About Us

MettaCats is a volunteer group that aims to provide care for sick and abused animals.

The word Metta means loving kindness in the Pali language and the name embodies the special bond that is shared between humans and animals.

Our History

Siew Ying

Unimpressed by how the SPCA deals with stray animals, the founder, Ms Lee Siew Ying, a clinic billings administrator, who is married and lives in Queenstown, decided to open her own animal sanctuary in 2000.

“I found a cat and three kittens that were less than a week old and the SPCA said they had to be put down because it didn’t have space for them”

– Lee Siew Ying

Our Mission

A halfway house for injured and abused strays or those recuperating from sterilisation operations. The ultimate objective is to rehome all rehabilitated cats and enable them to lead a comfortable life.

Our Present Situation

Siew Ying

We now have over 100 cats and a few dogs at MettaCats.

Our volunteers are a handful of animal lovers who invest their spare time despite their busy schedules to help the cats and dogs at MettaCats.

Some of the tasks our volunteers do on a daily basic include:

  • General house-keeping.
  • Medicating sick cats and dogs.
  • Finding homes for the animals.
  • Taking care of elderly animals during the last lap of their lives.
  • Sharing the costs of pet food, litter box sand, vet fees, rent and other costs related to the running of MettaCats.
  • Taking photographs of our animals.
  • Updating the MettaCats web site.
  • Promoting MettaCats on social networking sites like Facebook.

Our only wish is to see our animals live in a safe and happy environment where they will be cared and loved.

MettaCats adalah pertubuhan yang mempunyai misi untuk memelihara kucing yang sakit dan didera.

Perkataan “Metta’ bermakna kasih sayang dan nama yang menghubungkan ikatan istimewa antara manusia dan haiwan.

Objectif utama ialah menyediakan tempat tinggal dan rumah pemulihan bagi memberi harapan baru dalam hidup. Conseling dan perkhidmatan lanjutan juga disediakan bagi memudahkan pengambilan kucing-kucing ini.

爱心猫是为生病及被虐待的猫儿给以照顾的自愿团体。”Metta”的意思是爱心与仁慈,它连接着人类与动物间的特殊情感。其主要目的是誏所有康复的猫儿重获新家,重新点燃新的生命火花。提供咨询及跟进使领养猫儿服务更顺利。

现在有超过100只猫寄宿在爱心猫之家。 猫之家也给几只狗儿提供棲身之所。

少数的爱猫人士自愿利用他们的空闲时间给予照顾。每天的主要工作包括料理室内,喂生病的猫儿吃药和为它们寻找温暖的家。

义工们同时照顾那些将走完一生的猫儿,确保它们安逸的到最后一分钟。义工们同时负担寄宿费,购买食物和沙子,还有医药的费用。

看到猫儿复原和在猫之家开心的玩耍是给予义工们最欢欣的奖励。猫儿寻获永久温馨的家是最佳的回报。

爱心猫之家的猫和其他动物全部依赖一小部分拥有全职工作的义工们照顾,

短缺的人手愿意帮助每一只处于苦难中的猫儿,同时猫之家的空间有限。总共120只猫和几只狗依赖着他们,接收更多的猫儿将加重义工们的负担。
