Cat Walk 2017

Hi everyone, hope you are all well! We have had our Cat Walk 2017 last Friday (3rd March 2017) at Arts and U-town. A big thank you to all those who came down and all the feeders who kindly helped us out. I am sure there are a lot of mid-term tests going on these two weeks, yet all of you came down and stayed throughout the event. Thank you! I have some pictures taken from the event to share with you guys!

The participants interacting with our arts kitty, crumbs! She’s a shy one, but surprisingly allowed us to approach her closer than usual! Thanks crumbsss

Trapping of M33y Thay

Hi everyone! Meet M33y Thay, our new arts cat.

m33y-thay

This handsome kitty right here has been one of the most difficult ones to trap so far! We have made many failed attempts before successfully trapping him on 9th of October (Sunday), around 3PM at AS4 – near arts vicinity. He was released yesterday (11th October) at the same place he was trapped 🙂

[UPDATE] Cat Vet Talk 2016

Hello Everyone!

On 27 October 2016, NUS Cat Cafe collaborated with NTU Cat Management Network(NTUCMN) to hold a Cat Vet Talk. A few of the committee members, as well as, some cat feeders had the opportunity to attend the talk. Dr. Vanessa Lin and her team from My Family Vet clinic came down to teach cat first aid as well as tips on how to care for community cats.

We learnt how to identify common cat diseases, how to handle cats and what to do when we see an injured cat. Dr. Lin was very enthusiastic to teach us and brought along diagrams and medications to show us. She welcomed us to ask any questions regarding cats and gave useful advice. She even shared her experiences and insights from cat cases she has encountered. Unfortunately, Dr. Lin was unable to get a cat over for demonstration but we made do with a cute soft toy!

Overall, we hoped everyone who attended benefited from the talk and gained a lot of useful information to serve our cats better 🙂

[UPDATE] Feline Therapy Programme April’16

It’s me again!

FTPApril’16 was a huge success, where lucky students high in spirits got the chance to interact with the adorable Cat Therapists (therapists who are cats) of Cat Safari Singapore. Due to intense interest in the event last semester, we’d doubled the number of sessions and brought FTP to a bigger venue this time round — more space more cats, simple maths! Held at Cat Safari’s own space at Sunny Heights, NUSCatCafe partnered with and was joined by Voices For Animals (VFA) founder Derrick and VFA Volunteers.

FTP highlighted the potential of companion cats as a source of therapy to destress. Throughout the programme, participants cooed and interacted with the free roaming therapy cats around the venue, many of which started as rescues coming from difficult backgrounds, hinting at the tragic reality some of these voiceless creatures face even today. We’d like to once again thanks VFA and Cat Safari Singapore for their cooperation to bring the benefits of FTP to NUS.

Pictures below are testament to the thorough enjoyment attendees felt during the programme. Pardon the blurriness!
