SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – Choose to Care

Hello Everyone..
Hi Melissa..

Thank you for your supportive words..

I’m very glad that Amber is settling well and is behaving herself. I hope that Jack is a good boy as well..

My warmest regards to Fazrul and Comel too..

What Melissa mentioned is true..

For every animal that is adopted from us, it gives us the space necessary besides releasing our resources to rescue and help another..

Therefore, in effect.. you ARE rescuing and helping too when you open your heart and home to a homeless animal..

No doubt we also practise a Catch, Neuter and Release Program.. but we at SCCARFS Pet Connection Project are comfortable only releasing neutered adult cats that already possess the experience and characteristics to handle the world out there..

We DO NOT feel comfortable releasing kittens and puppies, un-adopted adults that we’ve cared for since kittenhood and puppyhood, adults with timid characteristics and dogs.

Even that, we only release these selected animals to available Caring Community Members’ vicinity..

Basically these are friends who are willing to have the cats released in their home area and do not mind to continue feeding them..

However, these animals are NOT their pets.. only visiting neutered strays..

Occasionally, they also send strays that they came across to be neutered at their own expense.

THIS is the Catch, Neuter and Release Program that SCCARFS Pet Connection Project is advocating..

A network of animal lovers or supporters who do not mind sacrificing a bit of their time and money but care for the strays from afar..

There are many of us who already care for so many additional lives in their respective homes.. but at the same time wish to do more to help the others suffering out there..

So the idea is… to be actively involved in neutering the strays in your home environment besides just feeding them..

The strays do not ask for much…

And it is nothing that most of us cannot afford..

It truly is a matter of choice… Choose to care.. and a little bit of sacrifice for a better world..

Thanks so much, everyone..

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – Basic Decency

Hello Everyone..
Hi Suzy..

With reference to Suzy’s comment, I must say that I have met many insensitive parents and insensitive children as well.. not necessarily related.. with NO regards whatsoever or basic decency to treat an animal right.. as a living breathing being that deserves nothing less..

I have also come across many animals, cats and dogs tied with various types of strings and wires too. I have even seen many of these animals suffering in silent pain and agony from the strings eating into their flesh and causing excruciating open flesh wounds.

Just recently, I saw a group of children playing.. They were gleefully burning alive insects while several others were treating a cat as a football.. Their parents were standing nearby.. and they did nothing to stop their kids’ acts of cruelty.

Therefore, the heavy burden of educating others and care for the victimized falls on the shoulders of those with a more heightened sense of responsibility and sensitivity..

It does seem like an uphill battle most time.. but for those who ARE able to feel the pain of others, it is YOUR responsibility to act for the weak.. for empathy is not a common characteristic in this world that we currently live in.

Thank you so much, everyone..

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – Angels and Updates

Hello Everyone..
Hi Carebear, Momo and Lesley..

Thank you for your kind words and encouragement..

We at SCCARFS have been really busy lately.. thus the lack of updates..

Lots have happened but we can only share a fraction of the news, challenges and excitement due to time constraints..

Faizah’s sister, Fazilah (aka Zizi) and her friend, Halim.. came by to collect the two big bags of cat food that SCCARFS has pledged to them to assist in the care of their forty cats..

And you know what.. ANGELS come in many forms!

Halim and Zizi were very kind to assist US instead in some unfinished carpentry work for a huge walk-in cage that we were planning.

Thanks, Zizi and Halim.. We at SCCARFS are very grateful for your help that evening..

This is yet another example of what we at SCCARFS believe in.. The beauty and magic in giving… with no cables attached!!

Then, we had to wait for Sya to arrive with her sister and the pregnant cat that she was distressed over.

Please bear in mind that SCCARFS generally do not take in strays from others but we do consider the situation on a case to case basis..

Anyway, the deal we made with Sya was that we would care for the momma cat till she has birthed and nursed her kittens, after which Sya will be responsible for the spaying of the momma cat and finding new homes for the kittens.

The momma cat will be cared under SCCARFS’ CNR Program and is scheduled for release outside Sya’s home after she has fully healed from the surgery..

By the way, Sya.. momma won’t pop her load till about another two weeks or so.. and she is currently adapting well to her new temporary home..

Alli dropped by with her family to visit Mogwai..

Mogwai was estatic with all the cuddles and love that Alli was showering upon her.

Alli will also be adopting two of the kittens under Nora’s care..

Thanks, Alli..

Chester went home with Meen’s brother.. but we have just received news that Kobe may not be too pleased with Chester’s arrival..

Apparently, fur has been flying..

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for Meen’s Chester and Kobe..

Thank you so much, everyone..

