Kittens galore

I've had three different emails and calls with people today who have asked if we can find foster for 10 cats (including one mother cat and her 4 kittens). Considering that we have a very small pool of fosters (two of whom are away right now), we cannot possibly find fosters for them all.

What we would suggest to people as always is to please not remove cats unless they are in a position where you feel that they will be in danger if they continue to stay where they are. If not, please leave them be, continue to care for them if you can and get them sterilised, but do not take them home unless you plan to adopt them yourselves. One of the young women who picked up the cats today mentioned herself she realised there are tons of cats out there.

Another important thing to note is that it is important to try and find the cats a good home - not just any home. If the cat is then thrown out when it is no longer cute, or not sterilised and breeding continuously, its life could be much worse than if it had been left on the street.

Just read the Aljunied TC has labelled all cats even community cats that are sterlized as pests and have informed AVA to catch them. Anyone can verify this?

CO - I don't believe this to be the case. First of all, I have heard the pest comment, but so far it is just a rumour.

Second, the AVA does not trap cats - the TC does.

Third, I was just forwarded an email yesterday from one of the MPs of this area asking that the TC meet up to work with caregivers.

Thank you Dawn for clarifying, just checking as this is circulating like wildfire in pet forums.
