The Camera Garage· 2 hrs ·  A Tribute to a wonderful lady… Ms Lee Siew Ying .

In a little sanctuary for unwanted animals at Lim Chu Kang, Auntie Siew Ying, founder of Metta Cats dedicated her life and her time to all the animals after work every day, and on weekends, despite the heat, and her asthma.

Trust me, it’s absolutely not easy!! You need to feed them, bathe them and the most SIONG part… cleaning the cages. By the time you’re done with the 20th cage, the first one is dirty again. She rarely leaves before midnight. In fact 95% of the time she ended up sleeping there. Her actions and commitment is undeniable.

Auntie Siew Ying not only took in the unwanted pets, she even went to the extent of rescuing strays. I’m sure her departure is a great loss to many of us.

I know she’s in a better place now, where there’s no worries and sufferings. And I’m sure she’ll be there taking care of the cats and doggies in heaven.

Auntie Siew Ying…

If we could bring you back again,
For one more day,
We’d express all our unspoken love;
We’d have countless things to say.

If we could bring you back again,
We’d say we treasured you,
And that your presence in our lives
Meant more than we ever knew.

If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should,
You’d know how much we miss you now,
And if we could, we would.

Terry…. I pray that our Lord brings your family the much-needed peace during this sad time.

My condolences to you and your family…

Update on Woodie

"Come what may." I tend to live each day like it is my last. Not many things can unnerve me. But on a beautiful sunny Spring day ten days ago, being told that the perfectly healthy Boss Cat has a bone cancer on the spinal cord that leaves him paralyzed, being told to put him down in two days, my world imploded. It brought me down to my knees, suffocated by a desperate sense of hopelessness. It has been ten days, and you are hanging on. Each day is a small miracle for me. But it don't matter what the future brings. Boss Cat and I, we share the same bloodline. Ride or die, we leave it all on the line. Born wild, and we die proud. Boss Cat's life is a love story. He fell down a ten-story building at the age of three and should have been dead. A small miracle. When no one claimed him at the local vet, they were forced to put him down. A kind-hearted lady came to adopt him and saved him with thirty minutes to spare. Siew Ying runs a local cat shelter in Singapore with more than 200 pets. We are forever indebted to her kindness. At the age of 7, Boss Cat sneaked out of the house and got lost for 24 hours. A stranger saw our call for help on Facebook and went to look for him and found him dazed and scared hiding under a car. Again, the kindness of strangers. The kindness of human beings. I will not miss you when you are gone. Instead, I will make you proud. No one enjoys life more than Boss Cat. It don't take much to make you happy. Long naps, belly rubs, and just rolling around under the sun. The highest level of enlightenment: finding bliss in the now. Life is not about how long you live, but how well you live. And no one does bliss better than Boss Cat.
