SAD NEWS of ELBA & sibling #ALBAmcds

ALBA & ELBA were adopted on 21 Sep 2020.

The fairy tale ended on 7 Nov 2020 as the adopter was not too happy with siblings’ rivalry and had requested to return one.

Then the adopter decided to return both cats due to “some personal reason”.

He apologised to Terry and expressed that, “He thinks they are not good cat parents after all.”

ALBA came home to in a Carrier and ELBA in an IKEA bag 🙀😿

Their story:

2 April 2019: Terry recounts the rescue of ALBA & ELBA:
“This is the fellow ( who approached us to take the two Dempsey cats; Alba and Elba. He refused to tell us who gave him our number. We got Lynda to contact him.
His story was that the curator of the then closing museum of contemporary art abandoned these cats. He introduced himself as a private jet salesman and he was feeding these two since the museum was getting demolished.
A very blunt person, was very fixated on where our shelter was and kept asking if we knew the cat museum lady personally because he couldn’t contact her with regards to the rescuing of these cats.
Mum and I went down personally to collect them. He didn’t know how to handle then and then showed us what he fed them : microwaved eggs, dog treats and food scraps mixed into a bowl with some sort of instant soup base.
I asked if they could be handled, he wasn’t sure. I got a long scratch from Alba (xxl size) while trying to coax them into the cages.
These two were also the last two cats my mum (Siew Ying) personally went down to pick up with me.”
