We are going paperless and going green (new e-forms)!

We are going paperless and going green!

These are our new e-forms for the application of our neutering aid and vaccination aid.  Everything is submitted online now (including the receipt, photo collages and required write-up).

Should you need any help in filling them out, please contact me at chankahyein@gmail.com.

Let’s go green to save the planet! No more paper forms. No more having to post hardcopy receipts or forms to us. No more having to wait for the mails to arrive.

Now, we’ll just be inconveniencing a couple of electrons each time you make an application.

 

There are 3 sections to be filled.

I’d like to record my thanks to our dear friend, Maslinda AT, for her patience in helping me create these forms!

 

Jayden and Ginger’s first order of the day

As the say, “First things first”.

The first thing that Jayden does when he comes every morning (that is if he doesn’t stay overnight) is to check his books and business ledgers at his office.

You simply cannot find a better and more dedicated CEO, right? It’s Sunday and Baby J is hard at work first thing in the morning.

And so is Ginger. Ginger would quickly take up position as Baby J’s bodyguard and back rest. Ginger never fails to do his duty. Again, you cannot ask for a better bodyguard. Ginger doesn’t even get paid, whether in cash or kind. He just does his duty.

The job is done, now…for some adventure!

Look! Tabs found a new home!

Both Ginger and Tabs recovered very quickly from their recent ailments. Ginger had his dental and was already eating well the moment he came back from the vet’s even though he gave the vet a scare when he started retching under anaesthesia during the procedure. Tabs also got well from the mysterious what-did-she-eat stomach disorder in just 2-3 days.

Who is the new resident?

He is actually not new.

He’s been around for months.

And he has dual citizenship – both at Bunny’s Place and Ginger’s Catio, plus a passport to travel out to the garden compound.

But he actually prefers to chill out with the cats most of the time.

So, who is this privileged person?

It is Toad.

Toad (yes, he is a toad and his name is, simply, Toad) lives in Ginger’s Catio and Bunny’s Place. He has free access because he is so small and can go through Stargate easily (even without a passport). But it isn’t illegal entry because he has citizenship in both places. All the cats accept him and lives in harmony with him even though I suspect he isn’t born in either place, but there is no concept of “pendatang” here. Our cats may fight among each other, but they are somehow very kind to Toad. Maybe they granted him refugee status? I don’t really know.

This morning, Toad went into Bunny’s Room and was a bit lost.

We had to take him back out with the help of the dustpan.

I actually watched Toad growing up from a tiny little thing to his adult size now. He often resides in the sandpit (yes, I don’t know why, but he likes it there; the sand camouflages him) and when I clean the sandpit, he jumps up. In the early morning, it is dark, so it is hard to see him. But I use a plastic scoop, so there is no danger of accidentally hurting him.

Wild animals – geniuses at surviving the cold

Wild animals are geniuses. Period.

Fundraising: Food aid for two shelters

Our Food Aid to shelters was revived in October 2018 and intensified during the MCO because shelters were facing difficulties in raising funds. At that time, especially during the MCO, neutering claims dropped significantly and we also had some reserves, so we decided to channel these excess funds to provide food to shelters.

In doing so, we noticed that some donors were happy to donate specifically for food and rightly so since shelters will always need food for their animals.

We have been providing food aid to several shelters since 2018 and for this month, we would like to fundraise to provide food to two shelters: Imm’s Shelter in Ipoh and Survivor Shelter in Semenyih. Both are small shelters with about 50 animals each and most importantly, both are run by operators who care deeply for their animals. Sick animals are sent for veterinary care and those with terminal diseases are also given tender loving care until it is time to go. Both shelters do not have any publicity on social media. Please see below for photos.

If you would like to donate for the purpose of this food aid, we would appreciate your generosity very much. Please state in your bank-in that it is for the food aid. If any general donation is made, as always, it will be prioritised for neutering and any excess will be channeled to the Food Aid.

