Appealling for help for Mdm Teo (Joo Chiat Auntie)

Mdm Teo was forced to move from her usual Joo chiat shophouse as the landlord had sold it off and gave her very little time to find a place which can keep her dogs and cats. Previously, she had to struggle with her $1000 rental at the Joo Chiat Shophouse which was almost burnt down when the aircon shop below caught fire. This tragedy killed several of her cats and a dog. 

Recently, she had finally found a new place at Tembeling Rd, and had just moved in. The rental is $1700.

Mdm Teo has lost alot of weight, and as she continues her care for the animals despite the stress she is facing, we are very concerned that she may be ill. Her sudden loss of weight and constant ringing in the ear makes us worried. However, she remains calm and claimed that she was over stressed from the string of bad events that had occurred. 

Mdm Teo is currently getting a little help from a friend but the rental is simply too much to afford. She is hoping to rent out  a room to help lighten her burden. So please spread the word if anyone wants to rent a room. 

We are trying to rehome some of Mdm Teo’s rescued cats as she can have more time to look after her own health. She will need any form of financial help.

For those of you who may know her, you may want to contact her directly to help chip in to lighten her burden. 

For those who wish to help her through us, you can :

1) transfer your contributions to us at POSB Savings 073-26123-6 and we will arrange to hand it to her. Please send us an email to indicate date of transfer

2) sponsor cat food (email to us)

3) help clean up her cats n clip their nails (experienced volunteers only. Email us to arrange)

Any queries, pls drop us an email at pawpledge@gmail.com

An Urgent Appeal for an Elderly Caregiver

An Urgent Appeal for Help?

Aunty's sick catIn my recent visits to a cat farm managed by an elderly caregiver, I must say I can see that this Aunty is genuinely committed, not greedy over money and seriously truthfully broke.  She didn’t even have the means to take the sick animals to the vet.  I saw this really sick and skinny kitten last Sunday.  Though sick, it still tried to crawl close to me.  The next day, a guilt-strickened me called Aunty and begged her to bring the kitten to the vet.  I told her I’ll pay for the transport and vet bills out of my own pocket.  In the evening, she called me to say that by the time transport arrived, the kitten has passed on 😦  There are 5 or 6 other kittens in such a state at the farm.  I really wish we can all pool in our funds to help her get through this challenge…just the challenge of putting a roof over the cats so they don’t all have to be put down.

Before I see another cat suffer and die because of lack of medical attention, I want to appeal for funds to help this poor cat in Aunty’s care.  I don’t know what happened to him but from my conversation with Aunty, it seems that he had such a horrible flu or inflammation such that his entire face is swollen.  There’s an ugly lesion in the center of his face and it’s distorting his left eye and the entire left side of his face.  Vet said that he has to undergo surgery.  Aunty doesn’t even have enough money to cover rental and transport to the vet.  She will have trouble paying for this cat’s medical bill.  Please help out generously.  If you would like to help, please contact pawpledge@gmail.com.  Or you can transfer your funds and email the transaction reference number and amount to us.  We will administer the funds and post up the receipts on our website: https://pawpledge.wordpress.com

Bank Transfer Details: DBS Savings Plus 052-2-017750 (Please remember to email us if you donated so that we can account for all donations.)

A Caring and Committed Caregiver:

We’ve committed to help out this elderly caregiver who houses 80+ cats in a cat farm. Aunty M, let’s just call her ‘Aunty’, wakes up at the crack of dawn daily to do her rounds feeding cats in the North part of the island.  Around noon, she rushes down to the farm located at the far eastern side of the island.  The journey which includes changing of buses usually takes more than 1 hour, not to mention that she has to lug bags of heavy home-cooked food for the cats.

When she gets to the farm, she feeds them, spends hours cleaning up the farm, and medicating sick cats.  With so many cats in the farm, it’s amazing that she can spot cats that are not eating.  She’ll quickly quarantine them and force feed them.  If they still refuse to eat, she’ll put them on an IV drip.  By evening, she rushes off again on her feeding rounds in the East.  It’s a common sight to see Aunty’s petite and thin frame trudging down Katong, with heavy bags of cat food, feeding the community cats there.  After her feeding rounds on the east side, she takes the bus back up North where she feeds her neighborhood cats.  Such is the daily routine of this elderly lady.

Big Bully:

I came to know that this elderly lady was bullied by a money-minded landlord with absolutely no compassion for animals.  He is the owner of the farm and threatens to put down her cats if she does not pay rent on time.

Previously, it was suspected that he has opened up the farm door to let some of the cats run out.  Unfortunately, Aunty has no proof.  Who else other than Aunty and the landlord has the key?  Some cats went missing, some went hiding in the drain and it was storming!  Aunty found a couple of them cowering in the drain and she climbed into the drain to rescue them.  Some have died as a result of flu.

Now, someone came along and offered the Landlord more money than what Aunty is paying and he’s evicting her with immediate effect.  Of course he doesn’t give a damn about how she’s going to find a new place in such short notice for the 80+ cats.  She begged for 2 more weeks and he has demanded her to pay $2000.  Aunty has borrowed the money from her sis to cover the rental.

If you would like to help Aunty out, please speak to us: pawpledge@gmail.com

Aunty’s cats for adoption will be posted on: http://babywail.multiply.com/photos/album/45/Aunty_Ms_Cats_for_Adoption

Please help Fat Fat, the now paralysed cat.

fatfat1fatfat2fatfat3

Fat Fat was found along the road side at Old Airport Road by a caregiver, Mdm Zhen, during her usual feeding rounds. At first, she caught Mdm Zhen’s attention because she did not look well and was not walking straight. However, she still attempted to greet Mdm Zhen with a headbutt! But Fat Fat later succumbed to the pain and collapsed.

Sensing something is wrong, Mdm Zhen sent Fat Fat to the vet. Fat Fat had her X ray taken and it was shown that her spine was broken into 3 parts, and she was actually in great pain.  The vets suspect that she could have been run over by a vehicle but had managed to struggle her way to the pavement…

She is now warded at The Animal Doctors. Sadly, Fat Fat will never be able to stand on her fours anymore. She will also need to have her pee and poo manually extracted. Despite such tragedy, Fat Fat is still the most affectional gal, always wanting pat…

Plans have been made to have Fat Fat boarded at Blessing Home after she gets discharged. Just like Debbie (http://vimeo.com/2687291) Fat Fat will receive intensive care and lots of love. 

Please lend Mdm Zhen a hand with Fat Fat’s medical fees. Despite financial constraints, Mdm Zhen has been actively sterilising the community cats at Old Airport Road. She is a very responsible caregiver who has showered the cats with unconditional love.

The bill we checked 2 days back has already hit $500 and is still accelerating… 

If you wish to lend Mdm Zhen a hand, you can either:

1) make an internet bank transfer to POSB Savings 073-26123-6 . Please drop us an email indicating time and amt of your bank transfer.

or

2) cross your cheque to The Animal Doctors Pte Ltd and ,for recording purpose, pls post it to : 

Blk 13, Telok Blangah Crescent, #06-360, Singapore 090013. (attn:For Fat Fat)

Thanks heaps,

Rdgs,

Pawpledge team
