||STRAY CATS APLENTY
Since the start of Ramadan, we have been flooded with numerous calls regarding the surrendering of cats. Hari Raya season is now upon us, and we hope not to receive more calls like this. No one is purr..fect, we understand when one says it was a stray when it came, we fed it and that’s how it progressed to so many. It is common sense that when we feed we must realize that the population will grow. The most humane thing we can do is to stop the breeding if we decide to carry on feeding.
Next is the blame on the State Veterinary Department as they have decided to stop the neutering services offered to the general community in the state of Penang. The reason given was that they are unable to obtain the anaesthetic drugs used by the department. We are sure there are other means and ways to obtain the anaesthetic drug should the department sees the need and urgency to 'stop this littering' all over before Penang gets flooded with cats!!
The recent publicity of StarMetro dated 2nd May highlighted a 'NEW CLINIC IS MEOW-SIC TO THE EARS' where the facility offers quality, yet cheaper veterinary care and pet boarding services. Surgical facilities are also available at the clinic in Jalan Bukit Tengah, Bukit Mertajam. This is indeed commendable. However, it is our fervent hope that the State Veterinary Department will improve its facility and continue to carry out neutering services again for the general public.
