Happy Endings  
 

Here are some of the many successful adoptions we have had at the SPCA.

If you have adopted from us before and have a story to share with us, please email us at education@spca.org.sg, along with a short write-up of your life with the new member of the family and photos to go with the story.

** One of our adopted pet cats Gandalf has played an important role in the life of Gina Ho and family. We thank her for sharing how Gandalf has helped her husband Edgar Lu cope better in his illness. It is another testament to the fact that pets are a wonderful comfort and good stress relievers. You may wish to read Mr Lu's blog here.

 

Totally Tabby (Part 2)

On the 26 May 2014, Tabby celebrated her 13th birthday. I adopted Tabby from the SPCA a little over ten years ago on 27 Apr 2004.  Her name then was ‘Baby’. Tabby had been recently diagnosed with the early stages of diabetes. One day, she started showing signs of sickness so I brought her to the vet only to find that she had high glucose levels in her blood. After more tests and examinations, she was given a prescription of tablets from a human pharmacy. Tabby needed to take half a tablet in the morning and half a tablet in the evening mixed with food but this clever girl took the tablet directly from her plate when she was given her dry food for the evening.

The tablet medication however did not result in any signs of improvement so she switched to an insulin injection just like human diabetic patients get (but with a lower dosage). I could see Tabby’s condition improving after a few sessions.  I probably have to send her back to the vet to check her blood glucose level every now and then.

Honestly, once you adopt a pet,  it is a lifelong commitment. Tabby gave me her wonderful company all these years and I cannot just let her health deteriorate if there is treatment available. I understand that the treatment is costly but seeing her health deteriorating is painful to see. The cost is not an issue!  Having said that, I have no idea how many more years Tabby has left.  I just want to do my very best for her so that the rest of her days are the happiest.

Nelly

We adopted Nelly in early March 2014. Nelly spent the first two-three weeks huddled in the bedroom cupboard amongst my pashminas. She was very timid and frightened of noises and did not like being picked up. However, overtime, this lovely two-year-old tabby started to relax, explore the house and got to know her new family. Fast forward to three months later, and Nelly is not only a bit heavier but she is the center of the household. She is chatty and playful and adores playing ball with our two sons, aged six and seven. She loves to sit and watch them play TV games and she’s always keen for company and snuggles. Nelly is a truly a loving and affectionate family member! We all adore our Nelly!

Zealous Zoe

After three or four days of mostly hiding in a room and being incredibly timid, Zoe (formerly Bamboo) is finally opening up to our family! She has been discovering the house and finding cosy places to nap. Our other two cats did not completely warm up to her in the beginning but have now accepted her without any fuss. In fact, she has started to get really comfortable with our 2-year-old female. She is really sweet and laps up all of the attention we are shamelessly showering her with.

This is surely another happy ending at the SPCA, but a new beginning for Zoe.

Hippity Hopping Hippo the Dog

Hello, my name is Hippo! I was adopted from the Singapore SPCA in September 2000. My name was originally Toto but my new owners thought that that was a little silly so they renamed me Hippo! As you can probably tell from my adoption date, I am getting on a bit in age. While my health is good, I am a little slower than I used to be though not so slow that I can’t chase the odd squirrel.

I am writing to thank you for giving me such a good start in life and for introducing me to my human owners, Jonathan and Nicola Short. After I was adopted, I lived with my new family, Jackson (another SPCA alum), Caterpillar (a cat found in the middle of Mount Pleasant Road) and the humans for three years. Shorty, the male human, then relocated to New York so our family was split. Caterpillar stayed in Singapore with some friends while Jackson moved to the United Kingdom. I moved to the Big Apple with my humans. I arrived in September 2003 and even though the city was big, noisy and scary at first, I have grown to love it. My humans even got me my personal dog walker named Latanya, who is wonderful. We live in Brooklyn now, which is way cooler than Manhattan and I love taking my humans around my "hood".

I have travelled all over the United States, including Washington, Maine, Vermont and Rhode Island. Basically, the entire eastern seaboard. My favourite place apart from Brooklyn is Vermont. My humans bought a place in there a few years after we moved here and since I was born in the tropics, you can imagine that snow was a big shock when I first encountered it! A whole six feet! Let's put it this way I've had to grow some belly fur just to keep myself warm. The smells in Vermont are amazing; bears, moose, deer and even wolves! The only down side is the cold. When it's -30°C outside you pee and poop quickly, then race back to the warmth of the toasty fireplace. In the summer, Vermont is glorious! I get to hang out on my front deck and in the garden all day long.

Thank you again for rescuing me and giving me the chance to travel. I wish all the animals at the SPCA luck and perhaps some happy travels out into the big wide world!

 

   
 
   

Tender Teddy

Charles was adopted on 1 May 2014. We are very lucky to have this amazing and affectionate cat. It is a pleasure to have him in our cozy home.

We renamed him Teddy Charles because he is one handsome British Shorthair. Although he is six years old, he is still quite active and he enjoys our company. He loves tummy rubs. It is true that, "a house without a cat, is not a home". We took care of my aunt's cat for a year while she was abroad and now that she is back, we really missed having a little companion around the house. So we decided, after a few weeks, that we were going to adopt.We visited the SPCA website and saw Teddy and decided to visit him. He was quiet and shy at first, but I knew that he was the cat for me. It was not long after, we finally made the decision as a family to adopt him.

When we first brought him home, he was quite tentative and timid about his new environment. However, after a few hours, he warmed up to us. His favourite "spot" is near our living room window! It has only been three days since the adoption but he is aready such a joy to have in our home. As I am away due to National Service, having Teddy around now is something I can look forward to whenever I book out. Words can't express how much I love Teddy.

We have read online that British Shorthairs are not exactly lap cats and hate being carried around. Teddy is the total opposite; he is such a gentle, loving and affectionate cat, which makes us adore him even more!

We would like to thank the SPCA, especially all the volunteers, who were so helpful and kind to us.
