The clock starts now. We have 2 years… to show Singapore that HDB owners with cats can live harmoniously with other neighbours. *
The cat ownership pilot exists within a larger animal welfare movement. Feedback gained from many of you through the recent animal welfare legislation review includes
1) Registration for all pet owners – dog, cat and rabbit.
2) Education to all potential pet owners seeking to buy or adopt
3) Central microchip database for all pets in pet shops and homes This pilot takes a major leap in embracing these recommended practices.
The clock starts now to register all Chong Pang cat owners by Jan 2013 to conduct rigorous screening of new and existing cat owners to ensure that all the pet cats are microchipped * It's a monumental undertaking.
The clock starts now to reach out to all Chong Pang residents. There are 123 blocks in this pilot. 1 and a half blocks per day every day to outreach to by the end of 31 Jan 2013. 1 and a half blocks per day every day for registration follow ups by the end of 30 Apr 2013. 6 and a half blocks per month to fully resolve issues by end of the pilot. * There will be cat owners who need help.
The clock starts now for Cat Welfare Society and caregivers to seek out and render help to low-income cat owners in Chong Pang. * There will always be cat owners who are simply recalcitrant.
The clock starts now for animal welfare groups and government agencies to establish effective measures to deal with recalcitrant cat owners. for animal welfare groups to find a way to save the poor cats from these recalcitrant cat owners. * Are you ready when cat ownership comes to your estate?
