今個星期有兩件很重要的事情,一是為索罟灣的流浪貓作大型絕育,二是為等待領養的狗狗們尋一個家…這半年多斷斷續續都有探訪索罟灣的流浪貓,雖然流浪貓的生活未算太差,但因為他們大部份尚未做絕育手術的關係,以致流浪貓的數目不斷上升,我就曾經在同一次拍照的時間內看到了三家不同的貓媽跟小貓,附近有餵開貓貓的姐姐看著新生的小貓不是生病就是活得不久,而我能帶回南丫島動物保護組織的就只有小bill billmollie,他們是極少數的一群,街上能健康活下來的例子不多,義工跟我都希望在為貓貓育後數量得以控制之餘,亦可以讓他們得到健康的生活…

所以我想說給仍然反對為流浪浪絕育的朋友知道,當你未親眼看過、接觸過和感受過小貓因為先天不足或其它問題而離開,是始終不會明白絕育對於流浪貓是有多重要…大約一個月前就有人因為流浪貓的數目過多而向漁農處投訴,接著還派員捉走了幾隻貓貓,得悉後義工從漁農署將貓貓救回來才逃過一劫…

難度頻繁的出生與死亡才是我們想看到的?

經過義工多翻努力之後終於跟愛護動物協會(SPCA)安排到今次的行動,上星期五特地請了一天假,為流浪貓絕育行動作少許安排事宜,到索罟灣看看環境及通知當地居民有關流流貓絕育的訊息及相關的配合…當天一行五人,南丫島動物保護組織(LAWC)的Dr. John,SPCA的兩位職員,以及熟悉島上情況的一位朋友帶著我們四處探訪及搜尋流浪貓的蹤影,好讓正式捕貓的時候能利進行…除派發一般有關CCCP (捕捉.絕育.釋放) 的單張外,各人亦即場為居民解答不同的問題,例如有人問及為甚麼捉貓絕育後不選擇給人領養而要放回原居地*?絕育後對人或貓有甚麼好處?居民們都相當合作,亦了解到絕育行動前的一天不可以餵飼流浪貓,增加了貓貓走進捕貓器的機會…

其中一間荒廢了的鋪頭內據說有大量貓貓在內,可惜我們未能進內,不能看清楚入面的情況…

島上一些善心的居民會為流浪貓準備食物,但並不代表每一隻貓貓都可以吃得飽…

貓貓施著魚骨,算是一頓豐富的午餐嗎?

還是在等待清潔的碗碟內尋寶比較好?

大致上整個行動經過義工間的協調已有了初步的計劃,詳細的安排仍在等待落實當中,希望今次能夠幫到那裏的流浪貓,同時亦讓附近的居民知道流浪貓也可以是他們生活的一部份,在沒有互相的影響下生活,這是大家都想看到的…

*放回原居地其中一個原因是因為貓貓會有遷移的習性,就算A貓地的貓貓全都給捉了,其它貓地的貓也會遷移到A貓地生活,所以這個方法是不可行的…另外就是流浪貓大部份都怕人,不適合與人相處,所以貓貓不一定可以給人領養,義工會觀察及視乎情況而作出決定…

[2] I need YOUR HELP!

Hi, I'm from the State. I love to read your blog and I'm reading everyday. And I know you love cats, therefore I need you to help. The airport near my school is trying to kill all of the cats. Here is the information:

PORT AUTHORITY REJECTS PUBLIC OUTCRY AND BEGINS EXTERMINATION OF JFK CATS
Port Authority Caught Lying About Cats' Fate

(New York, Oct. 29, 2007) Despite an avalanche of criticism from thousands of outraged members of the public, the Port Authority of NY and NJ began trapping feral cats at JFK Airport over this past weekend with the plan of exterminating them. Rescuers were barred from feeding or attempting to rescue the cats and were threatened with arrest by federal wildlife officials from USDA. In addition, a Port Authority spokesman admitted to the NY Post his agency had lied when telling the public last Friday the cats would all be adopted into good homes. The NY Post confirmed the cats would be put down immediately instead. (See "Frequent Liars." )

Experienced feral cat workers have also refuted the Port Authority's claim the cats pose a risk to aviation because their food supposedly attracts seagulls. "That's another lie and a fright tactic designed to fool the public. JFK Airport is located near the ocean and has mountains of trash strewn all over the grounds. That's why there are seagulls, not because of an insignificant amount of cat food," said Bryan Kortis, Executive Director of Neighborhood Cats.

Experts point out that cats are usually blamed for killing birds, not attracting them, that feeding cats can be done in a manner that leaves no food for birds, and that there is no study or other report suggesting a link between the presence of cats at an airport and an aviation risk.

In addition, the admitted desire of JFK wildlife biologist Laura Francoeur to create a "cat-free" airport is doomed to failure. Similar attempts at countless other locations have repeatedly failed to overcome the constant appearance of new cats and their reproductive ability. Only through sterilization and long-term monitoring by caretakers (that is, Trap-Neuter-Return or "TNR") can the cats' numbers be reduced.

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW

Phone, fax and email the people listed below and demand Port Authority suspend the trapping immediately and meet with representatives of the NYC Feral Cat Initiative and the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals to come up with a humane, effective feral cat management plan. The people contacted on Friday refuse to meet, so now let's talk to their bosses. Please review the three talking points at the end of this letter so you know how to respond to their PR dept's fabrications.

TALKING POINTS: PORT AUTHORITY KILLS CATS AND THE TRUTH

LIE #1: "The cats will all be adopted into good homes."

THE TRUTH: Feral cats are unadoptable and usually are immediately put down when brought to shelters, as Port Authority plans to do. Port Authority ADMITTED LYING to the public about this in the NY Post article, "Frequent Liars", published Saturday, October 27, 2007.

LIE #2: "Feeding the cats attracts seagulls and the birds are an aviation threat."

THE TRUTH: Seagulls are at the airport because JFK is NEAR THE OCEAN!! And because there are tons of trash strewn about the airport's grounds. There is not enough cat food to attract large numbers of birds and there is no food left anyway when the cats finish eating. Cats hunt birds, they don't attract them. There is ZERO evidence proving a link between the presence of cats at an airport and an aviation risk. DON'T BE GULL-IBLE!!!

LIE #3: "We can achieve a cat-free airport."

THE TRUTH: You can't wipe out the presence of feral cats in a 5000 acre area in which new, unneutered cats are constantly being abandoned or lost and then reproducing, and where there are plentiful food sources. Only Trap-Neuter-Return can, over time, reduce the numbers. The Port Authority's extermination effort is futile and will only result in new furry faces, not fewer. The killing is senseless.

這 2 個活動也很有義意, 我一定會大力支持! 也感謝所有熱心參與是次活動的義工們! ^_^

一直我也很想說為流浪貓群作大型絕育是唯一幫助到貓貓的方法, 不要再說什麼天生天養了! 撫心自問, 即使是在人類的世界, 如果沒有節制地生育, 像在非洲或落後的國家, 也造成許多嬰兒被遣棄或因父母沒能力照顧而生病甚致死亡的個案...人類尚可懂得在貧困時期求助及得到國際組織施以援手, 但試想想又有誰可以幫助到肌餓而又要哺育 bb 的狗媽媽和貓媽媽呢? 還有上天真的可以養活一頭又一頭瘦弱無助的小貓嗎? 任由流浪貓群一代又一代延續無止境的生育 cycle 不是順天而行, 而只是增加無助悲慘的個案! 我希望大家能正視問題, 尋求最佳方案, 才是理智的處理流浪貓/狗問題! 責任不在天, 而是事在人為!
