If you drop me an email, I'll give you my real number for you to pass to them - though they may then use you as directory assistance.

Thanks Wei - people who adopt may not want to be caregivers though unfortunately! Certainly no harm in trying - right now, asking the caregivers we do know to ask around - it seems that they do know more people already.
