C, the liaison officer for the community cats in our area called to say that 5 cats from blk *** had disappeared. She and a few others were there to trap them for neutering tomorrow and they could not even find one kitty! SY from mcats said that the cats were not about even before the National Day week!! If the cats were sent to the AVA by some seeming 'good samaritan', there is no way that the cats are even alive now - 2 weeks too late. Sy also told me that there used to be an animal hoarder who took in many cats and of course they did not survive that experience but she was not able to find out anything more about the woman. The only good news was that C was able to trap 2 cats some weeks before who are now in foster homes. But it is bad news all around :(
PS: GOOD NEWS
C smsed again yesterday at about 1030 to tell me that she finally found them. I am glad that the kitties are wiser now not to draw attention to themselves and would hide from people. It seems that even Sy has not been able to see them when she went looking for the 3-legged one to adopt 3 weeks ago and Sy told me that a few people have told her the cats are nowhere to be seen. Good Kitties!
