Boy


Boy
Originally uploaded by dawnkua.

More sad news for the caregiver. Since the complainant was being so difficult, she decided it would be safer for Boy (since here in another photo taken on the same day) to be put in foster care and to try and get him adopted. One of the RC member's relatives in fact took him in (though the relative does not live anywhere close to the caregiver).

Boy was sent to his temporary foster home yesterday night, and though the caregiver told the foster to keep the windows shut, the foster did not. Unfortunately Boy then jumped out the window and fell four storeys and is currently missing. If you are in the vicinity of Woodlands Drive 50 please keep an eye out for Boy. The caregiver is understandably really upset - it's just been bad news and more bad news.

Oh my gosh, 4 stories... I hope 'Boy' is OK... it's been raining these few days...

Maybe the caregivers of the area should start combing the area to look for him... even if he is injured, if I am not wrong, cats normally hide when they are injured to recuperate?

I pray hard you all find 'Boy' very soon! Please keep us posted!

Please tell the caregiver that many hearts are with her/him and the cats that are involved. Although it is hard not to feel angry with the bully, but we hope true justice will prevails. It is so ridiculous that even the RC chairperson is kowtowing to the bully.

iwooiblog - we contacted a caregiver who lives nearby and she's helping to keep an eye out.

Thanks Anonymous. She was really upset this morning, poor lady.

It will be better to print the photos of "Boy" and pass to the cleaners and promise them a reward. They will be great lookout for the cat.

i am wondering if Boy is still hiding somewhere in the house and not fall out of the window as informed.

Fostering and adoption are frightening words, been in rescue for a decade. People just won't listen, too many cases of cats plunging to their deaths due to owners who insisted they would keep windows shut, doors shut etc but refused to mesh up the place.
Then one day they forgot to shut the door, cat escapes, window open the night before, cat falls to death ect.
stubborn streaks form part of murder weapons.

I know the caregiver is going down herself to look for him and a caregiver who is quite close by will be going down to help look out too. Posters and flyers would be good - and you're right Mary, sometimes that does happen too.

As much as the foster is well-intentioned in putting Boy up, it is unfortunate that safety was overlooked, lack of experience with cats perhaps. A rescued cat whether or not trapped forcibly will feel uneasy in new surroundings. I nearly had the regrettable experience of having a trapped cat jump out, even as the window was 3/4 meshed up. Since then I cover 100%.

Ever since I have my Teh Cee, and she gave us a scare when she was a kitten, running around in the house and suddenly leaped onto the kitchen's window grill and balanced herself on one of the grills!! (she was small enough then to squeeze through the entire grill opening) she was balancing dangerously on the grill, one more leap and that was it.

I quickly grabbed her down, and ever since, my entire flat is either meshed up or all doors and windows kept closed and shut tight... even till today when she seem less interested in looking out or leaping out windows... but we still keep all of them shut tight, despite my family members' complain about no air, hot, no wind etc... (ha ha)

Cheers

Glad to hear it - and you're right, sometimes people who are not that experienced with cats aren't able to anticipate just how resourceful they can be when they attempt to get out.

Hi, anything? Has Ah Boy been found? Cats are habitual... hopefully and don't think he will go very far...

All my prayers and thoughts... Cheers

i really hope they'll find Boy soon ... maybe he's in shock & is hiding somewhere eg. the drains ... good luck & stay calm ... nothing can be solved if one is panicky (easier said than done, i know) ...

I fully agreed with anonymous 12.18. also the cleaners can at least inform the gal or feeders there shud they found any carcass(God forbid, but it'l at least bring a closure to her worry).
And its a good way of getting the cleaners warmed up for future cooperation too.

ask the cleaners if they hv picked up any dead cat. they shd be able to tell because they clean the estate everyday.

the cat could be injured and hiding in the drains. it's best to search and treat his injuries asap.
