"When you personally see...the helplessness of the animals, even if you turn a blind eye, the bad feeling will be nagging at you. So why not step up and do something about it - save the kitten or the cat from harm." - Eliza, the big-hearted cat lady
Meet our #CommunityFolk Eliza, who is a marketer by day and cat rescuer by night! A common face in #KretaAyer, Eliza has taken it upon herself to care for and feed the stray cats in the area, including #BlackyBigBoss and #Greyson, two super #manja community cats that live behind The Social Space!
Originally a self-confessed ‘dog’ person, she shared how she once stumbled upon an office worker feeding an abandoned tortoiseshell cat near her office building a few years ago. After striking up a conversation with the office worker about the issue of cat abandonment, she felt inspired to try and help. She then joined several cat community groups on Facebook and quickly made friends with another feline lover. After 2-3 beautiful kittens appeared out of nowhere near her office, they decided to band together and form a buddy system of rescuing and feeding them.
The rest, as they say, is history - Eliza has dedicated countless hours during her lunch breaks and after work to this cause, and even travels back to this area from her home in Serangoon on weekends just to make sure the community cats don’t miss a meal. Since she started on this mission, she has rescued, rehabilitated & re-homed over 10 abandoned cats and continues to provide for many others! Just last week, in the most recent rescue case of 4 kittens, she caught and confronted the man who allegedly abandoned them, and is now helping with an ongoing investigation with the authorities.
One thing is for sure: this #fearless cat lady is not going to stop her rescue work. As she says, “There is no sacrifice. There is only fulfilment.”
Catch her sometime in our space (or around Chinatown) to hear her stories!
