I hope it is still not too late to post my Music Monday. I have been held back with too many things on my mind and just was not in a mood for anything. I felt so sorry for most of the rescued cats from Terengganu. Each time some people came to view them, they tend to request for Persian cats and quality cats by mentioning they prefer cats with long furs! Those which were thrown to me are all local cats and kittens. Even my beautiful cats are not good enough for them. My! my! who have the class these days me or those from the "kampong" I mean from this village. Look as though they are only going for beauty and class, and not into wanting to contribute saving the life of their own cats, I mean cats/kittens from their own state. Wow! the people here these days are trying to be somebody, aren't there? Instead here I am doing all my best everyday without fail with long hours spent cleaning up the shelter behind and all other chores for the cats/kittens from Terengganu and they are not even interested except just recently a lady has booked to take a female mother cat together with 4 kittens after much convincing, only coming to take them next week, hopefully it is not empty promises and a guy who will come back to take one female cat rescued from KL which has already been spayed. The other two guys are still keeping post phoning to come and view these cats/kittens. It really make me feel so sick inside thinking that even people here in Marang are not interested in their own local cats/kittens and wanting to have quality cats/kittens instead. If this is the case, I'm sure most of them are established and can afford to adopt and spend for these unfortunate animal, yet they are just trying to be choosy now instead. Having this in mind, at once I know to dream having them to contribute joining hands to help adopt these rescued cats/kittens would be a slim chance. These people are truly not animal lover after all, they only want good looking, good breed cats/kittens. Well! if that is the case, they should then go shop around at the pet shop then instead of wasting my time.
I feel so bad for all these rescued cats/kittens from Marang and so disappointed with these bunch of selfish, self-centred idiots. I have been prolonging for so many months to send them to the Shelter Home in Kuala Lumpur because I am trying my utmost to give them to good home instead of sending them to Shelter Home and do not really know what their fate would be in the near future, whether some good Samaritan in Kuala Lumpur will come for their rescue to adopt them or will they be put to death by mercy death instead??! This is what scare me off and am really disappointed with these bunch of selfish and mean local people here. It was their own people who abandoned these unwanted cats/kittens after letting them breed out of control and for the sake of these poor animal from their own state, they should at least consider choosing and taking them from my shelter instead of asking for Persian cats.
I have raised these poor animal for quite sometimes and they are healthy and in good shape and are quite clean. As far as I can see, some look mixed and quite good looking. It is just that I cannot be keeping and taking care 41 cats on my own! I need to survive and need a life too. As I am planning to shift back to Kuala Lumpur since this place is a nightmare to me, I cannot be having all these cats with me. Firstly, I don't think my future landlord would allow me to rent a house with 41 cats, secondly, it comes to a point that it takes the whole life of me just for the cats and most of time is spent looking after them, checking whether the cages are clean and so forth, especially for the three gown up male cats, they are placed in 2 different cages as they are not spayed yet. Moreover, it is also not fair to keep them in cages always. The third cage contains two little kittens without a mother just thrown to me recently including another two slightly bigger kittens accident babies breed at my shelter, and that is why I now separated the three male cats from the shelter as they have grown bigger and put them into two different cages. All these involved hard work, sweat and pain and sometimes I feel that I really do not deserved all these. Apart from all the hard work, I need to spend a handsome sum of money purchasing cat food. I would not mention this if I am now working, I am doing all this with my life saving, it sounds crazy, but it is true! These people are so selfish, they did not want to spay their pets and when their pets breed out of control they then simply throw their unwanted kittens to me. Whereas, in my case before I shifted here not knowing that I will be getting all these unnecessary burden, I spayed/neutered all my cats (my own and some rescued cats from KL) planning to live a quiet and peaceful life.
See .... what they have done me, just like as though there is "NO JUSTICE" towards me, at least in Singapore as far as I know, there is a law imposed towards the cruelty of animal. If found cruelty towards animal they could be fine a large sum of money and even put behind bar. It is so shameful to mention Malaysia being a Muslim country, as far as I know nothing is done for the right of the animal, even all the Shelter Homes in Kuala Lumpur are backed up by private bodies, really a big disgrace and what an image? I would not like to condemn my own country as I love Malaysia but something isn't right here. In Islam, it is taught not to neglect animal and the surroundings as well, to the extent it is also taught that half of our "iman" lies in cleanliness, meaning as a true believer we must be clean physically and internally, inside out, not just dressed a Muslim way and yet be self-centred and forget the surrounding and environment. I believe mostly this theory is not being applied for the sake of selfishness.
Phew! I just awoke from a short sleep zzzzzzzzzzz here at my computer desk, too tired I think after all the hardwork at the shelter.
