Cat abuser!!

Postby MJK » Sat, 27 Aug 2005 9:57 pm

OMG!!! I found this thread in another forum.. Quite shocking to see how Singaporeans treat their local cats.. I :mad: feel ashame as 1 as well!! :???: This act shouldn't be tolerate! We may be alittle more superior than the animals, but that doesn't mean we can abuse them!! As a cat lover myself, I'm really upset to see that... :mad:

That's why!! Simply can't stand them!! And from that post in that other forum, that cat was PREGNANT!! For goodness sake!! Even if u wanna deal or hit a cat, why hit a pregnant one? It's like that poor cat sound so defendless.. I was crying when I read that.. So sad to see our fellow countrymen did that.. :cry:

Never heard of that before... :-k

I may be a singaporean too.. I don't understand why there is a need to abuse animals... Is it to do with boosting self-esteem? I recall reading that somewhere..

heard something like this before from old folks. but they does it to dogs too. but not all dogs and cats. only to those who have a white tipped tail. old folks say that the white tipped tail brings bad luck and they'll tie rubber bands around the tip and wait for it to drop off.
PS: i only hear before. never saw it done infront of my eyes thou.

One theory I have heard is that it usually re-directed anger. Try to find the book 'Manwatching' by Desmond Morris who makes mention of this. To me it seems quite likely as I once had a real 'monster' of stepfather who was cruel to animals, Desmond Morris's theory seem to befit him sod that he was, but that's another issue.

Well the SPCA is trying its best, but if there is not enough support there is very little that they can do... O:)

Beside SPCA, if we encounter such things, where else can we go to? :?
