From the desk of Mama Piggy:
I have sent an email to the "power that be", and am hoping for the best. I am not asking for a change in the policy, that would take too long to happen. All I am asking is for HDB to assess the matter on a case-by-case basis, and not punish responsible pet owners like my mum with a blanket ruling. Removing the cats is a quick-fix approach that tantamounts to abandonment, and sending the kitties to SPCA is a sure-death "solution".
While waiting to hear from the HDB again, we have made some short-term and long-term plans.
Phyllis has kindly offered her help upon hearing my mother's plight, I am very touched by her kindness.
We will do everything we can for the kitties. Their fate lies in our hands.
A pet is for life, remember? :)
