Because of the COVID-19, many cat lovers and volunteers worry about Tai O Stray Cat Home’s financial situation. They keep asking me “Do you need further support?” and I said, “you all help me a lot for the past few years”.

From the Anti-extradition bill protest and up to now of this Pandemic, we do have a very tight cash flow for our organization. But I never complain the protest and pandemic, what I need to do is keep taking care of our stray cats in Tai O. As a Christian, I do believe my God has his plan for me and He always arranges the best for me. Because of my belief and with God’s help, my organization (Tai O Stray Cat Home) and I can survive up till now. 

Recalled one summer, I had to bear $70,000 to $80,000 medical expenses for stray cats. I was so worried and felt the dead end in my life. Fortunately, at the end of that year, my respectable Doctor Chong told me that there would be good news for the coming year. Yes, we did get some funding for stray cats of medical expenses.

Over the past few years, many volunteers and cat lovers encouraged me a lot and helped me to apply funding to run the Tai O Stray Cat Home, which I have never expected; I really appreciated their help for our stray cats.

There are always many discouragements in my life, and I do think the predicament is so close to me and for my organization. But still, I would like to say thanks to those kind-hearted people and organizations for their supports; without them, I don’t think Tai O Stray Cat Home can pass thru year 2020 successfully.

No matter how many different voices, I still have no regrets for what I did and going to do my best for our Tai O stray cats.

For the 2nd half of 2019, Hong Kong was facing many issues and the economy of Hong Kong was hard hit; as a result, Tai O Stray Cat Home received fewer donations. But no matter what’s going on, we are dedicated to taking care of stray cats in Tai O.

Late last year, there was a pregnant stray cat came down from the hill and we were able to catch her and put her into the cage smoothly. After a few days, the mother stray cat had a smooth delivery and she has four little kittens.

I was so grateful that I could save this stray cat family. Although the workload has increased again because there are still many stray cats I need to take care of at the same time, but being able to watch these four little kittens grow daily is really a wonderful thing. I know the road is still long and arduous, but we are convinced we should be able to pass through it with all your supports and donations. Anyway, I will never give up.

Fortunately, I could be able to find a new home for these four little kittens. However, after 2-month taking care of these little kittens, I am kind of reluctant to let them go. I will miss them a lot.

Since the beginning of this year 2020, it is not really a good start for Hongkongers because of the Novel Coronavirus. Hopefully, this outbreak will pass soon and we can get back to normal again.

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.

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.
