We are NOT able to…..

We are not able to take in any more cats, kittens or dogs until we can rehome those that are in the shelter.

We are just a handful of volunteers, who have to work to earn a living and to care for the cats and dogs at the shelter. Many of us also have cats at home and also care for the cats in our neighbourhood.

Please refer to the CWS FAQ for information on how you can help the cats and kittens that have crossed your path or are already in your homes.


Xiao-Bai passed away of a “broken heart”

On the 20th of June, Xiao-Bai stopped eating. He was rushed to a vet who couldn’t find anything seriously wrong with him. He was treated empiricially with an antibiotic and AD cat food. However Xiao-Bai rejected forced feeding. He made noise and the fosterer figured out that he wanted to drink water from a pail. Was this what he used to do. Fosterer also bought the type of dry food that he was fed before but he still refused to eat. This morning he couldn’t lift up his head. On the way to the vet, he took his last breath at 11am.

Surprisingly, his brother, Xiao-Hei, who took a longer time to recover from the initial separation shock, is doing well. He is now separated from his brother with whom he shared 12 years of his life in one home.

Update on adopted Poppadum kittens

Patty and Lucy (formerly 2/3 of the Poppadum Kittens)

just thought to send you a picture of the girls taken in mid march.
they have since been sterilised, thanks for recommending dr kong.
we went with the clipped ears but theng (ben) immediately regretted it after seeing them after the operation.

patty is the tabby in front, i call her slinky and feisty.
and lucy is the calico at the back, super super manja, just like you predicted.

they are quite opposites, patty is so skinny people would think we never feed her, but super spirited. lucy is a big big girl, even though she eats less and is not as greedy as patty. is lizzie like that too? and lucy loves to weave between your legs as you walk, so we’re always having to be careful not to step on her. and she loves to go for your toes. patty’s tail used to have a bit of a kink in it but it’s more or less straighted out. lucy’s still kinky.

heard about the new extensions planned, it sounds wonderful. i remember when theng and i went down there and saw the puppies at the ‘kennel’ next door, they were so sad looking. theng’s having school holidays now so perhaps we can come down one day soon? see how everyone is doing? will sms you about when we can visit.
