The cat that i neutered today, was so skinny when it first appeared at my porch last month. The vet suspected it lost most of its teeth, due to lack of nutrient. I hope from now onwards, she can lead a better, healthier life.
I continue to feed these released strays cats twice a day. It has become my daily routine. I am glad my mum helps out when I am not around. However, many of them do not live long, averagely less than 2 years as compared to household pet cat that can live up to 20 years.
I know the stray problem can never end, with millions of stray cats and dogs in the country. Though i have neutered all the stray cats at my cat colony, new cats keep appearing. I suspected thrown by people. At times, it's very frustrating, because it's not only the money but lots of time and effort has to be put in to care and neuter them. But i can't give up, as long as i am capable and able to, i will continue to neuter all the female strays that appear. Those who have pets, I strongly advocate neutering them, rather than letting them multiply and just abandoning them. SPCA Penang does give out neutering voucher to pet owners(dogs and cats) to subsidies the cost. Do enquire with SPCA for more information
