Today (29-1-07)

A whole slew of letters in Today on their Voices page :-

Do cats belong in HDB estates?

You have to download the PDF version though in order to see them properly.

Khoo Hwee Boon's letter pretty much is a head on rebuttal of the letter by Yan Wai Kit.

It seems ST is no longer publishing any more letters. Our letter was not published either.

I think it's a shame that ST is no longer publishing letters on the issue, and that the HDB has remained silent.

As for the TODAY letters, the one by Goh Kian Huat could well be taken for a template reply that HDB would issue. Let's see if HDB respond to these.

Doubt that ST is entertaining this issue anymore. I didnt even get the customary, "due to the lack of space..... we are unable to publish your letter..." from ST. I wrote them a point by point rebuttal of the letter by Peter Kuan.

For HDB, they will just chose to remain silent. Why? Cos if they have nothing to reply except the template letter. They would rather keep silent.

End of the day, it is an issue that does not involve dollars and sense. So there will not be phone calls from higher ups to ask HDB what is going on. So HDB will just shove it into the dustbin.

I, too, applauded volunteer and caregiver who give their time and money to sterilise the strays.

Wish there are more who have the same vision for a strong TNRM.

Hope ST reconsiders printing incoming letters on the topic.It is a good way of creating
awareness on our strays' plight and situations.

Current cat matters reflect on HDB ruling and such debates can go on forever unless something dramatic happen. It's a long, long road ahead. Sterilisation of strays save lives, that must be fixed at high speeds.

I'm thinking now that, like upgrading, they should do a vote and see if truly the majority of cat owners are against having cats around.

I actually think that whether the majority think people should be allowed to keep cats is not the point. After all, it's your home. Say I dislike the smell of belachan, or durian, or curry or whatever it is, can I ask someone to stop cooking it? If I don't like your music, can I ask you turn it off? If it doesn't cause a nuisance (ie you're not turning your music on at full volume really late at night), why should people not be allowed to do what they want?
