Hi, a warm welcome to Cats Need. I am Cena Yong the founder of Cats Need. I created this site to build awareness for all pet animals, not just for cats. Pets are supposed to be part of our family and not to be neglected and abandoned.
Previously, I did not know or have any experience about nurturing a pet and also not interested to know about their well being. But in 2005 something happened when I came back home from work late in the evening. To my surprise, someone had dumped a pregnant cat outside my door step. As there are no pets in my house and my family are not keen on keeping a pet in the house, I decided to provide food daily for this female cat till it give birth.
After a few weeks, she gave birth to 5 cute kittens. I still continue to provide her food so that she is able to nurse her kittens. Following the next 2 months, her kittens had grown up and are able to eat solid foods. I then realized that I cannot continue to feed them outside my door step. I began to call up several friends to adopt the kittens. Some of my friends agreed and one after another, the kittens were adopted. I felt so happy for the kittens.
After a few months, I began a follow up calls to my friends who adopted the kittens. To my dismay, some of my friends gave their kittens away and to my disappointment, some of them release the kittens elsewhere. This is disheartening. To make matters worst, the mother cat is pregnant again. Oh what am I supposed to do, I ask myself. I then searched the internet for help. To my relieved, I found all sort of information on how to nurture cats and how to find a suitable home for kittens. Sterilization (Neuter/Spay) is the first thing I learned.
I immediately sent the female cat for spray after she gave birth. I named her Grandma. I then began my search to find a suitable home for Grandma and her kittens. My objective are not just by giving away these cats to anyone who is looking for a pet. He/she might be an abuser or just being impulsive to keep a pet for that moment. They need to go through a screening process to find out where he/she reside and do house visit.
