hello everyone. thank you for all the kind words i have been receiving about dear little socks. i really hope she is in a better place now. i know some are wondering what happens here in cases of animal cruelty.. well honestly, not much. people can report cases of cruelty to SPCA Selangor but there is little that SPCA can do. SPCA inspectors will go and investigate and gather whatever evidence they can, but they can't prosecute or even seize an animal living in a bad situation without permission and accompaniment from the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS). DVS is a government body and useless. Even with evidence gathered by SPCA inspectorate, including photos and once even a confession and the bodies of abused animals, DVS has failed to take action. they always say there isn't enough evidence to prosecute. they're lazy and don't give a flying fuck about animal welfare at all. word is, they haven't prosecuted a single cruelty case for SPCA in years.
anyway.. i also have a bit of news. i've got yet another foster kitten, tutti frutti. i found this one while driving home from SPCA's adoption drive in bangsar shopping center today. she's about 3 and a half to 4 months old.. white with small black patches. she's got some black smudges on her face and her long skinny tail is black with a white tip. actually she was part of a litter of 4 but i don't know if i'll be able to get her siblings. she was eating food left on the sidewalk with her 3 siblings. they all dashed off as i approached, but tutti frutti was too slow so i grabbed her and stuffed her into a carrier. she was a little freaked at first but after a couple of hours she was fine. she's very sweet and affectionate with a tiny little voice. i'll bring her to the vet tomorrow and hopefully she and santo will be totally ready for adoption soon. i've got new photos of santo to upload and i've got to take some photos of tutti but i'll do all that tomorrow. its 1am now and i've got to wake up at the buttcrack of dawn for work.
tutti frutti got her name because 2 of the chicas from SPCA and i ate 60 ringgit worth of tutti frutti frozen yogurt and toppings today. hell yeahhhhhh baby.. it was gooooooood..
