As a Stray Cats Organization, we are always busy. Finally, I could find time to update the medical follow-up status for our stray cats with the help of our volunteer accountant to finalize some of the billing charges.
In the past few days, the vet’s clinic manager asked me several times to pay the outstanding balance for the medical bills of stray cats, and I always told her that I will pay it soon. And every time the vet’s clinic manager always said humorously to me, “the outstanding balance for this month is about HKD 20,000 (USD 2,600); while the total outstanding balance is about HKD 80,000 (USD 10,300). Don't you think it is easy to save stray cats?"
One of the hospitalized stray cats, Huihui successfully completed the removal of teeth (oral ulcers) and sores, and he is back home now. Ever since Huihui was discharged from the hospital, he becomes so attached to humans. Saving stray cats are not easy, but when I see them recovered and back home, I feel relieved and happy.
For sure I know that it is not easy to save stray cats, not easy to run a non-profit organization, and I always want to give up. However, when I know that I can save stray cats, and bring them to see vet, find homes, and change their lives; I will do my best even I will face lot of challenges. Of course, thanks for all your support and volunteers help out, without you all, I think I can do nothing.
Same as usual, we always busy to take care of stray cats in Tai O. In late July 2021, we rescued a very tiny and skinny kitten. He was thinner than a mouse, and you can feel that he has only skin and bone at all. I took a shower for him and also caught all fleas on him. You know what I felt so upset and cried a lot before if I save a stray cat like this, but now I feel so fortunate and thanksgiving that I can help out and save another life.
For this tiny and skinny kitten, we called his name as “Ka-long”. After a few days in the Tai O Stray Cat campus, he has better now and gained some weight. He is one of the four baby kittens, but the last survivor. If we didn’t find him and rescue him, he would not be able to survive. We will do our best to take care of him and make sure he gains weight, builds up a strong body and being healthy; then we can help him to find a new home to have a great family.
Once again, thank you for helping us, we are for sure that we can’t last long without your support; therefore, please keep supporting us and we can help more and more stray cats in Tai O and other areas.
