Salvi (free-ranging pet)

Salvi - 17 May 2006, PM (Phone Cam) First sighted in the night of 8 Jan 06, in the Street Gangs' buffer zone between Areas 1 and 2, Salvi was estimated to be between 6 mths to less than 1 yr old at that time. She was very thin, and wore a worn red collar with a bell. Bt she was not interested in food - dry only, wet only, dry and wet... nothing interested her. We assumed she was a free-roaming pet, as she wasn't panicky like most abandoned pets and yet had no fear of strangers. It was almost too easy to pop into the carrier for her appointment with mojo-removal the next day, 9 Jan 06. Lucky we caught her, Ivan the Terrible, then still brimming with mojo, was stalking her, a shadow in the dark. Salvi was released on 11 Jan. Since then, we've seen her at the same place most nights for about 2 weeks or so. She was still not interested to eat our dinner offerings - though she was cetainly hungry. She just takes a few eager sniffs and wander off. By this time, we suspected her to be a free-ranging pet who was abandoned. She had the air of a kid waiting for mum and dad to come fetch her. It was heartbreaking, and we worried for her health, seeing her condition and her lack of appetite. After that first fortnight, she disappeared. We could only comfort ourselves with the fact that her mojo has been removed. But we needn't have worried. A month or so later, we spotted her again. She had become somebody else's free roaming pet in Area 1! The boy who claimed to be her owner, said she just appeared one day about a month ago, and he had never seen her before then. His family decided to feed her, and so that was how she became his pet. We couldn't get him to understand the importance of keeping her indoors though. Or anything else that mattered. But we've not given up hope. We're waiting for help with translating a flyer we intend to use into Malay. Then we're going to try again. Salvi's not so skinny anymore of course, I just hope to get the message across to her family before she got into trouble. She's been abandoned before, and she deserves some stability and happiness. - Go to Pawprints: TNRM - Go to SINGAPORE UGLY / Casefile: Cruel Singapore.