Here are our bank account details and we thank you in advance for your kindness:

Imm’s Shelter

Imm’s Shelter was founded by Mdm Oei Phaik Imm. She is well into her seventies now. She is assisted by Judy Chua (also in her seventies) and Judy sends a complete accounting of how donations are used every 1-2 months to all donors through email. The shelter was destroyed by a heavy thunderstorm last year and they had to use up all their reserves for repairs and renovations. We first extended our help to Imm’s Shelter way back in March 2011 so we do go back a long, long way. The dogs and cats at Imm’s are cared for very lovingly by Imm, Judy and all their volunteers. The shelter currently has 26 dogs and 15 cats. Two dogs are undergoing treatment for tick fever at the vet’s.

Survivor Shelter

Survivor Shelter was founded by Ms Ong Siew Hiang who is a dog rescuer. The shelter currently has 48 dogs, most of whom are her personal rescues over the years and some were sent in by friends. Ms Ong works as a hawker through the night, selling burgers at a foodcourt to earn enough to sustain her shelter. She has a very dedicated worker who manages the shelter and looks after all the dogs. The worker reports to Ms Ong if any dog is sick and Ms Ong will arrange for a pet taxi to take the dog(s) to the vet. At the moment, a dog is under veterinary treatment for paralysis. The prognosis is good as the vet said it is a nerve problem which can be treated with medication. All her dogs are de-ticked and treated (if ill) before entering the shelter to ensure that diseases (if any) will not spread to the other dogs.

Good boy, Rey

It sure looks like Rey’s application for permanent residence status in Bunny’s Place has been approved by Bunny et al.

He climbs over every single day without fail and practically lives in Bunny’s Place.

However, when it comes to lunch time (the Seniors and Super Seniors have lunch, but the Juniors only eat twice a day), Rey is amazing.

Rey knows the Super Seniors are having lunch, he even sits close by sometimes and yet, he does not snatch anyone’s food. He doesn’t even ask for food. Is it because Rey is not hungry (the Juniors eat a truckload of raw food for breakfast), or is it because Rey has such self-discipline and respect for rules? We will never know.

You are such a good boy, Rey!

Here are Smurfy, Lynx and Robin at the catio.

Thank you very much (September 2022 donors)

It’s time to thank all supporters and donors for their generosity and goodwill.

Donations have dwindled, and understandably so since times are bad now. If donations continue to decrease, we may have to consider the option of reducing our food aid since the food aid had always been a stopgap measure to channel excess funds and reserves. We will go back to our primary mission of providing aid for One-Street CNRM neutering which has been so since Day One. Even the vaccination aid was also a stopgap measure for excess funds and so was the medical fund which we ran many years ago until we closed it in January 2015.

Eventually, it will always fall back onto our primary mission – to aid in the neutering of street animals as this would be the most compassionate way to control the street population. It took the Netherlands 200 years to achieve zero stray dog status and that was done through neutering-and-return-to-colony supported by the government and citizens (do we have the support of the government in this – no, and the support of the citizens – only a tiny handful). Still, the Netherlands could not achieve zero stray cat as cats are simply so much more resilient and well…cats are meant to stay and do what they want, not what we want! So, their government totally supports and even sponsors the neutering-and-return of street cats. Kudos to them!

And where are we in our quest? In our infancy. But at least we are doing something, right? We have done this for 13 years now, and we hope to continue doing it for as long as we can, with your kind support, of course.

Jayden, Ginger and cat instincts

There is no doubt that Jayden’s best friend is Ginger.

Jayden saying hello to Minnie-5 through the screen door.

Jayden hatching a scheme with Ginger on how to let Minnie-5 into the house.

You know how it is that cats just know when you are going to return home from a grocery-trip out about 5-10 minutes before you reach home? Well, believe it or not, Jayden knows too! The other day I was out on a grocery-run and about 5-10 minutes before my car reached the porch, all the cats were on the alert and were positioned at Stargate2 to wait for me, and so was Jayden. He must have learnt this cat instinct from Ginger!

I think before babies can talk, their instincts are similarly sharp, like a cat’s!

More so if your best friend IS a cat, right?

Aww…
