11 year old recognises importance of sterilisation

An 11 year old girl called the catsnip voice message system. She saw a cat in her estate a month ago and decided she'd like to get it sterilised. Her parents are against her getting the cat done, so she's paying for the sterilisation on her own. She has an adult who is able to help her transport the cat to the vet, but cannot help with the trapping.

She called Wiggie on the Catsnip voice message system and she seemed a little unsure of what to do. I finally managed to get her today as it is the fist day of her school holidays. She said that she wanted to get it sterilised but isn't quite sure how to go about it. The cat is also unfriendly according to her. We were concerned that she might not be able to trap the cat as she is inexperienced and might end up getting scratched if she isn't sure of what to do. Rebecca offered to help her with the cat - thanks Rebecca.

It's impressive that an 11 year old would think of getting the cat sterilised and even more so that she's prepared to pay for it out of her pocket money.

Heartwarming. She will be helping more cats as she grows older, an animal activist in the making and hopefully, as a future leader of Singapore, ends culling once and for all.

The old activists need to rest and retire from years of endless feeding, sterilisation, rescues etc.

The little girl probably learned on importance of cats sterilisation from CWS educational school talks, or from stray cat care-givers doing sterilisation. Hope more kids shows responsibility to their cats like the little girl. Kudos!

Sterilisation helps to reduce the over-population of stray cats.
