  • Birdy’s flying lessons (Day 3 evening)

    Birdy is wrapped in tissue paper before each feeding session so that they sweat of my palm will not make her wet. The tissues have to be changed or added on because she flicks off access food. It’s not easy to get the amount “exactly right”. So, it’s good that Birdy shakes off whatever that’s…

  • Birdy was attacked but is fine now (Day 3 noon)

    We heard a sudden loud noise. One of the cats (could be Minnie or Smurfy) went up and brought Birdy’s whole carrier tumbling down onto the floor (luckily it wasn’t very high). The carrier door fell off and Birdy’s tissue box also fell out. Luckily, it was upside down, so Birdy was still inside. By…

  • Birdy communicates with her family (Day 3 morning)

    Birdy had breakfast at about 7.30am this morning and then, it was a trip out to the garden again. I decided not to increase the amount of food, but instead, play it by ear to gauge how much Birdy wants to eat. With the carrier door totally detached, Birdy decided to remain inside but she…

  • Birdy flaps her wings (Day 2 evening) and the kittens’ news

    It’s almost 7pm and Birdy has had 5 meals so far. I’ve also increased the amount a wee bit each time but I am learning to let Birdy call the shots when she has had enough. It’s a learning curve as today is only Day 2. Before feeding – warming her up first. The birds…

  • Birdy wants to fly (Day 2)

    I woke up this morning, and went to check on Birdy. She was sitting down in her tissue box. I quickly fed all the cats first. Nowadays, it’s three feeding venues. The kitchen first, then the Greystoke kittens and finally, Bunny’s Place. Then came the bird-feeding session. I pounded some of the pellets and made…

  • The rescue of Birdy, in a house of 14 cats

    Late yesterday evening, Minnie spotted a baby bird on the grass. Luckily Minnie was inside Stargate2 while the baby bird was outside of it. We managed to catch the baby bird, now named Birdy, and put her into a box. I’d never been successful in caring for injured birds before this, so I quickly went…

  • A rehoming of a pet dog, Snoopy, who fears thunderstorms

    I received an urgent request a few days ago from a lady. The issue is that her pet dog became very fearful of thunderstorms and would react rather “aggressively” by destroying her front door and the netting on it. Her dog was acting out of fear, which isn’t uncommon in dogs and cats. The main…

  • Mun Mun’s rescue of the 7 puppies (a success!)

  • The rescue and rehoming of 2 kittens (Marcus Wong’s)

    Yesterday, I received an urgent email from Marcus Wong. Marcus had been taking care of two kittens, already neutered and vaccinated too. They were community kittens in his neighbourhood.  There are only eight community cats in his area and the gardener helps to take care of them. He even told the residents that two are…

  • Another great rescue (from Soi Chee)

    My friend, Soi Chee, who used to be a dog-person, has now become quite the cat-person! Here is another rescue from her, or rather, from her domestic helper. Soi Chee’s story: Lately cats have been entering  into my life , no idea why and how …they keep coming to me. I rescued a few ……
