Cats eating


Cats eating
Originally uploaded by dawnkua.

I spoke with one of the caregivers in the area afterward as she was feeding the cats. One of the people in the block had been complaining that she was feeding them in the pavilion behind the block and was gesticulating wildly to show me that she was there when I walked under his window!

Ac-B8 and everyone please do NOT go to the Bonsaid Cat link. This is an old hoax (and I think I wrote about it a while ago on this blog too). The creators of the website which was a prank are Americans and they are doing it for the attention. The FBI investigated as well. Please do not go to the link as you are giving them the attention they want.

better feed cats at a quiet corner than let them jump on tables. They think cats are dirty, shed fur and though they don't use the tables, will use it as an excuse against cats.

Please let the auntie know that by feeding the cats at the pavilion, it will attract unneccessary attn and adverse reaction from the other residents.

I have never fed my cats on the table. But i was surprised when i saw them sleeping on tables at the void deck on a few nights. I guess they feel safer "higher up" :)

Do you feed your cats at your table? Even if you do, you shd not be feeding cats at a table in a public place where hundred pairs of eyes would be watching. Again, the cats will be the target of complaints to TC because of stupidity.

It is best to feed in an inconspicuous place at a quiet time & clean up afterwards. It would not endanger the cats' lives.

Definitely - the less obvious the cats are, the better. I did tell the woman that people had seen her feeding (and she feeds at dinner time too) but she didn't seem perturbed.

Feed at off-peak hours and somewhere quiet. That's the best thing to do.

Dawn, perhaps for such kind of feeders, you can show them photos of the cats when they were roundup by pest control people. The agony on the kitties' faces and how they were being forced into the carriers. The fate that awaits them at AVA or wherever. I believe a picture speaks a thousand words. Some people just don't know how dangerous it is going to be for the cats when residents complain.

If the feeder is not perturbed about putting the cats' lives in danger & intends to show (at peak hours & in prime spot) to all who care to watch that she is feeding cats...she does not have the cats' welfare at heart. Well, i shd not be mean spirited, she probably has her reasons ; P
Unfortunately her supporting cast becomes target of culling.

I don't feed them near the table, that is why I said I was surprised to see them sleeping on it side by side one very late night.
Actually i think we do not need to be so "secretive" about feeding, absolutely nothing wrong but i do agree feeding at somewhere not so obvious. Then again there are people everywhere. I tried feeding at different times, I once tried feeding at 5am and guess what, someone threw a water bomb to welcome me!

Anonymous - you can try your best but sometimes there will be people who object no matter what. You're absolutely right - there is no need to be ashamed or scared when feeding if you do it responsibly - but it is good to try NOT to draw unwanted attention to the cats.
