Cat adoption one way to curb stray issues
SINGAPORE: Sterilisation is just one of the many ways to curb the stray cat problem in HDB estates, said Minister of State for National Development Tan Chuan-Jin. Brigadier-General (BG) Tan, who is also a Member of Parliament (MP) for Marine Parade Group Representation Constituency (GRC), said this on the sidelines of a community event held on Sunday in his constituency. BG Tan cited his town council's partnership with the Cat Welfare Society, as a way that other town councils and the rest of Singapore could adopt to solve the cat problem. He said Marine Parade Town Council has been working with Cat Welfare society on sterilising and relocating strays to home owners keen on keeping cats as pets. He also noted many emails on the issue would be considered when formulating policies on solving the stray cat problem.
