cat in the city

CAT in the CITY

12112010(072)goio

when I arrived here in manila I was surprised to see a lot of stray cats all over the place. somehow I feel sorry for them and said to myself that if I become a millionaire I will put up a shelter for these stray cats in the metro. but for now, this is the least that I can do.

my friend ric also a blogger spends his spare time feeding stray cats in the metro. I joined him one time to see the cat who stays at makati stocks exchange but unfortunately the cat was nowhere to be found. when I finally moved to makati I met this adorable cat who found his home at the tallest building in the philippines which is the PBCom tower.

I really don’t know how he got here and how he is surviving. the cat is still a kid and he is all alone. he finds shelter at a small crack hole or space at the side of the building.

I don’t know if the management of PBCom knows about the cat but it was nice of them to let the cat stay…

 

I’ve seen a lot of people how they treated those cats so badly especially the ones along the bay area at MOA…THEY TRY TO THROW THINGS AT THEM WHILE SCAVENGING FOR FOOD AND IT REALLY HURTS! AND THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR.

I also want to share this pic taken along the street going to cash n carry makati. the newly born kittens were dumped in a trash can. good thing one of the pedicab drivers was kind enough to feed them and put them in an improvised shelter in a vacant space along the street.

when I was walking along edsa I saw this ad by PURINA together with PAWS about their HOMELESS NOT WORTHLESS CAMPAIGN and I was really moved. I’m not part of them but I fully support the cause and hope you do too. lets bring awareness that these cats are not worthless, they’re just homeless!

  12. @axl...salamat...di lang sa mga cats kundi sa lahat ng bagay..

    @yanah...tama ka, marami nga ang nakaugalian na magligaw o magtapon ng pusa o aso lalo na sa probinsya. naalala ko na nung bata ako eh maraming nagliligaw ng pusa sa probinsya namin...yung iba eh nilalagay sa plastik at tinatapon na lang sa ilog.

    @emmanuel...kung may bahay lang sana kami dito sa manila eh inampon ko na yung pusa..hehe...

    @lhuloy...mahilig din ako sa pusa pero sa totoo lang eh mas mahilig ako sa aso..u

    @kristia...salamat sa pagbisita at pagfollow..

    @xprosaic...salamat...nainspire lang talaga ako dun sa isang blogger na nakilala ko dito sa manila na maraming pinapakain na pusa during his free time...

    @biboy...agree ako sa sinabi mo parekoy...yup sa makati nga.. sa paseo.

    @dom...wow thanks dom! i used to work at valero st. behind pbcom tower so palagi kong dinadaan tong pusang to. tama ka, because of our busy lives eh we tend to not notice the little things but if we do...we start seeing the world in a different perspective and start making a difference even as simple as feeding a stray cat. u

    @bino...dog lover din ako...i also admire PAWS..

    @mark..uu may butas o parang maliit na crack yung building...ambait mo rin pala bro...saludo ako sayo..

    @brian...wow gusto ko yan sir brian...kahit anung bundok eh diko aayawan yan o kaya kahit na anung adventure basta free ako eh invite nyo lang ako..

  15. @rico...bakit namatay pusa mo rico?

    @ ms. ching...salamat sa pagbisita...sayang wala me nakitang aso..bawal ba magpicture dun? kaya siguro di ako sinita kasi cellphone lang gamit ko..hehe

    sa valero ako dati at mas malapit office ko sa rcbc kaysa sa pbcom. ilang tambling nga!

  17. damn i felt bad after seeing those disturbing photos. pati ung pbcom cat sana he is still alive. we can report this to paws or cara and see if they can have the poor kitten adopted out.
