We are innocent babies. What have we done to deserve this? Please Save Us…
It is a very dark day for us as we announce that we, the Cats & Kittens fostered by the founder in her residence on the 3rd floor of the shop house will soon be homeless. We did our best to meow softly & not be smelly so we passed all National Environment Agency (NEA) inspections & we are healthy so we passed all Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) inspections too! Why?
We have been sent an enforcement notice by Ministry of National Development Lawrence Wong, so we will be evicted. Visitors to the Museum will no longer be allowed to meet & adopt us, the orphan cats & kittens.
This notice has angered our landlord who will not renew Meowmy’s lease, so even the Supurrstars have to go by the end of September.
The saddest news of all is that this marks the end of Singapore’s only Mama & Munchkins Nursery, set-up to save us, the neo-natal babies that no other animal welfare organization in Singapore takes in, as we have to be bottle fed every 3 hours. It also helps save Mamas who were often dumped back on the streets while their babies taken away & re-homed.
An iconic landmark of the civic district, The Cat Museum is an entirely volunteer run project, undertaken with the founder’s personal savings & was launched officially by K Shanmugam Sc Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Law on 9 January 2015.
