We are responsible cat owners and proud of it!
Minister Khaw Boon Wan has expressed his stand that culling cats is not the way to go. He believes a more humane approach is possible if responsible owners spay their cats. (The Straits Times, June 4 2011)
He has sought Minister of State Tan Chuan-Jin to work out a compassionate and mature approach towards the stray cats problem. This includes the related issue of the current HDB regulations forbidding the keeping of cats.
This is welcomed news.
So cat owners, there is no more reason to hide. It is time to show HDB what it means to be a responsible cat owner.
A responsible HDB cat owner
1) sterilises their pet cats
2) keeps pet cats indoors
3) takes effective measures to secure the safety of cats in high-rise flats
If you own cats and aren't doing the above, what are you waiting for? The well-being of cats in Singapore now depends on you.
