Finally, we finished to build feeding boxes and road signs, I would like to say thank you for all helpers and volunteers to participate and finalized the project; this project couldn’t complete without them.

For this project, we had carpenter (Mr. Lam) and illustrator (Miss Ip) to teach all the helpers and volunteers to prepare materials to build feeding boxes and road signs, such as cutting wood, painting, designing, drawing, etc. In my opinion, it was such a great and successful event. 

Before placing those feeding boxes and road signs to the designated area for stray cats; we placed some feeding boxes and road signs outside of Tai O Stray Cat Home campus temporary, turned out we had very good feedback and comments, and also many tourists took pictures on those feeding boxes and road signs. More than that, one of the local café chains on Lantau Island (after renovation) uses the feeding boxes pictures for its decoration.

Besides, those road signs message, such as no flashlight, no human food, keep quiet, spread positive effects because people become more alert to how to treat stray cats and follow those road signs instruction.

Through this project, we can fulfill our intention to let more people to understand stray animals (cats, dogs, etc.) need to be respected and loved; and make people know that stray animals are also part of the community.

The making of Feeding Boxes

We are going to have a project in July 2017 to make feeding boxes and road signs for Tai O stray cats.

Our goal is to build 4 feeding boxes and road signs in Tai O. We would like to encourage Tai O residents or volunteers to work together to build feeding boxes and road signs to improve quality for stray cats in the community.

The intention of this project is to let more people to understand stray animals (cats, dogs, etc.) need to be respected and loved; it is because they are also part of the community. More than that, these beautiful and colorful feeding boxes and road signs can be used to beautify the environment of Tai O.

This project is needed because existing wooden feeding boxes are old and full of mold. This is time to replace them with waterproof board to make them last longer; besides, the design of feeding boxes includes some spaces for stray cats for resting or sleeping. For the road signs, the purpose is to list some guidelines for tourists or residents to tell them how to treat stray cats such as no flashlight, no human food, keep quiet, etc.

The budget for this project is about USD 1,000

1. Feeding box: USD 130 x 4 = USD 520

2. Road sign: USD 80 x 4 = USD 320

3. Courier/freight charge: USD 70

4. Paint and miscellaneous: USD 90

A Stray Cat

Dinner time-1

Every night, no matter how’s the weather; I (German) always carry a big tray of food to feed stray cats in Tai O. Feeding stray cats every night is my responsibility, it is my duty to take care of them, and also it is because they are a part of the community in Tai O.

One of the stray cats, he has no name, he is the most well-behaved one; he always waited for my food but somehow I haven’t seen him since last Sunday. I was so worried about him, one of the neighbors mentioned that morning was kind of noisy and heard some dog barking, he didn’t know whether that behaved stray cat was attacked by a stray dog or not. I extremely upset but I hope there will be a miracle for the behaved one.

Miss Chan, she is an animal communicator, she has taken care lot of stuffs but she always comes to Tai O stray cats and me right away when I need help. Through the telepathy, Miss Chan said that the missing behaved stray cat was injured, but he is alright; he is hiding now because of the shock. Interestingly, Miss Chan mentioned the little one wanted to have some beef jerky. After hearing all this, I keep them in my heart. Anyway, I was thinking I should bring him some beef jerky when I see him next time.

After a few days of not seeing the behaved one, I was so anxious about his condition, especially as the weather was getting cooler and started raining. I called Miss Chan again to tell her what my concerns. She said that no worry, he should be there now and waiting for your food. Therefore, I went to the place that I always feed him immediately; Yes, he is there and waiting for me, he looks thinner than before but still alright. After feeding the behaved one and other stray cats, I called Miss Chan to tell her that he is back. Once again, I would like to say thanks to Miss Chan.
