Pretty Peyton from SPCA [@SPCA_sg]

As part of our ongoing rehabilitation of sick or injured cats from SPCA, we received Peyton on 18 September.

Peyton is a stray cat rescued by SPCA from Novena area, found with wounds on her abdomen. She also had fur mites (mange). She is a pretty semi-longhaired girl who is quite greedy and vocal.

She was given a course of Clavulox antibiotics and we had to apply topical medication for her as well. Right now her mange fur loss is much better already, and her tummy wounds have scabbed over. She has completed her oral meds, and we are applying the meds on her tummy still. She is also on supplements for pain and healing, including vitamin B, curcumin and omega 3.

We will return her to SPCA when her wound is 100% healed. SPCA will get her neutered (she has no tipped ear or tattoo) and possibly rehome her, else return her to Novena area where she was.

We will post her progress on our social media channels, follow us to follow her journey to full recovery!

TNR tomorrow morning 8am near Changi Road

At a building near Eunos that used to be an orphanage, there is a colony of stray cats. A lady who feeds strays nearby has been popping over every day to feed them, but has been unable to sterilise all of them. Some are already eartipped, the rest, like this queen who who looks like she recently gave birth, are unsterilised, with no hopes of getting fixed. Her kittens are nowhere to be found.

Here is where we, and you, come in. Tomorrow morning, we are going to trap for sterilisation, about 6 cats in this ex-orphanage and nearby back alley.



The alley adjoining the building houses shops and residences, tenants of which are not all keen on cats. One is an avid complainant, and has been hostile to our suggestions of putting up meshing to prevent cats from going indoors. We advised the feeder to feed further away from the people who tend to complain about the cats.



The sterilisation will make the cats better urban wildlife neighbours, and especially for the unsterilised toms, prevent them from using the shop backdoors as places to mark territory with their pee. When sterilised, male cats either completely stop spraying, or, even if it has become a habit, the smell is not as pungent. There will also be less fights of course!

The empty orphanage is now state land, which means that the cats are safe staying there for now. State land buildings very rarely require pest control action, and AVA cannot access the building without seeking approval. Until URA has slated redevelopment of the site, there is no signs of dangerous construction in the immediate future either.


What you can do:
We need funds to sterilise the 6 cats we have identified for TNR. The 6 cats are in the photographs above, and look to be 4 females and 2 males. According to the feeder there are actually more but on two separate recces we only spotted the total of these 6. We hope to get all of them tomorrow morning.

The sterilisation will cost $30 for a male cat and range $45-65 for female cats. The trapping and transport will cost a total of $80 and boarding for pre- and post-op at $5 per cat. This brings the projected expense for this TNR to be $280.

If you wish to give to our Sterilisation Fund which is slated specifically for TNR expenses, you can deposit to our POSB savings account, no. 188-52652-7 and thereafter email us to indicate that you have given a gift for the Sterilisation Fund. If you need a receipt you can request for one to be mailed to you by regular post.


Thank you for your support. Here are some photos of cats already sterilised at this site, and we can soon add to the number of eartipped kitties:

Where there is a fence preventing human entry, always feed cats outside
One of the the two seal cross-Siamese, the older one, is sterilised
One of the friendly sterilised females
From outside, saw beautiful sterilised silver and blue kitties, shy to come out
NB: You may notice some of these cats have flea dermatitis, tomorrow we will bring some flea repellent medication for the cats who are willing to let us touch them.

Gale from Geylang is now Abigail in Woodlands

Gale, the youngest of the Geylang Lor 40 kittens, got adopted on Sunday!

Her new mommy is none other than Celine who also recently adopted Cubby (now Moonshine). It was a good move because Moonshine had already started getting very spoiled by her family!



So far Abigail has already warmed up to her mom and spent nights cuddling her to sleep. Gale has always been quite a lap cat in between play, running about and climbing.

Thank you for giving Abigail a forever home!

2 Hougang stray kitties









Here are Luo Han Guo (monk fruit) and Petite from Hougang, two stray cats that needed critical veterinary attention but did not have the funds for help. We stepped in and got them to the vet.

Luo Han Guo previously suffered an abscess that burst and required stitches. Because his caregivers did not have the funds to get him surgery, his abscess got worse. He is now on antibiotics and surgery has been scheduled for 17 Sept.

His caregiver was able to foster him before his surgery and will also do the same for his post-surgical rehabilitation before he returns to the streets.

We hope his surgery will be successful; the vet is worried that because the wound is large, stitches may not hold. Post-surgical recovery will be critical. We have provided his caregiver with supplements to help him recover as well as he can.




Petite was found not eating well and presented signs of gum disease. Upon examination at the vet, it was found she had gingivitis, and was given antibiotics and steroids. She was then rehabilitated at her caregiver's home till she got better and had been able to. She is now back at her territory and eating again. She will probably need pain and inflammation management over the long term, so we made sure we got enough meds to help tide her over should she stop eating again.


Know of stray cats whose feeders/caregivers are unable to fork out funds for emergency veterinary care? Contact Elaine at 90880675 / elaine@lovekuchingproject.org. Even if we cannot foster the cats ourselves, we can help get them started on veterinary care if you are able to foster them.

Mother cat Celine from Choa Chu Kang

Celine is a cat that was abandoned as a kitten in Choa Chu Kang, and before her caregivers, (two of our Foster Care Volunteers Rashid and Diana) could neuter her, she gave birth. Her pregnancy was barely noticeable because she is still a kitten herself, and is very small-sized. Her kittens were found to have flu' and one was in respiratory distress. They came to our foster home when the kittens were about 10 days old.


After cleaning and medicating their eyes and administering medication and supplements, they improved. Initially they were sneezing and some had eyes that were shut by dried puerile discharge. They are now much better as they continue receiving antibiotics.







Thankfully, the birth made Celine a much friendlier mother to her caregivers, she was initially not keen on human contact. We will be neutering her after the kittens are weaned. The kittens will eventually be dewormed and vaccinated and made available for adoption when they are about 8 to 9 weeks old. We have not named them yet, so keep a lookout for what we will be calling these furbabies by following us on our social media streams.
