Cat on a string


Cat on a string
Originally uploaded by dawnkua.

I dropped by to speak to the man with the cat on a string this afternoon. He was fast asleep and didn't wake up when I called his name. For some reason, every time I've gone by recently, he's been napping (and so is the cat). I'll need to go down and speak with him again when he's awake :)

The cat is not on a string for a long time now. It's chained(metal) with a small padlock(metal) round its collar(flesh). Sure it looks well fed and grown, but I feel for it. It looks sad... as of yesterday.

Ac is right - but I got used to calling it 'cat on a string' as he had been called that early on. I want to speak with him again about his plans and whether he is ready to give the cat up now.

I don't think he is EVER going to let the cat go. He said earlier that he was about to move away soon and give the cat up blah blah like...months ago? Those were delaying tactics I'm sure. This whole thing smacks of cruelty to me. Keeping the cat chained up like that for many months cannot be good. Perhaps it is time for some drastic action? Maybe we can free the cat? Sorry for being such a cynic..

Anonymous, the problem is HOW to free the cat even if we wanted to. The AVA and the police have gone down too and they can't make him give it up either.

Cat on a string owner could be faking he is in deep sleep to avoid your constant reminder of sterilising his cat. Next time, simply wake up the man.
Poor cat! It should be release from string and free to run about. It's cruel to chain cat for ages. The cat been on a string since it was a kitten until present day adult cat.

Tough case.
Dawn can try and persuade him to sterilise the cat and free him at the same time. If he really loves the cat, he should let it go free.
(as the saying goes).
Can advise him to adopt other cage pets like hamsters etc instead of cats.

tell e man dat if he has been good to his cat,and he sterilise e cat,his cat will not run away even without tying e cat.
i mean his cat will love him and stay by his side if he has fuixdalways been kind.No need to tie it up.More imp is to sterilise first.
