- Sterilization (both male and female cats) in the area
- Spot treatment (treatment for injuries and infections)
- Providing food daily twice a day (3 month's supply)
We consider stray animals to be dirty and infectious. However, we never question the state's and its citizenry's role towards animal welfare and the lack thereof.
I'll give you examples of how this affects the lives of stray cats:
- Oreo was wounded, came crying for helpToday, Oreo came into my verandah crying for some food and help. He was wounded in a cat fight. I was given to understand that his wound was so infected that there were insects feeding on it. A kind neighbour in the Unique Lane cleaned the wound but Oreo still needs medical follow up. He also was famished and had not eaten since two days.
- Bai lost Ginger to an accident and Shiro remains MIABai (picca) gave birth to Shiro (white kitten) and Ginger (brown) sometime in April 2021 end and 8 weeks into their life, Ginger was crushed by a car and his last rites were held by Arnab, another animal friend and myself. He died on the spot from the accident. Bai, the mother kept looking for him for days until she realised he is lost. Car accidents are the most common causes of death of kittens between the age of 6-8 weeks as they start exploring their surroundings. Hence, sterilization is crucial to avoid such mishaps and loss. A week after Ginger's death, Shiro has gone MIA and for weeks we continued to search for her but could not find her. Similarly just a week before Ginger's death, we found another wounded kitten hit by a car. She could not survive the night and succumbed to the injuries.
Please help us with sterilization costs and care of current cat population as we all have limited resources but if we pool in little by little together, we can make a huge difference. Receipts, official documents and picture updates of each cat or kitten will be provided on the platform here or through the following contacts:
