A heartwarming bird story

On 16th October 2019, I received this email from a kind young man, Kim Wee:

I got your contact from your book “Pawprints on my heart.” I am writing to you because I am in need of help to rescue a bird and its eggs. The bird, which looks like a quail, built its nest […]

A CNRM-cat at the National Zoo!

Koo and his family went to the National Zoo yesterday and spotted a CNRM-cat!

He shared these photos:

See the ear-notch?

It gives us great hope whenever we spot ear-notched animals on the street and in public places.

It tells us that someone is neutering these animals, […]

Many, many animals are perishing in the fires.

Please read how the fires started: https://www.latimes.com/environment/story/2019-08-25/amazon-rainforest-fires-climate

Instead of axes and machetes, people now use bulldozers and giant tractors with chains to pull down the Amazon’s towering trees. A few months later, they torch the trunks. It’s the only realistic way to remove such huge amounts of […]

Good colonies make good neighbours

CNRM requires much more work than just feeding and neutering. It calls for diplomacy and problem-solving skills to preserve good neighbourliness in order to have good and safe colonies for the animals.

This is why we stress so much on the C=Care and M=Manage components.

A successful CNRM project (a sharing by Lee Chin Siang)

Mr Lee used to claim from us for the neutering of the cats in his CNRM colony. Now, his colony is more or less stabilised with 11 cats at the back of his house and 3 in front.

Here is a photo of the happy cats:

Feeding time in the morning, not all present […]

Sterilizing 75% of the cat community – it works!

Here is another study: https://news.ufl.edu/2019/08/does-sterilizing-stray-cats-work/

Pertinent points:

A collaboration between cat welfare advocates, veterinary scientists and wildlife biologists suggests that when sterilization efforts reach 75% of the colony, overall numbers will decrease over time, while preventable cat deaths can be reduced more than 30-fold.

What is the worst thing communities can do?

The worst thing […]
