Same as usual, I was so busy and kind of exhausted to take care of little kittens and adult cats with sickness at the same time. You know what it is always not easy to feed sick cats with medicine because they never cooperate with you. Besides, I also need to catch stray cats to do sterilization to control stray cat numbers in Tai O and neighborhood.
Recently, the social atmosphere has been so bad in Hong Kong that it is not easy to find people to adopt little kittens. But still, a lot of hard work and help from volunteers; we could be able to find new homes for our little monsters (kittens).
One Sunday in November, a group of volunteers and it’s about 12 people (most of them were 1sttime to visit Tai O) came to Tai O to do voluntary work for Tai O Stray Cat home. In the last part of the sharing session, everyone was so happy and grateful. For all these years, without all your support, I don’t think I can survive.

Report of 3rd Quarter 2019
By Chi - Volunteer
One night, I noticed a badly hurt stray cat (his forelimb was hurt and maybe broken), I called this stray cat as “Black & White”, even though he got hurt but it was not easy for me to catch him into the cage. Finally, I could catch him and bring him to see the veterinarian; he needed to stay in the vet’s clinic for a few days.
I received a call from a veterinarian and he mentioned that “Black & White” was in serious condition; his forefoot and sole areas have been bitten and decay severely. Besides, due to a large amount of blood loss from his wound, “Black & White” was extremely weak. The veterinarian told me that he needed to wait for the blood test report to make sure “Black & White” was OK and then he could perform the forelimb surgery for “Black & White”. For sure, the medical expenses for this surgery would be huge and we all need your support and donations for “Black & White”
I would like to say thanks for all your support and show love to “Black & White” (he is about 1 year old now and was living in Sun Ki Ping of Tai O). Fortunately, his blood report was OK and Dr. Zhuang helped “Black & White” to perform the surgery to amputate his forelimb. Thank you God, the surgery went smoothly and “Black & White” is better now.
However, “Black & White” has only 3 legs now, I know that I will have a hard time to find him a new home; anyway, no matter what, I will take good care of him and will help him to get a good caregiver.

Recently, I was so busy and kind of exhausted. It is because I need to take care of little kittens and adult cats with sickness at the same time. You know what it is always not easy to feed sick cats with medicine because they never cooperate with you. Besides, I also need to catch stray cats to do sterilization to control stray cat numbers in Tai O and neighborhood.
The sick adult cat, Mickey, has been admitted to the hospital again; his condition is worse this time. It is because he has a new fight with another stray cat, his wound is inflamed with pus and he also has anemia. Fortunately, one of my friends in Tai O brings Mickey to her home temporarily to take care of his injuries; this does help me a lot and also lower my burden.
Among those little kittens from Siu Ho Wan, there is the weakest one and his name is An-chai. I didn’t help him to find a new home because he was so weak and I think it is better for me to take care of him and therefore I can nurture him to grow strong and healthy in Tai O.
In my opinion, the rapid development of the city will not allow stray animals to get involved, and therefore they are going to extinct. For those little kittens, for sure they may not be able to survive if we don’t find adopters for them.
Finally, I can help those three little kittens in Siu Ho Wan to find new homes; while adult stray cats from Siu Ho Wan have also been sterilized; that made me feel good and give me the courage to keep taking care of stray cats.
