|Colony of unsterilised cats|
About 12 cats have been residing at this location near Bendemeer, behind a back alley of a corner coffeeshop open at night. There are feeders, but they cannot raise enough money on their own to sterilise the entire colony of cats, and have enough only to feed them nightly. We did a reconnaissance of the area one late night with the feeder to do a cat count and scope the area. We will be going down to trap the cats here over two trips to get the entire colony sterilised and thus keep their population from burgeoning and causing complaints.
Our first trapping will take place this Wednesday night, 1 October.

Why we need your help for this project:
We have 20 free sterilisation slots per month for stray cats that have been given to us by Cat Welfare Society – however – these are for residential stray cats, meaning they have to be microchipped with an HDB block number, a caregiver name and IC number. This Bendemeer back alley cat colony does not fall under this scheme, known as SCSP. Read more about the various sterilisation schemes from Cat Welfare Society, here.
To sterilise a male stray cat, it costs about $35, and a female varies from $45-65. This is excluding trapping and transport fees we have to pay our vendor, as well as the pre- and post-op boarding the cats need. If you can give to help offset our cost of this TNR project, we will be most grateful. You make a gift by depositing to our DBS current account 027-905975-3 and thereafter email us to indicate that you have given to the Sterilisation Fund.
If you cannot give, do share this project with your social circle so we can get as much help as needed to get these cats snipped, healthier and happier!
