Street Cats

Singapore grapples with a significant issue concerning the welfare of street cats. Approximately 50,000 feral (born wild) or stray (abandoned) cats currently endure life on the streets.

This crisis is exacerbated by unlicensed ‘backyard’ breeders who trade cats without professional expertise or concern for their well-being. Often, these transactions are camouflaged through advertisements offering ‘kittens with adoption fees’ or ‘in exchange for cat food’ to circumvent legal restrictions. Halting support to these unethical businesses and raising awareness about their practices stands as the most effective means to restrict their activities.

Furthermore, the failure to sterilize cats and allowing them to roam freely results in rapid breeding, contributing significantly to the huge population of unwanted cats. Sadly, once these kittens outgrow their cuteness or become less desirable, they are often abandoned on the streets.

In 16 months, 1 unspayed cat can lead to 32 more street cats

Consider this: in just 16 months, one unspayed cat can lead to the birth of 32 more cats. LUNI Singapore intervenes by conducting TNR initiatives (Trap, Neuter, and Return) as a primary measure.

Additionally, we specialize in rescuing, socializing, fostering, and rehoming kittens and cats. Operating without a shelter and relying on a limited number of fosterers, we concentrate on rehoming kittens and cats capable of adapting to family life. Ensuring our fosterers provide a nurturing family environment facilitates the transition from street life to a loving home.

For adult feral cats accustomed to street living we encourage and organise TNR and regular feeding. Many feeders view these street cats as their own, finding immense joy and purpose in nurturing them.

Presently, we assist a network of over a dozen, mostly elderly or then low income feeders across Singapore by providing monthly food donations to responsibly nourish street cats. Additionally, we offer support with TNR initiatives and provide medical care when necessary.
