Cat Welfare Society | Tiger Show

The Cat Welfare Society, together with the Post-Museum, is hosting a week-long event from 21 - 28 February 2010.

The provocatively titled "Tiger Show" welcomes the year of the Mighty Cat in celebration of our humble Community Cats. It will bring together people from all walks of life that have a passion for animal welfare, and most certainly, a soft spot for our feline friends - to gather, to share, to learn and to party!

We want to make this year the year
* Sterilisation is fully supported by AVA and all Town Councils.
* Responsible cat owners show that cats should and must be allowed to be kept as pets in HDB.
* Less intolerance for community cats, less ABUSE!



The line-up for this exciting week is as follows:

21 Feb (Sunday) 7.30pm - The Tiger Show Opens

It's a party so let the fur fly. It's time to break out the alcohol and the party heels.

(Strictly humans tonight, please!)
