    ok this map sucks... but this is where the cat is at... the RED DOT

    if you want to help the poor soul,

    you see that red dot on that map? walk from city link.. up to the one raffle link and up again to marina there. you will see the way to marina sq is close. and you have to go to this BIG detour to marina sq... it is just at there... ok when you see this BIG ball on the floor like it is surpoting the building it is around there.... or there is a self-make door for the workers beside You see can this 4 pillars at the right side.

    hi,
    my heart hurts seeing this poor kitten..

    no point calling the spca.. it will be picked up and PTS (put to sleep) cuz of their sad circumstance. (overcrowded and limited resources) this cat aint no pedigree, the chances of it getting adopted is virtually zero, plus its supposed broken leg, no one really wants a handicapped pet.. its usually "i want a cute, white, fluffy, healthy kitten... "

    the best thing anyone can do for this kitty is to :
    (1) pick it up and send it to the vet for further examinations.. of cuz this option is not an easy one cuz of the heavy vet fees that may follow (but u could always appeal to people around u to help pool the funds, something i did with the teachers in my school for a dying stray cat)

    (2) nurse the kitten back to health if u can afford to keep it with u, else find it a foster home

    (3) once the kitten is ok, find the kitten a permanent home (ie. if u havent already fell in love with it and too attached to let it go)

    (4) if u cant keep the kitten for whatever reasons, the next alternative is to keep it in a shelter, with a monthly fee (PM me if u need further details)

    poor kitty.. chances are its hurt.. and will not be able to defend itself or find any food.. it may drag itself around if the hind leg is really broken.. i pray and hope that a kind soul will pick it up soon and do the best for it..

    Rescue considerations


    We have been getting a few requests for reimbursements for treatment of cats for a variety of problems. The Society generally does not reimburse and right now, with the clinic coming up, we have to be even more careful with the money we spend.

    I realise that a lot of people understandably want to save every cat out there, especially people who are fairly new to rescue work. They are kind souls who are trying to do everything to save every cat, but the sad truth is that not every cat can be saved.

    This is a really difficult decision to make and everyone of course has to come to a decision that they can live with, all of which are deserving of respect as long as the cat's welfare is always paramount. I believe however there are several factors to consider when the cat is being rescued/saved (leaving aside religious beliefs) :-

    1. What sort of life will the cat lead after - will it be able to sleep/eat/play and live a normal life? This could include cats with various handicaps who are able to still live normally and not be subject to a life of perpetual suffering after;

    2. Where will the cat go? Is the caregiver going to take it in? I wrote earlier about how hard it is to find adoptive homes - for handicapped/injured/sick cats, multiply that by ten. If the cat is for example, an abuse case going back on the street again only to get abused or killed, then what is the point? The cat has to be taken in by the caregiver and if they are not prepared to do so, then the chances of finding the cat a permanent home are very slim;

    3. What is the best course of treatment for the cat? This depends on what the vet suggests - and the vet is the best person to advice you on the course of treatment;

    4. Is the caregiver able to give appropriate medical care? I've seen caregivers unable to properly look after kittens and cats, take in even more rescue cases only to have most of them die because of pre-existing diseases within their homes which they do not have the resources to treat. A life on the streets is definitely better than almost certain death in these homes;

    5. Can the caregiver afford medical treatment? Again taking in a cat that you cannot afford to treat means the cat is going to suffer and die. In addition to the cost of paying for that cat, the opportunity cost is saving many more cats out there. For example, if you spend $1000 on one cat, you could have sterilised at least 20 cats. These 20 cats will then not reproduce. They will be less likely to get cancers and FIV and FELV - they will not spread it on to any offspring, which means that you will actually be saving far more than 20 cats. Unfortunately finances are finite - and as with everything else, resources do have to be allocated in the most efficient manner.

    This is why I firmly believe that maximum allocation of resources to sterilisation is the best way of saving the most number of cats. If everyone sterilises, we WILL make a dent and less cats will have to die every year.

    looks like its really injured!!

    help by all means but oso look out 4 urself. it may attack an unwitting person if tt person cause it more pain. moving d injured part of d body may aggreviate its pain & worsen its current condition.

    sorry Furrypaws, IMO picking it up may not b an ideal suggestion on some occasions. wad 2 do 2 help ease its pain will vary from case - case.

    jus to spread more awareness

    What if I find an injured or sick cat? Can I bring the cat to you?

    We do not have a vet clinic. None of us are licensed to treat sick animals. Please bring the cat to the nearest vet clinic to be looked at by a vet.

    For a list of vets, please to go www.sva.org.sg or to www.yellowpages.com.sg and look under veterinarians.

    Can you come down and pick up the cat if I find a sick/injured cat?

    There are two reasons why we cannot do this. Firstly and most importantly, sick or injured cats often go into hiding. If these cats are not caught and brought down to the vet by the person who sees the cat, there is a good chance that the cat will be gone by the time CWS volunteers go down. Secondly, we simply donít have enough manpower to pick up every injured cat. Almost all our volunteers are working full time. If you are unable to pick up the cat for some pressing reason, drop us an email, and if we have a volunteer in the area, weíll ask if they can assist.

    Remember though that time is of essence -- every minute that is wasted deciding whether to pick up the cat may be the minute that could save that catís life.

    We can arrange for a subsidized rate for treatment if you email us at info@catwelfare.org.

    I have just seen a cat which has been abused. What should I do?

    If the cat is injured, please bring it to the vet immediately for medical treatment. While you are there, please tell the vet that you suspect that the cat has been abused and that you would like the vet to give you a written report. Photographs would be particularly useful as evidence. Please bring the evidence down to the police post and lodge a police report.

    If the cat is dead, please take photographs of the body or bring the body down to your nearest police post. DO NOT throw the body away without taking photos. If you do throw the body away, evidence is lost. Even if you donít know who the abuser is, you can still file a report. This may not be an isolated case, and itís a good idea to have it on record in case the abuser is ever found.

    Please let us know if any such cases of abuse occur. We also have a reward fund for abuse -- drop us an email at info@catwelfare.org to find out more.
