Cute little Ebi needs a forever home!

| Contender for cutest bicolour kitten ever |

This is Ebi, sitting on a tree branch in Katong Park where Furry Photos did his photo shoot, so that he will look super gorgeous on photographs and make you want to take him home immediately. (He is wearing a leash in the photos.)

Ebi's classic "I'm pitiful!" look...


We did a caption contest for Ebi's photoshoot and here is the winning entry! 

Submitted by Charmaine
Ebi is now about 4 months old. He first came to us with a burn on his leg. After his burn wound had healed, and he went through his vaccinations, he then came down with diarrhoea. The vet did a fecal exam and found there to be no bacterial infection, so we treated him for his runny poo till he got better. And hooray he is now a-okay!

Vet checked, he's healthy now!

Active and curious




Ebi is now about 4 months old, male black and white kitten with a mid-length tail. He is litter-trained, vaccinated and de-wormed. He is able to eat both dry and wet food and drink water on his own.


Ebi's bicoloured markings

Personality-wise he is confident most of the time, daring to make friends with other cats easily even if older ones give him a hissy fit first as is the norm in catty greetings. He charms humans over with his super cute face, "I am so poor thing!" that just makes anyone's heart melt. He is vocal when he needs something, like food, and loves affection, purring away the minute you pick him up. He also listens to us humans when we tell him yes or no, and he is not overly mischievous!

"Mreow!"
(Almost) Always a good boy!

We will be back from a short break, very soon. Promise.

Sorry we haven't been around for the past 2 weeks. Human Elaine was in the hospital, and Slinky our Feline Founder fell even more ill than she already was. She has FIV.

We will resume blogging as soon as possible as Elaine needs to recover after returning from hospital also. Meanwhile, here is a little nugget on FIV:

"FIV transmission is mainly through the bloodstream and therefore is primarily passed from cat to cat through bite wounds.That explained why no one else in my cat household caught it because they never bit each other. Cats that live together don't generally bite each other hard enough to break the skin even when in rough play."

This however does not relate to foster cats as truly, because fosters are entering a new environment and with that and stress they may attack other cats. This is why we try to avoid situations where we have to take in a foster cat with FIV.

Thank you all who have gathered in a #pawcircle for Slinky on Facebook and Twitter. On her new meds, Interferon, she is eating better. Currently her weight has already dropped to 2kg only. Her liver and kidney functions are fine.

This is a reminder to all of you who have cats that are 8 years and older, their veterinary visits should be twice yearly from this age onwards. Slinky is still able to move about, use the loo, jump (slowly) and come to us for affection. Not in pain. Regular vet checks will make sure anything wrong will be caught early, not late.

Adopt: Sunkist [Photos taken by @furryphotos]

| Sunkist, 6 mths old male neutered red tabby kitten|
Sunkist came to us for rehabilitation after his rescuers found him abandoned in Marsiling with a serious eye infection. He was taken to the vet and hospitalised.

When first rescued

When he came to us his eye was still red. We continued his medication regime. Today his eye is no longer infected, but there is still some residual scarring that is visible up close. He however sees perfectly well and has no need for medication any more.

His scarred eye, close up
As of today, he is 25 weeks old, litter-trained, has all his booster shots done (sponsored by Shela), dewormed, on Revolution, neutered - he sports a slightly tipped ear now, and healthy and vet-checked.

Thinking of mischief?
Sunkist is a very active kitten who is playful and full of energy. He may get into mischief but responds to discipline as all our foster cats do (they have to)! He gets along well with other kittens, especially Ebi, who is also for adoption. He also interacts well with older cats. When he is in the mood he loves hugs too!

Sunkist and Ebi at the end of their photoshoot
He has a mid-length tail, tabby markings are mackarel, and has a white chin.

Here is the entire collection of the photos Furry Photos took of Sunkist at Katong Park last week:

Selegie TNR round 1 report

On Sunday we went to Selegie to conduct a round of TNR for the stray cat colony there. It was fruitful; we trapped 8 kitties to send to the clinic. We are going again today at 5pm to conduct the 2nd round of trapping for the remaining stray cats there. So look forward to another report after this one!

Sunday's weather was a bit ominous but turned out to be dry when we went there, thankfully. Which meant that the cats weren't all in hiding and were easily trapped.

The cats were gathered around the perimeter of a substation, and as instructed to the feeders, were not fed for the day so were all waiting there instead of hiding.

Back of the substation
Front of the substation, their main feeding point
Quite clean, wouldn't you agree? The feeders are very responsible ones who clear up after feeding. They also help negotiate complaints to the town council regarding cats. Main complaints though, are still as usual about indoor cats that are allowed to roam, disturbing neighbours that live on high floors - not the fault of the stray cats at all.

The feeders used to do the sterilisation, so there are some already tipped-ear cats around. Unfortunately their previous trapper stopped answering their calls when they needed to sterilise more. And so the population kept growing, until they could no longer afford to sterilise them all.

None of the cats are friendly enough to be touched, and so transporting them to the vet without trapping services is out of the question.

Preparing the traps
Traps laid, cats lured by the food within
A lot of the kitties we trapped were kittens that just hit maturity, so the timing we went was really apt. Here are the 8 cats we trapped. They return to their territory today.

There are about 4-6 cats still needing to be sterilised at this spot. Also, about 2-4 across the road:

We will be there this evening at 5pm, look out for our updates on Twitter and Instagram on site (@luvkuching) and we will report the total bills for this Selegie TNR project once we have completed. If you would like to give to this TNR project, deposit into our bank account POSB savings 188-52652-7, write us an email at elaine@lovekuchingproject.org to state that you wish to give to our Sterilisation Fund. Thank you in advance!

Righto, see you later Selegie cats!
