Kittens need homes (Singapore based)

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.

    The problem with the strays in SG is not the cats but the people who keep feeding them. I have 40+ (yes, that is a correct estimate) strays in my area within a 500-meter radius from my home and I know most of them by sight, they have their own groups, and are fed by at least three different people throughout the day. What is more some of them are “protected” by a collar these same people put on a few, so as to stop them being neutered and stuff.

    I can understand why they would do that, but they are not thinking of the hygiene problems and possible future problems. I do not mind that much, but others would.

    Too bad I cannot keep a cat either.

    Agree with you but so far from i notice the stray cats of my house area, the population of the cats are constant for few years even thought there is kind soul feeding them everyday. I think its not there is no new born kittens but the adult cats not bother to take care of them. Saw a few times the new born kittens are left alone, some the eyes not even fully open yet. =(

    As per Panther’s situation, it is made complicated by parties concerned whose strong religious beliefs refused the spaying/neutering of animals out of fear of cruelty towards them (either karma or God’s retribution).

    Understandably so, however, the feral cat population are more pronounced at older, more mature residential estates where such faiths are more heavily defended. It takes time for education and mindset to change, so unfortunately I cannot say much for these estates. Granted, newer estates do have stray cats, but not as more pampered and more belligerent as the older ones. (Trust me, I have been to Panther’s home estate, and the stray cat population there is beyond my comprehension.)

    While this is generating interesting discussion, I do hope the news about these kittens might spread to potential homes for them :3 (Panther thanks for helping me retweet when I tweeted about it earlier)
