AVA and Scarecrows?

I called up the Animal Welfare department today at the AVA to ask if they might consider letting people we have Scarecrows and Cat Stops for loan since our stock just came in today and the good news is that they're considering it. I offered to loan them (or give them) one of each to try but they asked if I could just send them any video demonstrations of how they works so they can evaluate it. I do hope that that they'll agree - it could save some cats' lives. It's also actually almost the same price as a cat trap and it will work better at keeping cats out of your garden!

One up for "welfare" than "cull"
One small hole in the wall of frozen paradigm and a small ray is shining through

Hopefully they'll start using that instead of the cat traps. And hopefully that will lead to a paradigm shift in the way Singaporeans react when they encounter problems with animals.

By the way, it's so cute the way Pinball sits next to the cat stop and scarecrow while you took the picture.

Is the a government dept's indication of "considering" means likely Yes? I was wondering what is there to consider when it is so obviously the right thing to do! PRIDE???

Autumnpiglet - he was nosing in and out of the box all morning!

Anonymous I think they want to know how it works exactly. I'm hoping it'll be a yes.

How about tesimonials from the those who used them recently and found that they work. Will it help to sway the answer to a yes?

I've told them about that - I think they just want to look into it in a bit more detail.

Actually - he's named Pinball because he bounces all over the place!
