Finding Jacey was a catalyst to spark off the intervention needed in this area for its stray cat population.
There is a sponsor for this area that is willing to sterilise the stray cats here at her own cost, but she lacked the manpower to trap, so now we have a match. Also, with the input from other Joo Chiat folks like our reader Melissa, we have a more complete picture of the unmet needs in feeding and sterilisation for this area.
After piecing together some information we have a rudimentary map:
More on the areas we will be targeting for trapping-sterilisation. If you live in this area and would like to help, here are a number of ways:
- Feeding the cats in the areas which are not covered by the two feeders
- Help to educate the neighbours and shopkeepers that cats help to chase pests away, so that they will not try to get rid of the cats in an inhumane way
- Help us on the nights leading up to the trapping we will be carrying out in February, by joining us on the cat-hunt on the night of the trapping.
