Hello from Indonesia

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello there, I am an English woman, currently living in Indonesia, where I am finding no end of unfortunate felines in need of help (or rather they are finding me!) I've taken five kittens in during the past 3 weeks (one of whom died sadly) and its pretty time consuming. Especially as two of them are orphaned newborns who need feeding every 3-4 hours day and night. I am looking for home for three of the kittens as I may be leaving Indonesia earlier than expected and can only afford to take one home with me.
Also, I am trying to set up a charity, for a sanctuary but more importantly a neutering program as Indonesia is over run with starving feral cats and neutering here seems to be a concept that noone has heard of.

I have posted photos of my brood on the 'kitten 2008' thread.

I think that's a really wonderful thing you're doing for those cats - I can imagine the process of getting even just one cat home to England would be an expensive, time consuming and complicated procedure, am I right?

I hope they find great homes...

Yes, the only quote I've had for quarantine so far is £1400 (about $2800) and thats before the price of the flight! Haven't checked those out yet. I can't really afford it but'll probably do it anyway. (If only I could squeeze the tinies in my lunch box and take them home, they'd have a much better chance of a good home in England)

Perhaps you could get sponsorship to bring them to England. I am thinking of animal charities or something.

Hi Joy and welcome!

When I attended the Asia for Animals conference in Singapore (the next one will be in Bali ) I met a few animal advocates from Indonesia. I can PM you the name of one if you wish.

Thanks, I'm not sure how long I will be staying here (I'm really not happy here, the cats are the only reason I'm still here), but any new animal welfare contacts will be undoubtedly be useful. Please do!
