SINGAPORE: The festive season is well over, but animal welfare volunteers are still dealing with the aftermath of "pet spring-cleaning". The number of abandoned pets saw its usual spike over the year-end period. Activists say the yearly numbers are not coming down. 150 cats were abandoned in three months, from November 2012 to January 2013. These were just cases that were reported to the Cat Welfare Society, so the real numbers are likely to be higher.

Cat Welfare 2010

CWS: A Look Ahead

Cat Welfare Society has had a solid month of fundraising with the LPN Cat Day at Suntec City, the Cat’s Night Out “In Search of the Most Beautiful Domestic Cat” at Jurong Point and that unforgettably tongue-in-cheek STrip “What’s New Pussycat?” campaign. Besides raising funds for stray sterilisation, these light-hearted occasions gave us a rare chance to let our hair down with other cat groups, volunteers and with the public. Now the fun is over, it is time to get back down to the serious business of cat welfare.
