Heart breaking story of Ema here ;_; (photos of Ema borrowed from FSC’s flickr)
FSC is a long time friend of mine, who used to be a quiet shy being who loves drawing beyond anyone I ever know. Now a serious cat lover and travelling artist, FSC’s family already have a few cats in their home — all rescued :3
I would imagine they would want to keep Ema, but maybe they’re reaching a limit to be able to let their cats live comfortably without brawls and stress to the cats ^^;
Not too long ago after I heard about Ema the kitty, I saw a flickr friend looking for homes for some rescued kittens as well, also based in Singapore.
Our Ginko and Yoshi were from a no-kill shelter, we still visit the shelter time to time and there’s always plenty of cats, waiting to find their “forever home”. I think people in general need to be aware of the trap nueter release method to keep feral cat population under control, despite that kittens/cats are so cute ^^;
photo below taken at shelter sometime last year, when it’s kitten season ^^; I remember these adorable beans were newly rescued and were so painfully adorable!
I think Singapore has a lot of stray cats, and sometimes the government cull the cats =_= but the root of the problem is still being that the strays are generally not neutered or spayed so they will keep multiplying. I hear that there are cat lovers who trap the cats and release them after neutering, but I would imagine it being difficult to do it without assistance/awareness.