Yours sincerely,
SCCARFS Pet Connection Project

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – Liza & Updates

Hello Everyone..

Over the weekend..

Liza Liza dropped by and adopted another kitty from us to accompany her gray tabby, Milo, that she previously adopted from us…
She is also considering adopting another orange and white kitty, Rudolfa, from us..
Thanks, Liza!!

Meen sent a message that his Kobe now sleeps in his bed with him and is missing a threesome experience with Chester, whom we’re still holding back at SCCARFS when we detected him having the sniffles earlier..
Chester should be able to join Meen and Kobe by this weekend..

Horatio visited us and we had a great time discussing about the welfare of stray animals in general..

Faizah’s cat food arrived.. Call us, Faizah.. for delivery arrangements..

The mangy cat can now open his eyes and see..

A newly rescued mommy cat unloaded her cargo of three beautiful kittens, just several days after we took her in.. Talk about excellent timing..

All in all.. it was an exhausting but good weekend..

Thanks so much, everyone..

Yours sincerely,

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – External CNR Proposal

Hello Everyone..
(With reference to Catalina’s Neuter and Release Program Thread)

The idea of a CNR Program is to… Catch, Neuter and Release stray animals..

NOT “rescue” or “buy” them from an animal shelter for release.

By doing so, you are insulting that organisation and the good that they HAVE done..

Each organisation have their own policies, policies that they see fit for the betterment of their organisational growth.

We may disagree with their policies but one has to respect that it is their prerogative.

Work such as this is not about popularity.. To attain popularity, though ideal, would defeat its purpose.

You’ll never know what it takes to make such an organisation work if you’re not actively involved.. if you’re not in it..

I personally doubt any animal shelters like SPCA would need to put any animal to sleep if everyone plays an ACTIVE role in caring for the welfare of the strays.

It’s just so sad that people in general unjustly treat SPCA as a dumping ground for unwanted pets or stray animals..

Tell me.. what would you do if you were wearing SPCA’s oversize shoes..?

So, everyone.. it does take two to tango..

And for every animal that is put to sleep, you and I are to blame too..

Remember, inaction.. or lack of thereof.. is just as bad.. and is a definite contributing factor too..

Again.. the definition of a CNR Program is to catch the animals ourselves, have them neutered on our own and releasing them where we see fit.. NOT swipe them FROM an animal shelter..

Thank you so much, everyone..

Yours sincerely,

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – External CNR Proposal

Hello Everyone..
(With reference to Catalina’s Neuter and Release Program Thread)

The SCCARFS Pet Connection Project was born out of love and passion for the stray animals..

We at SCCARFS have been hurting on behalf of the strays for a long time now..

We actually feel pain when we see an animal suffer.

Thus our decision to do what we’re doing now.. all at our own expense.. our time, our resources, our money.. without any unnecessary and distracting human issues..

And I think we’ve been doing a bloody good job at it too..

So we know what the word “sacrifice” encompass.. cos we try living it every single day..

Just in case you do not know, sacrifice, to us, means sacrificing one’s limited resources without expecting any benefit.

And I can assure you, we at SCCARFS sacrifice a huge chunk of our resources for these animals..

So, if we sound proud.. hell yeah we are..

We are proud to do what we do and we are really happy to give.. no matter how much.. from the little that we have..

To those who were interested in attending the meeting this Saturday.. you are welcomed to visit US at the SCCARFS hideaway in Kota Kemuning and see what we’re already doing instead..

Then you’ll understand better our dos and don’ts, our goals and principles..

Come visit us.. but do call first to let me know that you’re coming..

Thank you so much, everyone..
.. and Have a great day!!

Yours sincerely,
SCCARFS Pet Connection Project

SCCARFS Pet Connection Project – External CNR Proposal

Hello Everyone..

I can assure you all that no one person is a factor in our decision of refraining to actively participate in other CNR Programs..

Let’s leave emotion and sensitivity aside as our main concern is about the welfare of the stray animals.

We at SCCARFS fear that we may not be able to cope if we attempt to be involved in other projects as we have always worked at a pace that we were comfortable with and since SCCARFS Pet Connection Project is a personal passion.. it is likened to a hobby..

It just so happen that we have taken our very-expensive-no-profit-hobby to a much larger scale than most others would..

So, everyone.. contribute all that you can to any programs or projects of your choice.

Everyone’s contribution is invaluable.. It doesn’t matter where the contributions go so long as the animals benefit..

You have our word that we at SCCARFS will always do whatever we can whenever we can wherever we can.. but at a pace and scale that will not negatively overwhelm us..

Thank you so much, everyone..

Yours sincerely,
SCCARFS Pet Connection Project
Su
