Recently, as a Gotcha Day treat, Mama took me to an animal shelter run by the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). The location of the premises in Ampang Jaya is only about half an hour drive from home.
We met up with Aunty Ee who volunteers at the shelter, had breakfast with her at a nearby stall before visiting. Aunty Ee is a legal eagle by profession, an animal and environment champion by passion. If only there are more hoomans like her....check out her blog www.covertoperations78.blogspot.com.
I must say what I saw was a sobering reality check. Made me realise how lucky I really am, as well as Angelina and Tom as we all belong to that not so rare breed - the rescued breed. What you are going to see next can make you cry. Beware!!!
|These felines are newly rescued....this is the first "scenery" that greeted us at the main entrance.|
|These lovelies should still be feeding from their momma....I think they're about the same age as I was when I was rescued.|
|Look at those blue eyes...wouldn't you want to take him home?|
|There are two of the blue-eyed gingers and they share a cage with a long-haired beauty.|
|I'm guessing this poor pure breed was abandoned coz the owner didn't know how to take good care of him....|
|We then moved on to another side of the shelter, which is the cattery where the earlier arrivals are kept. I saw a sign that says there's going to be a Jumble Sale on July 31st. Hmmm...must take note of that.|
|This tabby was trying hard persuading Mama to take her home....I was miffed at first but then thought better of it. She needs TLC too.|
|Another tabby trying to get Mama's attention. Hmmm....you know how fond Mama is of tabbies...|
|Ouch! Is that how I look when I do my "business"????|
|I lost count of the number of cats at the cattery. There are so many....|
|Looks like an interesting corner at the cattery....for those who like to climb and rest on high places I guess.|
|Important notices are also put up at the cattery.|
|I was told some people have aversion for black cats...I wonder why...|
|Hmmm...who does this blue-eyed beauty reminds me of? Hmmm.....someone I know well at home!|
