Mini Marble Is Back In Action

Mini Marble is back in her territory enjoying life.  After going jogging on Thursday night we walked by where she lives and called her name.  Right away she ran to us to say hello.  We went ahead and gave her a little something to eat, played with her a bit and then went on our way.

It was good to see her back in her usual spot.  It was kinda lonely walking through there and not seeing her the past week while she was at the vet getting spayed.  It seems like everything went well.  They kept her a few extra days to make sure she was ready to play outside again, which was really nice of them.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever posted photos of Mini Marble here but she was picked up tonight to be taken for spaying.

You see, Mini Marble is a stray cat, a community cat, here in Pasir Ris. She’s a small kitten of about 7 months and we see her every day as we walk from the MRT station back to our place.

We first noticed her a few weeks ago and she won us over with her playful attitude. She also helped us to make some new friends. So, we carry a small amount of kibble with us to give to her to make sure she stays fed.

Mini Marble’s sterilization will be paid for through donations. It’s dangerous for unsterilized cats to wander around housing estates in Singapore. When they go into heat they may become noisy which often provoked uncompassionate residents into filing complaints. I say uncompassionate because the resulting ‘solution’ is that the cat or cats are often rounded up and sent of to be killed.

So, this is a good thig for her. It’ll help keep her out of the crosshairs of idiots and overzealous estate managers.

She’ll be laid up at the vet for a week and she’ll then be taken back to her usual territory. Hopefully everything goes well for her.
