The best way to help Project LUNI is by making donations whether this is a food donation through PolyPet, buying our merchandise items or a simple monetary donation. We are super grateful for every single bit and you can be sure every cent goes straight to help the cats. Please check our Donation page on our website for more information.
There are multiple reasons why we usually do not take in feral kittens >8 weeks old. First, the handling of kittens (socialization) must be done in their socialisation period which ends with 10-12 weeks. If not handled in this period, they usually grow up feral and it will be nearly impossible to tame them so they can have a happy life in a home and also the adopters are having fun with the cat. There is also a risk of developing behavioral problems caused by the anxiety and fear.
Second, it is very hard to adopt out older cats, even adolescent kittens that are still super playful. The Singaporean community mostly wants cute kittens. It’s not that we support or agree with this, but our fosterers cannot keep the cats forever, unfortunately.
Third, we believe that cats that are accustomed to life on the street should not be confined in our homes and forced to be our pets. This can create stress and a range of behavioral problem. Which is not pleasant for either the cat or yourself. We try to care for them on the streets with our responsible feeders who feed daily and help with medical problems. You can do so as well and help cats on the streets.
If you are able to handle the cat yourself please help us out and take it the cat to a clinic we work with. We can give you the details if you contact us through Facebook message or email.
If the cat is feral and you are unable to handle it, please contact us so we can hand you the direct contact number of our trapper. Our trapper needs to know the following:
- The address where you saw the cat(s)
- How many unsterilized cats you saw
- Are there also kittens under 4 months?
- Are you the regular feeder?
- Time of your daily feeding if applicable
- Your phone number, full name, address and NRIC
Let us know when you made the appointment with our trapper so we can contact our clinic to save a time slot for the sterilization.
