EDIT (Added 17 Oct 06): Dear friends, thank you for the stars that you continue sending even though I've hardly come back to anymore.

I've had to stay away because of work - the work that keeps food on the table, and the work that we do for the homeless cats - Trap-Neuter-Release Management (TNRM).

I may not stick around much but that doesn't mean we can't keep in touch. We are documenting our TNRM work via a blog - Tipped Ear Clan. I'm posting there as calsifer. Do say "Hi" if you drop by.

About Me ======================================
NOTE: Making friends is not as difficult as nurturing friends - I'd like to know who my friends are, so please send me an intro if you'd like to friend me, I prefer not to accept a simple add friend request as I can't cope, and I already feel guilty for not having enough time to know the friends I do have. Thanks.

I share this wish with my sister, Boon Yeong: "I wish people will respect and treat animals as equals capable of feeling joy, sadness and pain, respect and stop destroying our environment. People must learn to understand that humans do not own this planet."

Passivity is the bane of Conscience. Our awareness is the hope of the underpriviledged among us and voiceless animals.

"Many men stumble across the truth, but most manage to pick themselves up and continue as if nothing had happened."- Winston Churchill


A book geek who enjoys wise-cracks and is a closet writer, I'm also a tree-hugger who likes loud music, and have a penchant for taking photos of nature and stray cats. My sister and I have 5 cats, all street-cats who decided to adopt us. Plus my sister runs what can only be termed a mini syndicate - she feeds strays. Of course, we also do the occassional cat rescue - just to liven up life in this oppressive concrete jungle.

About meat-eating: the same quandary of a meat-eating animal lover can be posed to a vegetarian tree-lover. Rather, it is the process by which meat get to the table that really gets my goat *pun half-intended =P* ; from inhumane methods of breeding and raising livestock to the manner in which they are slaughtered and the totally deplorable ways the 'leftovers' are 'utilized'. Is it any wonder that in the last THIRTY years, we've had pandemic scares from BSE, Ebola, to SARS, and now Bird Flu? Really, even putting altruism aside for the sceptics of animal welfare and rights, everything comes back at us ultimately because we're eating it - that's really some food for thought. So: be kind to animals and to the environment because at the end of things, it is compassion to ourselves too.

"Tomorrow these innocent creatures will die for our collective sins. They will die because we are an arrogant and ignorant species, divine legends in our own perverse self-glorified minds, and unfit to proclaim ourselves superior to anything. For of all these species on this Earth, we are the most deceitful, most violent, and most unnatural, and what we sow we shall reap -- thousandfold." -- Capt Paul Watson, Farley Mowat log, 11 Apr 2005, 1030 Hours ADT, (the Sea Shepard Conservancy's anti-Canadian seal slaughter campaign 2005).

"Animals cannot speak, but can you and I not speak for them and represent them? Let us all feel their silent cry of agony and let us all help that cry to be heard in the world."
-- Rukmini Devi Arundale
