Haig Road TNR

Tomorrow evening we will be heading to the location above to trap and neuter 8 cats that are not yet tipped-ear in this colony.



There are some problem issues in this estate. There is hearsay of someone feeding rat poison to the cats. Also, a hoarder who does not sterilise her cats consistently dumps cats in the void decks. Much intervention has gone on but there is still no respite. There are 3 feeders that our volunteers have touched base with already, but they cannot sterilise as quickly as the cat population grows. So we are going to help!

Watch out for our tweets @luvkuching as we bring you the trapping action on the ground tomorrow night!

Deuce indeed!

On the day after Labour Day, we had a new arrival named Deuce. Rescued by @edmondchua who chanced upon Deuce in Eunos Crescent dumped alone, hungry, Deuce came to us at 6 weeks old.

He was observed to have worms and a gastro-intestinal infection, likely giardiasis, causing diarrhoea. After deworming him, we had to put him on antibiotics to cure his diarrhoea.

We hadn't blogged about him yet, as Elaine was ill at the time too, we only tweeted about him when he first arrived.

During this time, his pen mate Ziggy passed away. But by then a family had already enquired about Ziggy and had been willing to wait till she was ready for adoption. When Ziggy passed, this family decided to wait for Deuce. Yeah, they are really into black kitties, they already have 2!

While waiting for him to recover, Deuce's new prospective family went through our adoption process and finally brought him home on Sunday!

Waiting to be in a forever home...
...and Deuce is now in a forever family!
So, this report is a deuce-post indeed! - Introduce Deuce, and report his adoption, all in one post!

Deuce's new dad Chris and mum Maija will be bringing him to our vet this week for his check up and vaccination. We are so happy for Deuce and the Mead family!

Napolean is a new cat! Well, sorta...

After months of monitoring Napolean's chronic flu' carrier status we have observed that he no longer sheds a mutated flu' virus. Hurray!

Well, this was determined by the other foster cats in the home on our behalf. Cats who are immunised against the flu' or have strong immune systems do not get any flu' infection from Napolean upon close contact. He does however still show some teary eyes as part of his chronic flu' carrier status, but it does not spread to other cats as long as they are vaccinated and are not immuno-compromised in any way (very young, sick or senior). So he can go to a home with other cats!

We really, really love Napolean. He is playful but not naughty, loves hugs, loves interacting with both humans and cats of all ages. Napolean is now one year old and apart from his sometimes teary eyes and need to be segregated from the immuno-compromised, he is healthy as a young male cat should be! Neutered, dewormed, de-fleaed, litter-trained, eats both wet and dry food.

Napolean enjoying a cuddle like a boss!
Do spread the word on Napolean's updated status, for he really needs a home soon. Because we have the young and immuno-compromised in our foster home, Napolean still needs to be penned. He deserves a home he can roam around in much more. It is about time.

Sungei Kadut TNR report!

10 cats got neutered from the colony at 25-27 Sungei Kadut St 1, an industrial estate in April. Their operations were sponsored by Cat Welfare Society, and we paid for the transportation and trapping and boarding of the cats using our Sterilisation Fund.

Sungei Kadut Street 1

 Most of the cats gathered outside this warehouse and hostel.

Cats were happy to see us (food!)
2 cats, including this torbie, were already neutered
We had other happy visitors too, a stray dog. The cats didn't like him though, so we had to lure him away.

Traps were set for the cats already outside the building. Oh yeah, there were some inside the building premises that didn't want to come out, but we will get to those later.

Then we had to get inside the building to trap the aloof ones. And communicate somehow to the workers inside - don't feed the cats your leftover food, we trapping kitties here! I.e. don't "steal business" from the food inside our traps.

"We be NO want to come out. BOO."
Trapping beyond the gate. Haha kitties we are coming for you!
We waited for the remaining cats till dark. It was an extended trapping session and we finally caught all 10 cats that were spotted unsterilised.

It was getting dark and cats hid in debris

Mugshots!


The cats have since been recuperated and released back to their original site. The workers and management were all okay with the cats' presence - community cats indeed! But there was likely a problem with irresponsible feeding in the past as we saw this handmade signboard outside the building:

Basically means please keep your rubbish
So, it takes more than sterilisation to minimise cat-human interaction problems. Do feed responsibly! Take a plastic bag with you to clear up if you tend to feed in areas that have no dustbins (like this area).



Onwards to more TNR! Haig Road is next in the process - 8 cats. Our two Sterilisation Volunteers L and Ash have already gone to recce the area.

Updates

Apologies to all kitty folks for a lack of blog updates recently. Elaine has been down with a flu' virus, how kitty-like. We promise you updates soon! Some upcoming stories:


Napolean is no longer shedding a mutated flu' virus and can be rehomed to families with (vaccinated) cats! He is awfully good friends with Salmon.


TNR pictures, story and bill of Sungei Kadut TNR! Our next project after is Haig Road.


Our new arrival, Deuce. Had a bacterial infection causing diarrhoea but after a week is now recovered. One family has already asked about adopting him! We might be blogging an 'About Deuce' story with a happy ending!


Lenny completes antibiotics this week! After this, we will monitor his status to see if he is recovered fully or will be classified as a chronic flu' carrier. He also needs to be sterilised soon!


We have upcoming talks at events in July and August! Interesting, cutting-edge topics will be expounded on. Look out for our teaser ads on these events!


Will report on the above and more real soon, kitty promises!

Happy Mothers' Day to all the kitty moms out there!

Having a feline furkid ignites the maternal instinct as strongly as it does hor a human child. Cat-moms, thank you for being one.
